This restaurant is friendly and with a good atmosphere. Service was great. Food was what you would expect in an Italian restaurant and it was well priced. They had some good deals on alcohol too. Definitely would go back.

Service was disappointing. Food was OK - wasn't thrilled Portions were much smaller than expected. Decor is awesome!

This is only for the family. If you take your spouse here for wedding anniversary or birthday, your relationship may finish quickly, but for the youngsters, Ideal.

This is one of those institutions that left an impression with me when I was a pre-teen. So strong was that impression that I had to bring my little guy to this restaurant so that he could enjoy the experience. The food was great! The prices were reasonable and the service was fast and friendly as you would expect. However,... More

I took my grandchildren and their mother to this restaurant after our trip to the Disney on Ice show. I had the seafood linguine and my ex-daughter-in-law had the Manager's Favourite. The kids had pasta with Alfredo sauce and the pepperoni pizza. The food was delicious and so was the ice cream. Service was excellent and quick. The only problem... More

It is what it is. American style, lots of opportunities for the upsell (hey, did you want to keep the glass that your drink comes in, $2.50??) Fun for the kids, plenty to look at, feels like a barn, packed from 3pm to closing, $15 for spaghetti and meatballs that was heated up and served out. You be the judge.... More

We went to this restaurant on a Saturday evening. We were told a 35-45 minute wait. We waited 30 minutes but it was worth it. The atmosphere is so cool with antique-looking decos and the food was very good. For the price, you get bread, salad, an entree and dessert. The service was good and it was also quick for... More

When my family from UK came over we all visited the Old Spaghetti Factory on recommendation of my son and each and every one of us loved it for all different reasons. As the age gap was from 8 to 65 that speaks volumes due to every palette being quite different. Service was great (and fun) and price was not... More
