great food , great service

We made reservations for 11 people and were promptly seated on time. We got the customary bread to carry us over until the meal came. One of our group members is lactose intolerant and the chef came out to meet with her to discuss what she could have. All entrees were served in a timely fashion and... read more

The Spaghetti Factory is one of my favourites in Banff. The food is very tasty and the service is excellent and quick and they're always friendly. The free starter and icecream make a really nice touch. We always go around 5pm it's much quieter.

The food was tasty and hot. Friendly fast service and great prices. Great for families, couples and singles. Very clean restaurant and washrooms. I will definitely go back their when visiting Banff and the Canadian Rockies. I give it an A all around.

Feeling a little jet lagged, we wanted something wholesome and filling, nothing fancy. That is exactly what we got. Good food, really good value and efficient friendly service. Job done!

We went to the factory for dinner and the food was very, very good as was the service. The servers are efficient, pleasant, friendly and fun. The food is traditional Spaghetti Factory food and it is great. Many specials with lots of variety, a fun place to go for dinner, right on Banff Avenue.

Had lunch on the weekend here on what seemed a rather non-busy time in Banff. There was no waiting and not much of a crowd so we were immediately seated and greeted by our waiter, Loucas. We ordered the Bam Bam Shrimp appetizer, a breaded shrimp with Sriracha sauce, and decided to share the Tortellini Pomodoro. With the latter comes... More

Staff are friendly and helpful and we had half litre carafe of red wine with our meal and which was also good value. Its always... More
