We just wanted a light lunch and we got so much more. We could not believe the transformation as we walked in from the street and saw the stunning decor. We were welcomed and taken to a booth, and nothing was too much trouble. Our minestrone was hearty and tasty, and the salads, one a lunchtime BLT and the other... More

My husband and I were in Nashville for a short vacation, while walking around downtown, we decided to stop for lunch at the Old Spagetti Factory. First thing about this resto is the place itself, large spacious and deco is really cool, they even have a old trolley car right inside the restaurant fitted with table. We had great service...

Always fun to visit. Prices are great! Meals include bread, soup or salad, and a perfect amount of spumoni ice cream (it has chocolate, strawberry, and pistachio streaks in it). Kids love the trolley inside where they do have tables to sit. Couples love the romantic, fancy atmosphere. But no dress code. Casual! Stop by at eat while downtown. It's... More

Positives: Bread and deco was great. Cons: slow slow service and food is not so good. Olive Garden is better. I was disappointed.

We sat in the bar area near a window--great place to people watch. The bartender/server was GREAT--funny, knowledgable, efficient. Service was wonderful. Had spaghetti with marinara, lasagne--both were very good. Offers "3 course meal"--salad or soup/ entree/ice cream. Great food, drinks, experience.

Four hot hungry Brits arrived here on Thursday lunchtime. It's not exciting from outside, but go through the double doors, and it's fabulous. First of all, it's cool...bliss! Then, the building opens up in front of you and it's absolutely amazing. Several different spaces, all magnificently and exuberantly styled, with antique furniture, wonderful varied lighting, and quirky touches like a... More

Looked online for a family friendly restaurant in downtown Nashville. Took a chance and tried it. Short wait even on Saturday night. Food and service were excellent and price was a surprising value. Everyone loved it. Only drawback is lack of affordable parking in area.

We went on a Saturday night. It was very busy, but we were seated much earlier than expected. Our waiter was very professional and attentive. The food came out quickly and was very good. I recommend the chicken fettuccine. Most meals are $10-15 and include 3 courses. Neat environment. Recommended.

What a great atmosphere at this restaurant. We didn't know what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and it was reasonably priced...I would certainly recommend this restaurant.
