Never had a bad experience at The Old Spaghetti Factory. For years I have been getting the Mzithra Cheese a la Homer dish. When OSF started selling the cheese, I finally got tired of the Mzithra dish because we were able to make a similar dish at home. I started ordering the spinach tortellinis with alfredo sauce and those are awesome. The prices have always been just right, never like they are trying to rip you off.

Was not really digging my family's choice this night with all the options in the area. But turned out pretty good. Didn't give it five stars but a well deserved four . Food was good service was fair. And to be honest turned out to be the better of the dining we had in our two day stay ..

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.

Been to many OSF locations over the years and appreciate the consistency. This visit the food was simply off the mark for both my wife and I. Meat sauce and alfredo sauce just didn't taste right and the Italian sausage I had was quite undercooked. A manager offered half off our meals and the service was okay. We had a trainee that wasn't quite up to speed despite being shadowed by a more experienced server.

When I was eating in the Factory last week my busser Shane was very rude and my server Grace was almost shouting at us when taking our order. A very unpleasant experience.
