slow, poor service – worst service I've received in recent memory. Slow. Impolite. Food mediocre. Spent over 20 minutes waiting for desert, and at least that much waiting to order, and then waiting for the entree. Very disappointed. No apologies from server.

Really bad pasta – First off, I remember the original, beatnik North Beach Old Spaghetti Factory in San Francisco. This place is not by any stretch of the imagination anything close to the original. Second, I AM from San Francisco, so probably several strikes against my opinion from the get-go. But I do recognize good food and I do recognize poor service.

I told my server first thing that I needed to be out of the restaurant by such-and-such time. He assured me "No Problem!" I waited and waited and waited for the pasta to arrive. I was thinking, "Well, if they're preparing to order, it's worth it." Silly me. What I got was a bowl of mushy noodles, over dressed with gloppy, canned-tasting sauce.

Even though I was hungry, I just COULD NOT EAT IT!

Then I waited and waited to catch my server's eye, then ANYONE's eye, so I could pay my bill and get back to work on time. I came thisclose to just walking out.

It is not my practice to write bad things about restaurants. I usually can find something good - but this place sucked on so many levels. If your idea of good food is stuff you find in the food court at the mall, you might like this place.

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.

Alot of food for a good price. – I was amazed at how much food we got for the amount of money spent. Usually good italian restaurants cost you an arm and a leg, and you only get salad and an entree. The atomsphere was great and parking was convient for it being downtown.

Wallows in Mediocrity – The Old Spaghetti Factory is a chain restaurant that tries to play itself off as something unique and quirky. It's good for what it is--a place to take a big group or a family out for a moderately price meal. The service is attentive, and the food is tasty, although nothing special. Very child friendly and also has a full bar. All in all, not bad, but not "good" either.

Great Value – You get a lot for your money at the Spaghetti Factory. Meals include bread, soup or salad, entree, ice cream, and coffee, tea, or milk. The Spaghetti with Browned Butter and Mizithra Cheese is always my favorite. You can't beat their Spumoni ice cream - although most people aren't very open to the idea of trying it. It will be noisy and you will have to wait, but the old factory setting does have character.

Unique Place to Eat – I've been there only a few times and when I've been there it hasn't been very busy and would get a seat right away. I like the mixed-matched old chairs though some could be retired. The meals are good when getting a salad, pasta, and then ice cream for dessert. I enjoy going there.

You're kidding me, right? – The Spag Factory for lovers? NO! The Spaghetti Factory is a place to take 10-20 screaming children to feed them cheaply. The ederly also frequent the establishment because it's cheap.

If you're looking for a nice quiet get-a-way with your loved one, forget The Spaghetti Factory.

Seedy – The last time I was in the Old Spaghetti Factory, I was very disappointed. The service was good, but the tables and ashtrays were dirty and the food was average at best. It's a great place for a great restaurant! The Old Spaghetti Factory is not that restaurant.

The food was just average. I do not recommend this business to friends.
