About
A meal at The Old Spaghetti Factory is an experience. We invest meticulous attention to our decor so our guests feel as though they're stepping into another world. Every location is adorned with antique lighting, intricate stained glass displays and an old-fashioned trolley car that doubles as a dining hall. Nearly every item on The Old Spaghetti Factory's menu is made on-site, from scratch, using fresh ingredients. Unlike most restaurants, when you order our entrees, we serve you a complete meal, which includes bread, soup or salad, and dessert. And with our famous kid's menu, special treats and fun activities, we encourage families to feel at home in our restaurants. The Old Spaghetti Factory

We ordered lasagna and spaghetti and meatballs. Everything about the meal except the spumoni was very average and disappointing...the salad, the Italian dressing, the bread, the butter, the lasagna (was OK but not great...not cheesy enough), the spaghetti and meatballs (the meatballs had very little...More

Some parts were great. The food was decent. The service was strange. The staff seemed untrained. Maybe it was an off day or new people but we encountered 3 staff that seemed lost.More

You come here for the experience, and get good food in the meantime. Walking around this restaurant is a experience in itself. We sat in an old train car and looking around the whole time at the different elements was worth it to us. The...More

Hi! My wife is a vegetarian and she always chooses between two dishes - the Goat Cheese Agnolotti, and the Factory Ravioli. She is never disappointed.

I'm vegetarian, and I always get the cheese tortellini. The sauce is on the blander side, but I'm never disappointed. The manicotti is also good!
