Good Food

Only a few blocks away from the hotel, so we walked. The food was good with fast service, but the restaurant building itself was gorgeous. May be hard if you have a picky eater, but the pasta was excellent.

Anytime I'm in Louisville I always come here! The food is wonderful and you get a lot for your money. Bread, soup/salad and dessert is included in the price. The decor/building is gorgeous too!

12 of us went for dinner and lots of things not well. Drinks were great, enjoyed the non alcholic Italian Cream Soda and loved that I got a free glass to bring home. Asked for ranch dressing on salad and was not told it would be pesto ranch. 6 of us had this. On the orders of chicken alfredo with... More

Unlike our experiences in other city's Spaghetti Factory restaurants, the two experiences we had (both with reservations) at the downtown Louisville SF restaurant left negative memories based on very slow service both times. We don't blame it on the servers themselves, they were good, but the overall time to get drinks, food & bill processing was very slow. So if... More

Have gone to one of these many years ago and was very excited to stumble upon this while on a trip. Not disappointed at all. Exactly as I remembered when I was a child. Reasonable prices and good food!

Whenever I happen to be in downtown Louisville I try to stop here. The food is very good and the prices won't break you, but what I really go for is the atmosphere. It is just a fun place to eat with classic chandeliers and trains. Really neat!

Had dinner here. The food was good and reasonably priced. Portions were not huge but were big enough. Service was a little slow but it was a very busy night and the service was friendly and competent.

I didn't know of the Old Spaghetti Factory until I saw it on a recent stay in Louisville, KY. I was curious about this restaurant so I tried it for dinner. The waitress, Judy, recommended their current promotion, the gnocchis. For sure they are no italian gnocchis, but for an italian american restaurant they were quite good. The minestrone soup...

We got there as they opened, and they were slammed due to the next morning's full and half marathons. Our waitress had six tables but did a good job of juggling the food and drink orders. There was more than enough to eat. Nice atmosphere.
