We were looking at Italian restaurants offering vegetarian options and chanced upon the old sphagetti factory. The restaurant does not take reservations so there would be a minimum ten minute waiting time especially on Saturday nights. But since the service is extremely fast, chances are, you would be seated even earlier. The waiting area is roomy and the entire restaurant is filled with old time tiffany glass lighting and the likes. \r
The menu is pretty good and has few vegetarian options. Not too much on the sea food, but then I dont really eat meat, . Their ""Complete Meal"" option is a winner. For $9 or so, you could get warm bread with butter, salad with a choice of dressing, the main course, coffee/ tea or iced tea and ice cream(vanilla or spumani)...So you have a complete meal for as low as $9. The service is extremely fast and well-oiled. \r
They also have options to make the meal heartier by offering a bigger portion for a little extra money. Or you could also downgrade it by cutting out the coffe and ice cream for a $1.45 lesser, to suit your palate and your purse. \r
One of the few restaurants offering a choice of gluten free italian fare, oupon requesting for it ahead. Kid friendly, as they have a host of italian pastas. The kid` menu also has an applesauce/salad, the main course and the ice cream (Vanilla or spumani) for as low as $4.95. On the whole, it was a pleasant experience without the feeling that you have spent a fortune fot it!!! \r
We would definitely go there again...
Pros: Ambience, Parking, Value for Money.
