OSF is right down the street from our office. We have been eating here for 13 years for lunch, meetings and celebrations. Every pasta dish we have tried has always been spot on.

The OSF in Vegas closed a few years ago so it's been a while since we had the pleasure of dining at this chain. The service was very good and the atmosphere was very nice.

The decor, table and chairs were comfortable and inviting. Our server, I think it was Griffin or Griffith, was great...he was friendly, courteous, attentive... More

My friend wanted to go there on a Thurs. nite at 4:58 PM after seeing Shen Yun at the Performing Arts Center. They told us there would be a wait because all of the staff wasn't there yet! It took 20 minutes for them to seat two groups of 12 & 14 and a few couples before us. We ordered... More

Great food very reasonable price. Great for families and party’s. Spaghetti is great. Get the managers special hearty portion if you like spaghetti. Take home what you don't finish.

The Old Spaghetti Factory has been and will always be one of my favorite go to restaurants; even before I was married. We have been creating fond memories for more than 35 years. The menu, the service, and the positive, happy faces are the best! Thank you Old Spaghetti Factory. We love you!
