I went already to Fabbrica a few times, since a live a few blocks away, and always had a nice experience, great food, nice decor, casual but attentive service. The other night it was my birthday and i decided to book at Fabbrica. My girlfriend and I had the best time ever. When the manager learnt about my special day he made sure that i couldnt forget it. He started sending us two flutes of Prosecco. Then we had a special appetizer crafted by the chef just for us: a kale and caponata profiterole with zucchini crema, it looked like a sculpture and tasted divine. The house made pasta, the rib eye and the fish were just delicious. Overall one of the best dinner of my life, to celebrate an important day. Thanks Fabbrica, we will be back soon!!

Came to Fabbrica for a new years day dinner. Was looking for some nice grub and a quick glass of wine to help rebound from NYE
festivities.
Love their bread basket, assorted rolls, mini baguette, rye etc.
Excellent Lasagna that fit my mood and the weather and a good glass of wine that the server picked for me.
We shared an excellent mozzarella burrata with shaved truffles, i guess it';s truffle season.
Server was on point and very nice. Was a bit relaxed in the dining room since it wasn't super crowded but it was just what I was in the mood for.

Food was good, but the blue point oysters were served frozen and were a little fishy. This wouldn't have mattered but the short menu was on the pricey side, so there was a greater expectation. The Branzino was very good. Wish there was more vegetable offerings, but perhaps the holiday menu limited things.

The staff was very friendly and the drinks were very good. Loved the decor.

Our particular server was terrific, but the place was a train wreck. They ran out of everything and we waited way too long for food and drink orders.

The food was burnt and under-seasoned. They forgot a $99 bottle of amarone entirely. To be fair, it was Xmas and they were flooded with babies and parties. The whole staff ran around with zero composure, food runners barely knew where things were going, at least we didn't wait too long for our awful food to arrive. Our server had to come back to say they were out of something we ordered, ok, this happens. The bottom line: there are too many restaurants out there for me to want to revisit a place where the food was shameful and the service haphazard. I still tipped well in cash, because I'm industry and it's Christmas. But this place has been open a year, and they probably did themselves a disservice by even being open in the first place.

Went out as 2 couples for early dinner 7pm and the place was full but not crazy. There were all types of people which was interesting. Couples, groups and families with kids. The menu and service were terrific. The fresh pastas are a fantastic choice. They are fresh , light and delicious. Appetizers were great as well. We had fried Artichokes which were so crispy the just evaporate on your tongue. Friends ordered the cheese plate and were happy with their choices as well. Very good would absolutely return.

Went for dinner with a small group. Food was good with a nice mix of comfort and innovation.
Server was super cool and described the specials well. They run a wine of the day, I had a dolcetto that was excellent.
everyone was nice and attentive. Must have gotten 5 thank you & have a good night on the way out.

This was the second time I have come to Fabbrica. I came back because I wanted to pick a place I knew I would like for my Birthday and I was impressed with the service and the food on the first visit, even though our waiter switched shifts with another waiter half way into our meal (which was strange for a dinner reservation at 7pm). The second visit however was a bit disappointing. Again, our waiter switched shifts with another waiter during prime dinner hours. The second waiter was extremely slow and forgetful. It took 45 minutes and 3 times of asking to receive the bill and I had to walk up to the service station to get them to run the card. If Fabbrica could only figure out there staff situation, the restaurant could be really great!

Great space and reasonable wine list. Our only complaint was that when we ordered one on the specials, the waiter told is that the chef was not ready. That was weird!. Fortunately, my date enjoyed her substitute selection. Federico, our very attentive and well versed waiter made the evening otherwise perfect.

I enjoyed the food but the pasta portions were very small. It seems you have to go for a pasta dish first, then move on to meat or fish. Very Italian indeed, but our waiter never advised us of this. The bolognese was great but it left me wanting seconds, even thirds!

I love the decor, the huge mural depicting the industrial past of the 'hood and mostly I love the food here. Yesterday for dinner I had Linguine al limone e pistacchio, absolutely amazing and refreshing. The perfect summer dish. My husband had the homemade Fettuccine al Ragu Bolognese made with three different meats, veal, beef and pork, and he loved it. The cuisine is modern Italian which I understand means new combinations of classic ingredients. We also shared the fish of the day, a Striped Sea Bass roasted in the brick oven. Very fresh and perfectly cooked. The dessert was a Semifreddo al Torrone that we both found excellent. The wines are reasonably priced. I suggest their Malbec and the Gavi di Gavi. We certainly will be back soon.

