Service was terrible. Have been here several times and not sure what was going on but we waited almost an hour to order our dinner and it took a long time. No apologies from waiter either. Won’t be going back.

Well this place is always a favorite and usually very quiet but this visit was different. They sat us in Zorba adjacent to Che Figata which was fine but that filled up to capacity.
Our food took over an hour (two pasta dishes) and our server just said “I’m sorry. I’ll buy you another round”. I would not have bought another drink. I was driving.
Food was delicious but the delay should’ve been handled differently.

Had a date night this Saturday. First time customer. Res for around 6pm, it was quiet at that time, by 8-9pm the place was at it's 25-50% limit due to restrictions. Temp check at the front, masks optional at table. Our waiter was a very nice gentleman. We were planning on staying awhile, so he was distant but attentive. Had a german sweet wine that was marked up, but not badly. I've gotten used to drinking at home for retail. Skipped first course and into main. She had the Lasagna which was, pretty good, not great. I had the Short Rib ravioli, which was outstanding! I was almost licking the plate. Very good. Small portion sizes, which is good, helps the waistline, but the prices reflected a struggling pandemic business, so, understandable, plus the quality and craftsmanship which was there. Ambiance was nice. Booths that faced the open air kitchen. Wood burning stove for pizza, so there is a smell of autumn fire that I enjoy. Dessert was pretty good. Tiramisu was good, Gelato was better. The waiter even gave us some fresh sliced prosciutto which literally melted in our mouth. Overall, very impressed. Great atmosphere for a date night, food was crafted well, wait staff was professional and attentive. 7/10.

Excellent food as always. The stuffed grilled salmon on the Valentines Day menu was REALLY good.

I find it a lot of fun to explore their wine menu. Each visit I like to try something different and new. They have interesting choices.

I was not impressed with the menu selection or the portions of food served. It seemed pricey for what we got. It would have been nice to have bread served with Italian food, but there was none. It was what you would expect from a convenient restaurant in a hotel.

We were so happy to be able to go back to Che Figata. The service was great and the food was fantastic. I have the Pappardelle with bolognaise and it felt like I was back in Italy.

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.

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.
