On top of old smokey, all covered with cheese........

This is a solid choice for a good pasta meal. The staff was kind and service was great. It's in an old building with lots of character. Plenty of natural sunlight and very clean.

A girlfriend and I had purchased tickets to see the Lion's King production at the Kentucky Center for the Arts. We decided to have dinner before the event and selected the Spaghetti Factory. Awesome selection! Even though it was a Friday evening, we were seated right away (no reservation). It's a good place for family dining (all kids love spaghetti),... More

The Old Spaghetti Factory will always have a special place in my heart. When I was a kid, I thought it was the fanciest restaurant around. Being in the heart of downtown (where we didn't go very often) and having huge chandeliers, grand staircase, brass handled doors, antique-looking furniture in the waiting area, and a TROLLEY in the dining room...yeah,...

In town for a volleyball tournament, we have a team of 10 hungry girls. Two months in advance, I made reservations for our group of nearly 30 for 7:30 on a Saturday night. We arrived a half hour early as it was very busy downtown with an air and fireworks show going on and loads of people waiting to be... More

Decent Italian. My best friend and I each had pasta. The sauces were decent, maybe a little salty. The bread was good and the house salad with creamy pesto was good, I would have been fine without the pasta. Overall, still not bad, and pretty cheap!

I love that the meal is 3 courses. I had minestrone soup as the first course, which was very good. I had spaghetti for the main course and a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert. The prices are reasonable and the decor is really neat, especially the train car.

Oh my goodness, I experienced my very first cream soda here! It's like a combination shake/soda. The bubbles just make it divine. I am now so wanting this as I write this!!! The wait staff was so nice we went back a 2nd day of our trip here. I had broccoli in a special cheesy sauce and it was also... More

Very little wait on a Friday night. Warm bread was wonderful. Waitress was off her game but the good food made up for it. Would for sure return.
