OSF did a great job hosting a large group of 65. The room was prepared and ready for us and the service was excellent. The room is noisy and does not provide a good environment for a speech/presentation. We did so, but it was challenging. I would recommend the Riverside OSF for a large group meal, especially if your event... More

We use to enjoy the Spaghetti Factory for our Family night out. The service was good and the food was fine. The place was always busy so, you went in knowing there would be a wait. But, after a while it seemed if your party was small, the service was bad. If you had a big party you got better... More

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
