Our Story

The Old Spaghetti Factory

The first Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant on 2nd & Pine in Downtown Portland, Oregon.

For nearly 100 years, the Dussin family has shared our love of food and good company with millions of guests across America.   Guss and Sally Dussin opened the first Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant in Portland, Oregon on January 10, 1969.  They knew that honesty, dignity, respect, hard work, and guest satisfaction were the recipe for dining success.

A meal at The Old Spaghetti Factory is an experience. We invest meticulous attention to our décor so our guests feel as though they’re stepping into another world. Every location is adorned with antique lighting, intricate stained glass displays and an old-fashioned trolley car that doubles as a dining hall.

Nearly every item on The Old Spaghetti Factory’s menu is made on-site, from scratch, using fresh ingredients. Unlike most restaurants, when you order our entrées, we serve you a complete meal, which includes bread, soup/salad, a drink and dessert. And with our award winning kids’ menu, special treats and fun activities, we encourage families to feel at home in our restaurants.

The Old Spaghetti Factory is still family owned and operated and we welcome your family to join ours for a memorable dining experience.
