Great Italian food that I remember from childhood.

The Old Spaghetti Factory is a Louisville favorite. Each meal comes with soup or salad, bread and desert. The creamy pesto dressing was really good. I had the combination of lasagna and chicken picatta. The lasagna was flavorful and really reminded me of restaurants visited in my childhood... read more

A beautiful historic old building, the Old Spaghetti Factory is worth the visit just for the atmosphere. The service was prompt and relativity attentive. The food looked and smelled good I totally forgot to snap any pictures! Enjoy!

I went as part of a school group of about thirty and the service was still fast and friendly. The setting is beautifully antique and the food is excellent. I loved their bread and ice cream and enjoyed the Fettuccine Alfredo.

Our New Year’s Eve experience started with a bourbon bar, early, with our reservations at the Old Spaghetti Factory not until 8pm. After realizing we couldn’t drink bourbon for 3 hours before dinner, we went an hour early in the hopes we could get in…the place was packed with happy people and the smell of garlic parmesan! How could we... More

If you are in Downtown Louisville and love Italian, this is the place to go. Very Romantic. A beautiful place to take a date for a lovely night of pasta.

It's been a few years since we've been in the area, so it was nice to come back. Staff was ready to hold the door for us coming in and we had just gotten there before a rush. Great selection. Entrees include bread, soup, or salad as well as an ice cream dessert. Everything was delicious and we were happy... More

We had a business luncheon and I was looking forward to it remembering how good the food was. Well, everyone at the table was disappointed at how bland the food was. The only thing we all like was the ice cream.

I and my family have eaten there several time and we love it! The restaurant itself is unique and we always make a point of going around the Christmas holidays also because of the decorations. So beautiful!

While at a conference we needed to grab a meal quite late in the evening. Most of the restaurants were already closed, and we didn't feel like sitting down anywhere. We called OSF and placed a take out order, and it was fantastic. They did not cut out any of the meal, so we each got our entree, soup, bread,... More
