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.

“Attentive service, fun atmosphere”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

I hadn't been to the Old Spaghetti Factory in many years but it's still delightful and delicious! My husband, teenage daughter and I stopped in (with a reservation) on a Thursday evening and were seated promptly. We loved the all-inclusive dinners. Salads were fresh and just the right size. Small loaves of bread were served with small tubs of regular and garlic butter. Spaghetti, lasagna, and chicken parmesan were all well prepared. The ice cream for dessert was a nice finish to a good meal that everyone enjoyed. Our waiter, Tim, was extremely attentive and anticipated our every need. It was a pleasure to be served by someone who so clearly loves his job!

“Most amazing atmosphere, but the staff lacks.”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

My fiance took me here for the first time, I loved it. The atmosphere was amazing. I brought my friend one time and then we decided that everytime we go out to dinner, it would be here. We love the food, but the lack of attention from the staff upsets us everytime. If the food wasnt so good, we would not return. This is something easy to fix. For a restaurant staying open for so long with such a wonderful reputation, and so beautifuly decorated, it would be a shame to have it go under because of bad customer service. I hope that improves soon.
