This chain restaurant can be very hit-or-miss, but my meal in Vancouver was excellent. The grilled garlic park chicken was prepared perfectly. The salad was fresh and crisp, with a nice blue cheese dressing. I did not eat the pasta, so I can't comment on that. The service was fast, there was only a 2 minute wait, and the food... More

I always fear pasta restaurants that are so remote from Italy that the pastas bear only a feeble resemblance to the old original, but I must say that the Old Spaghetti Factory makes some really good pasta sauces. On top of that, they throw in the salad, bread, a small ice cream and even the soft drinks, which makes the... More

This location is in Gastown, an old historic area in Vancouver. We were there on a Friday night so it was very busy; very friendly service in the bar and the restaurant. We've been to OSF restaurants and they're pretty consistent - not especially fancy but you know what you are going to get for food. We had a good... More

Our group of 7 had a nice dinner here on a busy, rainy Wesnesday night. The place was packed but our server was friendly and efficient and wait times were reasonable. My Bellini was excellent. My chicken parmagiana would have been better with half the herbs and some sauce on the chicken instead of just a little on the pasta.... More

This is a great place to eat in the Gastown district of Vancouver and so affordable. It was in walking distance from our hotel and after a day of touring Vancouver city on the hop-on hop-off bus, it was nice to jump off the bus and go right into the restaurant. It is so clean and pretty with the cool... More

One thing you need to know about Victoria BC is that EVERYTHING is expensive...except this place. :) For dinner, walk one block from the waterfront (behind the Empress) and have a good Italian meal at normal prices. It even comes with a nice dessert (ice cream) as part of your meal!

The food was very tasty and the cost very cheap! Everything is included - bread, salad, pasta, dessert and coffee. The bread was wonderful, especially spread with the garlic butter. The portions were just right and the service excellent. There is a very good choice on the menu and children are very welcome. Hope you enjoy it as much as... More

I really love coming here. It is a great place with children. The price is right for any budget. The staff are friendly. It is a good place to people watch of you get a window seat. I enjoy all the spaghetti meals. My favourite one is the pot pourie . It comes with three types of sauces. My daughters... More
