Sometimes, going out to a restaurant isn't a luxury -- it's a way of preserving one's sanity. Great comfort comes from being coddled by a caring server, having dinner brought out to you hot and ready to eat, and then enjoying the mandatory dessert. Every Sunday through Thursday, Figlio offers that experience between the hours of 4 and 6 p.m. That's when $11.95 buys a hell of a meal deal. The early-bird special includes a Caesar salad; lots of this restaurant's signature warm, yeasty breadsticks; one of 10 pasta dinners -- such as a slab of lasagna or fettuccine Alfredo with chicken; and, as a soothing finale, a scoop of creamy gelato. Even the most stressful workdays can seem a distant memory with a full stomach and the opportunity to choose honey-cinnamon, chocolate-amaretto or spumoni gelato. Almost as good as the bargain meal are the attentive service and the view of Mill Creek Park.
