“A must for locals and tourists.”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

This restaurant offers a unique dining experience with great food and atmosphere. This is obviously an Italian restaurant. The food is very good, moderately priced, and the service is always great. They have a varied menu. I always get one of the three course meals because I love their spumoni ice cream. I love their food, but to me the atmosphere is the highlight of the trip to Louisville's Old Spaghetti Factory...it's like a walk back in time. It is located in downtown Louisville in the old Levi Strauss building. They have preserved the highly ornate features of the old building from it's hay-day in the early 1900's, like the heavy brass doors, the brass winding staircase, crystal chandeliers, and more. To add a unique touch, there is also an old caboose in the dining room that offers seating for a few guests. If you like Italian food you love this dining experience. Just outside the restaurant you'll find horse and carriage rides--a perfect way to finish a romantic evening or to just see a bit of the city. I highly recommend the Old Spaghetti Factor whether you live in Louisville or are just here for a visit.

“Wonderful buildng and great good”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We were really struggling to find a pasta restaurant in downtown Louisville, we very pleasantly surprised! Though its a chain, the period building give this particular restaurant real character. The staff are very friendly and the past is excellent value and very tasty.

“Good food at reasonable price”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We ate with a large group of friends following our attending a musical program downtown. It was a wonderful experience--a delicious, three-course meal that was well prepared and served in a very timely fashion. This was our first visit to Old Spaghetti Factory here though we have enjoyed them in other places where we have lived or visited.

“Good all around”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Stopped by The Old Spaghetti Factory after the packet pickup for the Louisville Mini Marathon. We have been to this restaurant several times over the years and always enjoyed it. Nothing fancy or pretentious here. Service was great and being seated in the rail car was different. Good value for the money
