Went to Indy, and based on destination, we chose The Old Spaghetti Factory. It was an unremarkable meal with an interesting decor.

I had the meat sauce and half butter/cheese pasta. It was decent and the upgraded Malbec went well with the meal. My wife had ravioli and pasta with meat sauce as well. It's a fun place, kind of kitschy and good for families - eat in the trolley. Just don't expect it to be like mama used to make.

No real inspiration in the food, but a place where you can take the kids for a sit down meal at a reasonable price. It is what it is, and that is fine

This restaurant is nice and has its own personality. There are big velvet chairs and a caboose in the middle of the restaurant with tables in it. There is a restaurant just like this in Phoenix, AZ. The food was very good and the price was reasonable.

Not really an Italian restaurant. No Italian beer, no Italian sparkling water, no espresso. Real average at best
