The prices are okay, but we do not prefer this restaurant for good Italian food. What is fun however is after dinner, go out back and watch the trains come and go... read more

Don't go to the bathroom. You might not find your way back to your table! The food is very average Italian. For 2 people, no drinks, $35. is a lot of money even if spumoni comes with the dinner...

We had dinner with a group of 6 of us and while the place was very very busy we had been quoted 50 min but the got us seated with in 20-25 min.

This is the Corona Location. First I did not eat here, explanation follows for the reason of this evaluation. I went to the Amtrak station and had driven a long way and needed the restroom. The stations restroom was closed for some reason. I had spotted the OSF on a previous trip and went to use there restrooms. When I... More

I don’t know where to start… I can make this review a lot shorter by just saying that everything was great. Nothing was bad. Excellent experience with both the customer service and the food. Also, the prices are very reasonable. I will be back again. My only complaint is that there’s no spaghetti factory in my hometown, Los Angeles.

Okay, it's always crowded, the portions have gotten smaller and the price has risen, it's still basically the same restaurant I've been going to for 35 years (including the Newport Beach location). That's good enough for me; I'll always come here.

We had a party of 20 for the day after my son's wedding to get the families together. We arrived at 4:30 for our reservation and were told that it would be 15-20 minutes for our table. I asked for a manager as we had some that needed to get to the airport, and that's the reason we made the... More

I would usually give an Old Spaghetti Factory a three-star rating, but this one is located at the Fullerton Train Station and has a certain ambience most others lack. It is right at the station. When you are seated at that side of the restaurant, you can feel the trains as they rumble past and blow their whistles. if you... More
