Very disappointing dinner. We got a warm welcome from the Hostess and that was the highlight. Our server was mediocre. He was not very attentive. He got the job done but barely spoke 2 words to us other than to take our order. The bread with the burrata appetizer was burnt. The chicken scalloppini was dry and tough and the portion was not very generous but the pasta portion for an adult male was a joke. Its noodles. Restaurants make their biggest mark up on pasta so why not fill up the bowl? There were about 20 rigatoni noodles cut in half. The table next to us had burnt crust pizza. The place has a good vibe but be careful if you are going for anything other than drinks as the food is not good.

Extremely noisy environment and lack of propper cleaning around and at the table.
The selection of chairs adds up to the noise and the ceiling choice bounces back on the concrete floor all the sound.
Poor technical design.

The wait staff were friendly and very helpful, although they did leave us standing out in the cold for 10 minutes. Granted, we were there 10 minutes before they opened for lunch but it would have been so easy for them to invite us in so we could get something to drink at the bar. The staff were all in there, anyway. As the place filled up over the half hour before noon, the noise became unbearable, so much so that we could not carry on a conversation at a very small table. Why they thought they needed "music" in this cacophonous room is incomprehensible to me. The food was a disappointment. I had a "special", steak salad, made with a very tough piece of meat which had no flavour, at all. We were disappointed with the over-all experience, especially after having read a few very positive reviews about the place beforehand. They need much improvement, especially in this area where there are many eateries competing with them.

The ambience is modern and beautiful, service was also great. Food is very average though: I had the chicken which was too salty, my friend had pasta which was uncooked. I might go back for drinks, but not the food for sure.

I'm fairly certain proximity to and the openness of the kitchen was causing irritation in my eyes. Other than that it was very nice. Awesome food and friendly staff - maybe they could use a few more chairs for when you have to wait for a table.

Our server completely ripped us off and was pushing for us to buy the most expensive wine and food orders. My husband ordered a simple cocktail not on the menu and it was $20! Which is ridiculous considering it was made with Canadian club rye. I am vegetarian and the server told me I could add arugula to my pizza instead of the meat but didn’t mention it would be an extra $10. Overall the food was good but we were very unhappy about the up charging and disrespectful service.

A good choice for Entertainment District dining. The food is good, the liquor a little overpriced.
Very vibrant crowd so a bit noisy.

We always love coming to Figo. Our favourite server recognized us even though we live out of town and don’t dine in Toronto very frequently. She made us feel very welcome and offered us a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. What a nice touch!!! Thank you!

Our waitress was very good and attentive but the food was lacking. My wife’s meal tasted excellent. Mine was just so-so, noodles undercooked. Very, VERY noisy. We were rushed, in and out in 45 minutes. Not the nice Italian experience I was hoping to find. A little bit on the expensive side considering the humdrum quality of the food and the portion sizes. No garlic bread, just FYI.

This beautiful spot is high on our list to return. Everything about it was excellent. We were in a corner table, so did not find it too noisy.
We ordered a variety of plates and shares them amongst the 5 of us. This way we tasted even more of the delicious dishes. All were good. We left feeling fully satiated, but not overfull.
An excellent spot to eat and handy to the TTC.
Thank you.

Food was good. We enjoyed the pecorino appetizer, the seafood pasta and the gnocchi. I thought that the food was reasonably priced but the wine was ridiculously expensive. Choices ranged from $65 up for nothing spectacular. We also found that the restaurant was very loud when filled. My friend and I were shouting at each other across the table.

The service was very good, but when the food comes within 10 minutes of ordering you know that gnocchi was not hand made. The sauce and gnocchi were warm-ish. The grangano had been in an opened bottle too long. Great servery personnel, however, for the price there is far far better food nearby.

Figo is an outstanding choice for lunch or dinner ... business or social. All pizza is superb, especially soppressata and all of the appetizers (especially octopus, honey ricotta and fried zucchini) and main courses (we recommend spaghetti a limone and cacio e pepe) are equally spectacular. Everyone is pleasant and they go out of their way to make every visit special. We obviously love this place

The food was delicious and fresh! However, I would not recommend coming here to celebrate a special occasion. Server did not acknowledge the special event and our visit felt very rushed as we were in and out within half an hour. Very cute restaurant inside, good for a quick bite to eat if you don't mind not so great service.
