Yet Another Good Visit to the Old Spaghetti Works!

I have eaten here many, many times. The atmosphere, service, salad bar, and food keep me coming back. This last visit was as good as the others I have had. This place is a good value for the money. Also, if you are downtown with a big group, this place is huge and is able to accommodate large... read more

Don't go here if you want an "Italian" dinner. It is not typical authentic Italian it is bland run of the mill for people with children or those who like fast food in a nice environment. Prices are reasonable.

Located in the old market, they have good pizza and salad bar.Great place to just sit, relax and enjoy a good meal.Service is excellent:waitresses keep coming by to see if you need anything else. We go there often.

Everything our group ordered got rave reviews. The salad bar was fresh and well stocked. The only problem was the waiter was confused aboit our bread choice ( you choose between garlic bread or italian loaf) and ended up accidentally charging us extra for it, but I think he was new and corrected it as soon as we pointed it...

Really liked this place in downtown Omaha. Ordered spaghetti with meatballs, an Italian sausage, a trip to the salad bar and garlic toast. There was so much food, I nearly didn't finish it. Everything was great as well as inexpensive. My only negative critique would be that they could put on a little more sauce for such a huge pile... More

The food is pretty average, nothing spectacular. It should not take 40 minutes to slap some average spaghetti and sauce on a plate and serve it up for $12. With our 20 minute wait to be seated, 40 minute wait for food and additional time to eat, we would have spent well over two hours in the restaurant. Our waitress... More

Spaghetti Works has been in the Old Market for decades. The food is OK but the place is very family friendly and inexpensive. During the summer they offer outdoor seating which we really enjoy. You can enjoy the Old Market with the family and not have to dump a load of money on dinner and they are very accommodating to... More

My husband and I were visiting Omaha for our anniversary, and we had heard about this restaurant and decided to give it a try. The whole place had a fun atmosphere, with vintage signs and decorations. We ended up ordering the endless spaghetti, which was okay. Nothing that was mind-blowing, but delicious nonetheless, and since it's unlimited you can try... More
