This location is the original and still the best. They've got great salads and mix and match pastas - pick your pasta and sauce and you're off. My favorite is gemelli with pecorino and lemon. In the beginning they made their pasta fresh and it was to die for. As they've grown I believe they've gotten away from this but I can barely notice (though others might disagree). The atmostphere is great. All dinners come with bread and olive oil. They only have one beer on draft but its fittingly Italian and they've got a few other bottled selections to choose from. The house wine hits the spot too. Lastly, the prices, while not cheap are reasonable for the quality you get. I make an effort to get to a FIGO at least once a month and their expansion to new locations make this much easier. I do lament the closing of their VaHi location. That was the closest and my favorite.

I took my boyfriend of 3.5 years to Figo on our first date and this has continuously been one of our favorite date spots (specifically the original Collier Rd. location). The intimate ambiance is a perfect date-night spot.
While I am adventurous when it comes to food, I get the same thing everytime I go because it has become one of my favorite comfort foods: the six cheese ravioli with the funghi (mushroom) cream sauce. It is AMAZING. I have been enjoying the food at Figo for over 6 years and have been here 30 to 40 times and the pasta and sauce are consistently perfect.
My boyfriend usually orders one of the specials listed on a chalkboard when you walk in the door. Everything I have tasted has been fabulous. We usually always start with the caprese salad or prosciutto & melon appetizers because they are some of our favorites. The bread is delicious, their olive oil for dipping is superb, the wine is delicious and I can't say enough about the wonderful service.
As soon as we walk in the door, we know we will be taken care of. The service has always been as equally as great as the food.
I really can't say enough about Figo. It is one of our favorite restaurants in Atlanta.

Mmmmm, I love this joint! The one on Collier Road is the same as the one on Howell Mill, but a lot smaller and less crowded....
The food is very tasty and well priced. It's fresh, and usually doesn't need any extras (salt, pepper, ect).
I like to go around 1 or 2, when it isn't busy and I can usually snag a table with no wait. (maybe I should'nt have said that...now all YOU will be there at that time! ^_^)
The staff is super personable and friendly.
If you're looking for yummy, inexpensive Itallian food with a easy-going approach-Figo fits perfectly.

Listen up! I've been a chef for about thirteen years now, and I know what good food and what good service look like. Ever since the first time I dined at the Figo on Collier road, I was blown away by how dedicated the staff is, how scrumptious the food is, and how consistent the Figo Pasta's are, no matter what location you choose to dine with. They do a really great job of making sure you feel welcome in their home, and always have smiles and warmth awaiting you. Once when I was having dinner with my husband at Figo on Collier, the owner of Figo, Sandro, came right up to our table and asked us how we were doing and if he could do anything more for us. I have to tell you, that really blew me away! This is how restaurant service should be, and for the price, it may be my new favorite place to enjoy hot, inexpensive, flavorful food. My favorite location is Collier road. Completely flawless. Well done Figo!
I would hesitate to recommend this restaurant. I ordered the ""last"" salmon salad, only to find that the salmon was terribly overcooked, tough, and dry. I sent that meal back, and ordered the wild mushroom ravioli. The ravioli was UNDERcooked, tough, chewy, and the meat sauce just didn't have enough flavor. It left your taste buds wanting something more that just wasn't there.

Quite pleased with the menu choices - have been twice in the past month after hearing it recommended at work. They have a delicious spinach salad and inexpensive wine - not to mention the endless combinations of pasta and sauces. Dinner for two with wine cost less than $35 both times - definitely will go back!

I have been to Figo more than three times, and it's always good for a quick lunch or dinner that's cheap but also good quality. Service has always been nice. Nice selections of pastas and sauces. However, not too many vegan options, but good selection of vegetarian options. The bread is also vegan so that nice. The bread isn't great but it's still good. Good for a casual outing.
