Good food!

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.

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
