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!!

And great food. Love the warm bread and spaghetti with mizithra cheese! It is family friendly, but can get crowded with kid quickly. I would not suggest it for a "romatic" dinner :-)

The building is beautifu and the atmosphere is pleasant. The restaurant was very busy....we had to wait more than thirty minutes on a Monday at 5:45. The three course meal is nice. I had spinach tortellini filled with meat and chees topped with Alfredo sauce. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs. Our salads were okay...not spectacular. mostly just lettuce and... More

Always Loved the italian sodas but now theres a drink topped with cotton candy. Yumm! Get the cheese bread you will be glad you did. The ambiance is excellent with an old trolly car right inside.

I have been coming here for years. The service is always great, the food is wonderful, and I love the beautiful Victorian inspired decor. The only complaint I would have is children running around, I had to step over several children on my way to the restroom once, they were lying outside the restroom on the floor....not sure where the...
