We always stop by the old spaghetti factory. Always friendly service and delicious pasta. And I love the seats by the windows.

We called ahead to ensure meals without dairy were possible. The receptionist was very friendly and assured us that we could have a very nice meal without dairy. When we arrived I told Matt (the manager?) that I had spoken with the receptionist about dairy allergies. He showed me items on the menu that had "hidden" dairy such as the... More

After a good outdoor day around Banff we tried the Old Spaghetti factory, very busy place at 5.30pm on a weekday.

Came here for a day trip and my friend and I were famished after a hike so we chose spaghetti. Our waitress was nice, not super enthusiastic but she was friendly and attentive. The food was pretty delicious and to be honest the spaghetti was cooked absolutely perfectly. Not a lot of places can cook pasta right but they did!

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
