We had a flight to catch and we wanted to eat Italian food before boarding. Searched around for a few places with vegetarian friendly menu and this was a great find. Capelini D'Angelo al Pomodoro was made to perfection. One of them was ordered with spicy sauce. We also had Eggplant Parmesan and Lenguine al Pesto and they were great... More

An inviting interior with a varied menu featuring quite a few veal dishes and an extensive wine list.

My companions really liked their dishes. For me it was so-so, which could have been my choice of their gnocchi in an insipid red sauce. Decent if not exciting menu with all the usual choices and on ly one special that night. Good wine list but only 2 beers. Prices are a bit much for this level of quality. Service... More

This was by far the best Italian Fare I have ever had. The service is alone is enough to bring me back again. Very delightful wait staff made us feel welcome and comfortable the entire time. The waiter went out of his way to find a wine we asked for, even though he thought the might be out. The food... More

I hosted a dinner with 20 people at Cafe Figaro and it could not have been better. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. Everyone's meal came out at around the same time, which is almost unheard of when you have such a large party. Everyone raved about their meals and we all left very happy. The waiters... More

Last night celebrated my the birthday of my wife at Figaro. She had her favorite salmon which was solid as usual and I had the Fruit de Mer which was outstanding. The mix of mussels, clams, prawns, white fish and crab legs was a perfect match for the broth it was served in. Glad we did not order a salad... More

A small group of family had a very nice dinner and dessert here on a Sunday evening. It's very unassuming from the outside, but everyone inside is welcoming and friendly. We had eggplant parmigiana, a tortellini with creamy prosciutto, and a creamy seafood fettuccine. Each item was unique and perfectly prepared. The portions are big enough for no one to... More

My Italian friend told me this was the best Italian restaurant in the area. So I went there for dinner and enjoyed everything. Parking is free on the local side streets. I ordered pasta and my wife ordered chicken. I was very pleased. Total food is a little expensive and if the portion was larger this would be a five... More

Although I have lived on the Peninsula for for over 50 years, I managed to miss this little family owned/operated gem. Only due to a TravelZoo offering did we find it. Well, the only regret is that it took so long to find out way here. A small little restaurant, charming, run by family with the care that only a... More
