“Good good but crowded and cramped”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We had a bacon and spinach salad which was so drenched in Parmesan cheese that wax all one could taste. The fig pizza was excellent as was a wild mushroom pasta. It is crowded and cramped, noisy, old looking and not spotless. Waitstaff were efficient but not friendly. Price was reasonable for Boston .

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

It's hard for a Connecticut girl who grew up on New Haven pizza to love pizza anywhere else, but Figs does a great job. Crunchy thin crust pizza with endless toppings options (this time we had the spicy chicken sausage pizza). We love to make this our Sunday "breakfast" stop before we leave the Boston area for home. Great fresh salads and great pizza. Definitely worth the tiny space and crowded tables.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Food was very good but the place is dirty, cold and very crowded. I just don't understand when a restaurant is dirty. The bathroom was dirty, the floors were dirty so it makes me suspect the kitchen as well. The food is good and the staff is friendly but the tables are so close you cannot get seated without hitting the person next to you.

“crunchy yummy pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

well it's not an easy task to conquer an Italian trust over pizza...but Figs actually succeed
the pizza is super tasty and the dough very crunchy , well balanced and not overstuffed
the place itself is friendly and with a relaxed atmosphere

“Great pizza and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Thin crusted pizzas with delicious toppings, friendly service and great atmosphere make this small restaurant probably the best one on Charles street.
