A large group, of which I was a part, ate at the Old Spaghetti Factory on a Friday evening. We had requested a private room but when we arrived we were told they couldn't do that. As it was, the night was slow so the room we were in was private. We were offered a choice of three entrees since... read more

We absolutely loved this place. Sat in the caboose/train car and kids thought it was great. We had great service and the food was so yummy. Fresh warm bread!!!! House dressing is super. Very relaxed atmosphere. Wonderful surprise! Would definitely go back.

This locale made me want to relax and enjoy the moment. The food was delicious, and the portion sizes were impressive. The antique (a ton of beautiful woodwork) decor is warm and comfortable, and the made me feel like taking out time to savor both the food and conversation.

We arrived Sunday right at noon, the place was packed but they got us right in. Our server was excellent. The food was delicious as usual. We have always had a great meal here. We highly recommend it.

I have been going to the SF for ages. I have also been there twice on a school field trip! It is a restaurant that I always recommend to my family and friends that live out of state. The service can be slow, but if you aren't in a rush, I would totally recommend!

We had dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory before a Neil Diamond concert in Indianapolis. Wow, want a great choice. Even though downtown Indy was VERY busy due to the concert, we waited only about 5 to 10 minutes to be seated. Our server came very quickly and we told her we had an 8 pm concert. She said she...

Good pasta, lots of choices for the kids. The portions were very good and come with several courses including desert. we were pleasently surprised when we got the bill, as we hadn't really paid close attention to how much our meals were before ordering. The only negative to our experience was that when we arrived the hostess looked at us... More

I eat out a lot, and our server was one of the best I have even had with her attention to detail, pleasantness, and taking care of our table. A very busy Saturday night, with wait an hour - but - we were all over 21 and could sit in the upstairs bar right away. The house salad lacks, as... More
