    Great service, great food. Super busy tonight so a little hard to have a conversation. Love that they have Valet parking. Overall a great place for dinner before our theater tickets.

    Stylish interior and casual, friendly service. We were expecting more from the food which disappointed in flavor and execution, mostly due to lack of seasoning (agnellino and ortolana for instance) or careless technique (prosciutto fried sage dough was tough as was the pointless piadina on which lamb riblets sat). Don’t expect big, bold hearty flavors. Think subdued and restrained and maybe you won’t be as underwhelmed as we were.

    I have nothing bad to say so I gave it a 5 star review. Although I was not a big fan of my pasta. I think I ordered the wrong thing. What would help is if they have pictures on the menu. The girl I was with liked hers a lot, so really that’s all that mattered for me.

    Been a long time customer, but first time back since pandemic, food is consistent. But what bugs me is something happened to the table next to us: we walked in at our 5 o clock reservation, 80% of tables were open, these people wanted to change their seating because their table was right next to the bathroom, but the hostess instead of being hospitable, told these people that every table is reserved. While we finished our meals at 6:45, 60% of tables were still unoccupied. It just bothers me that I understand you’re a busy restaurant, but clients are barely coming back from pandemic to support out favorite restaurants, you should be more diplomatic, while the old saying of customer is always right. I hope the owners not forget that!

    Great outdoor seating area but also nice inside as well. Food is delicious!😋 It was a group of 4 of us and it was great to be able to share all the different dishes. Also had the pescanoce which was good and for dessert had an order of the Bigne and Panacotta, Both were outstanding. If great food and a nice ambiance os what you are looking for, The Factory will not disappoint.

    Service was good. Ambiance was good. Drinks were fantastic. I ordered the Never Say Never and it was liquid perfection. It contains: maker’s mark bourbon, fernet branca, gran classico, amaro rucolino, elderflower. It was so well balanced. I have to say it was one of the best drinks I've had in all of Los Angeles. I don't say that lightly. Their grilled yellow peaches with spec was divine and subtle. I had the gnocchi with the slow roasted oxtail sugo. The sauce was a little over seasoned, but outside of that tasted delicious. Definitely plan to go back, well worth the trip.

    Sat outside and unfortunately there was a terrible sewer odor that came and went. Also was seated by a generator, or some sort, that made a loud humming the whole time. Very unenjoyable ambiance. On top of that one of our pastas was bland, under seasoned, with an unappetizing texture, while the second was pasta was too salty. Food was nothing to really remember. This is at least the third time we've been to Factory Kitchen and we remembered it was decent... but with so many better Italian options in the DTLA area, I don't think we'd bother coming back.

    The food was delicious! From the drinks, the starters, the main course, and the dessert, we were more than satiated! Our server was knowledgeable and accommodating. We were a bit late for our reservation time, but were seated immediately. We sat outside and it was a bit cool, but they accommodated us with heaters. We’ve been here before but we can’t get enough of the pasta made in-house! DELICIOUS!!

    We had lunch in celebration of “National Middle Child Day”. Our waiter, Juan Carlos, along with the other staff was attentive and friendly. The food was as good as we remembered and delivered in courses. We ate at a leisurely pace and never felt rushed. This place continues to be one of my favorite DTLA destinations.
