    Good was adequate but halibut fish serving size for price extremely disappointing, pasta was okay, focaccia was again:okay. Long weekend so expected it to be busy but tables basically on top of each other and along the wall could not carry your own conversation without hearing details of all surrounding you and their conversations.

    Dined at Fabbrica last night, we have dined many times and have been customers since the restaurant was Sisi's. I have always expect more since McEwan took it over several years ago, perhaps our dining experience last night is related to the groups overall financial issues. We arrived on time and from the start were rushed, we no sooner sat down that we were read the specials, waiter was back in a few minutes to take our order, we hadnt even looked, its not a complex menu but we were only just settling in. Despite the rush, there was quite a gap between our appetizers and when the main course arrived. I ordered the beet and fennel salad---it was significantly over salted and was hidden under a massive lump of grated cheese (I love cheese but this was way over), my main was the bone in veal parm, 4 pieces of pasta, massive veal---but well over cooked. Tables incredibly close together so much so that as the waiter was removing plates next to us (that were dirty), they were handled overtop of my plate----sorry thats disgusting in todays world. Service was lacking, no thank you as we left, nor any acknowledgement. It felt like there was a real void,

    Trying to pack more people in I assume we were given only option to sit in a table placed in the main traffic thoroughfare and less than 2 ft from large group at next to us always waiting for servers to drop things on us as they had to specifically navigate past our table within a very narrow path. We eventually just walked out. Very disappointed after being a long time local client Michael

    We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and we were not disappointed. This was our first time dining here and we were impressed from the moment we walked in and then our server pushed it up a notch with his pleasant manor and attentiveness and then WOW, the food was delicious!! We spent more than we usually would but it was worth every penny. We can’t wait to visit again but want to enjoy the patio next time!! Thank you for making this birthday so special.

    Excellent atmosphere , great wine , professional service. Enjoyed the bone in yeal parm was delicious , massive piece tasted wonderful. Only thing I couldn’t get over was the pasta was presented plain on top of the veal with sauce on the side. For Italian restaurant thought was very unusual. Just my opinion this didn’t take away from wonder tasting food and service. Will be back again

    Been here 10 times before! All good until last night. We waited over an hour and a half for our food to arrive once we ordered. We asked several times and told it would be just a few more minutes. When food finally arrived it was luke warm at best. Nothing offered (drink/app/discount) Bill was $111 - you would think they would have comped the wine and or offered us something :(

    After a littles research online we found our way to Fabbrica and we were certainly not disappointed. The meal was incredible from the Arancini and beef tartare to the two pasta dishes we tried, I especially liked the Linguine Al Nero Con Cozze. Everything had incredible flavour and was presented in a great manner. Would highly recommend.

    Enjoyed the Caesar salad, fresh oysters, burrata, and Derek’s focaccia to start. The appetizers were delicious and decently sized. Shared the pepperoni pizza and lasagna. Both were very tasty and not super heavy! Was happy to see De Loach California wine on the list, very nice. Our server Courtney was super sweet and efficient. She had our Caesar salad split in two for us and recommended the ricotta fritters for dessert (they were heavenly). 10/10 recommend if you’re in the Bruce County area!

    We enjoyed being out! I think the thing that changed the dining experience for us was when a female server delivered our appetizers and was unnecessarily snippy about the placing of the food. The whole table was shocked. We watched another server, I think his name was Chad, and he was very friendly and engaging with his tables. If we ever return, I would ask to be in his section. The pizza my husband had was amazing. Two of us had the short rib and agreed it was flavourless. The table next to us said the same about the short rib…”I can make it better myself at home!”. At a near $500 bill, it was lack lustre.

    We dined at Fabbrica on Saturday April 9th and had the most disappointing experience. From the moment we sat down it was obvious our server wanted to be anywhere else besides here, at work. I ordered the short rib entree ($40), but sent it back because it was so bland. Our server did not issue an apology, or any regrets that my meal was not to my liking, he simply removed my plate, said “let me get you something else” and, after dropping off a menu said, “here, pick something else”. My second meal was delivered but the server never came back to check if this meal was satisfactory. In fact, he also never inquired if my parents were enjoying their food either. His service was perfunctory, at best, and the food, for its price, was underwhelming. We understand a restaurant works as a team, so our tip did not reflect how we really felt about our dining experience, but we asked for a manager’s email before leaving to share our experience. We never heard back. I’ve worked in the industry a long time so I can say with confidence, we deserved better.
