My husband and I stayed at Tudor Warf in Charlestown and really enjoyed eating at Figs because it was more of a neighborhood place than a trendy North End "stand-in-line-forever-to-get-in place". We didn't have a reservation and were seated on a Friday night very quickly. The food was excellent! We both had pasta specials, not pizza. They offer a decent... More

We were staying in Charlestown for our holiday and popped in for lunch. We had one pizza between two of us and was offered the option to have a "half and half" in the end we decided against it but it was nice to have the option. One pizza was more than enough for us and we even ended up... More

We were visiting friends that live in Charlestown and they recommended Figs, a Todd English restaurant. We walked to the restaurant which is in a nice area of Charlestown (it all looked nice actually). Although the restaurant was crowded, we were seated right away which was nice as they only take reservations for parties of 6 or more and we... More

They have yummy thin crust pizzas in a wood-fired oven. The pizzas are not small, around the size of a sheet pan which contains 8 large rectangular slices. They have unique combinations such as our favorite: fig and prosciutto. We also had their spicy shrimp. Yummy but really spicy, not great with kids. Service has always been good, We went... More

We had lunch here recently. There was plenty to choose from. Chicken Caesar salad had a huge piece of chicken on it and was tasty. The pizzas in the table next to ours looked huge. After being in the sunshine it seems dark inside and the tables are very close together-typically Italian! Watch it, though, when paying our bill, we... More

Excellent thin crust pizza at fair prices in a pretty part of Charlestown. Frequented by the locals. Besides pizza they do serve past, but have never ordered any. Pizzas are less about globs of cheese and tomato sauce; and more sparely dressed with things like mozzarella and arugula and sliced tomato; or prosciutto and provolone; or mushroom, sweet onion and...

I have lived in Charlestown for my entire life, and I have come to expect nothing less than excellent service, food, and quality. I have a milk allergy, and they have always catered to my needs. As you can guess, it is hard to find a pizza that tastes good without cheese, but figs pulls it off easily. If you... More

This restaurant has fallen apart. I live in the neighborhood and I used to really enjoy going here. The food quality is now below standard and the service is horrible. There are way too many other amazing Italian restaurants in the area to waste your money here. Go to Ducali across the bridge for pizza or anywhere in the north... More

We stumbled on fig at the recommendation of a local. What a great find at the end of a long freedom trail walk! Fig is setup for smaller tables and the dining area is dominated by a wood fired oven. We ordered an excellent calamari / arugula pizza, larger than expected, which could easily feed four. Crust is thin and... More

The spawn of legendary chef Todd English, Figs specializes in artisanal flatbread pizzas with unexpected ingredients (like figs and prosciutto!!), baked in a wood burning stove. What more is there to say? Yes, there will be a wait.
