Los Angeles’ The Factory Kitchen now has a home in Las Vegas, sitting on restaurant row at the Venetian. Restaurateur Matteo Ferdinandi, who formerly worked at Spago, and chef Angelo Auriana, who spent 18 years as the chef at LA’s Valentino, serve traditional Italian dishes in a trattoria-style restaurant.
Architect Thomas Schlesser of Design Bureaux created the look of the 152-seat restaurant the features a palette of orange and forest green with reclaimed wood tables. Rose gold Art Deco-style light fixtures, concrete walls, and gray banquettes are found throughout the space.
In the lounge, 25 seats have a backdrop of a large neon centerpiece with Italian words “Andiamo,” “Ciao,” “La Dolce Vita,” “Buon Appetito,” and “Mangia” making the perfect Instagram background. The restaurant features industrial details as well as a white marble bar and pasta station. Tempered glass lines the outside of the restaurant façade.
