Description: Cheese factory is shop and a cafe with a fine selection of cheese and natural products.The menu has been designed by the Chef Mattia Peloso known to be a former chef the partie’ of the London Novikov Team, with the support Of Ginger Zerbetto, who’s last project has been the now popular Izakaya .The duo created a synergy of passion and experience taking the cheese element to a new level.A combination of flavors that mixed all together reminds how still cheese has a lot to say in terms of emotions and taste.

“Watch the bill!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Food was good, but watch the bill. We were never told that large sparkling water wasn't, included with the lunch special so when they charged us for them we said "I don,t think so". Service was also very poor.

“Decent but overpriced food, nice cheese shop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We stopped at the Cheese Factory for breakfast one morning and as expected (based on location and name) found it to be a bit of a tourist trap. The food is decent, but overpriced. The cheese on the other hand is great and my breakfast came with a great sampling of the cheeses sold at the shop.

“Visit shop; avoid restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The first clue should have been that only 3 tables were occupied and no one had food. Second clue was that it took 10 minutes to get water and a soda.Third clue no one took our food order until we asked. Fourth clue--two patrons, obviously regulars, stepped out on the canal dock, right beside the open window where we were sitting. Fifth clue--one of the smokers flipped butt of half-smoke cigarette to a white swam below. Sixth clue--no food after 50 minutes had passed. Sixth clue--one of our party went to speak to the manager. Seventh clue--manager said they were swamped since we all came in at the same time. Eighth clue--8 more minutes until our two salads arrived.
They were fresh and edible but there was no enjoyment at this stage. No other parties entered the restaurant the entire 75 minutes we were there. Such potential and an excellent site gone to waste because of management.
Again, visit the cheese shop; avoid the restaurant.

“Really nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Food was good, I obviously went for the 4 cheese pizza and it was great. The staff were very friendly and no complaints about waiting times as the food came very quickly. The building itself if nicely decorated and clean.
