Description: A meal at The Old Spaghetti Factory is an experience. We invest meticulous attention to our decor so our guests feel as though they're stepping into another world. Every location is adorned with antique lighting, intricate stained glass displays and an old-fashioned trolley car that doubles as a dining hall. Nearly every item on The Old Spaghetti Factory's menu is made on-site, from scratch, using fresh ingredients. Unlike most restaurants, when you order our entrees, we serve you a complete meal, which includes bread, soup or salad, and dessert. And with our famous kid's menu, special treats and fun activities, we encourage families to feel at home in our restaurants. The Old Spaghetti Factory is still family owned and operated and we welcome your family to join ours for a memorable dining experience.

“I like pasta”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

That being said, what's not to like about the spaghetti factory? I've been here several times over the last 7 years and I have to say that most of the time it put a smile on my face. There was only one time when I decided to get healthy and order the wheat pasta spaghetti-if you don't like wheat pasta in your house, you are not going to like it any better here.

“good value for money”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

It's been around forever, nothing ever changes. The venue is interesting even though it is huge it is still welcoming and they know how to get customers in and out with good middle of the road fare.

“Fun”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

The food isn't amazing but the ambience and staff make up for it. It's exactly like it was when I was going there at a kid in the early 80's.

“family”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

loud, noisy, a little outdated. But I feel as though the Old spaghetti factory is classic and been around forever.

“Bring's back childhood memories!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

The food was good, the ambiance was amazing. It is like stepping into the twilight zone. I don't think anything has changed in like 30 years...
