It's been years since I have been to an Old Spaghetti Factory, and this visit didn't disappoint! Large portions, homemade taste and ice cream dessert included along with friendly, attentive servers made our supper experience awesome.

As vegetarians this place was a godsend! Made a welcome change from our usual ethnic stuff. Generous helpings enough for two. And they made me an excellent Bloody Mary!

We went there upon a fellow traveler's recommendation. The restaurant is on the top of a mall downtown. The prices were very reasonable and served large portions and the food was excellent. A bonus was the drink specials that they have each night. My wife...More
