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.

I feel the wife & I was treated very well and the service was out of this world. The pasta and the wine was spot on and the old building was great, in my opinion this is a must visit!!!!!!!

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

Great little Italian restaurant right downtown. The ambiance was nice and our waitress was very friendly and efficient. The menu offers the basic Italian fare as well as several dishes that are exclusive to them. I stepped outside of my comfort zone and, at the recommendation of our waitress, tried one of the signature entrees. It was delicious. I would... More

I lived in Indy for 10 years before moving away. I recently returned to the area on a business trip and was so looking forward to a romantic visit to the Spaghetti Factory. Honestly, the food and service were nothing like I remember. Our waiter was new and seemed overwhelmed. The salad tasted like it came from a bag, and... More
