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.

Pretty lame. Had a company event there - about 60 people in their large private dining room in the back. They were unprepared when we got there - the three dedicated servers seemed to have just arrived and scrambled to get tables slid together, their mish-mash of chairs distributed and places set, our specific instructions on how we wanted it...

Arrived Sunday at 5pm for dinner...was told it would be 30 minute wait - there were 6 additional families waiting. Once seated, clearly half the dining room was vacant. It appeared that it was very close to being shut down or just very understaffed. Calamari was very good. Salads were not - watery and old. Soup was warm and not... More

My daughter and I stopped here for dinner during our trip to Minneapolis. We split a meal and it was plenty of food for both of us. The inside is really unique and the service was excellent. Would definitely go back again and recommend.

We came with 6 hungry kids and 4 hungry adults and everyone was satisfied. It's an experience everyone should have. The food is filling and plentiful, and the bread is yum. Beautiful building just like in most cities. The history of the restaurant is sweet and we like to support that nostalgic idea.

You do get a lot of food for the value and we've been to the other Old Spaghetti Factories in Indianapolis and St Louis however this one seemed flat. Salad tasted like a pre-packaged salad from a grocery store and the ice cream was no better than store bought. The pasta and lasagna were very good. Not lights out but... More
