    I'm not certain, but I think I got cross contaminated here. The waiter seemed knowledgeable about GF, but he did have to check if the Spumoni was GF--it is. The marinara was nothing special. I make better at home, and that's a low bar. I ordered cubed chicken with my pasta. It came on the side, and was delivered by another waiter who didn't know it was for me. Which means, I guess, it wasn't prepared separately? This is the only thing I can think of for why I spent the next three days sick. I might give them another chance since this is a popular choice for my friends. Also whatever brand of GF pasta they use is great!

    Their Alfredo sauce is to die for. Even if you just get the Alfredo sauce to go, I've used it on my own pasta and bread. Delicious!

    I have eaten at the Old Spaghetti Factory for years. Seven years ago I found out I had Celiac Disease and that the Spaghettti Factory had gluten free food. I had no problems the first five times. The last time I was there which was one month ago I became very ill after eating there. I called and talked to someone about it and they said the manager would contact me. The manager never did and I will never eat there again. Too much cross contamination and Heather the manager could care less.

    Their gluten free menu provided plenty of options. The server that we had was not at all competent dealing with gluten free menu items (he asked me if I could have bread!), but the dish, when it arrived, was incredible. I'll be going there whenever I have a craving for Italian, but I hope I don't get the same kid who served us last time.

    The Old Spaghetti Factory has long been one of my favorite restaurants. When I discovered I was celiac it was wonderful to find out they had a gluten-free menu. My favorite is the Mizithra spaghetti with marinated chopped chicken. It's been delicious each time I've had it and I have never had problems with it. I'm not super sensitive though. Cross-contamination is possible, which is why marked it as a "no" for celiac-friendly. Tip: Let the waiter/waitress know you're celiac or allergic/intollerant. They are required to tell the management and a manager will usually make sure everything is okay, and deliver your food themselves. Want to be really sure you're safe? Ask for a manager immediately.

    Their gluten-free pasta is yummy---I enjoyed a 50/50 mix of Mizithra cheese /butter and gluten free Alfredo sauce on their pasta. I like their creamy pesto salad dressing and the spumoni is always a nice treat!!! They make accommodations for preparation of the pasta, and they let you know it's GF by serving your meal with a GF flag-toothpick on the top of it... :-) Their prices aren't bad either... PS their broccoli & mizithra is sadly not GF because of its preparation... Happy Day -

    I have eaten at this particular Old Spaghetti Factor a few times now and have been happy each time. The brown butter sauce and Mizithra cheese is very good. Staff seems very knowledgeable and the menu and website clearly depict what is GF. The menu items will come out with GF flags on them so it is clear. Only reason why I gave 4 stars is I would appreciate more selections on the GF menu. Would definitely recommend to others.

    So I tend to avoid Italian restaurants like the plague because of the usually lacking options that I am provides. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that the Spaghetti Factory offered a gluten free menu, which included not only pasta, but Italian sausage as well. The prices were pretty decent. The meal include salad, bread for the carb lovers, and a choice of spumoni or vanilla ice cream for dessert. The service was good. I do have to give the server props for noticing that there was a blue cheese crumble in my salad and got me a new one prior to serving it.

    Recently diagnosed celiac! I was pleasantly surprised to see TOSF had a gluten free pasta. It tasted fine. My waiter had no idea about GF so my hope would be that they teach the staff. As far as the options it's fine, they left croutons off my salad and made sure not to bring the bread at the same time as my salad and gf meal. Wouldn't be my first choice because I think the menu is already so limited, but I'd go back if others wanted too.

    I got so sick here. I should have guessed that the experience would not end well when our server mixed up the salads when my whole party ordered the same thing. My pasta could not have possible been gluten free. To make it even worse...the server was horrible!!! We sat in the caboose this woman could not be bothered to even bring is water. We had to ask for drinks multiple time before someone brought us something.

    I cannot express how much I love this place. It has the Tacoma historicesque to the building. Their gluten free menu is small, but I have come multiple times and absolutely love their Baked Chicken Meal. It comes with a salad and all their dressings are spectacular. You must try this dish if you can, the mizithra and romano cheese blend with the tomato base sauce on gluten free fusilli noodles and a marinated chicken piece is scrumptious. it also comes with a scoop of icecream, all for just over 10 bucks. The only reason I rated 4 stars is the restaurant isnt GiG trained so the staff and sort of unknowledgable about GF foods at times. Sometimes we have to wait but it is always a pleasant meal and dinner date with my man. :)

    the food is sub par in taste and worse still in that I didn't enjoy the meal and got sick afterwards to boot. if you are truly gluten sensitive save your money and go somewhere else. you shouldn't waste your money when you could probably cook something better in a camp kitchen.

    I don't understand the rave reviews. The waiter was ready to offer me minestrone soup although I had advised him I was gluten free. He was unfamiliar with the gluten free options. I ordered the gf pasta with marinara. Honestly it tasted like something a college student would cook with a bottled sauce. If you want a basic gluten free pasta come here otherwise if you want a hearty meal go elsewhere.

    GF options are delicious and although limited include their classics. You must double and triple check your order when placed and when served they do not have an effective labeling system for the GF dishes leaving the kitchen. One night needed 3 tries to get it right.

    No complaints from a gluten perspective, but I definitely wouldn't want to eat here again given how bad and dull the food was. (I had the baked chicken.) My dining companions had soup that seemed as though it might have come out of a packet, and shouldn't the cheese on pasta be Parmesan? What it was instead was something fake tasting. Really pretty dreadful. Even BJs have better pasta (and that is not saying much: I definitely don't recommend BJs!). Sorry not to be more positive.

    They are a gf fave of ours when we travel since we eat out so much and once we've tried local cuisine and maybe or not dodged the gf bullet, we look for old faithfuls. They never bring the bread, always on point. I get pasta w meat sauce and side of chicken or sausage. Salad w pesto dressing and free spumoni ice cream. This location was not crowded, a quiet respite off Noisy Broadway.

    On 2 trips, the first I ordered gluten free noodles with mizithra and then ordered the same thing on my second trip, and when they gave me curly pasta instead of spaghetti, I asked for the spaghetti that I had the first time and they told me that they don't have nor have they ever had gluten free spaghetti, gluten free only comes in the curly noodles. Therefore the first pasta caused a reaction two days later, which I thought was from something else, but couldn't figure out what it was. Thus if your noodles aren't curly don't eat them!
