Each time I’ve had a great experience here. They are very cautious with me having celiac and make sure that my pasta is cooked separately. I go here often and absolutely love the pasta and salad!

The manager was very condescending and made sure to tell me that they aren't a gluten friendly restaurant, they just have gluten free pasta

I have had the gluten free pasta at this particular Spaghetti factory. I ordered it with the alfredo sauce which they say is a gluten free option. All they do is throw extra cheese onto the pasta with no alfredo sauce. This is the only Spaghetti factory I have gone to that does this. Highly disappointing..the gluten free with alfredo sauce is kind of expensive to only have cheese and no sauce. I will never eat at this particular Spaghetti factory again!

I'm always afraid to have gf pasta in a restaurant because of cross-contamination possibilities, but we ate here last week anyway, and it was delicious! The menu is clearly marked and my server and the hostess were both very knowledgeable about what was gf. My server even verified the cooking process to ease my mind. I was on vacation and did not want to get sick. It was simple, but yummy food. Best of all, no sickness later. And they give you ice cream for dessert. GF of course!

Mediocre food but they have a GF menu and food comes out with a flag, so you know your getting the right meal. I'd go across the street to Cheesecake Factory or Roy's if you are in the neighborhood, but if you have a GF kid looking for Mac n cheese it works. Staff is kind.

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.

The food was just ok, but the staff seemed knowledgeable, and my food did arrive with a “gluten friendly” marker.

You wouldn’t think a place called the spaghetti factory would have a gluten free menu, but they do.

Plenty of options to choose from.

Definitely not gluten free. The food comes out tagged “gluten friendly”, but it definitely contains gluten or has cross contamination.

I ordered the gluten free Alfredo and salad. I was okay after eating the salad, but once I got partially through the pasta, I felt like I wanted to throw up. I did share with the server I had Celiac Disease and she confirmed that they could accommodate and it was made separately. It tasted like they used the pasta water for the Alfredo sauce. I do not recommend this to anyone even if you call and ask which I did.

Don’t trust the GF claims. Either they don’t monitor cross contamination or just flat messed up our order.
