This place is good. Nothing special. Good lunch specials. The only thing I don't like is the smell of this building. I'm sure it's because it's a very old building though.

The Spaghetti Factory is always a favorite of family and friends who don't need trendy 'gourmet Italian food' atmosphere or expensive wines to consider it as fine dining. Actually this restaurant maintains a good balance of interesting decor, kid-friendliness, a decent menu and low prices. I don't think anyone but the fussiest will be totally disappointed. Our group of 10... More

Our family of six ate dinner at this restaurant on December 21, 2014. This was a busy evening as the Festival of Lights was going on in downtown Riverside. We waited about 30 minutes for a table. Service was good and food was tasty. Three of us shared a bottle of wine - Chianti Classico - which was reasonably priced... More

We went with a group and had reservations and had to still wait 45 minutes. The food was served cold and was so so. The only good thing about the visit was the waiter who had a great sense of humor. For a first time visitor is wasn't the best experience....

Went with a group and had a reservation and still had to wait a long time to be seated. I had to ask for a refill twice, we had to send back cold spaghetti. The place is over priced and not worth it.

One of the things I love about this place is the prices. Any meal coems with salad, bread (mmmm with garlic butter), coffee or tea and scoop of ice cream. The spaghetties are also VERy good. I like the meat sauce and mizithra mixed together. So good!! Sometimes teh service can be poor, and sometimes the wait can be long.... More

Once upon a time this place could be described as average at best. Now it's deteriorated to just lousy. From the stinky sewer odor that hits you as you walk through the door, the long wait to be seated, to the poor service. This place offers really below average food for an above average price. Coming here for Italian food... More

Another go to restaurant where you can't go wrong. We've met our best friends there for 4th of July dinner for years before going to see fireworks at Riverside Stadium. Big and noisy and fun, with lots of different types of spaghetti. My favorite is the Manager's Special...two different kinds of spaghetti. I usually get the mushroom sauce and my... More

My husband & I loved this location for a Murder Mystery Dinner. This location is Spaghetti Factory @ it's best!!! The restaurant is actually a historic building site. We had vegetarian spaghetti & a generous amount of delicious cheese bread! The servers were very attentive/ our group was 150 guests!!! We won for the best dressed 50's couple!!
