A great stop for a quick value dinner. Family friendly but with a nice bar. The dinner salad is pretty basic but I really like the creamy pesto dressing. The bread rolls are good and the service is usually very friendly. This isn't 5 star dining but better than most other options nearby. The lasagna is not the best so... More

Our group of 30+ had a Saturday lunch at TOSF. It's not an easy place to find, more or less hidden in a commercial area. We were seated at two long tables in a private room. The decor, table and chairs were comfortable and inviting. Our server, I think it was Griffin or Griffith, was great...he was friendly, courteous, attentive... More

My friend wanted to go there on a Thurs. nite at 4:58 PM after seeing Shen Yun at the Performing Arts Center. They told us there would be a wait because all of the staff wasn't there yet! It took 20 minutes for them to seat two groups of 12 & 14 and a few couples before us. We ordered... More

Great food very reasonable price. Great for families and party’s. Spaghetti is great. Get the managers special hearty portion if you like spaghetti. Take home what you don't finish.

The Old Spaghetti Factory has been and will always be one of my favorite go to restaurants; even before I was married. We have been creating fond memories for more than 35 years. The menu, the service, and the positive, happy faces are the best! Thank you Old Spaghetti Factory. We love you!

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.
