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 place to bring family and large group – The food was very cheap and we got bread, salad, drink and ice cream, all for one price. man i loved the spumion ice cream...also the pesto salad dressing is to die for but we can forget the Cheese. That the best part about the old spaghetti factory.if you have been there you should check it out. i was there with a group of 85 people and was that fun.
Good value – Not super high end at all, but with the nicer decor you'll feel pretty good about what you are getting. Great specials for dinner when they have them and a nice bar selection to boot! They can also accomodate large crowds and seatings too, which is always nice.
I absolutly think that the Old Spaghetti Factory is one of the best kept secrets around. The settings are great, the food, is great and the service is great. – The first time that I went to the Old Spaghetti Factory, was back in 1973, in Denver, Co. It is my all time favorite places to eat spaghetti..Their menu is great with lots of selections, and great prices..Not many places that you can sit down to a great meal for less than $10. each. You get everything for that price too..You get salad, fresh baked bread, an entree'and your drink..I am getting hungry just thinking about it..My favorite item is The Potpori..It is four different sauces..You get clam sauce, mushroom, meat, and Mizithra cheese and Brown butter...Yummmmm....And it is a great place to meet with a group..Love it...
Old is right... – Went to the factory on a Saturday night and found it to be BORING. The service was great, probably because we were one of 5 tables there. The food was so bland! The bread was good, but other than that it was just "blah". We were the only ones there under the age of 65 and the dining room was silent, no music. It was incredibly cheap for salad, meal, ice cream and drink, but I do not think I will ever go back.
Solid Italian chain – The Old Spaghetti chain is well known for decent pasta in huge portions, including pre-meal bread and coloring kits and post-meal desserts, and the same is true of the Fresno branch. The restaurant is big w/ a huge train-car in the center where they like to put kids. This place is definitely kid friendly, will serve large families, and might even pass for a decent date for a high school/college kid. The food and service are both solid. Decor is fun for kids.
