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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Pasta was mediocre - a lot of their dishes are heavily salted. Nothing stood out. I’d recommend Rossoblu or Bestia instead.

The food is absolutely delicious! The price is fair but it’s one of the best Italian restaurants in town. The Hostess and servers were very accommodating. One of the bartender on bar however was lacking the whole philosophy, “service with a smile.” The Ambiance is casual with a hint of young hipster professionals and the atmosphere is definitely loud and bustling. Overall it was good experience.
