The wait for a party of 6 on a Saturday night took almost 2 hrs. Once we got seated, we ordered our drinks, which came right away. We ordered our meals, the only complaint was the portion, some plates had more than a person could eat, and others were left hungry. There should be the same amount on every order.... More

Hadn't been here in 10+ years so decided to introduce our kids to OSF. They loved it! The menu and atmosphere are fun and the food isn't bad.

We have dined at Old Spaghetti Factory locations in Atlanta and Nashville and have enjoyed our experiences over the years. Those locations are now gone. We were excited to find one (by accident) in Denver. We saw the location during a carriage ride and decided to have dinner there. We were seated immediately. The service was good. Drinks were filled... More

The same menu, but the prices have gone up. What else would you expect. The portions of certain items has gotten smaller. The decor remains the same.

The last 2 out of 3 times we have visited have been a total disappointment to say the very least. We celebrated my birthday at the Downtown Denver location in July. The service was horrible. Our order was messed up, came out in pieces, and the server was totally overwhelmed. We were charged for items he dropped off at the... More

We were in town for a wedding and had a "rehearsal dinner/meet and greet" for both families here. We had more people show up that what originally was planned for but they just put them at tables right next to us. I know that I personally ordered my food with a couple of changes to it and they got it... More

It's the only restaurant I know of where you can get Mizithra cheese on your spaghetti. It's their signature dish and the only thing I ever get. I especially like it with the chicken Marsala and with the garlic, bacon and mushrooms. My daughter loves to sit in the train car and go when there is someone making balloon animals... More

Our tour group got there just before it actually opened for business and we had called ahead and placed our orders. The interior was beautiful especially the old trolley car in one room

First ate hear in 1974 - and have returned many times through the years. Consistently delicious food at reasonable prices, in a wonderful environment. The spaghetti with Mizithra cheese is my all-time favorite - that, and the low amount on the bill at the end of the meal! The chicken marsala (served with spaghetti and Mizithra cheese) makes for a... More

Our server was excellent, and handled our large group well. I remember coming here when I was a teenager, and was glad to be back again. The prices are great, and you receive quite a bit of food for your money. They offer warm bread, soup or salad, your main dish, and the spumoni. Any dish with the mizithra cheese... More
