Description: A meal at The Old Spaghetti Factory is an experience. We invest meticulous attention to our decor so our guests feel as though they're stepping into another world. Every location is adorned with antique lighting, intricate stained glass displays and an old-fashioned trolley car that doubles as a dining hall. Nearly every item on The Old Spaghetti Factory's menu is made on-site, from scratch, using fresh ingredients. Unlike most restaurants, when you order our entrees, we serve you a complete meal, which includes bread, soup or salad, and dessert. And with our famous kid's menu, special treats and fun activities, we encourage families to feel at home in our restaurants. The Old Spaghetti Factory is still family owned and operated and we welcome your family to join ours for a memorable dining experience.

I haven't been in years but my husband and I tried the Old Speghetti Factory for our anniversary dinner and ohhhh sooo yummy. Here is the run down. We had a short wait for the table meaning our buzzer went off 30 seconds after the hostess gave it to us. The restaurant was crowded but the lighting made it cozy.... More

Visited on a Saturday evening, our first time here and it was expected that it was going to be busy. You can not book reservations on a Sat after 5pm so we anticipated a wait for our table. We waited 45 min to be seated for 2 people. Our seating was in a old time caboose/streetcar which was very original.... More

We came here for a special dinner in downtown Toronto. We had come here before and had good meals, But this time was different. When we came we were hurried to a table. Later when the waiter came back for our order, we explained that one of our party had an allergy to soy. He had found a meal he... More

This is somewhere my parents took me as a kid, but I still love going to. The memorabilia on the walls is fun to look at and there's all sorts of interesting seats. The food is good. About $20 for a meal but includes appetizer salad, main and ice cream for desert. Their bread is still good :) love the... More

The decor was very appropriate, well lit and the menu very easy to understand and make a selection that will not be questioned when it arrives to the table. The quality of the food is good for the price that you are paying for the dishes. The salads are fresh and green and crisp, yet the desert choices leave you... More

Went here with my husband. The food is great for what you pay for- although our salad was little brown. I like the full meal deal! Salad, pasta, and dessert!!!! Its a good spot for families! You can sit in cool trolleys and its a fun atmosphere with lots to look at. Service was wonderful!

What I like the most is the interior of the place. It feels like you are in a mini amusement place. Family friendly restaurant, my son loved the train and you can actually get inside of the train. The food is not that great but the staffs are friendly.

Food was good, the atmosphere is the best, especially for kids as it has a real family feel to it but a bit on the pricey side.
