The Old Spaghetti Factory: Riverport Richmond Review

Diana Chan July 6, 2016 Italian, Kid Friendly, Richmond, Two Beakers


The Old Spaghetti Factory is right across from the SilverCity movie theatre. We decided to come here for a quick dinner. We thought we had ample time since it was 50 minutes before the movie. You definitely need at least an hour to dine here.


Complimentary Bread that arrives at the tables is a Italian Sourdough Bread with Whipped Garlic and Plain Butter. A nice way to fill up before waiting for the dishes to arrive.


Clam Chowder is New England style with bacon. Pretty basic and there’s really not much to it.


Crisp Green Salad is the side for the gluten-free menu option. Very simple spinach salad.


Minestrone Soup wasn’t very interesting either, but I got a side to go with my salad, which was interesting.


Cheesy Baked Tomato Chicken Pasta has sautéed chicken breast tossed with gluten free penne in al fresca marinara sauce and baked with mozzarella. My sister thought it was ok.  Nothing too special about it, but it would be better if there was a bit more sauce.


Lasagna has layer upon layers of pasta, meat sauce and mozzarella, ricotta and parmesan cheeses. M enjoyed it as it was meaty and cheesy.


Caesar Salad was what I ordered. I just came back from vacation and really needed a big bowl of salad. It did the trick but I felt it was a bit heavy on the dressing. The dressing was very garlicky and potent.

Overall, the food was mediocre but when you see the food options near the theatre, there really isn’t much.

    I think you should cool it on the buzzword and “gluten free” comments. It’s terribly annoying and overused. Businesses and it seems even blog writers are trying to capitalize on it.

    The next time you consider posting this or that is gluten free, remember this: less than 1 percent of the population who suffer from celiac disease must refrain from bakery products which might contain something that could make them sick. Putting this gluten free label on things that have no connection is a cynical corporate play for those clueless consumers who buy something simply because they think it’s healthy or TRENDY. Red Bull boasts of being gluten-free. So is paint thinner. And of course, if you want to buy into the hype, you’re probably into the kale and Pokemon Go insanity too.
