The Old Spaghetti Factory 5/7/2006

I had heard so many good things about this place, mainly that it was fun and the food was great. How true. The atmosphere is fun yet comforting upon entering the front door. There is plenty of room to maneuver in. The interior is filled with wood furniture, floors, walls, etc. It is great. The food is fantastic and comes in ample portion sizes. One price includes a full course meal from salad to dessert. How nice. Prices are reasonable. more

Give them a try—but only if you have before. 5/4/2006

It’s thrilling to me that this restaurant has hardly changed since my fourth birthday, 35 years ago, when the waiters sang "Happy birthday, Princess Aurora" (so seriously that I thought I’d convinced them it was my real name); the velvet armchairs and silk-fringed lamps that were here in 1971 are here now. Because they take no reservations (leading to one- and two-hour waits that once excited me almost as much as waiting for Christmas—something newcomers don’t appreciate), it wasn't until I was fourteen that I was seated in the trolley car right inside the huge brick factory building. Much later, I got to sit in one of the "beds"—the booths made out of brass and wrought-iron bedsteads—and only then, after twenty years, did I feel like I’d had the full experience. But I was far from finished, and I don’t think I’ll ever be—unless the remodeling Chloe has seen turns them into something entirely different. [Added after Chloe's comment.] As to the food and service, it seems that everyone I know who has not been coming here since age four is unimpressed by both. Maybe it’s nostalgia, but I love it. Try the Manager’s Favorite with mizithra and marinara. more

Good, simple, family food 3/16/2006

This is a great, casual place for families. Kids love the menu and there is plenty of food, and the meals include salad, drinks and dessert for all. Good price for what you get and it's a fun place to visit. All sorts of basic, homey types of pasta. Love the spaghetti with meat sauce, the linguini & clam sauce, and the browned butter with mizthra cheese. Great place to come with a large group. more

yummy spaghetti 9/14/2005

Oh boy, if you like spaghetti, pasta and what not, you'll LOVE The Old Spaghetti Factory! It's so yummy! and I will admit, a little pricy, but thats because its located in downtown (i think ballard) and it's a good company. A bowl of spaghetti can cost you about $8.00. I think its a really great place for a family to check out. And most the time, they even let you keep the cups that you drink out of. Well, they did for me a few years back, I havent been there for a while, so I will go and check it out myself! more

you'd better be (or bring) a kid 9/12/2005

I enjoy spaghettios (maybe even cold ones) more than the pasta at OSF. The red sauce is populated with carrot fragments, salads are limp and lame, service is disinterested. If there's not somebody with you who's excited to be sitting in a train, you're in the wrong place. more

Great Dining for all 7/15/2005

I remember coming here as a kid and sitting in the caboose. It was just as fun then as it is now. Now my two year old loves sitting in there while eating his spaghetti. I love the roasted chicken with spaghetti and browned butter mizithra cheese. The spumoni is a yummy treat afterwards. The prices can't be beat! more
