The best Lasagna on the planet, bar none. If I could make this Lasagna at home, I would never leave the house (or I wouldn't be able to, one of the two). Their Creamy Pesto Dressing is also out of this world. The service is good, and the price is reasonable. I have never been disappointed.
Kitschy Italian restaurant churns out heaping plates of pasta that won't break the bank. – In Short
Whimsical antiques and decorative items--velvet armchairs, vintage-looking fringed lamps and booths made from iron bedsteads--fill the dining room. The OSF Classics menu offers spaghetti with a choice of mushroom sauce, rich meat sauce, browned butter and feta-like mizithra cheese sauce, and more. Other popular favorites are the baked lasagna--layers of noodles, tomato sauce and four kinds of cheese--and the fettuccine Alfredo. Meals include a green salad, fresh-baked bread and ice cream.
Mediocre, but satisfying and affordable. – Maybe according to the modern American's standards for portions, these portions could be considered "small". But only for those who are used to consuming about three times as much food as you should in any one meal. If you get the Baked Chicken, for example, you will get about 1 and a half cups of spaghetti with cheese and butter, and a chicken breast with marinara. It takes up the whole, decent-sized plate. And if you really feel so inclined, you can even "hearty size" a meal and get more. Also, all the meals come with bread that they will keep bringing to you as often as you want, salad or soup, a drink, and a but of ice cream at the end. And that doesn't include the appetizer if you get one.
The food here is nothing that can't be made at home. It's not high quality, but for the price, you can't really complain. This isn't the classy 5-star Italian restaurant that offers 4 or 5 different sparkling water varieties when you sit down. But it does take care of your pasta craving and leave you as stuffed as you choose to be.
The service varies. I've had awesome service here and really bad service. There are enough people around, including the bussers, so that if you need something, it isn't difficult to get someone to take care of you. Overall, an okay place to eat if you're on a budget or don't feel like making dinner.
Wow- so very bad. – We called "The Old Spaghetti Factory" to find out if we "needed" reservations, our reply was a very curt "No you put your name in and wait." When I asked if there was a wait list currently, the girl replied with "There is no wait right now but things can change in an instant" and she then hung up!
The Food was Sub-Par, the portion sizes were rediculously small, the Chicken Marsala looked and tasted microwaved. AVOID this place at all cost!
Good old standby – We still go there after 15 years. Since I was small and the cable car was the cool place to sit, spag is great for when you want consistant grub. Not too fancy, not too much food and not too expensive.
ok – I had to wait a long time for a table. Then the portion of food I got I felt was rather small. Food was very good though. Friendly service.
