“Good place to lunch - good food, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Just visited this restaurant - we went for lunch with friends and a small child (16 months). The service was excellent - the waiter went out of his way to set up a child seat for us. Its a nice relaxed atmosphere, and the food was very good. We chose the spaghetti and salad options and it was very tasty, so all round a nice experience. I would say the price was also reasonable for Geneva - you've got to be realistic in this town when it comes to cost! Overall we had a lovely Sunday afternoon. I've read some of the recent reviews and really can't agree. I'd say give it a try.

“Pretty poor food - but nice location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

Went there with my girlfriend. We were sitting outside and ordered a pizza and spaghetti. The food was pretty poor - worst 'Italian' food I can remember in quite a while. Pizza half burned, half soggy. Spaghetti overcooked and sauce not very tasty. Service was pretty poor as well, we had to wait forever for first course (they probably forgot the order until we reminded them) and then ask aeveral times for the bill.

Only positive thing is that the location is nice (at least outside) and that prices are OK for Geneva. However there are far better pasta/pizza places in Geneva, even for similiar price (e.g. Nespresso Club and nopizza).

I live in Geneva, but definitely first and last time I eat at Spaghetti Factory.

“Nothing too fancy, nice location though”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Did not enjoy the pasta as much as expected. The place is called the Spaghetti factory so had a bit higher expectation. We tried the carbonara, the white sauce was not that good. But so as not to judge the whole menu, just skip the carbonara if you like your white sauce rich dense and creamy. A bit pricy too.

“A factory for sphagetti”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Sphagetti and more spaghetti. Prices aren't cheap, spaghetti ain't all that great, but service is typically fast and you generally can't complain about the portions. Also situated at the edge of the old town, above a lovely courtyard with some character. Visit, taste, and form your own opinion :-) It does have its following...
