It used to be called Sugo's and apparently was a franchise of them so their menu is based off of it so the food is good and wine list compliments well. It tries and makes a good attempt at recreating Sugo but it is missing some Castalucci element. The restaurant is appealing and I cannot say the food wasn't good but there seems to be missing some creativity or authenticity...that may sound strange but my wife and I each got 2 different specials and both were topped with fried asparagus. That may sound trite but I've dined enough in NY/NJ to know that it isn't the same as Sugo. It still is really good so I don't want to discount that. The menu could have used more non-meat dishes. They had issues with their espresso machine so I was forced to drink coffee. They ran out of togo bags.
