The Old Spaghetti Factory

We recently visited an old time favorite: The Old Spaghetti Factory in Fairfield, OH.   The downtown location closed years ago and we miss the convenience for sure.  This is family fun dining at its best.  There is a train car inside the restaurant and the overall atmosphere is large and nostalgic with dark wood trim, high ceilings and grand furniture.

Dinners come complete with bread, soup or salad, a beverage (hot or iced tea, milk or coffee) and their signature spumoni ice cream.  One of our favorite choices is the mizithra cheese and browned butter but since I don’t like to decide on just one sauce I love their pasta sauce options Potpourri (4 different sauces) and my favorite the Manager’s Favorite: a choice of two sauces.  Their spaghetti is 100% durum semolina or you can also choose angel hair, whole wheat or gluten free pasta.  And if you need a completely gluten free meal, they have that too.  I also spotted spaghetti squash, which I love, on their sides menu.  There are plenty of other menu choices and the average price is $9.99.

Children love this place for all the same reasons the adults do.  Their kids menu is similar to the adult menu but smaller and with a few options like applesauce, apple juice or grilled cheese.  If you have a small appetite you will have plenty to share from the adult entrée.  They also have a book called Spaghetti where you can follow Freddy’s adventures around the world on a spaghetti noodle.  The books cost $11.99 which include one kid’s meal ($5.25) and proceeds benefit the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

The Old Spaghetti Factory is only open for dinner during the week, lunch and dinner on Saturday/Sunday, offers call ahead seating, is reasonably priced and portioned, offers healthy choices with a fun atmosphere.  All I’m really not sure of is why we don’t visit it more often!
