Staying in the vicinity we returned to the OSF after 4+ years. As before, we were quickly seated and the service was prompt and attentive. Great warm bread accompanied the salads, and surprisingly enough, the tomato-based spaghetti sauce was quite tasty. The portions were generous, so that we literally had no room for dessert.

Family friendly restaurant with tasty food. Wonderful location on the Willamette River. No outside dining. If new to the restaurant, when checking in, ask for seat by the window looking out at the river. If you want a quieter dining experience, sit in the bar upstairs. The seats by the windows go first typically but they are a nice place... More

At the Old Spaghetti Factory you get a 3-course meal for about $20 a person. I had chicken piccata, salad and ice-cream and it was delicious. Our table overlooked the river, which was a bonus. Nice friendly staff, prompt service.

3 generations enjoyed a nice dinner on a very busy Saturday night. It's a really lovely family experience, lots of ambiance and good feelings and yes, somewhat noisy. Each of us ordered different meals--potpourri, Vesuvius, spaghetti w/clam sauce, etc. OSF has been a PDX tradition for almost 50 years--reliably well-prepared food & attentive service. We typically go to this location... More

It's nice to know that as a customer I can count on good food and service. On short notice a group of clients needed to find a good place to eat and conduct business. OSF filled the bill. While they weren't terribly fast getting us to a table, once seated, everything ran smoothly. The all-you-can-eat soup and salad lunch is... More

We took another couple and their kids (8 and 10) last night. The food was very good as usual at OSFs but the location, facility and STAFF were the nicest we have encountered. Kudos to the management and staff for making an expected Good Night turn into a great night. Our server treated the kids with respect and patience. Well... More

We ordered some side dishes of broccoli-buttery, lightly tossed with cheese-truly delicious. Other dishes were so-so: lasagna, ravioli, meat sauces; nothing to exceptional. The dining area overlooked the water, and that was a delight.

Beautiful restaurant well recommended by the locals, but the quality of the food was disappointing. Pasta was cold, shrimps were rare an cold an with no seasoning at all. I wished they had a better tasty Italian food as they claimed. Sorry but I cannot recommended.

The host took my name as we arrived and phone number so he could text when our table was ready. I asked about bar seating. He said if I found a table to come back and tell him. I went back to tell him we found a table and I had to stand in line again. When I got up... More

Don't go during the rush times, try to arrive at the end of lunch or early or late for dinner and you will have a better experience. River view or caboose seating is so nice... we had a 101 year old with us so river view it was (you have to go up steps to get into the caboose.) The... More
