I was in Riverside for a conference and one of my colleagues knew the area better than I did and suggested there was an Old Spaghetti Factory near the convention center. So instead of attending the conference evening reception, we skipped it and had a great time at this Old Spaghetti Factory. Since it was a Thursday night and a... More

Took the family before going to the Mission inn Light display. Got there at 6 p.m. and the six of us were seated immediately. Very good and helpful service. I noticed the menu had changed since last visiting. More great choices. Food was excellent.

Each time we are in Southern California, this is a MUST restaurant. The menu has lots of pasta options. My favorite is the Manager's Special...always have the marinara sauce and mizithra cheese with butter. Most meals include salad or soup, entree and spumoni or vanilla ice cream. Great for large groups!

The restaurant is decorated superbly. There is even a railroad car inside the restaurant that you can sit in and eat. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The bathrooms were immaculate and clean. The food was good but not special. The spaghetti sauce was very generic in taste. The bread was very good as were the salads. There is... More

What can I say... It's the Spaghetti Factory. Always pleasant and a good value. Affordable for large groups and good for kids.

I came here with a big group of people and we sat in the trolley car. We arrived within 15 minutes of their opening so it was pretty empty. Our waiter was really sweet and really attentive to our group with the different orders and requests. I tried something new this time and I had the meat lover's plate. Your... More

Show and actors were very good. 100% interactive. Show was fun. Great encouragement to participate. Good clarity. Service was disorganized and so poor.. Tortellini and alfredo was likey Borella packed with zero spices.. warm baked bread was perfect. Angel hair and spaghetti over cooked, served with one modest scoop of your sauce choice.

"O.K". Well this could be good or bad but in my circumstances it in the "Medium-Range". For starters it was a very pretty atmosphere and also exquisitely classy and the waitress was very nice because she always ended a sentence with "Sure My Love!", very polite. Downside though, the menu was based on FORCING you to get the 3 course... More
