Delish!!! – Great food and varying menu.. I go there once a week just to have the home made soups. 99% of the time they are delicious. I also always get the figo chicken salad which is awesome as well.
Yummy pasta – The build it yourself pasta thing is great at Figo. We love the different pastas and the sauces. Our favorites are the mushroom sauce, the butternut squash ravioli, the artichoke ravioli (fried as an appetizer), and the spicy tomato sauce. The service is usually fast, which is nice when you just want a quick bite to eat.
Great Pasta on the cheap – I love this place! It's 5 mins. from campus (Tech), has great pasta at a very reasonable price, and it's never really that crowded. Excellent place to take a date on the cheap.
best restaurant in town – i was very greatfull to take my daughter to this place. The food are really good. my daughter love that restaurant. overall we have great time there. i would recomand to everybody love italian food.
Bad Experience! – My wife and I went out for a date and she wanted to go to Figo. We had an hour before our movie, waited in line for 15 minuets. Then as we were getting close to ordering the party of 3 in front of us turned into a party of 12! They were willing to stand in line like eveyone else, t it was Figo's decision to add the 9 extra people in line. We left. Thanks Figo.We went to Six Feet Under instead.
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???!!! – Get going! This place is the real deal! Fresh made pastas with your choice of sauces - what more could you want in a carbohydrate?!
This place is so good, everyone has a favorite and they are all unique to us. The past is fresh made and awesome. The sauces are simple to unique. The bread it average, but the olive oil is robust and amkes up for it! I love the three cheese ravioli with checca. One lady loves the fungi ravioli w/fungi sauce. Another loves the salads. Something for everyone.
Grab a freind and get in line - you'll be glad you did!
Great food at great prices – I'm so glad I found this place! Was initially worried when I had to stand in line just to get in the door to put my order in, and didn't realize you order at the counter. However, once you sit down, it's just like any other dining experience, where they wait on your table as required. I had the gnocchi with tomato/mozzerella sauce and it was beyond good. I will probably get that when I go back. The spinach salad with goat cheese was really great, and we had a nice bottle of cabernet for like $20. Would recommend this place to anyone that likes good italian/pasta.
After five visits the negative out weighs the positive – Like most first timers I originally was thinking, good pasta, good prices, and a taste of Italy right here in Atlanta.
The pasta is still okay but it really doesn't make you think you are in Modena. The olive and bread served after you are seated is a nice touch but I never saw this in Modena, Reggio, Bologna or any other Italian town. The only thing that makes you think of Italy is the 1938 picture of the old gentleman giving the high sign. Figos has a trendy atmosphere.
The unpleasant experiences and bland eating can never be blamed on Italy. There are the untrained high school servers with the bungled orders and even the orders that just never were entered. They will be doctors, lawyers, and engineers someday but today they are a disaster. But don't blame the servers, the food is no better. After the pasta every thing else is bland and tasteless. It's time for me to move on and for Figos to redo its' menu and business plan.
