So so

My memories of the food here are far better than the meal was on this last visit. I don't remember the menu being so small, and I just was not impressed.

My wife loves this place. I'm a little less enthused about the food, but still find the experience enjoyable. During our most-recent visit, our server Mary displayed an uncanny ability to anticipate needs. The grade of five for service is for her performance; on some of our other trips the staff has been closer to adequate than excellent. The building... More

So this place was so cute!!!! There's a trolly in the restraunt and you can sit in it for dining! The decor was just so fun!! The service was great. Our waiter was Andrew and he was spot on with everything!! The food was a bit of a disappointment. The bread was good but our calamari app was not the... More

Great old building restored and filled with period pieces ~ even an old streetcar that the kids loved. Three generations had dinner after a long afternoon walking the sports show at the convention center. The restaurant was noisy and with lots of children, which was a perfect fit for our group. Service was good. Lots of napkins were delivered after... More

We liked our food and dessert was amazing! We made a reservation and highly recommend the same to others as it is a very popular place and the wait can be long!

Today I finally had the opportunity to have a meal at The Old Spaghetti Factory. I had always wanted to try it, and today was the day, it didn't disappoint. The old warehouse turned restaurant is a perfect atmosphere. Our server was very attentive, and friendly. Our food was excellent. I was also very impressed with the pricing. I felt... More

The lasagna was very good, as was the shrimp and spinach artichoke app. Server was super friendly. They did get confused on the order of service. This would not have been a challenge if it had not happened three times. The server was not sure what the desserts were. He had the list, but he had not tasted some of... More

The noise from the video game room detracted from the great food and ambience of the old building. We will not be back.

We discovered The Old Spaghetti Factory in Denver, so when we found this one we knew we were eating there. Great atmosphere. It's located in an old J.I. Case factory so it is an old and beautifully restored building filled with old pictures and antiques. My husband is strictly a spaghetti and meat sauce guy but I tried the Spinach... More

We were guests at a group dinner in the private dining room. Clearly there were not enough servers assigned and service was slow and poor. I don't blame the servers, who were trying, but there were not enough of them. The food was tasty.
