I hosted a dinner with 20 people at Cafe Figaro and it could not have been better. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. Everyone's meal came out at around the same time, which is almost unheard of when you have such a large party. Everyone raved about their meals and we all left very happy. The waiters... More

Last night celebrated my the birthday of my wife at Figaro. She had her favorite salmon which was solid as usual and I had the Fruit de Mer which was outstanding. The mix of mussels, clams, prawns, white fish and crab legs was a perfect match for the broth it was served in. Glad we did not order a salad... More

A small group of family had a very nice dinner and dessert here on a Sunday evening. It's very unassuming from the outside, but everyone inside is welcoming and friendly. We had eggplant parmigiana, a tortellini with creamy prosciutto, and a creamy seafood fettuccine. Each item was unique and perfectly prepared. The portions are big enough for no one to... More

My Italian friend told me this was the best Italian restaurant in the area. So I went there for dinner and enjoyed everything. Parking is free on the local side streets. I ordered pasta and my wife ordered chicken. I was very pleased. Total food is a little expensive and if the portion was larger this would be a five... More

Although I have lived on the Peninsula for for over 50 years, I managed to miss this little family owned/operated gem. Only due to a TravelZoo offering did we find it. Well, the only regret is that it took so long to find out way here. A small little restaurant, charming, run by family with the care that only a... More

Lovely restaurant which we discovered after our "prime" destination was closed. Family feel...food authentic....nothing was "pre-made"....service(Erkan) was outstanding... If you think Olive Garden is Italian food, then this is not your place. Cozy,tight...very much the feel of a neighborhood Italian restaurant.

First, this place is adorable - really just a hole in the wall, but elegant. Prices were very reasonable. I gave Erkan, our waiter, a choice of three things I was looking at and asked his opinion. He said he would surprise me and bring me one of them because it was his favorite. It wound up being the Pollo... More

This restaurant hits the difficult sweet spot of great food and wine, good service, and reasonable pricing. Go have a meal that you won't regret.

The staff is running ragged and gave us the wrong order. But...once we got our food...that was quickly forgiven. Excellent, fresh, food. Bread and oil was out of this world. Ill be back... but maybe when they are not so busy...
