A great find in Fresno

We unexpectedly found ourselves in a hotel in Fresno, because our booking at Cedar Grove was cancelled, thanks to the Rough fire. I turned to TA and this was just across the road from our hotel. It was as good as the reviews I read said it was - nice place, good service, three courses for the... read more

Old Spaghetti Factory Fresno, Ca, 2/3/16 Today after a family funeral 22 of us got together for lunch. We did not plan ahead and make reservations. When we showed up they told us that was not a problem and they took us right in. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were right there for anything we needed. Thanks... More

Waitress was on the ball, fast accurate. All our meals, each one different were absolutely outstanding. Pastas were perfect, al dented to a tee! Bread was hot... More

I think the only difference between this place and the Olive Garden is the decor. I hadn't been in years, and now I know why. Oversalted and limp pasta, salad that looked as if was out way too long, and service that was intrusive while not addressing any of the problems we had with our meal. Okay for a big... More

This has always been a favorite off mine and my family as Errol. My grandson loved it. He lives to sit in the train to eat. Great atmosphere, service and good. The mazithera and browned butter is a must try.I give five stars

Our entire family all gathered for my Father in-law's birthday. The ice tea was perfect we never had a dry glass, the food was very good. We had so much that we had to get doggie bags. The next day the food was just as good. I really wish I was able to get the name of the servers. We... More

We set out to look for a couple of other places, but they were either closed or didn't seem to exist! We happened across this place and were pleasantly surprised. Really cool decor with a life sized tram in the middle! Food was lovely and good size portions, would highly recommend the orange milkshake. I think all the staff have... More

We were in town for a water polo tournament with a bunch of teen and preteen boys who had just spent 9 hours at a tournament so they were HUNGRY. The decor was wonderful, the service was wonderful, the food was wonderful! Everyone was happy and when you are talking 20 people, thats something! Cant wait to go back. Seriously!

We traveled from the hotel to find this location. Our service was good and the food very good. Being a Tuesday night, was not too busy. Décor was nice and clean. Food was served hot and fast.
