Had a family dinner to celebrate our engagement. It was a great atmosphere and the food was very enjoyable. Our waitress was fantastic. Only criticism is that it was very difficult to split the bill, and I felt the cocktails were a little expensive (i will say their espresso martini was fabulous though!). The toilets also needed a little extra tlc

Food was tasty just not very hot!
We felt rushed as our plates were taken away before we put our cutlery down. I one case there was dipping sauce taken away even tho we were still using it!
Prices were good.

We arrived at the restaurant just after our booking time of 6:00pm. We stood at the door for more than 5 mins waiting to be greeted and seated while a waitress set a table in front of us. We were then sat at our table which was a high table despite being asked in the online booking and choosing a low table. We were told who our waitress would be with us shortly and then left without water or acknowledgement for more than 10 min while tables around us who had drinks continued to be served.
Our waitress only told us about the specials when asked if there were any after my husband had already ordered.
Our entree, my husbands main and the dessert were excellent, however my sage and pancetta gnocchi was burnt and too salty.
My previous experience at this restaurant was much better and the service disappointed.

We were seated in the far corner which made it secluded and quieter, but it also meant we would get forgotten.
Food was awesome
But our water was always empty, didn’t get spoons with the kids pasta meals, and other little things.

All and all a great restaurant though

My favourite place for wood fired pizza & craft beer. Owner is super friendly and attentive, and remembers me. Local to me which is a bonus. They have a real passion for great food, casual dining and craft beer. Highly recommended.

Unfortunately disappointed with the pizza, lacking flavour and soggy base.
However on a positive note, Entrees were nice & service was very good.

Not enough wait staff. They were very friendly. Terrible terrible gnocchi. $108 for 2 meals and a bottle of wine. Wine came out at the same time as our food.

Very efficient service. Tried because colleague had some gnocchi for lunch and told me where he purchased. Food was amazing and perfect ambiance. I look forward to future visits and maybe having a bigger group party. Looks like it caters well for this.

A very relaxed and casual venue but with superb quality Italian food. Enough with burgers, ribs and wings already! The service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. And there's a good selection of beers on tap too. A great place to gather with a group of friends.

We’ve been here many times & will continue to do so. The pizzas are just incredible & the service is always good too.

My only criticism is the noise level which can be really loud, however, When the food is that good it’s bound to be packed out with people.

We ordered the honey truffle bread, which had a good overall flavour, the tomato gnocchi sugo which seriously lacked depth and flavour - I thought it was too salty and the gnocchi was bit fluffy. We also had the four cheese pizza which was nice, but nothing major.

I would describe this place as a basic Italian but not authentic.

Always great food and friendly service when we dine.
Can’t beat it for a local Southside feed and great value for money.
Personally the best pizzas around.

A big thank you to the staff at Factory51
I had a table booking near to a large birthday gathering, the manager considerately moved us to an outdoor table.

We were only planning on having 2 drinks, but we felt so comfortable we had dinner as well and stayed well beyond our curfew.
The service and food was excellent, they did not skip a beat

Wide variety of dishes on the menu. Service was great and the food tasty, served hot and a good sized pizza for one. It is a pleasant place to be but unfortunately there was a function in the function room and we left when children there started screaming at each other. The restaurant is not at fault but it being so close to the tables ended a great evening on a low note.

I found that the Factory 51 was in the alfresco area was very loud.
We asked to be moved and we were accommodated straight away.
I would not hesitate to recommend Factory 51.
