Figo Cantina have a very special feast planned…  a very special Festa Della Mamma lunch planned? You read that right. Figo Cantina is opening up their groovy Italian hub to all the Mammas and families spoiling their Mammas for a very first lunch time debut.
But the Italian masterminds aren’t stopping there, because this rare occasion calls for Figo-Go-Go. That’s right guys and girls, the food at Figo will be flowing and flowing until you say so! Think unlimited truffle infused dishes, copious mouthfuls of soft Italian cheese, beautifully cured luxe meats and endless metres of Roman inspired pizzas.
And if you’re still yet to be sent into a food coma, why not soothe your sweet tooth with Figo’s famous gelato or Nutella Calzone – warmed Nutella and mascarpone oozing out of a sugar dusted pizza base. Delizioso. 
But it only gets more unbelievable – before you start thinking this is a set menu, think again. Figo’s going unlimited across their entire food menu, So think yum cha, but better, because it’s Italian yum cha.
And for all you can eat at just $40 per adult and $20 per child – you can see why bookings are essential. Get in quick!
