It's been a long time since we ate at one of their locations. We were in town and wanted a place to meet our son for lunch. Their meals include a generous salad and bread. I had the spaghetti, my wife had the cheese pasta and my son had the penne pesto. All three were fantastic. Prices are more than... More

We arrived at the Amtrak station to take the Southwest Chief to Chicago - time to kill, but not enough for a meal. There are very few eateries in the area, and we stopped here for a drink. Wonderful surprise! Very beautiful building with a physically very impressive bar area. We had drinks and appetizers- could of used a larger... More

My rating closely tracks the median of reviews. It has predictable Pastas,priced reasonably, in a thematically interesting orange packing house. For families, service clubs, and small groups it works well, complete with proximity to downtown attractions and ample parking. When I last went it was packed, ( pun intended).

It was packed, but had adequate seating for our wait. Great price for the quantity and quality of food. Nice, but busy and loud enough on a Friday night that I didn't feel overwhelmed with my two little ones under 3yrs old and didn't get any stink face from other diners.

Was in town for a show and needed to have dinner before the show. The restaurant was busy (as most Spaghetti Factories are) but efficient. We were seated immediately and were eating garlic cheesy bread in no time! The spaghetti with mizithra cheese is a savory choice for cheese lovers. Quick and satisfying all around

Mt first visit ever to an old spaghetti factory. Inside is very impressive. Wow. Swanky. Ordered the lasagna with a salad. For my drink I got the cotton candy limeade. Very good and comes with real cotton candy. Salad was basic and could be fresher. Lasagna and bread were delicious. The supomoni ice cream was the best. Not very attentive... More

I believe this was my third time for lunch at The Old Spaghetti Factory. It is consistently good, especially the service. I had a BLT salad that was quite good. My business associate had pasta with the day's special sauce that he said was unusual but good. A nice quiet place to talk and quick service for those who had... More

Atmosphere is really relaxing. It's usually busy with a short waiting list. But the food makes it worth while. Good service and the food is really good, and affordable.

The food is tasty...don't know how authentic it is, but I like it. The house pesto dressing is delicious! Warm fresh bread with garlic butter is your free appetizer, and your meal wraps up with a scoop of spumoni ice cream.

After my favorite Old Spaghetti Factory closed down in Los Angeles, I was so excited they are still around. This will ALWAYS be my favorite restaurant, with the themed dining area I always loved coming here with my parents when I was younger. The design at this location was beautiful if you ever have a chance request to dine in... More
