Excellent patio. Our table wasn’t ready when we arrived so we didn’t end up eating until later than we anticipated. The food was very good though.

Pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. Simple options yet presented beautifully and flavoured nicely. Dishes were the bass, carbonara and mushroom gnocchi.

We always enjoy dinner on the patio at Fabbrica! Their patio is especially charming with all the potted herbs and lavender.
The staff are always friendly and attentive and the food never disappoints!
We especially love the burrata starter with Dereck's forcacca. The carbonara and the salmon are favs!
With the Covid 19 restrictions we always feel safe dining there!

Made a reservation for 4 through Open Table. Confirmed that back via Open Table a few days later when asked to do so. Then received a phone message from the restaurant about two hours before the reso time to confirm it again, which I did. Arrived on time only to be told first that the table was not ready and to wait outside. Then watched others go in and they were seated. Then were told the people at "our table" had not left yet and to wait outside. Then the Manager came and first tried to tell us we did not have a reso and there was confusion thru Open Table. THAT WAS A LIE - I showed her the visual voice mail message recording FROM THE RESTAURANT confirming our reso, and the name of the person who called me. She went away and left us standing there. Then she came back and told us she could not ask the people at "our table" to leave, who she said had been sitting there since 6pm. Our reso was for 830pm and it was now 9pm. On and on it went, excuse after lame excuse. Bottom line - WORST EXPERIENCE at a restaurant ever and showed how incompetent their management is and/or their policies are. Fifty minutes later at the end of the night after standing outside were offered a table finally once people were leaving. When walking to the patio since we reserved outdoors heard an employee say why are they coming in the kitchen is closing.... that was the last straw. Three stayed since no other place to go to by then in Thornbury and I left since would have not been good company for the others and was sick of being lied to and treated so poorly. Went to a MacDonald's drive thru for dinner... at least they know what they are doing.

Hello Mr. Stephen Prest, When you arrived, people were still dining at the table that you booked. We cannot always predict the future, and while the table before you took a long time to dine, we tried to accommodate you in the same way we did them. Unfortunately you refused every offer we gave you. It's a shame you left, because your guests that stayed thanked us for their wonderful experience. Hopefully, you will try us again, as this we an unprecedented incident. julianna@fabbrica.ca

Food was great and service was too.
Good Covid precautions taken.
Not happy that we got a high top table, having reserved many weeks ahead, but not a deal breaker.
Only one dessert option and no Gluten Free option for me.

Ate here on a Thursday evening out on their beautiful patio. Very classy place yet relaxed vibe from staff who were very attentive. Food was excellent, well prepared, beautifully presented and delicious. Great wine list. We highly recommend, even if the prices are a big higher than other establishments but you get what you pay for here! We will definitely be back soon.

Was a very good meal on a beautiful patio. Service was attentive but not overwhelming . Of course the fact that it was our first meal out in six months helped as well.

Had dinner with a couple girlfriends on the back patio. Totally underrated and no idea why there aren’t more photos of the beautiful patio online! Great food, distanced, good wine and service. Will be back for sure.

We would have happily given Fabbrica a 5-star rating but couldn't because of the table situation vis-a-vis social distancing. Just as we were finishing our meal a lovely couple was seated at the table beside us and their table was at best 3 feet away from ours. We both moved our chairs as far away from the adjacent table as did the other couple but it was clear that because of fixed banquettes we weren't going to be able to manage. There were other tables on the patio that would have more than provided the necessary distance which was pretty frustrating.
We very quickly paid our bill and left. I think that we're going to have to go back to take out from Fabbrica until this virus leaves us.

Hello Nancy, This is a trying time for all. We have had to cut back on our tbl #s and also the # of people that we have seated at each table, which means we only have a few options for tables of 2. Upon arrival it was clear to us that you were unhappy with your tbl option, hence, you were offered 2 other choices. Inside was also available. We are sorry that you were unhappy in the end. If you choose to book with us again, I can help with a tbl choice for you. Best julianna@fabbrica.ca

We had a wonderful meal. My salad was outstanding: so finely prepared. My risotto was excellent, salty, of course, as expected, but succulent. I much enjoyed the apple fritters which were just a little underdone so as to be vet toothsome. We’ll be back! Our service was outstanding, too. Thanks.

It’s a little boring when I push the 5 stars repeatedly - but all for good reason! Matthew once again an excellent server, along with Juliana’s managing, (hello red wine crash!) amazing food (never had a bad meal!). Pricey? Of course. The best things in life are!
