I started going to the San Jose Spaghetti Factory in 1973. When I lived out the area, I always missed it. I have to say tho, that it is not the same place it used to be. I have visited over 20 locations, and everyone was significantly different. It seems like they are trying to make them all as similar as possible. They have removed the uniqueness, by changing out the decor, reflooring and such. The menu's used to reflect the history of each of the restaurants, now those come off a copy machine. I'm sure they are struggling to keep up with the times, but that's not why I go. I want what I have always had there. It's a comfort place for me.
