Love this place, in spite of the smell. Its an old historic building, nostalgia overload . Lots of roominess, BIG in every direction. Nice attendants. Two things stood out, no three. The smell is worse than I remember. Way to many chopped tomatoes in the sauce for the lazagna. Stomach ache on that one. They dont have Italian Dressing for... More

I was able to watch trains out the back window. The staff is friendly and will bend over backwards for you sometimes and if your attitude is friendly, they'll remember you.

After more than 20 years I returned to California and I had the chance to go to this wonderful place. Great fod and service. You can eat choose from a salad, soup, pasta and glass will never be empty and you can have the delicious bread anytimes you want.

The food is good...one thing they have that I haven't seen at other Italian restaurants is their house pesto salad dressing. So delicious! I love the atmosphere as well...if you go for lunch on a weekday, you can be seated right away, but dinner most nights (but especially weekends) you will wait. It seems like the prices have gone up... More

This was my first visit to the Spaghetti Factory. It was good food, but service was very slow and even with a reservation we had to wait almost an hour for our table.
