Great Spaghetti

As an Italian I wanted to check it out with spaghetti done in Canada, and I wasn't disappointed! The quality is good and the dishes are big, plus there is a big choice. Recommended

Every time we go there, we have nothing but a great experience. My kids have food allergies and they are very good about making sure the meals are safe. They have even added extra mushrooms to my son's meal because he couldn't eat the meatballs because of he dairy in them. They are always friendly, fast and the food hits... More

A long way off our first visit and again we had a great dinning experience, a very varied menu card and great service. The decoration is interesting with lots of things to look at.

We've been to the OSF a few times and the service and food are always consistent. Not 5-star, but edible and reasonably priced. Good location. Good view from the window tables.

Relatively quick for food to come out. We had a magnificent host/server who made all the difference. We went here in Summer 2015 and sat near the open window and went in Winter 2016 and sat nearly in the same spot - windows closed this time though!! Great food, great service - as a local, I'll definitely be back!

To be honest on this trip my friends and I, who all work in resort sort styled tourist infested retail, turned into the people we hate. Coming in last minute and staying until close. So here was our 1st of 2 last minute walk ins for food. They were super friendly, I was late so the waitress allowed my friends... More

Mine and my partners first experience of the old spaghetti factory and we were both pretty impressed. It was our last might of our holiday and we're on a tight budget with out remaining dollars. We found the food to be very tasty at a very reasonable price compared to what we had paid for other meals during the week.... More

Haven't been to one for years, what a pleasant surprise. Even though the restaurant was quite busy on a Sunday afternoon, the service was very fast. We had 2 very young boys with us and we ordered for them right away as it was way past their normal eating time; the food arrived incredibly fast, was hot and very tasty.... More

Have been to this place 4 times in the last 14 days. Good honest food and staff are very friendly and happy to hold a conversation after you have paid the bill irrespective of how much of a tip you have left! Very good value for money any day of the week.
