The Old Spaghetti Factory Restaurant Review

: Those looking for a filling, inexpensive Italian meal need turn no further than this national chain. The midtown location is housed in a former railroad depot, the dining room full of antiques and historic charm. Starters include Gorgonzola dip with sausage, meatball sliders and Bay shrimp crostini. Mains run the gamut, from ravioli and tortellini to lasagna and chicken Marsala. Or, choose your noodle and sauce, which includes marinara, white clam or browned butter and Mizithra. All meals are served with bread, salad, beverage and ice cream. Kids’ meals and gluten-free menus are also available.
