Figo Pasta Introduces Gluten-Free Meatball

Figo is one of my favorite casual Atlanta spots and I think they have one of the best GF pastas around!  Their gluten-free fusili pasta can be mixed with any of their sauces for a delicious gluten-free meal.

Last week, Figo added a new item to their gluten-free menu: the gluten-free meatball!  Made with rice flour and rice, instead of bread, Figo’s Gluten-Free Maria Meatball also includes a yummy mix of ground beef sirloin, carrots, onions, celery, potatoes, parmesan cheese and an herb & spice blend.

If you don’t feel like pasta, think about trying one or two of their meatballs with a salad to add protein to your meal.

The new GF Maria meatball will be offered at all seven of Figo’s locations so check their website for the restaurant closest to you.  You might have already gotten a sneak peak of the meatball at the Atlanta Gluten-Free Vendor Fair a few weeks back.

    Question – How does Figo score in terms of cross contamination? My biggest worry is that they would cook the pasta in the same water or use the same utensils or strainers, I have a five year old celiac who adores pasta!

    Yum, that is great to know. Does that mean, they still offer regular meatballs too, and we just have to be sure to specify which one?

    Kimberly – They do not use the same water for the gluten-free pasta. I have gotten pasta there more times than I can count and I am very sensitive and have always had a great experience. I hope that helps =)

    Kimberly, we make every effort to avoid cross-contamination in our kitchens. Our staff is properly trained and we take the needs of our guests seriously — particularly when it come to their health and safety.

    Anne, we still offer our gourmet signature meatballs. The menu changes on a regular basis so check our website for the current lineup.

    Finally, I wanted to let you all know we are hosting a gluten free menu tasting at Osteria del FIGO’s Meatballs Bar on December 21, 2011 from 6:30 – 8:00. Your meal is free if you’re one of the first 40 guests to register for the event. Go to for more information. Ciao!
