Had a great time

Decided to visit for the first time on a whim and very happy we did. First off , the building is absolutely beautiful! The stained glass, wooden beams and the decor. Just beautiful. I decided to try their garlic bread appetizer and it's so simple yet so delicious. For my entree I chose the Pot Pourii. It's a plate of pasta with 4 different sauces. Brown butter and certain cheeses. The clan sauce, meat, and regular marinara. My favorite was the brown butter and the yummy clam sauce. So delicious. I recommend a visit. It's a bit pricey but you are downtown. Otherwise, that's the only con I can say.

Very Slow & Hair in Food

They took 45 minutes to seat us. Then, it took 10 more minutes for a waitress to take our drink order, then 10 minutes to come back and give us our soft drinks and take our lunch order. Thirty minutes later our lunch arrived. Two hours was too long for a lunch! My daughter's spaghetti had a hair in it! We never mentioned the hair because I didn't want to wait another hour for a manager. That happened 7 years ago on a week day and we never returned!

Poor Quality Food

Nice place and nice environment but the quality and taste of the food was very poor. When I went in, it was really crowded and it seems that waitresses could not handle the volume of customers so it took them forever to come back and refill our drinks.

Good Atmosphere, Food Not So Great

The atmosphere at The Old Spaghetti Factory is great, but the food is just ok. I have been there twice, and both times I was not impressed with my meal. You get what you pay for here.

Good service, good atmosphere, salty food

The service was good, the atmosphere was nice, but my food was very salty. The bread was just plain bread, the salad was okay (bad lettuce, but GREAT dressing, I had the creamy pesto), but my entree was very salty (I had the chicken marsala which came with spaghetti with mizithra cheese and browned butter). I got vanilla ice cream and it was VERY freezer burnt (it was crunchy). My finacee really liked the food and the ice cream (they ordered the baked chicken and spumoni ice cream). For the price I had a nice evening out and some left overs, but if you are looking for authentic Italian, rich and well-balanced flavors, and great home-cooked food, I would go elsewhere.



Love this place

the fun part of the night for me is to close my eyes and try to figure out how the dish I am eating was made. What went into the sauce, when it was added and how the process most likely went. The rest of the night is filled with the company of whomever I am with and unobtrusive staff that fill my glass, clear away food plates and smile straight from the heart. A joyful dining experience for any occasion.

Better off going to olive garden

I have been there twice and both times was disappointed. Once I went during lunch and thought maybe it was just th ecook so tried it for dinner one night and ordered chicken parmesan and it was rubbery not good at all. I am an italian food lover and have had chicken parmesan at many different restaurants and I hate to say this was the worst.

bad service, ok food

went there for the first time, the service was lousy, took for ever to get anything even for them to bring our drinks. The food was just ok , i would rather eat at olive garden way better quality..
