This is another place that we visit when we are in the Orange County area. The food is consistently good. Love the pasta with Mizithra cheese - only place I can get it. Service and the cost of a full meal always great too. When you are done with your meal you can cross the blvd. and take a nice... More

The family still loves it. The kids have a lot to look at and they enjoy the spaghetti. Prices are more than fair and service is good.

I am glad that I got the chance to experience the Old Spaghetti Factory at THIS location. My son got to choose the restaurant since we were visiting him while he is studying at UC Irvine. Compared to the other location I had been to, it was leaps and bounds ahead. The environment was very nice and the decor was... More

I hate to admit it but I went here in the 70's which dates me. All these years later it is still open serving a basic delicious consistently good Italian meal. My favorite is the " managers favorite " on the menu. It allows you to pick two items and mix it. I get the famous mitzri butter sauce and... More

Normally i don't trash places on Trip Advisor, but Dang. I'll Just List It: 1. Had a party of 15 reserved for 7PM, got seated at 7:45 2. Sat for almost 30 minutes before drinks were ordered. 3. Drinks took another 20 minutes (coffee took over an hour). 4. Food order was taken a full hour after seating, salads &... More

Casual place with interesting decor. The food is good, adequate, nicely served. We enjoyed it with my adult daughter and her two friends. A highlight was our waiter doing magic tricks at the table --

The restaurant is nice, great location, decent service. The bread is the only thing that is good here! The food is disgusting and is not fresh and the ingredients do not seem all that great! I ordered the shrimp fettucine. The sauce was so thick and gluey, nothing like the menu had promised. My husband ordered the meat lovers and... More

It has been about 18 years since I last ate at The Old Spaghetti Factory. I have not missed much. The food is average, nothing to shout about. Service was very good and the decor in Newport Beach is fun, especially for kids. The prices are high for a plate of meat sauce on top of noodles that you can... More

The most tender chicken I've ever eaten! This is a casual, familyfriendly place with cheerful(!) waiters and good priceworthy food.
