Poor service (slow to take orders, bring orders and clear tables) Food poor (luke warm) although the salad to start was nice but basic (not dressed and consisted of spinach and almonds) Overall we were unimpressed, wouldn't go back.

First time in this unit in Banff and it does not differ from the same restaurant in Calgary. I like the all inclusive style. It turn the family meal much more affordable. Actually you can see a lots of families there. Tge food always tasty

Overall - I felt like I was at a buffet (it's not). You get more food per dollar and the service is great. Good - We ordered the special which included one appetizer, two main dishes and dessert (in addition to the spumoni ice-cream that comes with every meal). We ordered spaghetti with spicy meat sauce (which was delicious) and... More

Always love the atmosphere of this Spaghetti Factory. The service was a little slow, but as always the food is good, the portions substantial and the price is right.

We ate here twice on our trip to Banff as we found it very good value and the food was tasty enough. We especially enjoyed the browned butter cheese spaghetti and liked the concept of the menu. The staff, especially the manager, were helpful and friendly. Worth a visit.

Food was average and service wasn't the best. Perhaps it was just that day but we found the staff to be a bit unpleasant. They were busy so maybe this is why service seemed slower than we expected. On the other hand we have eaten at other Factory spots when they were busy and it seemed to move quicker. Their... More

The staff is always cheerful here and this has been the case with any OLD Spaghetti location I have been until now (including the US). We had a Pacific Islands origin waitress and did she look after us in the most graceful manner while we were there. We didn't feel pressured by any distasteful sales tactics like a swollen face...

While we stayed in Banff we ate at The Old Spaghetti Factory on two occasions. Both times the service, food and atmosphere were great. We were not disappointed, a good pasta dish was a nice ending to our day of hiking.

We eat at The Old Spaghetti Factory in Banff two times and we were very glad to enjoy the place and the meals. It is located in the central street of Banff on the second floor. The meals include a soup or salad, hot bread and butter, coffee or tea and an ice cream to finish. The Italian food is... More
