Another, great Italian place to eat. I'm always amazed at the amount of food we get, whenever I come here. I love the ambiance, the service and the food. We've been coming here, since they opened, thanks to our Daughter. My favorite, is still the lasagna, but I'm not sure there isn't anything I don't like, that's Italian. I have... More

It seems that this place has been around for about 40 years. There have been changes in ownership, but the food and the atmosphere never seems to change. I've always had a preference for the spaghetti and mizithra cheese. Well worth the occasional drive from the 'burbs into central Phoenix for a good spaghetti dinner.

The Old Spaghetti Factory is a fun place to take visitors, family or friends. There is a train car that the kids love to eat in and it is a great plaace to take pictures. Lunch is a good deal and dinners aren't bad either. Can't fo wrong here.

I have eaten at the Old Spaghetti Factory many times over the years. In December I coordinated an event for the retirees where I worked for 30 years. We had good food and good service. They have individual rooms that allow parties of about 12 to 25 depending on the size of the group. They gave us each separate checks... More

Noticed this place while driving around looking for a place for a late lunch early dinner. We more than pleasantly surprised. One of the coolest places ever. Even had an old trolley car in the middle of the dinning room.. The food and drinks we had were very good. Would recommend to anyone for any occasion.

My husband and I began enjoying The Old Spaghetti Factory when we first married and were living in Portland. We were excited to discover there are two locations in the greater Phoenix area. The food is reasonably priced and consistent. Nothing fancy but very enjoyable. We love their Mizithra Cheese pasta dish. It's delish!!!

I have been going to the Old Spaghetti Factory since I was a kid. Although I am not much of a pasta fan anymore, my 7 year old daughter loves going here. She really likes going to the one on Central as opposed to Chandler and other locations. I am note sure why to tell you the truth as all... More

Once in a while when we have business downtown Phx., we give in to the deliciousness of the Old Spaghetti Factory. It's amazing to me how they can still serve wonderful spaghetti in that old building that's been there forever and make it taste so good. The only reason we don't frequent it more often is that anything we order... More
