Horrible Service – I've grown up going to the Spaghetti Factory and used to get nastalgic for their spaghetti and meat sauce. We went last night, prepared to wait and were told that it would be about 35 minutes. Fine - we went to the bar. We got a drink and sat for about 1/2 hour. Our number hadn't come up so we requested another drink. The bartender then proceeded to ask us three more times what we wanted (Jack and Coke - not difficult), served everyone around us and then served us the wrong drinks - all of which took another 30 minutes. After waiting over an hour, with abysmal service, we left and walked across the parking lot to Spadra - which had attentive, polite service and not to mention the best manacotti I've ever had. It's sad - but an era has come to an end.. I will never be back.. I can cook cheap pasta at home.
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.
Great value, great dinner, but sort of loud – I went here recently on a Saturday night and although we had to wait about 45 minutes for a table, it wasn't bad since there is ample seating inside and outside. I was a little iffy about the menu since everything was so cheap, but everything my boyfriend and I ordered was great. Our server was very attentive and it was a good dinner at a great value. Due to all the families and large parties, I probably wouldn't go here every weekend, but it's fun when you want to try something a little different.
Great Family Atmosphere – I went there Father's Day 2004 with my family. I liked the atmosphere, but I've had better Spaghetti. The prices were reasonable for a family of 4. The waiter was checking up on us to see how we were and he refilled our drinks promptly. I appreciated that.
