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.

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...

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

The Factory has been downtown for a long time. Great location and the food is always good. The lunch special is a great deal.

We had a team dinner while in town for a sporting event at the OSF. The service was super - quick, efficient - just what a group of hungry families were needing. We also appreciate the flexibility on our scheduling since we needed to tweak our start time - not a single issue in doing so. Hope to see you... More

Located in an old downtown building, I liked the atmosphere here. The food was good (I'm not sure how you mess up pasta though), and you get a free dessert with your meal!
