My friend and our two young children came for dinner while we were visiting Vancouver recently. I have had great experiences at Old Spaghetti Factory's across the country so thought this was a great choice for us. The food was good and speedy. The issue I had was that a lot of people were there early, around 430pm. There were... More

We were told we would have to wait for 10 minutes whilst empty tables just stayed empty. We had been told to have a seat. A party of 3 walked in and were given a table straight away. When another group who had arrived after us questioned this and were going to be taken to a table they were told... More

Give it a miss! Four empty tables in outside area. Checked in with totally incompetent hostess inside. Told there would be five min wait. After ten minutes with those tables still empty three young Asian women without a booking were gushed over by the (now) two hostesses. They were whisked to one of the outside tables. When I queried same,... More

This was our last lunch in Vancouver and we were so glad it wasn't the common tourist trap. The restaurant is promoted in different tourist attractions ads. We were a party of five and were all pleased with the different meals we ordered. It was not crowded so service was excellent. Overall, I rate it as very good. The decoration... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. It was a step above the other Old Spaghetti Factory locations we have visited. It is a great location in Gastown, the service was excellent and the prices reasonable for the "tourist" location.

We hit the Old Spaghetti Factory every time we're in Vancouver. Great atmosphere, unfailingly friendly staff, great food for the pasta lover, portions that the average diner will have to take home some of (especially if one partakes of the complimentary delicious warm bread with garlic butter that lands on your table immediately!). Last time I was there, they even... More

This restaurant is situated in the old part of Vancouver, easily accessed by the Hop On, Hop Off bus. it's in Gas Town. It was very busy, showing how popular it is, so booking might be helpful, but we didn't know that and just turned up. They put our names on both the outdoor seating and indoor seating lists to...

It's a good place to eat with a family, friends, or by yourself. I tried the Lasagna, it's so delicious. The staff is so nice. The price is good including( a fresh salad, main course, and a good mixed of chocolate and pistachio in the end) all of those is around $20 which is good. The sauces are tasty though.... More
