Extraordinary – I was a little skeptic at first while arriving to the Howell Mill location. There was a long line and you had to order first and then be seated with a pepper shaker. I wondered to myself what I got myself into, but with the crowd that was there, I suppose you can't go wrong. I ordered myself a glass of wine...which came in a rocks glass. But what do you expect, it's a casual, family environment. What I enjoyed most was the option of choosing your pasta and then choosing your sauce, all for a mere $7.00. I also added a side of grilled chicken and fungi sauce on the side for a few bucks extra. One word: DELICIOUS. The food was so amazing that I completely forgot I was sipping wine out of a rocks glass and that the bread was really hard. That is how delicious the pasta was. I almost felt like I were in Italy.
Yum, homemade pasta and sauces... – They have butternut squash ravioli with like, a marscarpone cream sauce. And crab ravioli. Sometimes, I think about these raviolis. And my mouth waters. Literally!
well... – The food tasted really good going down, but I got real sick the next few days. So did my significant other. So did someone I told that I had gotton sick--- but that person got sick a year before. The cleanliness is VERY questionable.
good pasta – when i lived across town used to be a real treat to come here. now i live walking distance and it's one of my favorite parts of the neighborhood. get the zucca if you like cream sauces. also very reasonably priced for homemade pasta!
Get the mushroom ravioli! – The mushroom ravioli with the fungi sauce is AMAZING!!!!! We always get that one & one we hadn't tried before & split them... The prices are great. There's a nice dine-in area, but you also can't beat it for take out. Last time we tried a risotto with shrimp and YUM!
Good food, good price – I've been to both locations on Howell Mill and on Collier. I'd recommend the Howell Mill location if you are going on a date as there is more ambiance there and when I went, they had live music. The location on Collier is good if you are looking for a quick meal and no waiting for a table. You get to choose your pasta and sauce, and there are quite a few combinations to choose from. The price is low, but the portion is rather small. They had some good beer specials the time I went to the Collier Rd location. Good place to start the night off with, but be prepared to be hungry later in the night.
Fresh Italian cuisine prevails, and superfluous details are spare at this central eatery. – The Scene
Pasta-lovers, seemingly grateful that authentic Italian has arrived in West Midtown, lean over saucy dishes. A seat, especially at lunch or on weekend nights, is never guaranteed, and often lines are streaming out the door from the tiny counter where you place your order. Old-country trinkets, such as Italian-language cookbooks, black-and-white photos and hand-crank pasta makers, declare fidelity to Italian culture.
The kitchen reaches past cliches and serves Italian dishes straight from Grandma's house. The eggplant parmigiana appetizer avoids any trace of the bitter or mealy qualities that sometimes plague that dish. Rich salmone sauce pops with fresh peas, best for those with a hearty appetite. Crab and mushroom ravioli waste no space with fillers. The Bolognese is a little bland, though, and the arrabbiata is spicy hot. Save the basket of pre-meal bread to soak up extra sauce at the end of the meal.
Now Serving Alcohol – This place is so cute and inexpensive, I'd go even if the food weren't so good. I had the squash ravioli, which was great but rich. My caprese salad was good, too. They now serve alcohol (at least beer and wine, not sure about liquor) and charge a $10 corkage fee if you BYOB.
Great take-out! – I read about Figo Pasta in "Atlanta" magazine's "Best 25 Cheap Eats" and tried it out. I'm glad I did! The spinach and ricotta ravioli was wonderful! A big bowl of pasta was only $6.50 including tax. But, seating is quite limited and they don't serve alcohol, so it makes more of an ideal take-out restaurant.
priceless pasta – pasta is extremely good, it leaves you with a thrilling sensation in your mouth. Servings are not to big but just right to fill up your appetite. Service is truly genuine from the italians who work there.