I really didn't liked because the waiter filled our glasses continuously, with the wine and water without asking, because the night was very hot and the wine/water become very warm in few minutes. Except the first glass, i couldn't drink a glass of cold wine with the food. The food was very good.

My third visit to Fabbrica! Food is extremely inconsistent! The first time my fish was bad, the second time everything was good. The third time the beet salad was missing most of the ingredients listed and the pasta special was ABSOLUTELY TASTLESS! When the check for 2 people is $130, this is just unacceptable. Although my second experience was good, the last experience will be long remembered! Don't think that I'll return again!
Our waiter was fantastic!

It was my first time at Fabbrica and I really loved it! My pasta with mussels was so yummy, and my friend's pizza looked and tasted simply great! The place looks very cool and the atmosphere is very cozy. I saw that they have tables outside, so I'm definitely coming back for brunch!

I am very fond of Fabbrica. The food is always very good, and innovative while remaining traditional Italian. Have eaten there many times. However the service is always inadequate. ALways polite and friendly but slow, late, reactive. For example--bread brought to the table, water refilled, bar drinks served. Last week when I dined there--not a busy night--we waited over 30 minutes for our food to be served. Occasional apologies were offered--but nothing else to make up for our delayed food, e.g drink or dessert complementary. I think the restaurant is undermanaged as to dining room experience. The have been open long enough to have fixed this.

Service is less than stellar, and this is consistent. I have been here before. I asked the man who seated us to check us in so I can get my OpenTable points. He clearly forgot when 30 minutes later I received a phone call from this very restaurant asking if I am still coming! The food is great, though. The poor service is a minor annoyance in a place like this.

My main complaint is that my linguine w/ clams was gritty i.e., the clams had not been properly washed...so every bite tasted like sand. My salad was uninspired and the pizza was only OK. I feel bad saying this, but there is no need to go back.

BRUNCH REVIEW only - It was not good. Way too savory for brunch. I had eggs and my husband and pancakes and we felt like we were eating either a dinner or a dessert. I will be back for dinner for sure, but not for brunch.

Good food but nothing special compared with what's already available in Northside Williamsburg. I would go more often if the Menu prices were a little more affordable, otherwise I prefer to keep going to other in the area.
The design of the room is more like a nightclub with pop-acid graphic wall that in my opinion has nothing to do with the home made Italian food. Service could be improved hiring professional servants.Very good wine selection.
With an adjustment to the menu prices and the room design,this place has a lof of potential.

First time there although the executive chef is very familiar because of his work at both Giano and PerBacco in Manhattan. Food is precious as expected and the personnel is attentive. Kind of expensive for a location in Williamsbourg with contemporary decor and communal tables but I will be back anyway in the future.

My spouse had a simple salad with a delightful dressing, plus it had cherries and marcona almonds. Delicious. I had a tuna sandwich, that was basically a deconstructed tuna salad. The tuna was high quality, plus it had a hard boiled egg and artichokes. It was truly superb. We finished with a marinara pizza, which held up well even though it had a lot of sauce (thus the name). Highly recommended. The service was really good, though the ambiance is a bit spare, though that is as advertised.

We had been to the cafe to enjoy their coffee and pastries before they opened for dinner. We had dinner there on one of their first nights and it was great. They had as many specials as they did choices on the menu. They were out of a couple of things, but that is not surprising for a new start. The servers were friendly and attentive. In fact, it was hard not to ignore an obnoxious diner next to us. We were impressed with how well the server handled him. The atmosphere was lively with a broad range of customers. We ordered the soup - and it was full of flavor - and the creme brulee style cheese dish. For entrees we had the pasta special and the "tastings of veal and tuna" - both were fantastic.

I have to say that this place is new, however the owner is not new in the field. The place is lovely. The staff needs training. They don't know that much about hospitality. The food is ok, nothing special. We ordered the creme brulee and cold cuts first. Both were fine. We ordered the pasta with pesto, but the tomatoes on the bottom were cold. The salmon was a small portion with too much salt. The dessert, a Tiramisu, was average. Cocktails, do not expect nothing good since they really don't have a bartender. I returned my drinks twice since tasted more juice thank vodka. They ended up waiving the charge for the cocktails. We also ordered a bottle of wine. We had to request bread. Has potential but needs management.
