NEVER TRUST A ROUND PIZZA!

Figs Pizza is most likely like no other pizza you’ve ever had. Don’t be surprised by the large freeform shape—its specifically part of what will go into your overall experience in enjoying this unique meal.

The crust will be so crisp and thin it will be close to brittle. That finely crisped quality is achieved by the special technique used in making the dough and a short cooking time at a very high temperature. The toppings are the finest freshest available and are, as often as possible local produce and other ingredients.

A distinctive quality of a Figs Pizza is that it will cool down quickly. If you take a pizza with you please follow the directions provided by the restaurant when heating it again at home.

Had a reservation but still waited 45 minutes for a table. Am 8 months pregnant and would have really appreciated if they had just said no reservations were available rather than giving me one and making me stand and wait that long.

Good food, friendly staff, except at the end of the meal it felt rushes, got a tab before we even asked, without giving a chance to order anything else after the meal.

Good pizza but hard to sit comfortably on high stools, extremely noisy music (hard to talk), and close to other diners.

We always love coming here when we remember it. Thrilled that it now accepts reservations. That will help us return more often. The food is good 9 out of 10 times but always the Fig and prosciutto Pizza. It is miserable waiting for someone to bring your check so you can leave, so just expect that wait.

Met a friend for dinner at this Beacon Hill restaurant. We had chicken sausage pizza. I ordered beet salad as well and friend had spinach soup. We enjoyed the good though we had hoped the chicken sausage would have more of a kick. The pizza crust was thin and flavorful. Service was attentive initially but became non-existent as restaurant became full. Noise became an issue as friend and I are soft-spoken and had issues hearing each other. We also waited a long time for bill. I did enjoy offerings but would choose to come earlier before rush. Tight quarters. Be prepared to be almost shoulder-to-shoulder to your neighbor.

The pizzas are all amazing especially prosciutto, mussels are my favorite to start. The area is very small and feels quite cramped and the noise level can get too loud easily and waiters or customers occasionally bump into you or your table on the way out. Great value for the high quality of the food. On busy nights the servers may get a little busy and do not pay as much attention to you as could be expected. Over all great consistent spot for casual dinner with close friends or a date.

It was impossible to hold a decent conversation due to the sheer noise in the restaurant. Additionally, the pizzas were very oily and made our party of 4 feel bloated the entire night, despite leaving half of the food uneaten...

Zona ottima. La pizza molto buona sebbene ci fosse poca scelta e dai gusti molto americani.
Locale con atmosfera piacevole, accogliente ed intimo tuttavia lo spazio è molto ristretto, concedendo poca privacy e obbligando ad urlare per sentirsi l’un l’altro. Abbiamo pagato in fretta per uscire altrettanto in fretta e riposarci un pò dal caos.

This was our first visit to Figs in Beacon Hill. The food was great with one exception. We ordered the chicken parm sliders and while mine was delicious, my husband’s chicken was completely uncooked in the middle. The waiter was apologetic and they brought out a new sandwich to replace it but I was kind of shocked when they still charged us for the sliders. Had my husband not noticed how raw his chicken was, he could have been very ill and it seemed inappropriate to charge us for that. Other than that, it was a pretty good dining experience.

Because of the marathon weekend it was very busy, there were a lot of people lining up and waiting for a table/takeout. They still handled everything great, the food (both pizza and pasta) was amazing and fast, would definitely recommend.

We loved Fig! The salad and chicken pizza were amazing. Very fresh and just delicious! The only thing I found wrong was the bathroom was in need of attention. The toilet seat paint was worn off and down to the wood. I can’t wait to go back again!

Loved it here so much we came back twice in one week. If I lived in Boston it would be a regular stop. Had the calamari and the Oliver pizza. Wish I didn’t have a flight the next morning so I could have kept the leftovers.

Wonderful selection of pizza - they're large so best shared. If you can't decide, you can split the pizza with two different types. Nice wine selections - both by bottle and glass. Can be quite noisy if there is a large party (6+).

We ate at Figs twice during our stay in Boston. The first time was focused on pizza and our choices of calamari and hot peppers for one and prosciutto, arugula and gorgonzola for the second were amazing. The second visit was for the pasta and both our dishes were mediocre at best. While the pasta was properly cooked, the saucing for each - one a bolognese and the other a carbonara - was weak and lacked balanced flavor. Loud, but hopping atmosphere and very nice staff. Eating at the bar is a little less noisy and a nice set-up.

The challenge for this Figs location is the noise level. It makes it hard to have conversation.
The pizza is of course very good. But I had their eggplant parm - something I try almost every time it’s in a restaurant menu. I won’t be ordering it at Figs in the future. It was essentially a couple slices of eggplant over a lot of pasta. Not want I was expecting.
Service was very good, however.

Their pizza is amazing! Try the fig & prosciutto (I'm vegetarian and get it without the prosciutto, and it's still delicious).
