The Old Spaghetti Factory in Riverside was able to accommodate our 20 person family luncheon following a graveside service at the Riverside National Cemetery. They gave us a large private room which allowed us plenty of space. The lunch menu is varied and meet everyone's tastes, including vegetarian. The Spumoni ice cream was a special treat to end our lunch.... More

It was interesting, I realized that I overlooked and underestimated certain Italian dishes until I tried them from this restaurant. The quality was great, the prices fair, while the decor was truly fantastic, featuring different old cars. I think this might also be the most popular restaurant with kids, because they seemed to enjoy playing with the cars so much.... More

It was great to make reservations on such a busy day! We LOVE this restaurant, especially the creamy pesto salad dressing, garlic butter for the bread and of course the Spumoni ice cream. One thing to avoid is the Cotton Candy kids lemonade, although the presentation is adorable, both my 5 and 10 year old hated the drink. But the... More

We purchased a groupon for a murder mystery dinner held here. The entertainment was good. The service was great and the staff was friendly

My family enjoys going to this location and has for years. I believe it has been renovated recently and it looks great. My favorite is salad with the house pesto dressing and the Mizithra pasta. Yum!! Lunch is out favorite time to go as it's a good portion side, especially with the bread, and it's cheaper than dinner.

The Spaghetti Factory is an eclectic place and a great dining experience. Our dinner came with bread, soup or salad, an entrée and desert. Our waiter was attentive and conversed with us asking about our trip and where we were from. He was incredibly pleasant. The three of us that went were very happy with our food. I ordered a... More

The Spaghetti Factory is a nice class act if you want a cheap complete pasta meal. Better atmosphere than you would expect. The food is tastey, served hot, and you get a complete meal from salad to dessert for one low price. Great family place.

We enjoy the Old Spaghetti Factory. The food isn't what you would call superb but its tasty, light and delicious. Family friendly, efficient and fast service and the food is out.

Riverside is known for The Mission Inn located in the downtown area. The Spagetti Factory is exactly what you expect. Great Italian food, affordable, and good service. You do have the city lights and the option of walking to the shops or sightseeing on the downtown trolley. If you are in Historic Riverside, Calif, you will not be disappointed with... More
