When in the city on a family outing to the Hockey Hall of Fame and the aquarium we made reservations for an early dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory. As a group of 16 adults and children you would expect some delay in service, but...More

The Service was great! The food was, as always, tasty. The atmosphere was warm and cozy. From one coast to the other, Old Spaghetti Factory does not disappoint.

We made reservations and just had to wait a few minutes on arrival. The food is good as expected. Our server was very friendly. the décor is really something else, fun and lots tolook at....but it's getting dated.

We really enjoyed eating supper here. The spaghetti was the best we've tasted anywhere. It's certainly a kid-friendly place but also nice for couples who don't want to break the bank.More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

Description
A meal at The Old Spaghetti Factory is an experience. We invest meticulous attention to our decor so our guests feel as though they're stepping into another world. Every location is adorned with antique lighting, intricate stained glass displays and an old-fashioned trolley car that doubles as a dining hall. Nearly every item on The Old Spaghetti Factory's menu is made on-site, from scratch, using fresh ingredients. Unlike most restaurants, when you order our entrees, we serve you a complete meal, which includes bread, soup or salad, and dessert. And with our famous kid's menu, special treats and fun activities, we encourage families to feel at home in our restaurants. The Old Spaghetti Factory is still family owned and operated and we welcome your family to join ours for a memorable dining experience.
