Nice evening out

I took my wife out for a getaway. We really enjoyed the Old Spaghetti Factory. Building is historical and unique. Prices were great as was the service.

My husband begged me not to lick the bowl after I finished the Olive Tapenade, I did not leave one droplet of broth of the Minestrone soup and if it couldn't get any better it did with a fantastic entree of spaghetti topped with fresh mushrooms. I was very pleased with how vegetarian friendly the menu is. My husband and... More

our small group bible study group stopped at the spaghetti factory after serving lunch for the homeless at Roberts park UMC. We decided on SF and stopped at 1:30. We ended up waiting over 15 min, to have a table set up, despite the fact that they were not busy( there were 3-4 staff at the greeting station- doing what?)... More

One of my favorite restaurants! Relaxed atmosphere. 3 course meal + drink for less than most of it chain competitors. If you have never tried it, the clam sauce is delish! Family friendly. The servers have always been polite in the 7 years I've been going to this location! Try to go at an "off" time, or you could have... More

The chandeliers & furniture are entertaining as well as the atmosphere. Sitting in the street car trolley is fun for kids. We love the garlic mizithra. The ice cream at the end of the meal was perfect in the cold tin cup. Waitress was excellent.

The night of our visit was pretty busy. To make the matter worse they let people waiting for seats to stand over our dining table in order to speed us up. They even brought out our desert while we were only 1/2 way through dinner. Food was not bad though, Just go on a slow night.

I loved the feel of this restaurant. When we came in, we were in a bit of a pinch. We let the waitress know and wow... they really performed well. They got everything to us quickly and took care of our group of 6 very well. The food was good and the decor was very fun. Great find.

We ate here because it was across the street from the hotel. We split a meal because we weren't real hungry. The food was good-different sauce-we had lasagna-but good. The minestrone soup was ok, not great. The ice cream was good. Our server was friendly and the ambience of the restaurant was nice.
