Italian Delights and A Festive Ambience – Only at Fabbrica Della Pizza in Elgin!

Loads of carbs, stringy goo of cheese, soul-satisfying proteins – I’m talking about my favourite kind of comfort food, i.e. Italian food with all the food groups on a single plate. And, it’s not just pizza. To be honest, I’m actually a little tired of the same items with different names on the menus of the pizzerias delivering the generic pizzas in 30 minutes. All right, I know that for someone who often catches the fascination to get fit and eat healthy, loading up on carbs and fat is not always ideal. But, that doesn’t mean I’m not always on the lookout for a goof place where I can indulge in good Italian delights. And I just found an incredible place. Fabbrica Della Pizza in Elgin offers beautiful food and a festive ambience that will surely lift your mood any time you’re looking for some respite!

Location and Ambience

Fabbrica Della Pizza is located in Elgin’s Allenby Road in Sreepally, close to the Forum Mall. The moment you set foot inside the restaurant, you’ll catch the festivity of its ambience. There’s a splash of colours everywhere, with the artwork on the walls, and artificial plants and flowers everywhere. The wooden structure gives the place has a vintage look, and complements the artwork. Then there’s the crystal ball chandelier. The colours, flowers and lights together give the place a celebratory, almost Christmassy feel. The ground floor has seats adjacent to the windows, giving the diners a view of the busy road. The mezzanine floor, with the mood lighting and vines across the ceiling, is yet another beautiful dining space! I was totally in love with the restaurant, even before the food arrived!

The name, Fabbrica Della Pizza, literally means “factory of the pizza” in English. But, I can vouch that the place is more than just “cheese and sauce on round bread”, as most pizza-haters describe it. We tried a number of items from their list of starters, mains, desserts, and drinks. Take a look:

Starters

The spread for the evening started with Calamari Fritto Misto and Pollo Piadina. The fried calamari rings had a light semolina-batter coating with a soft crunch, and the squids melted in the mouth. I found the garlic caper sauce a bit too pungent and sour for my taste. The Pollo Piadina were little flat bread wraps with grilled chicken, rucola, marinated tomatoes, and caramelised onions, with a drizzling of a lovely pesto sauce. the wraps were absolutely heavenly, with the soft chicken pieces and the sweet onion forming a delicious marriage! It was just the right way to get the juices in the stomach flowing!

Mains

I started with the Parmesan Crema Pasta with Bacon. What a heavenly dish it was! Right now, as I write about it, I’m reliving the dance of flavours in my mouth. Give me a minute as I salivate… Ok, I’m back; so, this dish was a creamy, cheesy, bacony beauty, a must-try for pasta-lovers. I could go on writing about (or eating) it, but it would be unfair towards the “factory of the pizza” if I didn’t move on to pizza. You can choose your combo of sauce, toppings, and even cheese. But, I had one of their specialty pies – the Pollo Piccante with fresh pesto sauce, roast chicken, jalapenos, caramelised onions, mozzarella and feta. I loved how the pesto sauce had a strong flavour of olive oil and basic, which went beautifully with the sweetness of the caramelised onions! A unique pizza experience, indeed!

Dessert

Time for something sweet! I tried the Pizza Al Nutella, Affogatto, and Budino. I don’t particularly care about the combined taste of pizza crust and chocolate; unfortunately, the thin crust, roasted almonds and the Nutella failed to impress me. What I loved was the Afogatto. It’s simple in nature, really – scoop of vanilla icecream with a shot of espresso coffee. Pour the bitter goodness on the creamy delight, and enjoy a lovely dessert! I also loved the Budino, with its three layers of different tastes. The sweetness of vanilla caffe cream makes way for the caramel, until you start to taste the chocolate cream. Make sure to really dig in and get a bit of each layer in every spoonful!

Drinks

To keep the amazing dishes company, there was the Fab Limonata, a strawberry, basil and orange lemonade with a beautiful freshness. I also had two Italian Milkshakes, the Cookies and Cream and the Classic Tiramisu. both came topped with pyramids of cream! The cookies and cream milkshake was really delicious and had a very gentle taste, while the classic tiramisu was packed with the taste and flavour of coffee. Absolutely amazing!
