We came late (closing time) and felt the manager was very welcoming. He didn’t rush us at all.
The food was good but not warm, not hot. That was a bit disappointing. Didn’t want to complain because we got there 15 min before closing. Still...
The food and service in the outdoor setting was comparable to the indoor dining room. We really enjoyed our meal. It was nice to dine at this restaurant again.
They did a good job of keeping the tables clean and the staff wore PPE. The outdoor dining area was carpeted.
If you come I highly recommend a sweater or lite jacket. I wish they had outdoor heaters and/or more effective wind shields.
Looking forward to returning.
So happy to see this place open again! Such great food and service!
Everything great considering Covid!
food is excellent as always. outdoor venue, ok, needs some elegance and cheer to be added to it. servers, rusty, hopefully will get easier as we get used to this new normal.
Our food was not up to par as they were in prior times.
The food was excellent and service was great. For post-COVID diners: The "patio" I expected was actually just part of the parking lot that had been enclosed/covered with an awning; nonetheless, it was a great experience.
Food to try: Peperu, Pizzata and Colpo di Mare were delicious! Also, the canollis were probably some of the best I've had (and I've been to Italy twice). Would definitely recommend and will be back.
Pasta was terrific. The steak was outstanding. Highly recommended. They were a littl chaotic-but who can blame em with all the COVID restrictions etc. great fir a date
Haven't been here for years, and it's as good, if not better now. Dishes are precisely balanced, beautifully detailed and expertly executed.
Mi piace molto..... pasta fresca fatto in casa!!
Buono buono buono!
The food was unbelievable. Mark was a great server!
The food was as fabulous as ever. It was a little bittersweet, being outside, having the wait staff wear masks (patrons wear masks when moving around but may remove at the table.) But overall a wonderful evening, our first dining out experience since March and we enjoyed it very much.
Whitney was fantastic and the food was spectacular as always!
Great! Great! Great! Great!
Wonderful to the Factory Kitchen open again.
Always a joy to dine here. A bit warm though, this time. Turn the heat down!
Absolutely DELICIOUS food! The roasted beet ravioli is TO. DIE. FOR! Service was exceptional. Highly recommend!
It was somewhat happenstance that we ended up dining here, but WOW. This is hands down our favorite Italian restaurant in LA. The service was perfect; warm, efficient, unobtrusive. The food was outstanding. I had the Casonzei, which was so flavorful and perfectly prepared. My son and husband had the Modenesei, which has truffle butter and truffles. Great, reasonably priced wines. Nice atmosphere, and reasonably priced. Do not miss.
Love this place! One of my favorite go-to’s in LA!
Birthday lunch with friends..
Good food and a super waiter..
Nice ambiance.. will go back!
Everything was delicious. Make sure you include the focaccina in your meal. The meal was so good that our LA friends booked dinner with friends the following weekend!
Good food but little salty
Been wanting to try Factory Kitchen for a while, but found the overall experience just OK. Had a reservation but had to wait 30 minutes to get seated. Their Cavolonero salad was bland and underdressed, their signature mandilli di seta pasta was pretty good as was the cansonzei, but the modenedi felt like an uninspired truffle play that didn’t showcase its star ingredient very well. All in all there are much better pasta experiences for the price point, and I do not think I will return.
One of best restaurants (Italian) in the LA area. Have been there multiple times. Most recent visit we had the mandilli and casonzei, Their cannoli is one of the best I have ever had. I almost order the cannoli whenever I get the opportunity. You will not be disappointed. Will be going back.
Fantastic service. Pasta is amazing! Good cocktail menu as well.
The server was friendly, but sadly not attentive or visible throughout our dinner. Someone from our table was always trying to flag him down or we were asking other staff for service.
The best Italian food. Eating here makes me feel like I’m in Italy.
Always enjoy a visit to Factory Kitchen. The food is outstanding!
Without a doubt, The Factory Kitchen has amazing food and great wait staff. Don't be in a rush when you go...our mistake was trying to eat before the theatre...even with plenty of time...as you won't get seated at the time of your reservation. Also, it's not the best place for a large group as it is quite noisy...loud talking + music so you might prefer to be with one or just a few folks.
Once we were finally seated, we let our waitress know that we had theatre tickets and she did an awesome job accomodating us by getting our food to us in great time and making sure we had what we needed several times. Again, fantastic food, great energy...just not the place to be in a rush. Oh..and bring your own wine..they will uncork it for you for a reasonable fee. Enjoy!
Great service and amazing food. Definitely recommend!
Pastas are amazing
Food was excellent. Andrew the General Manager was very knowledgeable about the wines they carry and described the entrees with great detail. He kept us entertained with little stories of the voyage of the ingredients. And great descriptions of the plates.
Much too long to be served.
Menu very limited and unappealing.
No gluten free options
We have been there many times before and it was excellent all around. We would NOT return!
Great food in refurbished factory - fun atmosphere, a little loud-so not for quiet conversations
I was celebrating a birthday. Food was great. Service was very good.
Food was tasty yet expensive for what it is
Place is very nice
Parking is difficult unless you pay valet
Food was unique and very good. We had prosciutto with burrata on dough and also seared tuna for appetizers. Our group had osso buco, porchetta, and some pasta dishes. Everyone enjoyed. For dessert our group had banana bread pudding, gelato and a cake similar to tiramisu. The tiramisu was on buckwheat cake so it was a little unusual. The wines were expensive for a glass ranging $14-24. The restaurant brought a special dessert for a birthday in our group. Overall we enjoyed our experience but did not find it over the top amazing.
Food we ordered were, we have to say that, better than average. The service was OK. It was a bit loud inside that it was difficult to talk to our friends at the other end of the table. Prices were reasonable to what we got. Comparing to other places, I'd have to give 4 stars.
The food here is fantastic! The handkerchief pasta lives up to the hype. Minus 1 star for having to wait 25 mins even though we had a reservation and the cocktail I ordered tasted like cough medicine.
Great service and excellent food. The beet ravioli and prosciutto shared appetizer were amazing.
This was a birthday celebration meal, and I made the reservations stating it was a birthday, the restaurant called me to confirm the reservations and I reminded them it was a birthday celebration, yet not one single person at the restaurant wished our daughter a happy birthday. Not one!
To top that off, we weren't given our points for the reservation.
