Our hand rolled meatballs served with our Italian marinara sauce and topped with fresh parmesan cheese.
Our signature Mizithra Cheese is a deliciously salty cheese that is grated over spaghetti and drizzled with Browned Butter. Our homemade pesto is a mix of basil, pine nuts and almonds all blended with our Alfredo sauce.
Add chicken or shrimp. A creamy creation with prawns, scallops and mushrooms sauteed with our spinach and egg fettuccine noodles and Alfredo sauce. A hand breaded chicken breast, fried to a golden brown, topped with marinara sauce and melted parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.
The Old Spaghetti Factory. With the addition of a new manager, things have been changing every week and it's clear this person isn't experienced enough to be in that position. Hours have been cut drastically and too many people have been hired. Not the ideal first job. Definitely not a positive and happy environment. My favorite part of my job was meeting and having great conversations with customers who go to local events. One thing the old spaghetti factory taught me was how to deal with difficult people in a calm manner.
Everyone gets mad at everyone and blames other people for their problems. Managers were not nice to the costumers but the employees were. It gets stressful but the chaos is almost fun. Wonderful workplace with family atmosphere.
I was hired from an open interview and was very excited. I worked there for a few months until I ended up in a wheelchair for four months. I was not allowed to return to the workplace until after I was out of the chair.
I Love Old Spaghetti Factory! - The Old Spaghetti Factory
I ended up homeless and on the streets due to my inability to return to the job and no other place seemed interested in me working there. Eventually I found a new job and got out of the chair and never returned. This was a very simple job and the Old setting was gorgeous which made it a nice place to work, but that sums it up.
The managers were rude and it trickled down onto what should have been the 'team'. The matriarch at another table took charge of slicing the hot loaf of sourdough bread for her family. Later, I saw the same woman unabashedly filling her glass of red wine with ice.
Group Take Out
This is the kind of place where that was perfectly acceptable. Actually, that should be acceptable anywhere, but some upscale spots might frown on icing down your vino. Everywhere were tables filled with kids. At one table, I counted eight girls, all around 11 or We were in and out, even with dessert and coffee, in well under an hour.

All dinners come with a salad, which is your basic chopped iceberg with some romaine, shredded red cabbage and carrots. It was served chilled and crisp, though. In the dressing department, the Italian lacked zip, but the creamy pesto had a pleasant kick. It was rich, but the basil flavor was distinct. The honey-mustard was the best fat-free dressing I ever tasted in a restaurant. It had a good balance of sweet and mildly spicy. I chose the mushroom sauce and the mizithra cheese with brown butter. Other pasta toppings include a white clam sauce and spaghetti with meatballs or Italian sausage.
The pasta was perfectly cooked, but the sauces were benign. The marinara with mushrooms tasted faintly metallic and was sorely lacking in the garlic department.
