Really disappointed. The waitress was a bit condescending when I said I wanted a table for 1. They aren't busy and it took her 5 min to still find me a table when less than 10 tables were occupied. I like the salad, especially the ranch dressing. But my chicken parmesan was disappointing. The chicken tasted like it was shake... More

We had dinner here. It's very dark inside or at least in the area we were in. You get a salad although it was all lettuce with a few slivers of carrot and croutons. The house ranch dressing was good. My spaghetti was good but not great. We did love the ice cream and the bread.

The Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant has always been a favorite of mine. We have visited several in different cities. Always beautiful decor and delicious food! Unbelievably reasonable prices! The Indianapolis restaurant lives up to the high standards of this chain. Only criticism would be the long and out of the way trip to their restrooms.

We were here in August 2016 with a group of 8 friends and family. The wait was very minimal. We were seated and our waitress was friendly and helped with our menu questions. The food was good, the portions were large, and came with a scoop of ice cream for dessert! This was my first time to eat at an... More

The Spaghetti Factory is one of those places that I find myself at for some type of group event every few years. My wife and I recently attended a dinner here and I am now reminded why it is better suited for group events rather than 'that special night out'. We eat out frequently and downtown Indianapolis has a number... More

Was there with 18ppl w/reservations for seating together. 1/3 of the group was placed away from big group. The service was very poor. Had to ask 3x for a drink. The chicken parm used to be me favorite. It was crunchier and chewier than I had ever seen. We had tickets for a show that we were running late for... More

We came here and expected a wait but we were very happy when they seated us immediately! Beautiful atmosphere! Food was reasonable and delicious and came rather quickly! Fresh bread was warm and crunchy on outside and soft on inside! Perfect! Want to go again but we will be sure not to stop when there is a home football game... More

The Old Spaghetti Factory is known for a three course meal deal. Full meal, bread, salad or soup, and ice cream for one low price. It is all good and service is just fine. We used to have one in Cincinnati and wish it were still there.

The Old Spaghetti Factory is a standard in cities everywhere. Old buildings, beautiful atmospheres, great brick and beam interiors. The food is staple. You can count on good bread, good salad with a nice house pesto dressing, good spaghetti, good service. This restaurant is no exception to the level the corporation sets and holds its individual units to. Right from... More

A family favorite when we go to Indy. Everything is delicious, huge portions and comes with ice cream at the end. The bar is good too! It's a beautiful old building with whimsical lighting. The only detractor is the bathrooms are not in the restaurant, but out a side door, downstairs and ADA stalls are long, not wide so not... More
