This is one of my favorite places to eat. Whether its Lasagne or the Spaghetti (Meat Lovers Treat) you wont be disappointed. From the bread to the salad to main course then Spumoni.......its great!

We had been traveling a long time and stopped to eat here before checking into our hotel. We all liked it! THere were 2 adults and 3 kids. My husband and I wished that their menu was more robust, but we both really liked what we had. My kids slurped down their homemade spaghetti. But for my kids, the best... More

Right off the 78 freeway and in a retail center with lots of restaurants to choose, this location of the popular chain does not disappoint. The complete Spaghetti Factory restaurant menu is offered...and the decor is the same as all of their restaurants. Good service...sometimes busy on weekends.

I gave an extra star for decor Came for a Rotary Club meeting at lunch.  I could go on and on about the classy stained glass, velvet upholstered chairs, and high vaulted ceilings but decor does not a restaurant make.

Interesting atmosphere...Victorian furniture, stained glass, wooden beams and a trolley car. Staff, especially the manager, were friendly. Meals were ok, nothing we could not have made at home. Pasta was dry, meatball sandwich was mediocre. Interesting experience with atmosphere, we couldn't figure out how it tied to Italian restaurant. We would not go back.

This is a typical Spaghetti Factory; nothing special. I sat at the bar and enjoyed talking with the bartender. Not too many choices of wine by the glass. The angel hair pomodoro was okay, but not great.

nice ambiance, but food was ok. We came about one hour before closing and we were sat near the kitchen. I guess it's one of those, "I'll try it this once" sort of thing.

Had a gang of people for this restaurant and everything went smooth as you would expect. Quality food and fine service are unusual at chains, but not here, surprisingly.
