We ate on patio. Cool outside so heater was on. Half price pasta on Sunday is a good value and pasta was great.
Waitress was attentive but let us enjoy dinner. She was friendly and professional. Would recommend.

Really good food & great presentation! Swordfish was quite good but just slightly overcooked. Great service. Some items were a little overpriced. Would recommend this restaurant.

Another excellent meal. The outdoor seating is very nice. Good service and drinks. We had pizza, a bean salad, and a lobster pasta dish. All were very good. The bean salad was especially interesting---nice heat.

Another wonderful meal. This was my sister's first visit to our favorite restaurant and we sat outside in the lovely weather. Frank was as always so attentive and the sangria was fantastic. Chef Austin brought out an unbelievable eggplant appetizer and two of us don't normally EAT eggplant and it was phenomenal. We shared dishes and lingered until close, and enjoyed chatting with Chef and enjoying the food and weather. Expand your taste buds - the grilled calamari is excellent and an espresso martini for dessert is perfect. We will be back in two weeks.

Very nice meal. Pretty outdoor setting. Good service. Pasta was excellent. My daughter, a picky eater, said, "This actually tastes good", about the pepperoni pizza.

Nothing went well at this place. Experience was abysmal. Expensive food and nothing - not even bread - comes with the meal. Glasses of wine are outrageously priced. Service was just terrible - slow, slow, slow and the waiter was unfriendly and unhelpful. And final checks were wrong, but rather than wait again, we fixed the mixed up bills ourselves. Took our dining club there and was so embarrassed by this bad experience. Don't go to this place!!

This restaurant is such a gem! Have heard about it for awhile, but it’s off the beaten path a bit for me. Went there with some friends – each one of us got an entrée that was just as good as the next. The Pappardelle was wonderful and beautifully plated, the flatbreads were perfectly baked and I ordered the hamburger which was spot on and the french fries were addicting. During this time of Covid the restaurant does a great job with keeping the tables distanced and the servers are masked and yet still manage to be so helpful and engaging. Looking forward to the next time we go!

We went on Wednesday 1/2 price bottle Wednesday and thoroughly enjoyed our wine and meal. We had the chefs special pizza which was ricotta, goat cheese, honey drizzle and peal truffles. Wow! Awesome! Hubby had the chicken with giardinare which is a favorite of his and did not disappoint. Restaurant is practicing safety measures and great attentive service. Highly recommend for quality food. Price point is moderate, but worth it for the quality.

My friend ordered the lasagna; it was mediocre. The cheese board was fabulous. Although there was only one other table occupied in the whole restaurant, we had to beg and beg and wait and wait for a refill on our drinks I asked for more water and never received any. There was a large family sitting a bit away from our table, but the grandpa and young toddler kept wandering very close to our table several times and neither wore a mask. It made us both so uncomfortable that we had to leave.

What a wonderful evening ate Ch Figata, we are new to the area and wanted to finally try a nearby restaurant. After a lot of research I zeroed in here. It was delightful! Everything on the menu looked fantastic and the items we ordered were. They have a beautiful wine list and our server, Juan, helped us pick a wonderful chianti. Juan was very knowledgeable about the food and wines, he was also a fantastic server that helped to make my wife's birthday special. You will not be dissapointed.

We had the sixteen layer lasagna and the BYO pizza. Husband declared the lasagna “very good” and that pizza crust is probably one of my favorites ever. Portion size was just right Service was great! We’ll go again.

We really enjoyed the restaurant. Due to covid, we ate outside, and I'm glad it was available. The food was yummy. My husband had osso bucco, and I had the pizza. Their pizza dough is aged for a couple days, and has a unique, hearty taste. Be sure to check this place out!

We used to eat at Che Figata's a couple times a month. They had a great $10 per entree menu that was a great value. Last year they stopped with that meal deal. We still have gone a couple time and the quality of the food has diminished greatly. We order the calamari. It was $16 and was a tiny portion that seemed like the end of a frozen bag. There was nothing that looked like squid. We sent it back and round 2 was the same. The General Manager did comp it for us and excepted our feedback. I would warn don't order it unless you ask a lot of questions. Next the Lasagna it used to be the bomb. Just amazing back in mid 2019. Now it is much different and has carrots in it and is very soupy. I don't know what happened. Maybe they got a new chef. Definitely the shut down for Corona has hurt them as they don't get the business crowd they once got. So I worry how fresh the food is. Message to management is return to what you had in mid 2019 - the Lasagna and the specials meals.

I will say however they are handling outdoor seating and the waiters are all wearing masks and being very clean and proper for the times.

While I appreciate them comping my appetizer I won't be back for sometime and am very sad about it. It is close to my house and I like that it was upscale and not too busy.

Overall fantastic meal! Started with the octopus appetizer and burrito salad. I had the Caccio e Pepe, my husband had the Ragu and our guest had the gnocchi. Only 2 complaints ... service was too fast - brought the appetizer and salad at the same time when we asked for the appetizer first; and the other issue was the short rib and sausage in the ragu were dry ... like they had been under the warmer for a loooong time.

We just dined back at che fegata. They did an outstanding job setting up tables outside and it was a beautiful night for it. Our water Frankie was a delight smiling all the time and happy to be serving even with a mask on ! The food is always outstanding from the charcuterie bird to the veal shank and right on through to the bolognese ! Go soon you’ll be delighted !

Maybe it is due to COVID-19, but everything seems to have been lacking. Our server didn’t seem to know the menu. Ever time we ordered something, we would have to say it a second time and point to the menu for him to see what we ordered and write it down. The food came out very fast which was nice but the dishes we ordered just were not as good as in our prior visits. It also would have been nice if they could have provided a cocktail menu, either paper or digits, but nothing despite our request. This won’t be my last time here but if our experience is the same next time around, it might.
