The Factory Kitchen - Los Angeles
Helmed by Restaurateur Matteo Ferdinandi, his wife Beverage Director Francine Diamond-Ferdinandi and their longtime friend and Partner Executive Chef Angelo Auriana, the Factory Kitchen re-defined the approach and the experience to casual dining in the city by combining elements of culinary arts, service, and design.
A traditional Italian Restaurant & Bar in the heart of the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles, the Factory Kitchen culinary concept focuses on local recipes from the Northern Italian Regions; but emphasizes on some Ligurian traditional dishes like Mandilli di Seta al Pesto alla Genovese and the Focaccina Calda al Formaggio di Recco.

What Insiders Are Saying
Factory Kitchen tends to gets overshadowed by its famous Arts District neighbors, but it's one of the best Italian spots in Los Angeles.
Food comes very slow
This is one of our favorite restaurants. Their food is always incredible. The homemade pasta is so light and flavorful. The salads are so fresh, the cheese so creamy. Can’t speak highly enough about the food!
Wonderful good and nice ambiaence. This was my third time at the restaurant, and it is consistently excellent. We ordered three starters and 3 pastas. All was exceptional.
Seriously incredible dining experience that made my girlfriends b-day celebration so special. Specific shout out to the hostess that greeted us and chatted with us at our table (blanking on her name but she's a younger female with glasses)! I'd absolutely come back and recommend this place to anyone looking for an amazing Italian dinner :)
Our 3rd time dining at Factory Kitchen in LA. Outstanding every time. I tried to stop at the new Factory Kitchen in Las Vegas but it was closed for a private event. Will be going to Las Vegas again soon and will try it again. Have told others about the LA location and recommended it.
The only real complaint was the noise level. Otherwise, the food and service were excellent.
Always a treat to go to the Factory Kitchen. The food and service is outstanding. The Green Pesto Pasta is otherworldly.
Always a great experience at Factory Kitchen.
Food NEVER disappoints and the service is great too.
Everything was fabulous!!!!
Great food and service! Would return
This is a solid restaurant but I am not sure it is worth the price. Wines by the glass are very expensive and the choice is limited.
Great service. Accommodating dietary menu suggestions from server. Overall, i will definitely dine again :)
This place is great, has been great, and it has remained great. For a long period. I can't say that about a lot of restaurants in Los Angeles. This one stands the test of time, and puts out amazing food, served by amazing people. The go to is the pesto pasta - homemade, like air, delicious. Go. Be happy. Eat well. Enjoy.
Food is always fresh and delicious. Staff is always amazing. I love this place for business meetings and for pleasure.
The handkerchief pasta with pesto and the flatbreads are excellent.
The food is really excellent! Started with a huge salad easily split for 3, then two pastas to share and a side of yummy brussel sprouts! A couple of glasses of wine, no dessert. Lovely mid week evening. Not inexpensive but not ridiculous either.
My friend and I had never been to the restaurant and we were very happy with the service, the quality of food and the ambiance of the restaurant. The team of servers were on point. The plates of food delivered to other patrons' tables looked amazing. Not only will I recommend to my friends, I shall bring them myself.
We went to dinner with another couple and we where pleasantly surprised. The service was great and the food (a bit pricey) but just delicious. We will be back. Cannot wait!
This is the first Italian restaurant that I have dined at that actually made me feel like I was back in Italy. The pizza was superb, the liver pate mouth watering, and the porchetta was amazing. I will be back.
Reliably good food. Efficient operation. No pretense. One of our go-to places.
A lot of the food had carrots and celery in it. I am allergic to some vegetables so the choices were very slim. The waiter stated that there was no way to take out those ingredients. Since they can not accommodate my allergies I won't be able to go back to eat...
It was a nice place and it would be great if you only went for drinks.
Our meal was outstanding! The service was fantastic, the ambiance is relaxing and hip and the food is unbelievable. Our party had Mary’s chicken and some pasta dishes for dinner. We had the cheesy bread and prosciutto bread appetizer. Those were delicious! We had 4 different desserts and they were all superb. Highly recommend this restaurant! 10/10
Wonderful and delicious pastas like nowhere else
Great service by servers and clearers
Non alcoholic drinks delectable
The pastas were amazing, the wine was great, the boneless rabbit was inventive and tasty but a little bit salty… and I like salt. I felt the lighting was a little too dim; there could have been better individual table lighting
We have visited several times now and felt this meal was the best yet! We all tried some new things rather than our old stand-bys and were not disappointed...will be back again!
Everything was delicious! Our 3rd visit at F.K. homemade pasta is wonderful. Appetizers too. Highly recommend to all my friends. We're over 60 years old, so the noise level is a challenge, but service was very good.
The Factory Kitchen serves interesting and delicious food. I am a capable cook; so when I go out to eat I prefer to eat food that I normally would not prepare myself. The Factory Kitchen serves elevated comfort food in a cool setting. Their wine list and cocktails are excellent as well.
This is my second time in LA i have visited this awesome restaurant. Excellent food is the best description.
The food was very tasty, the service was decent the area was unique, it was a good experience all around.
The restaurant was a bit loud- to be expected though due to the layouts
This is the best Italian restaurant in Los Angeles.
Nice casual ambience. Good appetizers. Outstanding pastas. The steak we ordered was not very good. Nice wine list but a little on the pricy side. Overall good dining experience.
Wonderful all around
Another fantastic experience. We love this place, the food is always incredicble. Highly reccommend anyone thinking of coming here!
Took a friend to dinner that just lost his mom.
I love this place, truly authentic Italian food, actually brought a visiting native Italian who was pleasantly surprised at the variety of dishes and quality!
Home made pasta and porchetta must try
Service is v personable.
Reunited with friends
Food excellent.service lutstabding always
Would certainly recommend this restaurant to friends
Factory kitchen has been on my restaurant list for over 2 years...why did it take me so long to eat here??? Everything is good...the pesto in the start of course...get everything and share...desserts are just ok...
This was my first visit to The Factory Kitchen. I heard that the food is fantastic and was not disappointed! Highly recommend making a reservation as it gets very crowded.
