Excellent food! We had the crab ravioli, and the chicken breast fettuccine. They were nice portions, and pay to park right next to the building. We also had excellent service! We would definitely eat there again!

The food was good. We called in for a reservation but it was pretty empty when we arrived so that probably wasn’t needed. A little pricey for spaghetti but all in all it was good.

Had dinner on a weeknight. Covid procedures were marginal. Hand sanitizer at the front was empty. Several staff members with masks on but below the nose. Our waiter was attentive and wearing his mask properly. I ordered spaghetti and my wife lasagna. Salad and appetizer...were delivered promptly. The salad looked like it had been dumped from a bag. The entrees came in short order. The spaghetti was fine but nothing special. My wife said the lasagna was quite good.More

During COVID-19, there were lots of tables blocked off. But we enjoyed our food and our experience. Service was good, and the old standbys on the menu were tasty.

This was the first time I visited in a few years. The food was good and so was the service. I went with a group of friends and we all a good time. They did a good job of implementing social distancing and such, so...if that is something you are concerned about at this time, there is no need to worry. I would recommend to anyone looking for a place to eat downtown.More

We had no wait and out waitress was great. We all had different food and it was all good. Spumante ice cream was the perfect end to a good meal.

It took a bit of time to be seated, but then it was good food! Not the most high class place in Indy, but well worth it! LOVE their Italian sodas!!

Great downtown location, cool building, and reasonably priced food for a family. The upstairs bar is not accessible for those with limited mobility.

We took our son and his friends to The Old Spaghetti Factory for his birthday before going upstairs to The Escape Room. The food was excellent and service was an A+

Less than an hour. That was our time and we had a group of twenty two. Be aware that restrooms are many steps downstairs. If rest accessibility is an an issue, you may want to consider an alternative.

There are parking meters on Meridian and a parking garage about two blocks South of the restaurant. You could park at Circle Center, but it would be a little bit of a walk too.
