Boring 80's style resturant – The noodles are cheap and don't taste fresh. The resturants are old, and have poor lightling. Would never go there again.
Poor experience – When I visited, the service was slow, the food was luke warm, bland, and in small portions.
Predictable yet boring – There are many kinds of factories. Some create unique treasures while others should be shut down because of the horrible impact that they wreak on the environment. Most, however, are average, pumping out the same product day after day. People buy what they create because it's always there, predicatable, and safe. The OSF falls into this last category. Canned sauces, dull salads, and limp pastas rule the menu while a steady bombardment of noise rules your head. You can do better. You should do better than this.
Boring Food – I remember as a child going to the Spagetti factory and having a fun and satisfactory meal. Now a days my family doesn't even discuss the Spagetti Factory. The food was once good and homely has become commercial and bland. Their italian soda are the best thing on the menu. Kids may like it, but most adults will be disappointed if they wanted italian.
The Food – Good inexpensive place to take kids, but food is much too heavy on the sauces. They don't take reservations so you always have to wait for a table. It's noisy too. Have tried it twice and won't go back.
Out of a Can – I know lot's of people like this restaurant, but it is mediocre. All of the sauces taste like they came out of a can. I don't care if it is cheap this is not Italian food. Chef Boyardee is a good comparison.
Good Family Destination – For times when you don't want to cook spaghetti... This place is consitently good for taking the family to dinner. Children love it. Good portions. Unlimited tasty bread with two different butters.
My 5-year old loves the mizithra, I like the spinach raviolis.
Don't expect gourmet cuisine here, just simple good plates at good prices.
Best Healthy Child Friendly Restaurant – My husband and I always enjoyed the Spaghetti Factory, but never knew it was so child friendly until we brought our 14 month old daughter. She is at the point where she doesn't eat what most restaurants have on their "kids menu". Most "kids menus" offer fried foods or hotdogs, and soda. So we usually bring food for our daughter. But at the Spaghetti Factory, they offered plain noodles, applesauce, and apple juice. It was the first time my toddler sat still at the table for the whole meal. I never knew until today that the Spaghetti Factory had won awards for being child friendly, but I am now their #1 Fan! Thank you for providing "simple" healthy foods for children.
Not This One... – Please do not go to this spaghetti factory. Go out of your way to go to Roseville. We had 3 kids and our order was lost, drinks we about a hour late, and they gave us a free garlic bread. I dont know why they lied and said the kitchen was backed up, when clearly they lost the order. The people next to us got up and left and we should of to... GO TO BUCCA DI PEPPO, MUCH BETTER AND FUNNER!!!
catchy title – It was great. The food was great. The value was great. I was surprised that they gave us a complete meal for the price of an entree. The service was excellent. Our garlic cheese bread was late, and we told our waiter, and he actually checked up on it and told us that it would be there momentarily. Even though they were busy, they still made time.
