We visited Old Spaghetti factory while on a trip to San Jose. Our overall experience was very good. They have a separate gluten friendly menu. You get a choice of about 4-5 different sauces to put over GF noodles. Not a HUGE variety, but still finding GF pasta is always a win in my book!! I have to avoid red sauce due to GERD so my only choice was the Mizithra and Brown butter sauce for my pasta. It was good but a little bland. I did request some lemon slices and used that to help pep it up a little bit. It also came with a side salad. They have 2 GF salad dressings - balsamic vinaigrette or a creamy pesto dressing. I went with the creamy pesto. Once again, the salad was good but not great. The portion sizes are generous. The prices are reasonable. Dinner for 2 (2 pasta dishes with 2 side salads, no drinks or desserts) was $45. Overall, we had good service and good food at a reasonable price.

Staff were knowledgeable. They informed me that their restaurant is not a gluten free facility but they will do their best to eliminate as much cross contamination by making the food in a separate pan. The salad, Alfredo pasta, chicken, and ice cream were yummy. I did not get sick either so that was a plus. Would probably go back here at some point if I was in the area for pasta.

Went there last month and had the GF pasta. Hour later I had a horrible itch and hives on my arms and chest. Eat at your own risk.

Not my favorite place for gluten free pasta. But it's a nice option if you're downtown. I certainly won't turn it down if I'm in the area. (My fav gf pasta place is Willow Street Pizza)

We had a very enjoyable dinner and experience. Jasmine was knowledgeable, attentive and so kind. Salad, pasta and chicken were all gluten-free! Ask for gf menu.
