There were so many positives about this place! The ambiance, the gorgeous stained glass "windows", the simply amazing wait staff, and delicious spaghetti! Oh - and I have to mention.....the cost! That was an added treat! Would definitely recommend!

We were here for a murder mystery dinner. I was expecting the food to be mediocre, but I was pleasantly surprised. Enough so, that I would come back and bring the kids. Hubby had a sausage pasta, I had the vegetarian option which was a marinara sauce with mushrooms. Our group was 50+, but the food came out timely, and... More

It is a very popular place. Many tables of 8-10 people celebrating. The food is good, big portions, and good prices. There is a 3-dishes menu option very convenient with ice-cream.

Last night my girlfriend and I went to the Old Spaghetti Factory in Nashville. We had been to this location several time, about 4-5 times a year. And last night was an excellent time.

We experienced a trainee server, and the service was fantastic. We were amused by some other guests who had a few gripes, but loved watching the staff responding to their needs. Food was great, atmosphere was great too, we were tucked away in a corner.

The service was top notch. The food was exceptional. I had chicken alfredo and my wife had the spaghetti. Both were excellent. The prices are very reasonable, surprisingly. The atmosphere makes you feel like you are a millionaire. I recommend it if you are in the area. Right beside broadway.

I was visiting Nashville for my granddaughter's birthday. The Old Spaghetti Factory has always been one of her favorite restaurants, and once again we had a wonderful time. The food is always delicious (my favorite is the Mizithra Cheese and Browned Butter), and the service is always good.

Our first time getting to go to the spaghetti factory while in Nashville. We ate gluten free with no issues and it was just the right amount of food and it was delicious. Our server was wonderful too.
