Enjoyable evening

We had a pleasant evening here. The food was good. I had the gnocchi and my wife had chicken parmigiana. I didn't order the gnocchi but that was ok. I ate it anyway. Gave me the wrong drink too. It wasn't too busy, so you would think they could have got the order correct. We had a starter of... read more

We love Figs!!!!! We live in Charlestown and we are regulars here. We love the pizza. The ingredients are fresh and the staff is nice (Anderson is the best)! The restaurant also has a cool vibe inside. We would highly recommend! Lots of pizza and resonably priced.

Great food (we had the crispy shrimp pizza and the meatball appetizer). Very fun and quaint. Great service. Small and cozy

There are two Fig's restaurants in the Boston Area, and I generally frequent the establishment on Charles St. in Beacon Hill. LOVE the place and have never been disappointed in either the service or the food. However, on a mindless, meandering bike ride on July 2nd, we found ourselves in Charlestown, across the river from Boston, and home to Fig's... More

We went to 4 restaurants in Charlestown (see my other reviews) and this was the least satisfactory. Obviously it majors on pizzas so there really was no excuse for burnt crusts, though the fillings were good. The member of staff who served our table whilst not being rude was offhand. I would not recommend this restaurant based on our experience.

We have eaten at Figs over 20 times. It has a simple menu of Pizza and a few other dishes, such as chicken parmesan, maybe a couple of pasta dishes. Service is always spotty, with only 2 or 3 servers and about 20 tables, it is often not clear who is your server. Getting a drink refill is a challenge.... More

We were in Boston for a couple of days and were wandering through Beacon Hill around lunchtime. We decided to find a place to eat which can be challenging with two teenage boys.... one of which has a pretty severe nut allergy. We walked by Figs and there was a couple eating an incredibly interesting looking pizza stacked with Calamari... More

This is the site of the original Olives and it is still owned by Todd English. Figs serves gourmet pizza and a few other Italian options. A great neighborhood restaurant and on the Freedom Trail.

We've been the seven of us and we've had so much food and for$103. The food was great, one of their pizzas can easily be shared between two people. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We drive from Watertown to Charlestown (~10 miles/25 minutes) once every month or two. Figs' pizzas are thin, yummy, and creative. They are free-form and are generally served spilling over the pan. A work of art, really. This past Saturday we deviated from our usual: Isabelle's (the founding chef, Todd English's daughter): ham, provolone, asparagus, onions on one half and... More
