The Old Spaghetti Factory looks like an stereotypical chain restaurant outlet from the outside, but don’t let the looks guide you wrong. The food is actually pretty good there.
The restaurant is one of the best places to eat in downtown San Diego when travelling with children. The food is easy to eat, and our kids loved the selection. Service is fast, and courteous, and they bring bread to the table pretty much immediately. This helps to control the usual restlessness of small travellers while waiting for the main fare.
The prices are decent, too, and the portions are big enough to satisfy a bigger hunger.
The restaurant was renovated into an old brick building in the Gaslamp Quarter, and the ambience was excellent, somehow fitting to a new world Italian restaurant. Would not work in Italy, though.
