Sugo offers an authentically Italian experience in the midst of Paris’s Japanese district. Arthur Dumait, who has traveled the world of luxury hospitality, designed Sugo as a tribute to Italian culture and its straightforward approach to gastronomy. The restaurant’s centerpiece? A pasta machine standing proudly, promising fresh (homemade every morning) and flavorful pasta. The concept is clear: convivial pasta dishes, served around a central island that seats up to twelve guests. Here, people share, laugh, and savor… just like in an Italian family home. In the kitchen, Victor, a childhood friend of Arthur Dumait, implements simple, traditional, but above all, generous recipes. The rich sauces are the heart of the concept. Ingredients, mainly imported from Italy, such as dried tomatoes from Catania or Pecorino Romano, ensure flawless authenticity. The menu features five permanent pasta recipes, with a daily special. The recipes change with the seasons, but the promise remains the same: hearty and delicious plates at an affordable price. We indulged in veal polpettes with Sugo sauce (€12) and an exemplary caponata (€10), then lasagnette (a bit overcooked) accompanied by a remarkable sauce made from Sardinian tomatoes confit for 4 hours in the oven (€14) and spaghettoni (perfectly al dente) cooked amatriciana style (€16). Traditional Spritz cocktails accompany a selection of natural and biodynamic wines. Save room for the tiramisu (€6), because at Sugo, they don’t play around when it comes to indulgence. At Sugo, every bite is a reminder of the simplicity and richness of Italian cuisine.
