Contemporary Italian | Culver City, Westside

Ugo is an Italian restaurant that was established in 2002 with a focus on serving fresh cuisine in a welcoming and warm atmosphere. It achieves this by sourcing the freshest ingredients straight from Italy, like juicy tomatoes, as well as stone ground flour and the fresh fruit used in the house-made gelato.

Ugo is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast specialties include hot sandwiches like the Italian prosciutto with crucolo cheese, eggs, chopped zucchini, carrots and rustic bread. There is also Italian coffee specialties and espresso options like mochas, lattes and authentic cold-pressed coffee blends. These go well with Ugo's many dessert options, such as the light and airy homemade tiramisu.
