I didn't realize this was a chain until I was seated. The bread with garlic butter was pretty good but the salad appeared to have been of the generic iceberg bagged variety smothered in dressing. The mushroom sauce consisted of their marinara garnished with a few sliced sautéed mushrooms. OK but certainly not anything special. The cherry cream soda was... More

This is a moderately priced family friendly restaurant located in downtown phx. An interesting collection of antiques greet you as you enter the restaurant which is located on the west side of central ave in phoenix. Seating includes antique tables and chairs, booths and a trolley which is the central focus of the dinning area. The spaghetti factory is close... More

Spaghetti Factory is a long time favorite of mine. I hadn't been to this one in about ten years, We came in at the tail end of a very long road trip for a funeral and expressed our desire to eat and run so to speak. I wish I knew the servers name because he was awesome. I've never had... More

I hadn't been in years. Though always had great memories of dinners with friends at this national chain. Recently I had been craving their Mizithra Cheese and Burnt Butter Spaghetti. It didn't disappoint. Great place for families and large groups.

A great place to go for a fun meal with your kids or those who are just young at heart. Sit in the trolley car if possible. The food is OK but that's not the main reason to go there.

Went to the Mystery Theater for dinner and mystery 'game'. We were seated with about 8 others we did not know which was interesting as well as the choices of food. None of us would ever order again what we were offered but the game was fun. However, it would have been more fun had it not been SO COLD... More

Another, great Italian place to eat. I'm always amazed at the amount of food we get, whenever I come here. I love the ambiance, the service and the food. We've been coming here, since they opened, thanks to our Daughter. My favorite, is still the lasagna, but I'm not sure there isn't anything I don't like, that's Italian. I have... More

It seems that this place has been around for about 40 years. There have been changes in ownership, but the food and the atmosphere never seems to change. I've always had a preference for the spaghetti and mizithra cheese. Well worth the occasional drive from the 'burbs into central Phoenix for a good spaghetti dinner.

Thank John P
