Ivy Walk in Vinings | 1675 Cumberland Pkwy | Ivy Walk Unit #415 | Smyrna, GA 30080
We reviewed this place back in June, based on multiple visits. So, this is not a review. But, our parents didn't take pictures before and we went there for dinner again tonight. We got the BBQ Chicken Pizza. It was AWESOME!

Paul: We just went to our school’s open house and met our new teachers. To celebrate, because we were happy that we got great teachers, we decided to eat out. We went to to Figo’s, which Sam and I had not been to before - but mom and dad had.
For our appetizer, we got the Figo Bruschetta. It was very flavorful. The tomatoes were super fresh and their were a lot of them. It was loaded!
For my meal, I had the Lasagna di Figo - adult size. There were two sizes: kids and adults. It was very good. The tomato sauce was great. The lasagna was perfectly cooked. I had leftovers.
Mom and I had the Peanut Butter Pie for dessert. It had a crust made from Oreos, peanut butter filling and chocolate “ganache”. It also had raspberry sauce all over the plate. It was very good. It wasn't that big....but that was good because we were stuffed to the rafters! (See the picture of my brother all tired and full.)
You order at the counter and you get a huge salt and pepper shaker with salt and pepper in it - but it’s also decorated so they know where to bring your food. The service was very good. The food came quick.
I recommend Figo Pasta. The only thing is that it’s small and they don’t have the most comfortable chairs and tables. The decor was not too special.
Sam: I got the Fusilli Pasta with Cheese Sauce. I really liked the cheese sauce. For desert, I go the Tiramisu. I liked that, too!

Paul: Our waitress was very nice. But, the service was slow, even though it was not crowded. I don’t think it was her fault, though. We could see into the kitchen and it looked like the cooks were playing around.
The decor is really colorful. It is decorated to make you feel like you are outside. It was a little dirty, though.
We did not have the best time with the food. For the appetizer, we got chips, salsa, and queso. The chips were HUMONGOUS! They made the chips fresh and you could see them making the chips behind the bar. The queso was kind of spicy. It was OK. The salsa was great! And the chips were very tasty.
I ordered the fish tacos (grilled, not fried). They came with two sides. I got the mashed potatoes and black beans. For some reason, the mashed potatoes were really spicy. I did not even go near trying the beans because they didn’t look so good. The fish tacos were probably 50/50. They were the best part of the meal, but...I mean....for some reason they tasted a little like grass. Although, the actual fish in the tacos was good.
I think they probably could use some remodeling and cleaning. And maybe they could have a talk with the staff (especially the cooks) to see if anything they could change.
Overall, there are better Mexican places to eat in the area, like Los Bravos on South Cobb Drive in Smyrna. And if you want just any kind of food in the area, there is a Shane’s Rib Shack right down the road from this place (right next to a Moe’s).
Sam: We almost sat near the TVs, but we didn’t. I really liked the rice. It looked like it had much spice, but it did not. I really liked the Quesadilla, too. The cooks were too slow and most of the people were taking a break and that’s why it was so slow. The servers were trying to hurry up, but the cooks were not. (I saw inside the kitchen, you know.)
