Figo Pasta in ATL!

ted | Jan 13, 2003 01:23 PM

Had dinner at Figo on Saturday night. It's located near the intersection of DeFoor and Collier, just up the street and opposite from Fox and Hounds pub.

It's like a downscale version of the original Pulcinella. Very few seats at a wall-mounted counter around the outside of the store-front. Most folks seemed to be picking up takeout. There were a few 4-tops outside the door, but it was way to cold to be dining there Sat. night.

As far as the food, all I can say is WOW. The menu is set up w/ a variety of pastas and sauces, mix and match. Mine, gemelli w/ a mushroom cream sauce, was $5 or $6, and had just tons of porcini flavor. My wife had the $9 special of ravioli w/ butternut squash filling, a cream sauce, and a little sauteed radicchio (as a bitter to play against the squash's sweetness).

Maybe it's just been a while since either of us had a cream sauce, but both of these really hit the spot, especially w/ the homemade bread to accompany and sop up the sauce. We also split a caesar salad, and couldn't have spent more than $20.

Highly recommended.
