Osteria del Figo has several outposts around Atlanta; this is the location in the industrial area west of Georgia Tech. I visited their with my colleague Saibal Mukhopadhyay. We both felt an obligation to go for the ravioli today. In some ways, I would like to be able to look down my nose at this place as yet another yuppie outpost. But I have to admit that these people know their ravioli.
I had the five cheese ravioli with pesto. The pasta itself was perfectly done. The pesto was also outstanding with a good balance between the pine nuts and basil.
Saibal's ravioli came with a cream-based sauce with shrimp. He reports that the sauce was very well executed.
