Very disappointing. We always seek out OSF but this one was not up to the level of others we've been to. The mizratha cheese spaghetti was bitter and no meat in the meat sauce. However, good location and good service.

The Old Spaghetti Factory is at best just average. I would avoid it except if you have a large group of people in your party.

If you are looking for a budge meal this is a place to go. Food for children and adults. Lunch, dinner, bar and plenty of seating.

A re-done restaurant (Rattenbury's to a name-brand OSF). The food is great and the portions are very generous. Good menu choices; nice décor; reasonable prices. There is construction on the street outside, which makes getting into the restaurant difficult and parking impossible!

Spaghetti topped with grated Mizithra cheese and drizzled with browned butter... Nothing else matters...
