New location - 1250 Pacific Ave. Just a few blocks north. Free parking in parking garage above. Enter going north on Commerce St from 13th. Good food and atmosphere. My family took me there for my birthday. Something for everyone including the little kids. Large back room with several large tables for large groups. Good prompt service. Lunch available M-F

This was a pleasant visit for sure. We sat in the bar room area however there was an old street car or train in the other room available for seating which was unique. There were 3 main dishes that they recommended. The crab ravioli, the shrimp capellini and another garlic spaghetti dish. I had the shrimp capellini and it was... More

Loved The Spaghetti Factory. Great food, great service and great prices. They brought the old trolley car over from their original site.

We were two adults and two kids. The service was super friendly and very attentive ( our server was Jeff). The food was really great. Lasagna, Tortellini, salad, bread and garlic butter, ice cream....everything perfect!! Fantastic atmosphere. Finally a great experience in a restaurant. This place is definitely to recommend. We will be back.

The food is the food, the decor is nice. The waiter we had was fairly new and overwhelmed by the rush of people. She had to fix numerous things, but always made sure it was fixed, even coming with extra lemonade just in case. The manager came to bring out a dish and checked in with us as well. So... More

Best service I've experienced in a long time. Very efficient. The food was absolutely wonderful comfort food. Hot chocolate was not quite hot. Free covered parking. Looked like a big room in back for dinner or lunch meetings.

We did have reservations for a very large group. The food was excellent and the service great. The restaurant was a little noisy, but we surely contributed to that.

This popular spot is great for sharing a family meal. We had to wait for a table, but the waiting area was comfortable, and the crowd, good humored. The food was very good and fresh, with many choices available.
