I would not recommend Fabbrica to any diners. First, we had a reservation and even showed up 10 minutes early, yet we were left ignored by each server for 20 minutes. Each server was acting frantic as if it was first day on the job for all of them even though the restaurant was not even close to capacity. When we finally were seated, we were again ignored, not even offered drinks, for close to 15 minutes. The food was mediocre at best. It was my friend's birthday, and at the end they asked me (aside) if he would appreciate a piece of cake. I said no because we had plans after, but they insisted it would be quick. Then they attempted to charge almost $10 extra for the small piece of cake that usually comes free for someone's birthday celebration?! This place is a joke.

Somewhat limited pre-fixe menu for Valentine’s Day. Also servers seemed to be spread thin. Also forgot mascarpone sauce on my steak which I felt was a little spicy overpriced.

Food was okay. We went at 7:15 on a Saturday and there were a lot of children there which was weird (considering huge bar) and not the most pleasant. The table next to us had kids who kept jumping around and there was an infant crying at another table. Not sure if it's like that regularly but I wouldn't come here for a romantic dinner.

Sadly the waitress was rushed off her feet so whilst the wine came instantly, the soft drinks were 10 minutes later.

Food was good - fabulous shrimp - and good value.

Not the best and certainly not the worst. I've had better food in many other places in Williamsburg. In a pinch, Fabrica works for dining.

First time visit to Fabbrica, we enjoyed the ambiance and overall vibe of this place. Food and wine good too. The choice of house wine was poor even though we have low expectations from "house wine" anywhere.

I don't know what happened to this place. The pasta and pizza has gone from truly great to airport quality within the span of a year. Bizarre.

Ordered pizza.. they didn’t put the anchovies on my friends pizza. Also it seemed to take inordinately long considering they said it’s the fastest thing that would come, when we said were in a hurry. Had to take it away because we didn’t have enough time to sit down and eat it at leisure.

We made a reservation for 6 guests, but ended up being a party of 8 on a Saturday night. The manager and staff went above and beyond. The food was delicious, menu is diverse and there are some light summer meals to choose from. Wine selection is impressive. Servers were very attentive and friendly. Live music makes it feel funky and fresh, ambiance is awesome! I'll be definitely coming back for more friends' get together over a glass of quality wine.

Almost empty for brunch on a Sunday. Nice decor, spacious so good for groups, but the food was not very good at all. Calamari was awful, omelette was tasteless. Would not recommend until they get a new chef.

The brunch was overall pretty good, with no crazy waits like most other places in the neighborhood. I would definitely recommend this more as a nighttime spot to enjoy the ambiance and live music. The hospitality overall was very lovely - the service was fanatic.

Gave this restaurant a second try even though disappointed with the first time which was Christmas Day. It is difficult to find a venue open on that day. We were terribly disappointed but chalked it up to a holiday. We live down the block so we decided to try again . All I can say overpriced bad food with such small portions that we left hungry. Terrible terrible so dont waste your time with food. The bar area is nice so perhaps for a drink it might be worth your while.

They should have holiday brunch instead of full highly priced lunch money on holiday days off.

Other than that it was delicious.

We tried Fabbrica on a whim and it was delicious! Great menu options if you like casual delicious Italian food. I had the rice ball and meat ball appetizers, both were delicious. They have a digital menu that allows you to see photos of the food before you order, which was really cool! Would recommend for a casual Italian bite out in Williamsburg.

Old fashioned decor. Eclectic menu and venue. Loved the food. Definitely will go back. Affordable prices. Dishes not too huge per person, except for the pizzas.

Cute cocktail: The Devil of North 6th St. Delicious too! Fruity with a kick. :-D

We went for lunch on a Saturday. It was not busy yet our server was wonderfully attentive but not overly so. She was very helpful and basically catered to us.
The space was comfortable and inviting - not what I expected from a 'factory'. The food was fabulous - from the arancini appetizers to the main dishes of Bucatini Alla Carbonara and Pappardelle Alla Bolognese. The entres were suitable sauced and cooked perfectly. We shared some house wine and it was also very good.
