Sugo Pasta Kitchen Altrincham, 22 Shaws Road, Altrincham, WA14 1QU – Visit Now

Based in Altrincham’s refined Stamford Quarter, Sugo Pasta Kitchen Altrincham is the town’s go-to destination for plates of traditional Italian pasta, as well as an impressive variety of vegan and gluten-free dishes.

The restaurant itself is a delight. Intimate without feeling stuffy, and packed with charm and character. Expect rustic wooden tables, laid out for sharing, plus an open kitchen delivering a wealth of delicious aromas throughout the space. Think the Oxo kid adverts from the 1980s but with next-level Italian cuisine as the provenance.

Packed with charm and character

The menu deserves a deep dive all of its own, but as a starting point, we heartily recommend the lamb meatballs for starters. Handmade ovine orbs, perfectly spiced, teamed with sweet onion ragu, pea and mint ricotta, pecorino cheese and garlic breadcrumbs. It’s an inspired mix of taste and texture and not something you’ll forget in a hurry.

When it comes to mains, naturally, pasta is the order of the day. And this isn’t just any old pasta, this is fresh Pugliese pasta carefully made by the Ligorio family in San Vito, Puglia. They’re all beautiful in their own right, but our top recommendation has to go to the Sugo Scoglio, particularly for lovers of fresh seafood. This majestic plate consists of cavatelli pasta shells, tumbled up with king prawns, baby squid and mussels, wonderfully-sweet datterini tomatoes, plus just the right amount of chilli and ginger to give a fiery – and delicious – kick.

The vanilla pannacotta comes highly recommended, served with the current seasonal fruit – a smooth, memorable way to finish off a wickedly authentic Italian meal.

And of course, there’s a neat list of Italian wines to go along with the food. Pick your favourite region, or simply let the experts at Sugo help you decide. If you’re a fan of pasta or Italian cuisine in general, you’re certain to be impressed by Sugo Pasta Kitchen Altrincham.
