In this informal, traditional Italian restaurant, not only is the pasta authentic, but the chef and waitstaff converse in Italian.
Figaro restaurant is a gorgeously traditional Italian bistro in Kingston. "Another one?" I hear you sigh. Yes, but apparently there are enough customers to go around because this bistro has been around for six years and is still going strong.

Had dinner with my wife and a few friends last night, we hadn't eaten together at Figaro together for a while. But we will definitely be returning. The food was great I had the lamb shanks as usual—the Chef didn't disappoint. The quality, service and value for money here is second to none. It was a great night once again Figaro. Keep up the great work.
Bad! - 15/05/2013
After reading mixed reviews we thought we would give Figaro a try. We were severely disappointed and wished we had given it a miss. The service was appalling, with rude staff who have no idea what is on their own limited menu. The food was horrible, the pizzas had soggy bases with oily cheese. My partners pasta tasted like a microwave pasta meal. The meals are over priced for the poor quality. We decided to go elsewhere for desert. The place is small, dark and dingy. Not romantic at all. To top it off we were over charged an extra bottle of wine! Never again, don't waste your time and money as there are plenty of great places in Kingston!

I've been coming to Figaro in Kingston for some time and have noticed a nice change to an already knock-out cast. I've always enjoyed the food and dining experience here - that's why I keep returning, but noticed that the manager of 10 years is now back from taking time away to have kids. She brings a warmth and expertise that enhance the place just that bit more.I recommend the pizzas to anyone who has yearnings for great pizza, but my favourite is the steak with mushroom sauce. Out of this world!

I love coming to Figaro - it makes the day better having suffered fools at work. I was here recently for a special occasion and was so happy with how it all turned out. We had a lovely evening of being treated to attentive, caring staff who guided us through the menu. We choose some meals that sounded indulgent and we weren’t disappointed. My veal pie was fantastic and the provincial setting is very charming.
