The charm of the Old Spaghetti Factory has worn over the years, but the mizithra cheese pasta will remain forever one of my favorite things to eat.

Although noisy, the riverfront location is beautiful. Our food was really good, and service was excellent.

We enjoyed our 3-course meal at The Old Spaghetti Factory.... soup or salad & bread, entree, and ice cream. We enjoyed the atmosphere of this restaurant along the beautiful Willamette River. The food is "fine" (pretty basic Italian food), but the prices are reasonable & our service was great! We had a good experience! 😃

This is a good place for family gatherings, especially with kids. The prices are reasonable and the menu is varied and suitable for most food preferences.

We have never been to this chain before but decided to try it for a week-night dinner. The building is fun and the view of the river is great. We were a group of 5 who order 5 different common mains (fettuccine alfredo, chicken piccata, lazagna, etc.) with side order of cheesy bread and broccoli for the table. All means... More

This was our first visit to this particular location, and our party was impressed with the views and historic building that this OSF is housed in (purple roof and all!). I've always loved OSF for the nostalgic factor, and the service and food on this particular night (we were celebrating our wedding with family and friends) was the best we've... More

Had a party of 10 (including 5 kids). Were seated at a large table which could have handled several more people. Waiter was competent and attentive without being overbearing. Food was standard fare for a spaghetti place, well prepared and tasty in abundant quantities. Prices are moderate.

The food is decent, at best. The staff are always friendly, though and the quirky decor makes it a fun place for dinner with the family.

This building is amazing. The food is always good here and service was wonderful. We went in the winter and they sat us near the river so we had a great view and the trees were all covered in Christmas lights. There was a place for my boys to get some energy out before dinner upstairs in the game room... More

We arrived on a weeknight and were shocked to see all of the families and large groups waiting for tables. We headed upstairs to the bar and found seats there easily. Had a nice chat with the bartender and he took care of us. The food isn't the best, but it's good and reasonably priced. The coursing comes pretty quickly... More
