My wife and I ate lunch at this place last Memorial day weekend. When we arrived, there was no greeter there to welcome us, she was busy talking to another employee. After about 4 minutes, she showed up, and offered us a table (sans apology for us having to wait for her). That wasn't too awful bad, but clearly, there... More

The Old Spaghetti Factory used to be great when they were located in downtown Fresno. The quality has gone downhill...If we want good Italian food we go to Andiamo's in Clovis.

My family was introduced to our first Old Spaghetti Factory in the 70's in Spokane, WA on a trip. We've visited several locations over the years and they are always yummy and always a great value and fun time. We all get the same thing, over and over. My favorite is the spaghetti with Mizithra cheese, a side of mushroom... More

This is the ultimate family eating place.....very family friendly....nice old (BIG) picture of old Fresno on the walls.... In fact couple years ago we took the wedding practice bunch there for dinner. We love OSF....staff is very friendly....affordably priced ...great meal. Highly recommended just allow extra time tobe seated on week ends!!

The food is always consistent and for the price, you can't go wrong. Great atmosphere. Simple food but that's what I like about it. They have plenty of room for large parties. The meal is all inclusive which means, choice of soup or salad, hot bread, main course, choice of drink and ice cream for dessert.

When we were kids we went to the Old Spaghetti Factory when they were located in Downtown Fresno ...they moved to Shaw Avenue. We still go there....its a very affordable place for couples and families. The food is great. Service is excellent. We love the spumoni ice cream desert.

I give this 3 stars because of the food and service together, the food is nothing really special or out of the ordinary, it's pretty average, the service for some reason always seems to be slow, there is a way to be a good server and another to just be there for the hours, so all together it comes to...
