I have been several times and the service and food are very good. They can accommodate large groups also. They do have some gluten free options. There hearty portion is enough for a couple to share.

Reasonable prices and very good pasta. The architecture is really nice and the restaurant was clean. The only real downside was that the bathroom is down 3 flights of stairs. I imagine there is an elevator, but I did not see it myself. Will definitely eat here again.

What a turnaround! We went to this restaurant several years ago and were very disappointed. We decided to give it another chance, and WOW. What a great improvement! The place was immaculate, service and food were great, and for the price you just can't beat The Old Spag Fac. I always visit them when I'm in a city that has... More

Went here for an evening meal with a colleague, really great value for money but the food and service were only average. Nice experience and setting, the food was okay and the service not so good, felt rushed, we had to ask for stuff a few times, like a spoon and the waitress didn't really know how to open a... More

Service was pretty good. Prices were good. Food was okey but nothing special. Very much like sauce from a jar and frozen meatballs. Think Stouffer's frozen meals.

We LOVE The Old Spaghetti Factory. Spaghetti and Meatballs were great but one person in our group had a piece of meat that was too tough to eat. We told the server and he really made no apology. Service wasn't as good as usual--but maybe it was busier than it seemed. We have always had great service in the past.... More

Delicious food, lasagne and spaghetti. Salads and soup delivered first. I was not even halfway through my soup before the entrees were delivered. The server made some remark about the kitchen really being fast this evening but I knew that 'table turnover' was the name of the game. We had to find the server to ask for more bread. It... More

We were very happy with our food! There were four of us and everyone liked what they got! We originally got sat at a table that was in the flow of traffic so we asked for another table. The next table was right by.the entrance to the kitchen that has no door. We heard the clanging of dishes and the... More
