Was in town for a show and needed to have dinner before the show. The restaurant was busy (as most Spaghetti Factories are) but efficient. We were seated immediately and were eating garlic cheesy bread in no time! The spaghetti with mizithra cheese is a savory choice for cheese lovers. Quick and satisfying all around

Mt first visit ever to an old spaghetti factory. Inside is very impressive. Wow. Swanky. Ordered the lasagna with a salad. For my drink I got the cotton candy limeade. Very good and comes with real cotton candy. Salad was basic and could be fresher. Lasagna and bread were delicious. The supomoni ice cream was the best. Not very attentive... More

I believe this was my third time for lunch at The Old Spaghetti Factory. It is consistently good, especially the service. I had a BLT salad that was quite good. My business associate had pasta with the day's special sauce that he said was unusual but good. A nice quiet place to talk and quick service for those who had... More

Atmosphere is really relaxing. It's usually busy with a short waiting list. But the food makes it worth while. Good service and the food is really good, and affordable.

The food is tasty...don't know how authentic it is, but I like it. The house pesto dressing is delicious! Warm fresh bread with garlic butter is your free appetizer, and your meal wraps up with a scoop of spumoni ice cream.

After my favorite Old Spaghetti Factory closed down in Los Angeles, I was so excited they are still around. This will ALWAYS be my favorite restaurant, with the themed dining area I always loved coming here with my parents when I was younger. The design at this location was beautiful if you ever have a chance request to dine in... More

I ate here with friends on Saturday evening, this place was packed! There were people in the bar, in the lobby outside, on the stairs outside, in the parking lot, there were tons and tons of people waiting to be seated! I had no idea that this place was even that good to have such a long line. I had... More

We really wanted to like this restaurant. It has an odd smell. Service was good. Bread was good. Salad was drowned in dressing. We ordered lasagna and chicken marsala. The chicken was awful but the sauce was good. The lasagna lacked flavor. The ice cream was full of the ice crystals. We were very disappointed.

Love this place, in spite of the smell. Its an old historic building, nostalgia overload . Lots of roominess, BIG in every direction. Nice attendants. Two things stood out, no three. The smell is worse than I remember. Way to many chopped tomatoes in the sauce for the lazagna. Stomach ache on that one. They dont have Italian Dressing for... More

I was able to watch trains out the back window. The staff is friendly and will bend over backwards for you sometimes and if your attitude is friendly, they'll remember you.
