A word from The Old Spaghetti Factory - Toronto
Originally a Blacksmith Shop, built in 1898, this huge old warehouse was converted into a 600 seat restaurant in 1971. Filled with a fabulous collection of antiques and truly unique artifacts and is now known as the famous Old Spaghetti Factory. This unique restaurant is complete with high ceilings, skylights, antique elevator, streetcar, numerous interesting nooks and crannies, original stained glass windows from Europe, gas lamps, a 100 year old carousel and countless other intriguing antiques and artifacts (Ever dined in a streetcar or a king size bed?) And if this is not enough, add great food, affordable prices and fast and friendly service and you've got a truly entertaining and enjoyable dining experience.Continued

  • "My siblings and I took our mum here for mother's day this year. It was enjoyable except for the constant interruptions from multiple other tables' children running around and climbing over the booths. Good family restaurant, just not recommended if you want a night out with your sweetheart. "

  • "Thank you Doreen for taking SUCH great care of our disorganized lunch group of 12 people. You were amazing. The food was delicious and there was lots of it. The service was spectacular. The homemade meatballs were incredible. We'll see you again soon!"

  • "One of the servers knocked down my jacket from my chair, however, the manager thought that it was not a big deal and being so rude to us.......bad client service that I did not expect!"

  • "We haven't been to OSF in quite a few years and decided to drop by again for a quick lunch. We always liked how interesting it looks inside, not your typical restaurant decor. Standard entree size was small (we didnt opt to upgrade), taste was fair (We make a better lasagna/pasta but taste is subjective). What we found lacking is service. The waiter had too many tables and was never around. Forgot to bring us cheese when he asked if we wanted it after bringing our entrees. A quick lunch turned into a 2 hour session. We paid the bill and he just took the machine back and kept talking to the other table ignoring us."

  • "There are so many things to look at on the walls and around you that keep the kids entertained. The service is good and the food is not amazing, but good. It's worth the trip if you have kids under 12."

  • "Seated in an old streetcar, I enjoyed the bizarre atmosphere. Manicotti was tasty whereas fire grilled Italian sausage was more ordinary. But spaghetti were al d'ente! Our waitress was delightful, very friendly and efficient. Not a gastronomic restaurant but a warm place to share good and simple food."

  • "No the food at the Old Spaghetti Factory isn't good. It's extremely basic. But it's not awful or inedible, despite what foodie snobs seem to say. Frankly it doesn't seem to have changed since the last time I was there some 20 years ago. Great service an enjoyable evening."

  • "We came in at 930p and apparently it seemed like amateur night at the karaoke club here at the Spaghetti Factory. The music was painfully uncharacteristic to the ambiance that we grew up in. This place is for families but if wanting to get the evening crowd by this band, the results would not align with the goal. Get a lounge band instead of this grunge music that is quite inappropriate for the crowd at the Esplanade. Even C'est What? around the corner doesn't have this type of music. Though I come here for the spaghetti, I would know not to come in when the band arrives. Call ahead to make sure you are able to hear yourself."

  • "What an amazing server we had, Josh (JP). We had taken our daughter for her 16th birthday, he made her feel so special. The staff was so freindly from the minute we walked in the door to minute we walked out. The food was not bad, the surrounding & staff made it better. Pricing, reasonable, we did not leave hungry. Would we go back, yah, I think so."
