Italian: The Factory Kitchen is a Northern Italian eatery from chef Angelo Auriana and Matteo Ferdinandi, whose past stints at Valentino and Drago Central prepared them for starting their own place. Here, they have made it all about the pasta. Of course, they offer a complete menu in this large, friendly restaurant in the heart of L.A.'s burgeoning Arts District, but the pasta really is the king. We'd suggest sharing, so that you can try everything; be sure to taste the mandilli de seta, paper-thin handkerchief pasta drenched in an almond basil pesto as well as the agnolotti stuffed with a flavorful veal-beef filling. Main courses cover seafood and meats, while vegetarians can choose from a variety of side dishes to construct a satisfying meal. Pair all with the well-selected Italian wines by the glass, and don't miss the homemade cannoli for dessert.
