We stopped in after a visit to the Kentucky Center to see the Lion King. The restaurant was crowded with a 45-60 min wait. To be expected so we put our name in. The very rude, young hostesses took our name and asked for our phone number, never explaining that one is sent a text message when your... read more

I was told to check out this iconic building as it was one of the first electrified buildings in the southern states. Horse-drawn carriages were parked outside and never moved. The restaurant offers a three course meal for a very low price, so expectations were low and they met my expectations. A large birthday party took up too many tables... More

A weekly if not bi-weekly place to eat, and the one place i would get food from on my stops in Louisville, but for past year or so, the food has been sub-standard. The sauce has become over laden with crushed tomatoes, food always seems days old. It is merely a tourist trap now. Although it is still a beautiful... More

I love the location of this Old Spaghetti Factory, it is a beautiful old building and the atmosphere is very cozy. However, the quality of the food is very poor. It used to be much better. For the price you pay for pasta, it rates little above jar sauce you warm up at home. Won't be back.

Yum!!! I am from NYC so we have nothing like this--except if you want to TRY to compare it to Olive Garden and Little Italy! The prices here were just right and the food was MIND blowing!!! The ambiance is warm, inviting and whimsical. We had such a lovely time! We went for my mothers bday and they were able... More

After a long day at a swim meet, my team and I decided to stop by the Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner. The portions are a little bit small for what you pay for, but very tasty.

This downtown Luoisville tradition has good pasta and yummy, yummy bread. The inside is interesting and lively, outside you can catch a ride on a horse and carriage. Positioned centrally in the middle,of town, close to Yum Center and river activities. Great place for kids, there is a train to play in. Tip: seriously...order bread!

The Old Spaghetti Factory is located in downtown Louisville close to then Yum Center and the Convention Center. It is a popular place to eat before events and after earlier ones. The atmosphere is pleasant with a pseudo trolly car. The wait staff is congenial. Then there is the food. The salad bar is adequate mainstream American. The pasta entrees... More
