Figo is another one of my favorite spots to grab lunch. Its fast, tasty and cost effective. This osteria allows you to customize your Italian meal. Pick you pasta. Pick your sauce. And maybe add some meat. The options are endless! Whole wheat penne, pesto sauce, with chicken! Crab ravioli with mushroom sauce! Linguine, arrabiatta sauce, with shrimp!
Now Figo offers lunch specials. My favorite is the salad and short pasta combo. I usually get the Caesar salad served with spinach penne with pecorino and lemon sauce. The soup/salad and sandwich combo is also a good bet. The portions are decent for $6-8, you can’t really beat it!
I love going in to order at the counter and being given a customized pepper grinder as the marker for whatever table I choose. Like any Italian restaurant, olive oil and bread with parmesan comes to your table as a starter. The atmosphere is light and casual. And I always feel more than welcome by the friendly staff and even the cooks in the open kitchen!
I don’t eat at Figo every day, but whenever I dine there- I feel that urge to go back for my next meal. And with locations across Atlanta, it’s very easy to do!
PS- ask for additional sauce if you order the Bolognese.
