Sugo Pasta Kitchen is set to open a third site in 2021, owners have confirmed.

The new venue will launch in the burgeoning Stanley Square area of Sale in November – with capacity available for around 40-50 covers.

Specialising in Southern Italian recipes, Sugo has proven a hugely popular addition to Greater Manchester since first launching in Altrincham in 2015.

The brand’s success saw an expansion to Ancoats three years later – with another restaurant opening up just around the corner from Cutting Room Square.

Sugo’s team originally teased plans for a third site back in December, asking fans on social media: “Where next, 2021?”


A couple of months later, the restaurant posted a teaser image of the M33 postcode – dropping a huge hint that the restaurant would be moving to the Sale area.

This week (July 1) – Sugo Pasta Kitchen’s owners confirmed the new site is “100% opening”.


Co-owner Michael De Martiis told The Manc: “In both Altrincham & Ancoats we came in at the beginning of a new food and drink revolution and we’ve got that same buzz with Stanley Square and Sale.

“We’re going to put our heart and soul into creating a Pasta Kitchen in the heart of Sale that will be cherished for generations to come.”

Like all restaurants in Greater Manchester, Sugo has found itself forced to close for huge chunks of the past 16 months.


The pasta kitchen did however continue to serve customers throughout lockdowns via takeaway service, with chefs even sharing some of their secret recipes online so fans could attempt to whip up the dishes at home.

Since reopening in 2021, the restaurant has continued to keep things fresh with a variety of new dishes appearing on the menu – from Strozzapreti with Tuscan sausage and portobello to Strascinate with Umbrian lentils, roasted peppers & pecorino.
