wasnt impressed with the quality of food, the quantity was overwelming. the server was just ok, dont receommend it!
We were so looking forward to eating at The Old Spaghetti Factory this evening but after tonight's experience I don't know that we will ever be back. Started out with the Hostesses yelling at each other and proceeding to my killing a bug crawling across our table before the waiter took our order. Our salads came the same time our entrees did and couldn't relax to enjoy our meal because the wait staff were all running around literally and often times almost running into each other. Found a piece of plastic in my salad and barely an apology from our waiter. Our waiter was very nice the only up side, but still a very unpleasant experience.
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.
Browned Butter and Mazithra Cheese!! – When I was married and Lived in Littleton, we went to the Old Spaghetti Factory OFTEN!! We always had at least part of our order as "Browned Butter and Mazithra cheese. I learned to LOVE it. My wife and I would use ANY excuse to go there for that Spaghetti. Now that I lived in Tennessee, I REALLY miss that place. Guess I'll try the one in Nashville again someday.
LOVE IT ! ! ! – I love the Mizithra & Brown Butter Spaghetti! I think this restaurant is a really nice place. It's reasonably priced and (thank god!) is different from all the typical restaurants downtown. Also, the staff are always friendly to us and the manager has thanked us personally for dining. The interior is stunning as well!
Horrible. Mic running in dining room. – My date and I went here last night, and got through the salad portion, then happened to glance to the right and noticed mic running all over. The manager was like, "well we'd like you to come back, we're sorry".. I'm never going back here!
Great Value & Date spot! – Just had dinner there last week and I always tell myself to go back sometime. I feel cool knowing a reasonablly priced (almost cheap) meal downtown that make you feel like you have been to a destination. Food is not the best but good. Cool date spot....
Taste like spaghetti from a factory... – Spagetti factory taste just like it's name....spaghetti from a factory. It was very bland and dissapointing. It does have a very cool interior design. I ate there once and would not go back.
What a Value!!! – What a value for the money. Great atmosphere, good service, and the food is good. Where else can you either take the kids or have a cheap lunch/dinner date. Their creamy pesto (ranch dressing) is the best!
Wonderful downtown casual dining – We dined at The Old Spaghetti Factory for my last birthday, and I was thrilled with the interior decor. (Being a person who frequently gages architecture and decor, this was an immediate plus.) The restaurant is, as you could tell by the name, set in an old train station, and the floor plan is layed out with the large room divided not by whole walls but barriers to indicate small areas. This creates a very open but warm ambiance, which I loved.
The meals are, as I'm sure others have said, a great price for the amount of food. Service and atmosphere doesn't indicate casual dining however, which was nice. Overall, a great downtown place to dine.
