FABBRICA Reviews, Toronto
This restaurant has incredibly well versed in menu knowledge. They are happy and seem convincingly sincere for service staff. Delightful every visit.
We always have the baked pasta which is enough to share, its a huge portion. Their cappuccinos are better than Starbucks!
Who knew an octopuss salad could be so delicious?! Amazing. Our server Lou suggested it and we were slightly underwhelmed when he mentioned but he convinced us and was right. Scrumptious - not chewy, flavourful spice, arugula and chickpeas. I could eat one right now! Maybe Lou can do house calls? Lol
Easily the beat restaurant at Shops at Don Mills. Hands down.
Order: Pappardell, rapini, seabream, calamari, chocolate cake
I love Fabbrica. The only critique I have is that the menu changes so frequently, you should never fall in love with a dish! They have the best gelato/sorbet flavours.
Went today, rule of dining out should be to stay away from restaurants if they're not busy. It was no wonder why the place was a ghost town. The service was slow and food was pricy. $10 for a Green salad and $22 for a mushroom pizza, $6 for a cold cappuccino and $10 for some dry chocolate cake.
Bartender wasn't wearing a bra, being seated at the bar with my husband - I was incredibly annoyed and disgusted. MISTER MCEWAN PLEASE MAKE YOUR STAFF WEAR BRAS! Bartender: they're on sale right now at LaSenza 2/$30.
Order: wine and meatballs
Went for a mid week lunch, charged $8/bottle of San Pellegrino (750ml)... 3 bottles for the two of us added up! We were started with some warm bread, and then a $8 bowl of olives. Our server suggested we share, and the Tortiglione was a giant serving of baked pasta with crumbled meatballs smothered in melted buffalo mozzarella. Delish. It was perfect for a chilly day. We capped off our meal with an unusual bt delicious take on Tiramisu, could have ate the whole thing myself. Delicious but pricy experience, can't imagine how much a dinner would cost.
Chef LeClair is so hot! He brought food to our table and we had stars in our eyes, what a dreamboat. The Porterhouse steak was a fabulous cut of meat that had tons of flavor. It was served on a huge piece of rustic wood, presentation was outstanding. More than enough meat for 2 people. We had a half portion of risotto as a side dish and it is delightful that they offer smaller portions. Our waitress was a cute Italian girl, her skirt was distractingly short. I was impressed that when they packed up our leftovers, they put it in coat check so we wouldnt forget it (which i tend to do). Free valet was the icing on the cake.
AMAZING! Gnocci was insanely soft, mushroom pizza had truffle in it (need i say more?) , and the zeppole were great to finish off the meal. Bottled water was $8/litre - 3 bottles added up. Our server Abbie was hilarious, and helped us decide on what to eat. They don't charge for splitting/sharing which is nice.
1. Come in groups of 4+ and share
2. drink tap water
3. request Abbie to be your waiter
4. sit in the room with the pizza oven
5. washrooms are weird
6. bring lots of money - its pricy
Order: gnocci, mushroom pizza, water, rapini, zeppole, lattes
