Sugo is great at Tommy Sugo

This wintery evening we stopped in at Tommy Sugo, a pop up store located at Stimulatte Café in Subiaco.

It's a cool concept and the name is somewhat catchy too. Fresh pasta and great ingredients combined with an Italian heritage are three standouts from Tommy Sugo’s story and philosophy.

The shot of espresso in one cup and a scoop of ice cream in the other. ...
