We are here the night before the Indy Mini Marathon, as did hundreds of other runners. The wait was a bit long (45minutes) but well worth it! Once seated we had very speedy service. The waitress was fabulous and the food was delicious. I tried...More

It had been a long time since last visit to an Old Spaghetti Factory, and I found it just as comfortable as I had remembered. The food is pretty good, not outstanding, but just as good as it always has been, with no surprises. Service...More

This was a first time visit, but I don't think I will go back. The food was just okay, tasted really processed and canned. I thought it was over priced for the quality. The service was good, and the staff was friendly and nice

Worth it even if there's a wait! Great food, great service, and the atmosphere can't be beat. You won't regret it.

I recently ate here with a group with a pre-determined menu. The food was good, but the portion size was a little small. There was a young woman who went around making balloon creations for a donation. Very cute!

We had reservation (which is not really mandatory) right when they opened at 5 p.m. Had plenty of time for relaxing 3 course meal with plenty of time to walk to basketball game 2 blocks away. And the Ice cream for dessert was just right!

So we got there and the wait was not as long as I thought it could have been for a Saturday evening. I went in and put our name on the list. They asked for my cell number and would text me when our table...More

The Old Spaghetti Factory never disappoints. This Indy location was up to my expectations, and we enjoyed a great meal of spaghetti with the meat sauce. Service was prompt, and the fresh bread hot and tasty. Salads seem to have shrunk from the all you...More

There are parking meters on Meridian and a parking garage about two blocks South of the restaurant. You could park at Circle Center, but it would be a little bit of a walk too.

Yes, I know they used to, but normally the wait is not that long & you can always walk across the street to the Mall & shop for a while IF the wait is too long.
