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.

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.
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.
Amazing food at a reasonable price. I loved the ambience and they treated us very well!!!
Food was great and the service top notched. We will definitely be back.
We love this place so much! Food is top notch, incredible quality and very delicious.
Awesome dinner! Dined with my brother who is from out of town and we were both duly impressed!
The Factory Place Hospitality Group (Factory Kitchen, Brera Ristorante and sixth+mill) has the best options for Italian in DTLA!
Had a team dinner of 15 and was really pleased with the service. Timely but not hurried. Food was consistently delicious.
The food is always amazing, particularly the prosciutto on fried sage dough, handkerchief pasta and beef cheeks. The service was highly attentive.
Birthday - great
A very enjoyable dinner. Had the Porchetta which was delish but a little bit dry. Had the cannoli for dessert which was absolute heaven.
One of the better restaurants in LA. Wonderfully consistent and inventive Italian.
Great service and outstanding pastas
Food and service second to none. But we like best was the service was excellent without being pretentious. Will definitely go back.
The food was excellent, especially the handkerchief pasta and the Porchetta. Wine list had interesting choices but could be more representative of the glories of Italian grape varieties. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Noise level is WAY too high. Installing some noise dampening would be most welcome.
Incredible Italian food, great group atmosphere but...
Do not come here as a 1st date, Noise level is off the charts and you won’t be the only one getting to know your date.
Loved the open kitchen and the smells coming out of that place makes your mouth water.
Quite possibly the freshest damn pasta in LA. Really nice salads as well. Friendly and efficient service. Tables are close together and the place can get a bit noisy, so don’t expect the quiet intimate conversation to proceed unfettered.
All the staff was very attentive and the food delicious. I had the cremosella salad, salmon and for desert the pane ... All delicious!
Awesome every time!!!!!
The food was excellent!
We always love this resto. It’s in the top 5 in Los Angeles.
Great food. Very loud noise level. Service was fine.
Everything was delicious! Best Northern Italian in LA!
Such a great room, it had a really nice energy and vibe. Staff was very attentive and had great recommendations. The porchetta was divine and I am definitely coming back just for that. Looking forward to my next visit here. So glad they participated in dineLA.
Food was amazing!!! Service is exceptional. Waiters will explain what is in the yummy dishes being enjoyed.
It was the best restaurant week dinner set I have ever had! $49 you get an appetizer, one pasta and one meat course, and a glass of wine! Removing the desert is perfect for me to keep calories low. We have three people so we covered almost all the dishes that are on the dinner set menu, and none of it disappointed us, all of them are delicious and delicate!
Took our boys there after a show and the food was excellent. Service was great. We had a wonderful time.
We had a party of 8 and everyone enjoyed their meal! Our server was friendly and attentive. We'll be back for sure!!
Great job, as usual! Food and Service were excellent.
Food was amazing. Place was very cute but loud and very cold, AC was blasting all night long, a little unnecessary. The service was good, they were a little too busy so no personal treatment but overall everything was great! Will be back for sure.
Great place to have dinner. Enjoyed our dine LA experience. This was the second time coming in this restaurant. The pasta was my favorite. Drinks were amazing as well.
the monkfish and the tagliatini with rabbit ragu were very good. the Minestrone portion was huge and one bowl was enough for two people. Our server, Amanda, was excellent
Delicious and amazing service!
Uniquely great tasting food. We were pleasantly surprised at the flavors and food presentations. Highly recommended for foodies!
Andrew was terrific. He explained our meal to us in great detail. We had a terrific time.
We specifically said that one of us was vegetarian and the waitress suggested to order a Pizza that had anchovies in it. That is not vegetarian!!!
after eating an anchovy, my friend did not fill like having anything else.
They comped dessert, with was nice.
Food was good, it always is.
The food and wine was delicious. The pork belly was superb.
Amazing Food and Amazing Service. Still one of my favorites to bring business partners.
We typically really enjoy the food at this LA dining spot.
On this visit we tried the Dine LA menu. It offered an appetizer, pasta course and entree, with a glass of white or red wine for $49. A great deal, to say the least. Unfortunately, the selections we made were not up to our expectations of what this kitchen can accomplish. We will return, but will order some of our tried and true favorites off their regular menu.
