The old spaghetti factory is a st louis tradition. I remember going here with my family when i was a little boy and now i bring my own family here! The pasta is simply the best in st. louis. Their sodas are top notch also. The decor is gorgeous - they just don't put as much thought in modern buildings! You cant go wrong with the old spaghetti factory from the price to the decor to the staff!

they have very good food at a pretty good price. I reccomend this to anyone who has a italian taste bud :) they are polite and if by chance they do have an issue with anything be it service food or anything they will go out of thier way to fix it,
it is a very packed place and woth the wait for the most part.
The service can be a bit slow at times they need to keep a few more people on staff, but there is almost always a wait to be seated, being that busy you can not have a server watching you every minute i suppose.

Oh and any long island ice tea lovers IT IS A MUST TRY from here :)

The Old Spaghetti Factory is a must dine to Saint Louis visitors. Located in historic downtown Saint Louis, the old decor and structure of this restaurant will make you explore the history of this delicate site. Offering a variety of dishes, the pasta by far will go above and beyond your expectations. The profession staff and world class food treat you to a dining experience that you will NEVER forget. This is the place my fiance and I love to go for a fun evening. The location is great in downtown in Laclede's Landing offering many activities after dinner. We love the food and for the price we just can't beat it. The atmosphere is unbelievable with old decor and sets a romantic mood. We visit the restaurant on many occasions and continue to go back for its excellence.

This resturant is located in a beatiful old building on the river front. The food is awesome, ( and its not just spaghetti!) This place is usually packed on weekend nights. Make reservations!

The Old Spaghetti Factory on Laclede's landing is a nice little place to go for some good spaghetti. The breadsticks are to die for and the Laclede's Landing atmostphere is like stepping back in time. It's convenient location just off of the Metrolink also make it very accommodating.

PROS: Great Spaghetti - Great Location!!
CONS:

You get a TON of food for a price that is right in line with any other restaurant. You get a drink, your main meal, salad or soup, rolls, and ice cream all for the price that you can just get a main meal somewhere else. It may not be the best quality italian food in stl, but it is still certainly very tasty! Nice, unique atmosphere. Big establishment so I've never had a wait a real long amount of time for a table.

I was no where near impressed with the food. The establishment was picture perfect, beautiful, and exciting. The food is where the problem was. The meat sauce for the spaghetti horrible. My girlfriend had chicken marsela, which she sent back. The lasagna was plain and had that disasterous meat sauce. But the salad dressing for the salads was great. I would not recommend this place, for food, to anyone.

We go to the location in the Chesterfield Valley. I still love the manager's special, with meat sauce and mazithra cheese. The Old Spaghetti Factory is just a great value. Good food, good price. Highly recommended for families.

The service was very slow and we weren't even there at a busy time of day. There were empty tables all aound us, but it still took 20 minutes to just get water. The food was mediocre at best. The building was beautiful, but between the service and just ok food, I won't be heading back anytime. There are much better places in St. Louis to go eat...

This was my first trip ever to St.Louis and I had a blast. We had a long wait because we were late getting there and there was numerous very large parties there that evening. Eventhough there was a long wait the bar was easaily accessable for soft drinks and such. Once we were seated we were prom;ptly greeted by our server and it just so happened that it was his first nite and we were his very first table. A tabke of 12 women at that. The server remained pleasent thhrough out the whole night and the Manager checked in on us quite frequently. The food was great. The only thing that I was not pleased with was the dip that came with the flat bread. It was a little to salty for me. But all in all we had a great time. I will definately go back there again.

We have visited the OSF in the past and usually had a decent time. Not this time. They re-opened with a new menu and apparently an entirely new staff who had no clue how to handle a large group. We arrived at 5:10 pm and had no service until 5:30 when the bus boy filled our waters. At 5:45 our waitress showed up and we informed her that we were in a rush, we were taking our kids to a concert at 7:00 and wanted to leave by 6:30. Our food arrived at 6:20 and they failed to make three our dishes, one being a grilled cheese sandwich. After asking for the remainder of our food and our checks, our waitress did not return until 6:45 and still did not have all of our food or our checks. After finally getting our checks and again indicating that were extremely late and could she process them quickly. After 10 minutes we had to physically track down someone to determine what was taking so long and were told that "you are in line behind other credit cards". Totally unacceptable. I am telling everyone I know about this ordeal and if you are ever going to eat there and need to get to a show or something, I would avoid this location at all cost.

A big group of my family ate here after a long day at the zoo. It's one of those places that wants to send the customers out saying "Wow, it was so great, they gave us a whole loaf of bread rather than biscuits or rolls!" Big deal. Any way, the food was extremely subpar. I got the chicken fettucini dish and like another reviewer said, Fazoli's (Italian fast food chain) does it better. The others were also not impressed. However, you can eat here for fairly cheap. Then again, why would you want to? This restaurant is highly overrated. In other words, DONT EAT HERE.

A group of friends and myself met here for a evening of good Italian food. It had been years since I had been at the restaurant. We were seated quickly and greeted by an excellant server but the food was absolutely horrible. I ordered the Spaghetti and meatballs. The dish had very little sauce. The meatballs not only looked bad but tasted horrible. I would not recommend this restaurant for someone who loves good Italian food.

In short, this place is highly overrated. It sells cheap-grade pasta with unsophisticated sauces to the masses. It's a kids place. It serves "sketty" not spaghetti. It has no business being number 2 in this poll in a city like St. Louis which is rich with Italian restaurants.

Fazoli's does it much better and a lot cheaper. Any number of places has better ambiance. I've been amazed for years that this place is still in business.....any diner with even a small amount of discernment would only step foot in this place one time. Way too many places in St Louis better than this for any of the reasons we go out to eat.

This place is wonderful for young and old alike. I have been going here since i was a child with my family. I live about 200 miles south of st louis and travel to the "Gateway City" about five times a year, and never do i return home w/o hitting The Old Spagetti Factory!!

Good food. Most people would say it would be for familys, but make sure you sit next to a family, when I went there, we got stuck next to a batcholett pary...that should say enough. But they have great food, if you go on a weekend get there early, sometimes it can be a long wait.

We love this place! The atmosphere and food are very good! The usual wait is about 45 minutes on a busy night, but it is worth it. We drive 3 hrs. one way just to eat here. And we usually pay around 35.00 for a family of five( this includes drinks).

I loved the feel of this place. It may not be the most outstanding Italian restaurant you've ever been to, but the food is really good and the atmosphere is great for anything from a family outing to a romantic dinner for two. The pesto salad dressing is a must.
