great pizzas

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 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

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

We walked up to Figs for Saturday night dinner. We were lucky that when we able to get a table within 5 minutes of arriving. It is a very small venue! However, the atmosphere is very inviting. Our Server was slow to wait on us. We had the warm Bacon spinach salad. It was ok. We ordered half fig and... More

I came here twice on a recent trip to Boston. On my first visit I had pasta and it was really good. We saw the pizzas there and decided to come back to try them. I am glad that we did! They have unique topping options and they all seem to be delicious. I recommend getting half of the pizza... More

Enjoyed lovely pizza while site-seeing on the Freedom Trail. Nice local ambiance, and great menu. Would love to come back with a bigger group to share pizza and enjoy some wine. They provided a kid's menu for my son which was great. Was a tiny bit put off by the sticky tables - I remember having to clean similar tables... More

Casual place, easy service. The pizzas are excellent and the portions are large. And there is a large room in the back, which may not be obvious if the front is crowded.

Their pizzas are delicious and huge - one is enough for two people. The service was great. No complaints.

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
