This is an all included place to eat. You get your choice of soup or salad, entree, ice cream and either tea or coffee. It was under $24.00 for both of us. I loved my linguine with the hot Spanish sausage. My wife had minestrone soup and a spinach salad with prawns. You get a small loaf of bread with... More

This was our first time at the Banff location. We were seated right away...we got there at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon. The host was super friendly, our waitress, Cody was fan-freaking-tastic!!! The food was delicious and my sweetheart and I had a very romantic afternoon. I recommend this restaurant to everyone!!!!!

We had to wait 30 mins for a table as they were so busy . Lots of families with young children ,ideal for them . Great value for money , Typical chain food pasta restaurant but very fast efficient service with OK food when you don't want to spend too much time hanging around .

This is much like its sister property in Toronto. The food is good and plentiful at a reasonable price. A great place to take the family for a good time and not worry about the priciness of Banff.

What a brilliant find. The surroundings are great with gorgeous Tiffany style lamps. The music is at just the right level so you can have a conversation. Incredible value as you choose the main course then have sour dough loaf with choice of butters, soup or salad, plus ice cream, and tea or coffee - all for the price of... More

Although you do get a lot for what you pay I would have preferred less quantity (and the complimentary salad that had seen better days and Italian ice cream that would not have passed in Italy) for higher quality. I guess you get what you pay for...

I miss The Old Spaghetti Factory so much now we are back in Australia... For under $20 you get bread, salad or soup, main meal AND dessert... and whatever you can't eat they box up for you to take home! Best lasagne ever (sorry Mum) :)

This is definitely a must if you are staying in Banff. Very reasonably priced food with a great choice of menu. Have never been disappointed with a meal here. The service is also good and portions generous. Can get very busy so sometimes worth booking so as not to be disappointed. Very central for the shops so after your meal... More
