Out of all the restaurants in the downtown area we ended up at this one because our daughter pronounced she wanted pasta and nothing too fancy. We had a nice meal, very typical of the Old Spaghetti factory we have visited in another city. The service was very good. The old building is impressive. Overall it was a very nice... More

Food was tasty, and the service was outstanding. I'm not a huge fan italian, but was still impressed with the food at the Old Spaghetti Factory.

Food is tasty and portion sizes are decent. The decor of the restaurant was fun, a little dark in parts, but mostly comfortable. Very convenient location, especially if heading to a play at the Guthrie theater afterwards. Staff is very friendly.

The building this restaurant was in was beautiful and the restaurant seemed popular with alot of families going in. We did not expect fine dining but were disapointed that our order appeared to get lost and held up more than once. The manager apologized and comped the dinner and appetizer, but I still would not go back.

Ended here just because of proximity to 4th of July fireworks but can of Ragu over spaghetti would have been better than this, don't waste your money here, not worth it.

We wandered into the restaurant and the first thing that we noticed was the SMELL! Very old antique/bookstore smell. Its a very old building with old furniture and lots of wood (which I found charming). The smell bothered several people in my party. I got used to it. We waited for awhile before our waitress showed up to the table.... More

Usually a great place to eat. drove 2 hours just to have the waitress ignore us for almost an hour. If you want good food and fast service go to Sawatdee a half block down

We have eaten at several different The Old Spaghetti Factory's over the years and have always enjoyed it. However I was very disappointed in the service at this one. We had to wait over 10 minutes to be seated not because of a line but because there was no one working up front to seat people, I had to go... More

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.
