Sugo's - come out of South.Kensington tube station, turn right, right again, and it's on your right. It's a small, apparently family-run, Italian restaurant. In fact, all of the Italian restaurants along that stretch appear to be run by the same family, or at least, a very close knit community of people. Lunch time is a good time to visit. They have a 'cheap' set menu, with a choice of pizza or pasta from a list of 6. With a soft drink or glass of wine, and coffee or ice cream for dessert, all at a reasonable 4.99 on their "lunchtime special", it is a very reasonable price for that area of London. Pizzas are deliciously thin and crunchy - what is now called "traditional Italian style". On the full menu, there must be 10-15 different pizzas on offer, plus a similar amount of pasta and main course dishes. There are also 2 soups on offer, but as I discovered after several visits, the one I like most is based on a bacon stock! Not very well marked for the vegetarian. :-< I have also been served fish on my "penne broccoli", which I was foolish enough to not check was vegetarian before ordering. Service can be a little wanting. The girls that serve are all Italian, and can be a little brusque, at their best. The waitress with the bacon-soup didn't seem to understand that bacon broth is just as unvegetarian as a soup with pieces of bacon in it, which was somewhat annoying.
