We met with old friends here who recommended this restaurant. The inside was very upscale, the food was very good and the pastry case upfront at the entrance was amazing with a variety of different desserts.

Service was excellent, warm delicious bread and a side of olive oil w/balsamic was quickly brought to our table. Asked for a taster of wine we weren't sure about and waitress happy to assist. Ordered a glass of the Sangiovese, rigatoni in Bolognese and pizza with prosciutto and arugula. Naples style pizza was a first, don't think I'm a fan... More

Sunny patio for outdoor dining when the weather is good- or inside if it is on the cooler side. Great place for a group- call ahead and they will have your table ready! Solid tasty brunch choices- omelettes, which they will scramble, simple oatmeal, granola or filling breakfast sandwiches. Plenty of good Italian espresso, capuccino, and sweets to match! Parking...

Brick oven Margarita pizza the best. Wait staff very friendly. Save room for the gelato. The lemon was a slice of heaven.

The first time we had a take out and half the toppings was missing. Fair enough..we called in and got a 20dollar gift card. So we went back and decided to try something else on the menu besides pizza and pasta and it was average , pretty much everything is deep fried in some way or another. My dish also... More

I've eaten at eaten at Ugo several times, but have been careful with what I ordered. Too much garlic in a lot of the food; it's necessary to tell the server to have the cook ease up a lot on it. Food is average, but it's great to be able to sit outside and eat. On the other hand, their... More

The pasta is tasty! Fresh! My friend had pizza and he really enjoyed that too. All 4 of our meals were tasty. The service was mediocre but no real complaints other than we waited way too long to place our order.

This is one of our go to spots when we visit our kids in Culver City. They have both inside and patio seating, the food has always been good and they have a good wine selection.

I go to UGO a lot with my husband and friends as it is very close to my home and it's the perfect setting for anything from a casual coffee meeting to a happy-hour dinner. The service is mostly good, although they tend to get quite slow some times. The desserts, Italian ice cream, and coffee drinks are to die... More
