Very mixed reviews. We all have different tastes/ideas//views…but I'm going to be as honest as I can.
La Figa is the sister restaurant to Il Bordello. They like to stick to their sittings… 07.30 – 9.30pm…and then the late shift. …but it's not LAW . You do have to book though . .It's a busy vibrant place …for me that isn't a bad thing. .It's not a tinkling of cutlery or quiet conversation type place, .Contemporary design to the place and as you enter you see this long bar that caters for the pre dinner drinks..(some prefer to actually eat at the bar..) I think table cloths would be nice…but that's a me thing. .They are Italian to the core…warm smile …very busy aura about the place ..rushing here…rushing there. They like to sit you , serve you and then move on. But it's all done very politely and with good heart… thats the way they are. Quite an extensive menu with a specials one attached. They serve all the pasta dishes you can shake a stick at. …cooked anyway you want it…and yes…they are LARGE portions. If you have 3 teenage sons then this is the place to go haha ! We have always been greeted warmly and with a smile. The one time the table wasn't ready..it wasn't an issue… a free to drink always helps a 20 min delay .. If I have any pasta dish I always ask for a 1/2 portion..I literally cant eat the protions they serve. Hey …big portions you can leave…small ones you can't change. So when you sit and see the food that is served at the table next to you… ask for the size you want. …simples ! Last visit I asked for a child portion of arrabiatta and then had the claves lives for main …bof of which were cooked freshly and served piping hot. My partner had grilled fished with lemon and garlic sauce ..again not bad at all. If something isn't right…they'll change it for you.. Waiter service is fine…A quick raise of a hand is soon approached. The manager is constantly walking and observing. I personally don't mind the place. No I wouldnt go there every week…but once in a while,,,or with people who have big appetites it's a good deal. Yes it is very good value for money. . yes it is worth a visit…yes I will go back …
