I never had a bad meal at the Old Spaghetti Factory. The atmosphere is fun. The service is generally good. The bar has a nice selection of wine from cheap to high end. A bowl of pistachio ice cream is the perfect end to the...More

I used to love going to the Old Spaghetti. Not sure if I just have higher expectations of what a good Italian restaurant should be or if they have slipped a lot in the last few years? Salad seems well below par now. Just charge...More

I have been coming to the OSF for decades and this time brought my kids and grandkids for dinner. Food was good as well as the service. A great place for kids and family at a reasonable price.

Everyone probably knows or suspects that really good food is found on the coast, not inland. Unfortunately the Spaghetti Factory proves them right. The food is uninspired and basically mediocre. Sauces are heavy. It's a good spot for large family gatherings with little kids, but...More

We attended our daughter's awards banquet here. There were approximately 40-45 people. There were 3 main courses, and salad set out for the buffet. Spaghetti with meatballs, spaghetti with marinara sauce, and fettuccine Alfredo. The food was good but they ran out quickly and we...More

A good place for families and well suited for young children. By no means fine dinning and far better suited for families than couples. The food is fair and the service is average but not spectacular.

One of my favorite places to eat. I would recommend tha "Manager Favorite" which allows you to try 2 types of sauces. I ALWAYS get the meat sauce coupled with the mizithra. :)
