Sugo Italian @ Malvern Central @ Monday, March 27, 2017

Tuesday 21st March

Opposite Malvern Central is Sugo Italian, with 'Sugo' meaning the basic tomato sauce in pasta. Lured by a Liven deal we found ourselves here for an early pre-show dinner on a Tuesday Night. Spoiler - The pizza was much better than the movie!

With seats on the veranda (smoking), side and lovely air con inside! For it was a summer's day we secured a seat for one by the door I had a great view of the lantern lit part of the restaurant towards the back. Skylights added glossiness to the tables. 

It's an area full of strips of restaurants, hair dressers and the likes. Towards town hall is two burger places and froyo where the younger people hang out. Here it's mainly parents dinning with a couple kids. The place was much nicer than I'd expected, just going by the name I expected something like pizza hut with booths. 

Chargrilled seafood with red onion, oven roasted 
tomato, lemon and rocket $16 (Normally $24)

We ordered the seafood much to Andy's dismay, the most pricey pizza, hence best value - but only if you like pizza.

A thin but doughy base with crispy but not too crispy crust. Chucks of salmon, prawns and mussels scattered generously with cherry tomatoes and red onion. There wasn't lemon though which would have taken it up to the next level.

Lots of stringy mozzarella! Heavy on toppings without a cardboard like base, use the fork to support the front/nose of the slice.

Serves 1 boy or 2 of me, with a side salad. I eat everything, but just a tiny bit of everything.

By 6.45 the place was almost full! The crowd was 30 plus with the exception of one family.

Service was very friendly though I think she was new as she didn't know the pizza offer
I love being told the daily specials :P

A great place for any occasion from dinner for one to the family or a date. The atmosphere was nice and I've never been to a place that felt like this one, in two words: Fancy Sofia.

On Mondays and Tuesdays pizzas are $16 (normally they range from $17 margarita to $24 seafood) there's happy hour drink offers to accompany the pizzas.

$16 for a gourmet/non chain seafood pizza served on a cheeseboard is a pretty good deal especially on the veranda with fairy lights. Minus potential smokers. I feel like they've ruined outdoor dinning. But there's the great indoors!

Will we return? Sure, if we're after pizza and in the area.
