Located in a small street near the center of Grenoble, La Factory Gangi is an Italian restaurant where you would go for the atmosphere more than the food. Don’t get me wrong, the food, that also includes French dishes and is not what you would expect in a classic Italian place, is decent, with good prices, but it is more the sens of hospitality that stood out. And you could tell that regulars are going there to enjoy a good time.
Here is what we tried:
For a cocktail, a spritz, a fairly classic Italian mix that is always quite refreshing.
Straight to the entrees, Jodi went for the ravioles, sort of small ravioli filled with cheese and herbs, smothered by a mushroom sauce. This was a very good dish, perfect if like Jodi you love mushrooms, these being porcini.
On my side, I could not resist trying their magret de canard or duck breast with apples and a blueberry sauce. It was good, but I admit that the duck was slightly overcooked.
For dessert, we opted for the fondant au chocolat or chocolate lava cake that was not great, being a bit rubbery unfortunately.
We left the restaurant full and had a nice time there with my family. Although the kitchen was closed, they did not rush us and served us desserts, that was much appreciated. As I mentioned before, La Factory Gangi is not your typical Italian restaurant. I would more go there for the atmosphere rather than the food.
Enjoy (I did)!
