Good news for spaghetti fans eager to get their mizithra fix.
The Old Spaghetti Factory is reopening at Hawaii Pacific University’s Aloha Tower Marketplace on Monday, May 21.
The restaurant shuttered its Ward Warehouse location last July so the complex could be demolished, much to the disappointment of loyal customers.
“We have been an institution here since 1978. People have been knocking down our doors, calling repeatedly to find out when we we’re going to reopen,” said general manager Bill Puchert. “It’s really an upgrade to be here at Aloha Tower, to have this harbor right behind us, alongside Nimitz Highway.”
The Old Spaghetti Factory will be open Monday, May 21, through Friday, May 25, from 4:30 to 10 p.m.
Then starting Saturday, May 26, the restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day.
The new restaurant can accommodate 400 people in indoor and outdoor seating areas, two banquet rooms and a full bar. It will employ more than 100 people.
Guests can expect the return of the restaurant’s popular three-course meal and its iconic train.
