Do you have a delicious recipe using our signature Mizithra Cheese? Now you can view, post, and share Mizithra recipes all on our new website:

The Old Spaghetti Factory's Mizithra Cheese blend is a toothsome treat for any cheese lover. The recipe for our distinctive blend has remained unchanged since our opening in 1969, making spaghetti with Mizithra Cheese and Browned Butter our most popular dish.

It's one of the places I like to go for lunch in downtown. The lunch specials (choice of soup, salads, or pastas) are offered with a fresh, hot bread & a choice of soup or sald (with dressing). The prices are very reasonable, especially for the location. The quantity of food for the price is excellent. This is a nice place to sit down and enjoy a meal and company.

The service and food are terrible. The women at the front desk are a bunch of zombies with Old Spaghetti brains -- they would do racial profiling, like those bigots in the South. The food is terrible, tons of butter and salt. The place should be shut down for the safety of the public.

Wow! Can't believe I've lived in San Diego my whole life and just went to this place. I am giving 5 stars for it, because it is a whole package. The interior of this place is gorgeous, and was so fun to be in. Beautiful decor. The staff was friendly, quick and attentive. We had a large group of 8 and were seated immediately with our reservation and weren't crammed in a too small table either. The menu is great, lots of options and available customizations and it is great that all meals include salad and a scoop of ice cream at the end. A full meal, drink, salad, entree and dessert, ended up at about $15 per person. Will be back for some delicious pasta at amazingly great prices.

The service was way too slow and not really helpful. They were most preoccupied minding their own business than telling us not to worry about the long wait. The lasagna I ordered tasted bad and was expensive.
