The place is a throw back to a Victorien era with its lamps and booth seating not to mention the railway car. The pasta is good (a 7 out of 10) the servings are big and the choice of toppings is yours; I like the Managers Speacial Half Rich Meat Sauce and Half Brown Butter with Mitz Chesse (the chesse they mix there). I use to go to the one at Jack London Square but it's gone so I drive from Alameda Island to Concord and its worth it.

Pros: Always Friendly Atmosphere

Cons: Can get very very Busy

YUCK!!! Maybe I am an Italian food snob being of Italian decent, but if you like Chef Boyardee, you'll probably like the Spaghetti Factory. Went 2x with small children, but could not stomach a return visit. Yes, pizza from anywhere would be a hell of lot better!!!!!

It's been ages since I'd been there. I forgot why I stopped going. . .but just recently it came to me . . .the spaghetti sauce (the main attraction) tastes like tomato paste. This says it all. Why do they call it the Old Spaghetti Factory? I wonder.

If you love good Italian you won't like this place BUT if you just want cheap Italian this would work.

Pros: cheap

Cons: everthing else

The food is probably average, but you can't beat the portions, the price, or the great ice cream. This is a great place for kids and larger parties...

I have had bad service from here before, but not so bad that it tainted my opinion of the place, I felt the other reviews were a bit harsh. One guy said it took him 20 minutes to get his food... Well I have to say 20 Minutes is fair timing for an extreamly busy italian resturant!!! I think the prices are fair. You get Salad, a never ending supply of Fresh Baked Bread with both Garlic Butter and Regular your Entree and then Ice cream at the end for dessert. All of this for an average price of $9.50 per person... I like this place and will forever be a patron.

Pros: Yummy But Nothing Fancy Just the Right Kind Of Atmosphere For A Family

Cons: Sometimes ca be a long wait time to eat dinner...

The last time I went to OSF was 5+ years ago and my memory of it wasn't so great. I remember it being not all that delicious. But, I was in town and some friends decided to give it a try again. We should have stuck to my gut instinct from my previous experience! Definitely not a recommended place! I ordered the baked lasagna, my friends - ravioli and spaghetti. The main course took FOREVER to come. 20 minutes from the time we got our salads. During these 20 minutes, we also got 3 different servers! Unheard of! 3 different servers and no food! By the time our food came, we were already tired of waiting. The food was bland and there was nothing special about it. Not worth waiting 20 minutes for. My "baked" lasagna didn't seem baked at all. Just layers of pasta thrown together with sauce. No melting, hard cheese on top, which is the best part of the lasagna! Definitely disappointed and would never go back...ever again.

I've tasted better pastas in restaurants not even specializing in Italian fare or pasta. The taste is not exceptional but it's ok as pasta goes.
The only positive point I experienced was that the servings are quite large. Enough to fill you up and then bring home for another meal.
Reception varies depending on who's at the reception desk. No problems with service. Seating usually is not a problem because the place is big.
Ambiance-wise, the railroad theme tables and chairs is interesting at first but the novelty wears off after subsequent visits.

Cons: Not fine dining pasta taste
