Interesting and varied menu. Not at at typical Italian food. Some very different combinations of ingredients that worked for me.

Grilled octopus appetizer was particularly good. Very tender, and a different sauce than the balsamic you'd usually see.

We went to Che Figata to celebrate my son going back to school for his senior year. Sat at the counter and the food and service (Jeff) were both excellent. Also, enjoyed talking with Phil and Mark. This is a unique restaurant that I would highly recommend. Going back next week with a larger group....that says it all.

First impressions mean a lot to the meal. Ours was not good. When asked what we’d like to drink, our wives ordered French Martinis and I ordered a Cab Sav... the only one on the menu. I was promptly told they were out of Cab since the day prior. It being a Saturday night, I would figure they’d have at least one. I ordered a different blend and moved on. The waitress, who was very nice, then returned and told us they were out of Chambord, too. This made them 0-3 on the drink orders. Prosecco they had.
The rest of the meal was ok if not non-descript. The food was pretty good, the service was slow, and the cost was pretty expensive. Not going here again anytime soon.

Food was creative and delicious. Server was inattentive and obnoxious ( sorry, but women old enough to be his mothers should not be referred to as "girls"). He didn't bother to stop at our table after we received our food, so we had to flag him down to inform him one of us received the wrong food and that we needed refills of water. He then blamed his coworkers for the errors. Poor performance.

Really enjoyed our first visit to Che Figata! I recommend reserving/requesting counter seating if you are a foodie. Ask to speak with Mark or David if you want extra care. Loved the fresh Regiano Parmesano shaved straight from the block!

Wonderful place, large menu, great selections and the food was really enjoyable. Well prepared and well served. Had to wait a while for desert and check, but it was probably our fault since we moved from where we were originally seated to a booth that appeared not to be one assigned to our original waiter, even though he took care of us.

We'll be back. A couple small negatives: we asked for more merinara sauce for one of our dishes, $3 charge. And there was another $6 charge for I'm not sure what.

I am in love with this restaurant! I am very particular about Italian restaurants but Che Figata knows how to do it right. The food has excellent quality and the ambiance is great. Some of their staff members need better training but it didn't hinder my overall experience.

Juan, our server was outstanding and full of knowledge! He gave us a tour of the menu and gave us full descriptions. It defiantly helped with ordering some of the items we did. My fiance and I will defiantly be back to bring both our family's here again.

Appetizers, pizza with pepperoni and meatball with toast were excellent. I loved the burrata. Vegetable soup was OK. College age son did not like it, but my wife did like it. We would not order it again.

Rigatoni and vegetable pasta weee outstanding. Tiramisu was also very good and right sized shareable portions.

I am reluctant to post my experience here. Why? Because this relatively brand new hidden spot is about to become impossible to get into. The ambience and decor is fresh and inviting with a nice view into the kitchen. The service is on par with some of the 5 star restaurants I have been fortunate enough to dine in. Never a want or a moment without our server being there. And then the food. We had 5 people in my party. It takes you less time to do your taxes. Was the menu long...no... but the choices! Everything looked amazing on the page and even better when served. This is real Italian fare. This is Italian on a whole new level with great prices and value to boot. Highly recommended.

Everything was outstanding. Food (tenderloin... So tender) and drinks (olive oil martini) were beyond excellent and portioned quite well. Tenderloin was exceptional.. did I mention that? Dessert was unique... Great blend of flavors for every dish.

The suppli were made perfectly. The octopus was also prepared very well with just a bit of heat from the gardineria. A nice surprise came from the prosciutto and fig pizza. It had a wonderfully balanced flavor of sweet and salty.

Food was AMAZING!!! I had the Che Figata flatbread to start which was incredible. The pasta is all made in house and it’s so delicious. I had the Meagre fish for the entree. It was light and so favorable. The mini tiramisu was also great. What a great meal.

Food is decent. Service should be better. Once seated, waited 10 minutes before anyone came by our table. A number of waitstaff walked by and nothing...not even water. Came close to walking out but wanted to try the food. Service improved when they finally took our order. Tonight may have been an anomaly so I’d say it’s worth a try.

Overpriced bad food. Sat there for ten minutes before anyone came over and then took 15 minutes to get drinks after ordering. Everything came with oil soaked bad bread. There were two tomatoes on my “salad”. Rest was bread and cheese. Went home craving vegetables. Glasses smelled like dirty dishwasher. Waitress seemed clueless. Won’t be back.

Waiter was annoying and not very attentive. Took forever for drinks to arrive and had to ask 3x for butter for the table and then when it finally came we were given 1 small piece not enough for 1 person let alone 4. Lasanga was good as was a fish dish. The meatball served with the rigatoni was too hard, could hardly cut through it with a fork. Did not try any desserts.

Our first time there. Service was good and several employees came buy and asked how everything was and if we needed anything else. All meals were good, Lasagne, Osso Bucco, and Shrimp and Pasta. We had the a fig, cheese, prosciutto, and honey appetizer; very sweet but good. A little pricey, $170 for three including a bottle of wine.
