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.

Made reservations and then changed them twice as our plans changed. Staff was great at accommodating us. Got right in and served very quickly.

To start with we really liked our waitress Romini!! She was pretty, polite, polished and particular! She looked after all our requests with a nice smile.

From the moment we walked in, we were impressed with the efficiency of this place. Friendly staff, interesting decor. I like the idea of an all-inclusive menu.
Food was hot and of acceptable quality and flavour. Great family spot. Lots of birthday celebrations when we were there, including one in our group.
Our waiter, Kyle, was amazing. He was super- busy but so on the ball. Very attentive!
Kids enjoyed their meals and liked that a second helping was available!

We've been going here as a family for ages, since they used to bake the bread by the front door. I went as a kid, dressed up for the theatre or big occassions. I've gone as a teen and young adult, to eat with friends, dates, and later to meet at the bar. Now, as a mom of a young baby and a teen, I have an even greater appreciation for an "all-in-one" place. The decor has always been fascinating for kids, especially when a fussy baby or toddler needs to be taken on a walk-about to calm down. Their busy times are still not as long as other restaurants, because the place is huge. I've been plenty of times when we just walked in, and I've had to wait a long time, but it was worth it. They're efficient, but always friendly and jovial and I have never ever felt rushed. The food is tasty. We have always loved that soup/salad, entree, coffee/tea, ice cream, and nonstop bread is included. No problems with any requests we've ever had, and leftovers were packed up for the road. Once, we had an unfinished kids meal accidentally cleared from the table, and they gave us a new one to go. The portions and prices have changed a bit over the 30+ years we've gone, but it still beats any other for value.

We absolutely loved reading your review, Jennifer. Thank you for taking the time to write it. Nothing make us happier than hearing from a customer who used to visit us as a child and now brings their own children. It is customers like you who have allowed us to stay in business for over 45 years. We are sincerely grateful for both your loyalty and your kind words. We hope that you and your loved ones visit us again soon. All the best!

We arrived around 830 pm and we found the place mostly empty and yet with a wait list, I guess because of the limited amount of staff. The bread (normally served immediately) took also a while as it was in the oven, but did make it in all its warmth after the salads as we had our main. The food is not great and while my spaghetti with mushroom and TerraGon were ok, almost al dente, they were not memorable. The waitress was amongst the best ever, fast, courteous and with the most lovely smile at any time. Well done
