It had been awhile since we had visited the Old Spaghetti factory; and we were not disappointed. We had a party of over 20, and this didn't deter our waiter from giving us excellent service. The quality of the food still remains there mainstay though; with even there basic spaghetti was outstanding. Definitely recommended to anyone.

the "show " included too many guests. they didn't know what to do. the food was ok. choices included spicy, veg, or meat tornillini (no meat to be seen) the gold tickets were a waste. unless you thought paying $30. for pictures was a deal. no special seating or anything else.

The only thing The Old Spaghetti Factory can boast of us the décor and the name. Nowadays it’s a total mess. The spaghetti sauce taste like ketchup and the lasagna, a horse perhaps wouldn’t touch it. The service is embarrassing and I’ve been trying to show my Chinese wife how great customer service here in America is compared to Beijing.... More

I use to think the old spaghetti factory was that tastey authentic place to go for a treat, deals are great for families!! And service is nice depending on how busy they are. Is it my favorite place now? No, I would rather go to a ma and pa restaurant or search trio advisor for Italian near by . They... More

Came over with family & friends (party of 20) to celebrate my son's College Graduation. Our server "Dants", (I hope I'm spelling out his name right, made sure we all had a great experience.

This is a pretty good place to go with a diverse group. Everyone will find something they like. The spaghetti is great & it hasn't changed in years. Salads are good, bread is good & the drinks are good.

Here you really cant go wrong great place to visit let alone eat. First time at this resturant but glad I went. Great atmosphere friendly staff and it was only about 10 minute wait. Was seated by a nice young lady. Our waiter was great was really packed so food was a bit slow coming. My food was very good... More

Mizithra was good as was the sourdough bread but the chicken Marsala was a cheap, small piece of chicken with dark brown sauce - thats it 😝 Lasagna was made with "no cook" lasagna noodles and was totally mushy 😝 Our waitress kept us waiting for butter for our bread and we must have waited 10 or more minutes before...

A couple of weeks ago I decided to take my significant other to dinner and dropped into the Old Spaghetti Factory. Haven't been there in years. To my utter surprise the odor permeating the place was just awful. Last night a friend made the same comment. Unlike us, he'd paid in advance to attend a comedy fund raiser and no... More

Good food, great value, reasonable prices and good menu choice. Service is always good, and large old packing house restaurant lends a lot of ambience yet casual for family dining. A great deal, fun and historical setting all in one!! My kids pick this for their birthday and award dinner choice!!!
