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.

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 hadn't been to this location of The Old Spaghetti in about 8 years. Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, but I have to say, I was disappointed. I remember how wonderful this place used to be, but it's not the same anymore. The atmosphere was good and our server was excellent. We kept him hopping with a party of... More

If you love pasta this is the place to go. They have a wide verity of dishes. The place is interesting with a railroad motif. The service was good and the food even better. They serve a complete dinner. Warm bread, soup or salad, entrée and dessert for around $14.00. There seem to be a lot of parties going on.... More

For being a restaurant chain ..the restaurant is somewhat impressive... The Lemon Drop Martinis definitely have a kick! Great selection of appetizers! First,the garden salad served was truly fresh! Chicken Parmesan, served hot with flair. Second, a small side dish of spaghetti complimented the entree. Dessert 🍨 will wait till next time.

So, maybe you should ask if the shrimp or ravioli is frozen before you order it, because I believe it is and the shrimp taste like rubber. the ravioli on the other hand was dry around the edges and barely cooked through. The nice thing is, is that they come with your choice of drink and you get spumoni at... More

Interior is very beautiful and the service was very friendly. Food is average and long waits for a Sunday afternoon. Very reasonably priced.

They told us the wait was 1hour. Our table was ready in 30 minutes. And they served us reasonably priced drinks until then. I mean where else do you get 4 dollar stone draft in prime time? Pasta portions were a little small, especially the kids meals but when they hold their prices below 10 dollars for some pastas its... More

Stopped in for lunch with a friend, and we had meals off of their lunch menu. They tell you that the portion sizes are smaller than the dinner menu, but it didn't seem like they were much smaller to me. We did not leave hungry. Our server (Kristin) was great, and right on top of our every need.
