Gluten Free Goodness

I haven't had tasty pasta sauce in a long time, since most store bought is, well, not restaurant quality. I'm sitting here eating some of the best meat sauce I've ever had. Comfort food, yay! The gluten free pasta tastes just like the regular pasta!

We were here several years ago with a large group to celebrate a birthday. This time there were 5 of us. You get a lot of food - soup or salad, entree, and dessert with each order. No way to delete any of it, it comes that way. Also includes warm bread which we got more of. The kids enjoyed... More

We visited our old home state and city recently for a quick visit. My kids used to love this Old Spaghetti Factory when they were little. Friday night about 6pm and the place was not busy. I was excited to see no wait time. We used to wait an hour or more to eat here. Get to our table to... More

Food was typical Italian. You can get everything from basic spaghetti and meatballs to fancier Italian dishes. Comes with salad/soup, main course as well as dessert. Price was fair and service was good. When you are there take a walk around the restaurant to take in some of the train decor.

let me just get to the one weird observation out of the way first..the rest rooms are in the basement..yes, you read that correctly-the rest rooms are in the basement! Now that we have that off the table, this place is a very nice way to spend an evening out for dinner in the big city. The dishes are great... More

My husband and I come here all the time now, it's our favorite place to go to. The food is really good, service is always great, the value is unbeatable, and the atmosphere is the best. It's a comfortable place with good food, what's not to love?

All meals are 3 courses for the price. That includes a basic salad and a dish of spumoni ice cream. The prices are very reasonable and we had a great dinner for a very good price.

Love, love, love the antique feel of this place! Oh, and the food was good, also. Try the Mizithra Cheese & Browned Butter - very good. I also enjoyed the Clam sauce. Biggest drawback to this restaurant is that the bathrooms are in the basement and must be accessed by a long winding staircase or an elevator. Take the elevator.

Took my extended family (7 of us) for an early dinner. Had not been to this downtown tradition, located in a rather charming old building, for at least 15 years. We were seated promptly and the service was just fine. The pasta was satisfactory and my meat sauce was OK as well. My grandson had spaghetti with meatballs which he... More
