The Old Spaghetti Factory Restaurant Review

: The Old Spaghetti Factory won't win any awards for innovation, but its formula of salad, bread and pasta has served it well. Typically located in an historic building, such as a former train depot or schoolhouse, this outpost has broken with tradition. Its rich wood paneling and lofty feel embraces a more upscale setting, coupled with an expanded menu and a hike in prices. The "complete meals," which include soup or salad, fresh-baked bread, a pasta entrée, a non-alcoholic beverage and a scoop of spumoni ice cream, are still the best deal and continue to satisfy the masses. However, the appetizer menu might appeal to a broader audience, with generous servings of olive tapenade and grilled bread for dipping. Entrée salads include the BLT --- just like the sandwich, sans the bread --- while the jumbo crab ravioli tossed in a pesto Alfredo sauce is one of the signature pastas. The familiar red trolley is present, but the ghost of Bing Crosby’s Restaurant & Piano Bar, the space’s former tenant, seems to linger.
