There are few places that feel like "going out to dinner" and still truly cheap. It is not 5 star cuisine, but it will challenge any meal under $10 you have had in a long while. There atmosphere is loud and fun. The vintage decor is interesting and nostalgic. Great for kids, or after seeing Christmas in the Park.

Starting with spaghetti and salads - everything was excellent. But the main thing in this place is the atmosphere and interior, which makes the meals not only taste excellent, but leaves also great memories.

After several expensive meals in San Jose, it was refreshing to have great food for half the bill. Making reservations on their website gave us only a 5 minute wait on a Saturday night at 6 pm. The fresh bread was piping hot and delicious. I had the tortellini and my daughter had the kids fettuccini which she uncharacteristically ate... More

This was a first visit to The Old Spaghetti Factory. The historic building is nice and I love the trolley inside (where you can eat). We had a 25-30 minute wait for a table so we grabbed a drink at the bar first, which had an important match on the TV, so it was quite busy. Overall, the atmosphere was... More

I have been here many times! The quality for your value is great! Salad is included in most meals as well as your choice of vanilla or Spinoni ice cream. Great for children and large parties as well! Happy house is also a delight if you can make it before 6 pm. $3 draft beers & house wine. $3.50 fresh... More

We ate here before seeing Adele in concert at the SAP Centre. I am glad we did as the queues compared to other places were much better. We had the 3 course option which was good. The food is great and the pasta even better but the only let down is it was all a bit to quick. Main meal... More

Stopped here after leaving airport based on a search, review on another site. Very pleased by our meal. Many excellent choices on the menu for our varied palates in our family. Portions generous, made even better by the included salad/soup and spumoni. Would definitely stop here again if in the area and will look for others in our travels

I have dined @ spaghetti factory's in Canada & the service, food quality & value are always top shelf. Went to this one on a long layover, server was indifferent, completely different menu & price for what I rec'd was, in my opinion weak at best. If they are going to be a chain, should have some continuity regardless of... More

I've eaten at the Old Spaghetti Factory in different cities for years. Their prices are reasonable, portions good and food is very tasty. Most importantly my girlfriend requires a gluten free menu and the Spaghetti Factory has kept up on this and has a very nice choice of options for her. Our service was nothing short of excellent.
