    Really cool spot in an interesting area. The google information indicated Vegetarian options, but I would say this is not a place for Vegetarians and certainly not for those who are plant-based/Vegan. The service was not great. That being said, the food was awesome. Appetizers, gnocchi, parpadella with rabbit, pesto and deserts were great. If you love pasta I would recommend making the trip.

    We always enjoy our dinners at The Factory Kitchen. It was quieter than usual which was nice because we could really hear each other as we were conversing rather than feeling like we needed too yell. Everyone from the front to the wait staff was very accomodating and on their game and we never felt rushed. The food was exceptional as always, we ate way too much!

    Expected really delicious food and while ingredients on menu sounded unique and inventive, nothing really was really particularly delicious. Service was also pretty slow and inattentive. Maybe they were short-handed. Employees were very nice and polite and friendly nonetheless.

    Halfway through our meal, my wife and I looked at each other and said this is probably our favorite restaurant in LA… It’s not exactly underrated —a lot of people know how great it is—but it constantly surprises me how they keep up the quality and..joy.

    We came on a Saturday night and seated upon our reservation time. I've been here a few times in the past but the service here is subpar. We stood at the host table upon arrival only to wait while the hostess was on the line. Two other host staff were standing right beside her and failed to acknowledge us for 5 minutes until the hostess was free from the phone call. I'd expect someone to at least say hello and it would be a minute. We were seated upon acknowledgment of our reservation but sat without any waiter for 20 minutes. Only water was provided and menus. Other tables that were seated after our table were served drinks already. I had to wave down the waiter just to inquire if he was our waiter or not. He appeared bothered and busy helping another table. As he came by, he did acknowledge we was to be our waiter, and I mentioned to him that we have been waiting 20 minutes. Our waiter was very unknowledgeable about drinks or the food menu. No clue to recommend drinks and food and no personality at all. Quite a disappointment. I've had better and more knowledgeable waiters at chain restaurants. A shame for a restaurant on the Bib Gourmand list. The food and drinks here are very good. A saving grace to the experience.

    More suited for a smaller party as it is crowded and noisy. Food is good but portions are small. When we decided to order additional items to make sure we had enough food, we never received them. Not sure we will return

    We had come here before and just loved it! But this time the service felt rushed, the food was good but the portions were tiny and we both wanted to order more but the kitchen closed and they hadn’t told us. Definitely a bummer and we were very disappointed.

    Julie was our waitress, Jeff the Host and Carlos another very helpful waiter.....Everything was beautiful..Our 1st time there, will definitely make it again. We started with the Peperu as a appetizer...5 small stuffed red pepper w/ creamy cheese on top of an arugula, oil, hard cheese sheets. The Casonzei was superb, nice crunchy lardons inside the ravioli. The gnocchi was especially flavorful. Not the greatest part of LA, but the place was quiet at 6, were seated right away, but I can see with the concrete walls and floors where it might get a bit noisy. The night was perfect!

    First time at this restaurant, good ambiance, great drinks, we ordered the duck and the ribeye steak with bone marrow. The ribeye needed more flavor, it was cooked to perfection, the bone marrow was cold (solid) it was replaced. Overall we had a great experience. Definitely we are coming back and recommending to others.

    No way should earn a Michelin star. Good quality food but nothing exceptional. Fried leek and chick fritter appetizer was uninspired. Leeks lacked seasoning. Chickpeas looked like French fries and had no relation to a fritter. However, at least they were seasoned and good. Pasta handkerchief with pesto was the best thing we had albeit was not hot enough and pasta was not Al dente. Foccasia with mushrooms was tasty but a bit rich and could have used some greens for contrast and to cut the richness. Wine list is expensive. With a bit more attention to detail maybe they will truly earn a Michelin star.

    We went specifically to have the malfatti and sadly the waiter did not bring out two of the dishes we ordered to share at our table of four—one being the malfatti. The restaurant was kind enough to provide a couple desserts to make up for the error but we will likely go elsewhere in the ArtsDistrict in the future. Disappointed from a one Michelin star restaurant.

    Stick to their specialty menu items. They are tried and true. Potato pancake with cheese and grilled radicchio was amazing! As was the meat filled pasta. We missed the a few others dishes and wished we had passed on the rib eye. Cooked to perfection but not top grade meat imo. Very loud and seemed to cater to birthdays. Friendly staff and make space for us due to rain in LA! Will go back again soon.

    Food is mediocre. I tried out this restaurant because they claimed to be Michelin 2021. Well, the food didn’t presented as Michelin quality. If at all, its just ok. Good for date night , but just a one time thing. Its not advisable to go for a repeat dining experience. Service was fast. Attentive servers. Food mediocre.

    The experience of seeing old friends after 25 years was amazing; however, how does an Italian restaurant run out of bread at 7:00pm on a Sunday evening? The manager made it right by comping our desserts, but not really sure how not having bread is a thing. The food was good, but surely not extraordinary. Our waitress Mabel was fantastic and the overall experience was about a B.

    Cozy, warm, busy, vibrant ambiance. Some of the best pasta and lligurian focaccina I have ever had. I highly recommend the funghi focaccina! Out of this world! Their rib eye and pork belly, which we had great expectations for, were average in comparison to our remaining dishes. Lightly and perfectly seasoned dishes.
