OSF has always been one of my favorite restaurants. Each location has unique characteristics but the quality of the food and service is consistent. The atmosphere is not like any other place - the decor is beautiful and interesting and the train car is such a fun feature. I have enjoyed visits with one or two other people as well as with a large group and it has been comfortable and fun either way. The menu has something for everyone and you won't be disappointed! I hope OSF is around for many more years to come.Dietary restrictions: Our daughter has an egg allergy and they are very accommodating to make sure the ingredients are safe for her which we appreciate very much no matter where we are.Kid-friendliness: Kids menu, coloring, crayons, fun drinks and appropriate meals for little ones. High-chairs, booster seats, changing table and plenty of room in the restroom.

I love the old ghetti factory. My favorite dish is "mizithra cheese and brown butter"

It was all delicious. Fettuccine Alfredo, spaghetti with meat sauce, garlic toast, salad with balsamic vinaigrette was really nice. The service and atmosphere was excellent. The bathrooms were very clean and nice!

Came here for dinner on 9/5 and sat in the bar around 6pm. The service was terrible. The dude working in the bar had to be drunk or on something.He forgot our food order twice and had to keep coming back to ask. He was sluring his words, stumbling and just making strange, uncomfortable comments.Then, while he was working on someone else's drink, he started swearing and throwing things behind the bar counter because he couldn't open a container.Our food came out cold after all that.I have never experienced something like this at a restaurant. We just wanted to leave. Called later and spoke to Garrett, the manager, and he apologized.Definitely will never be back.
Took my wife here for her first time on Thursday night. We didn't make a reservation and waited 15 to 20 minutes. The building has a cozy family vibe to it. Nice tables and booths, as well as a trolley cart to enjoy your meal in. The building kinda had an old musty smell to it. The kind an old building has. The service was great, super friendly, and helpful staff. The food was great, too. I strongly recommend the artichoke and spinach dip appetizer.
Food is just okay. It's a pretty. The service was impeccable. I mean they went above and beyond. Others in my party really liked their food. I thought mine was pretty bland. When garlic is in the name of the item you order I think you should be able to taste it. I don't plan to go return for the food unless invited here specifically again. Then I might give it another go.

The food is always the best!!! Totally recommend ??
Food is usually very good. I made the extra drive out of my way to get a special dinner. The online doesn’t have the full menu. I called and the person couldn’t understand basic orders and had to call back and ask if it was for 2 entrees? Clearly it was. Then I got home with 1 bread, 1 salad and 1 ice cream for 2 entrees. Every dish was split into so many different containers, like all sides. Called back and the person on the phone just sat there. I waited for something to be said or done and nothing. Will not be doing any to go from there again.
Yummy food, large portions. They were able to fit our large party last minute too. Shoutout to our server Alexa for such wonderful service and being so accommodating. We appreciate you!
Great atmosphere and service. The place is decorated or designed very nicely inside. However it does seem to be a way to excuse the prices given the quality of the food is poor.
It's been quite a long time since I've been here, and I've got to say it was very delicious!! I took my CTRAN lunch group here (7 of us) and we wanna go back!! Minestrone soup was excellent!!! Spaghetti with various sauce choices was awesome and we had tiramisu, spumoni and my NY cheesecake was delicious!!!

First and last time going here. Just very disappointing. Really bad, honestly.The waiter in training did not know the menu well at all, but neither did his trainer.Nobody explained what the options were or how the menu works there (which ones are three course and which are not, and so forth).For a Tuesday night, took a long time to get seated.The bread, lobster ravioli, clam sauce, and tortellini are okay. Not inspiring but passable.The meat sauce and marinara sauce are not good.The chicken Caesar salad is overtly terrible (hot wilty leaves, way too fishy dressing, and the chicken is just such large bland chunks it could make you gag). Worst chicken Caesar salad I've had anywhere.We asked for the Italian soda to be brought with the meal but they brought them ahead of the meal and there is no refill on them. Those actually were good, the one bright spot of the experience."Something happened in the kitchen", we were told, which led to a significant delay of the food getting to the table.We ordered adult entrees but they brought a children's entree for our hungry teenage boy.We were surprised to find dessert was included when we were done, but they don't have a non-dairy option for two of our group of six with dietary restrictions, but we still get to pay for their dessert they can't eat.The spumoni ice cream did not have three flavors, as pistachio was nowhere to be found in the scoop served.Overall, this was a $40 experience at a $140 price point.My advice about eating here: Just don't.Dietary restrictions: They did not have dairy free dessert options. But you pay for dessert anyways.
OSF is a solid 4.6 on a 5 scale. Impeccable service, great team, good cuisine. What is not to like? We showed up with 5 minutes to close, they served us with smiles and efficient service. Keep up the good work. We will definitely be back soon!

Im normally in the mood for other types of cuisine than Italian when I go out but after finding this place It makes me crave Italian food way more. This is one of the best places I've had Italian food, definitely a bit heavy on carbs so split an appetizer instead of ordering one for yourself otherwise you will likely bring food home especially if you order a cream pasta dish. You can easily tell how freshly made the food is. The loaf of bread they bring out is warm and freshly baked to perfection with some amazing salted butter. Its soft and crunchy. The entrees come with soup or salad as well and ice cream for dessert. The ice cream is amazing not your typical ice cream. I prefer the soup over the salad, its minestrone and the broth is fantastic. The meatballs are great, juicy and well seasoned. The pasta sauces are some of the best pasta sauces ive had they are packed with the flavors of Italy, I could eat the sauce by itself its that good. The quality of the food combined with the atmosphere makes me do a double take on the prices because of how affordable it is for the quality they are offering. Most places that serve this quality of food charge double the price they are charging. This is no olive garden. I can't wait to try more items from the menu.
Trolley dining car is cool, the atmosphere was okay, nothing special. Server was seemed a little busy or confused. Food was alright. They did provided a booster seat for my kido. Didn't stay for desert.Kid-friendliness: Had a booster seat.
