Great Food at Great Prices

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

This is a great place to take kids that is not hard on the wallet. Portions are big and food is good. Don't go if you are expecting exceptional food. It's average. Very busy. Make a reservation.

we went here twice, and a lot is included in the price , the bread, main and dessert, salad is a little extra but still very good value for money the service was great, and the little thing that made me laugh was the place mat with little quotes on how the restaurant works and what thing are for brilliant

Enjoyed another great meal at TOSF. Had a bit of a wait to get in but I've come to expect that from any place that's decent in Banff. Kids enjoyed the pasta. I had the chicken parmaseana.

We dine their just before close. They made every effort to provide great service and food. The price was what we where most used to paying at home for a large group. It was hot and timely.I recommend this as a spot to eat after skiing.It is hard to find but is upstairs in the main mall in Banff.

Made reservations for 4 on a Saturday. Wait was minimal considering how busy the restaurant was. Service was good as was the food. Would have appreciated a refill on the bread but aside from that it was a good experience. :-)
