Nothing to write home to Mom about... – I recently dined at the good ol' spaghetti factory. I didn't hate it, just wasn't impressed. Both my dish and my husbands seriously lacked meat. Overall, I would rank this restaurant at about the same caliber as the Olive Garden- decent prices, NOT cheap, just decent, and mediocre food.
On the plus side, the interior is kinda cute. Although I feels a bit "warehousey"
awsome – if the bread was the only thing they served there id still go it is sooo good, the service was good, and the food even beter,
Castle like Decor – Great furniture and decor. Layout is fantasic with many room and large windows. Value is suberb. Most meals under $10, and that includes warm bread, a salad or soup, and dessert (a small dish of vanilla ice cream or spumoni). Food is decent. Parking lots all around
classic big (tasty) meal for small price – only complaint is that we were seated near a GROUP OF 14 and our waitress had to serve them, and us, AND 2 other tables. Service was SLOOOOOOWWWWWWW! Food is what it claims to be, honest food for a great price.
WOW – This is the best spaghetti I've ever had, and I'm a boy who loves his spaghetti. Yeah, there's not much else on the menu, but what do you expect from someplace called the Old SPAGHETTI Factory? Parking sucks and sometimes there's quite a long wait, but the prices are awesome for all the food you get.
Not what I expected... – I know a lot of people who really like the Old Spaghetti Factory. I however, was not overly impressed. I found the menu to be very small and the Lasagne that I decided on was very light in the meat department (and the portion didn't leave me full). The stuffed spinach ravioli my wife ordered was good, but the order was tiny. Bread was great (but bread should be great) and salad was fine. Service and ambiance were so-so. I doubt I'll be back.
Quantity, not quality – Must be the motto, because I received a large portion of Chef Boyardee grade pasta with Franco-American sauce. There are so many better Italian restaurants in town, I don't know why the Spaghetti Factory gets talked up so much.
This inexpensive restaurant is provide a wonderful atmosphere and lots of food for the price. The service is very accomadating to large groups. One of our favorite places to dine.
Great Food Great Place – The food was good and you got a lot for your dollar. A large group can dine here without breakin the budget
The restaurant for all occasions! – When it comes to sevice, this place is everything you could want for an inexpensive, but yet classy dining experience. The whole family can go, or you can have dinner for two and a bottle of wine. My experience was everything that I would have hoped for. I would definitely tell others to enjoy this for a casual yet much more than fast-food experience. The trolly inside tops it all off when dining with the family.
