I have been to the Old Spaghetti Factory several times over the years. Have found the food to be ok. The Old Spaghetti Factory seems to be the place to go if you have children that want to be noisy. Pasta is pedestrian nothing fancy.

Parents and two under age 7 kids went here for dinner about 5:00 in the evening in December. Finding parking can be difficult and there was plenty of pan handlers and homeless people wanting handouts or making suggestions to where to park and go eat. We got seated in the little train which the kids loved. The service was fast... More

Our dinner was very nice comes with salad, dinner and dessert all was very good. The atmosphere was nice and we were able to have a nice visit with each other over dinner. The restaurant is nicely decorated and is in Gastown which is pretty but you do have to be careful in the evening hours. Side note please don't... More

This is the first time that we've patronized this location in about a decade (we usually go to the Richmond location). Although the Downtown East Side has improved its appearance in recent years one should still be diligent especially during the evening hours as there are still seedy and homeless persons about. We opted for the Seafood Fettuccine Alfredo and... More

I had the opportunity earlier this month to treat my nephew to lunch at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Gastown, Vancouver, B.C. I have come to this restaurant a number of times when I am visiting in the Vancouver area. I love the décor and the food is great and the service is also very good. The price is good... More

Very family-friendly place. Interesting décor, tasty food for very little money and pleasant atmosphere. Go there if you want your little ones to run around and have fun.

We had reservations for 7 on a saturday. Seated promptly, good service, food acceptable. Spaghetti a little low on the sauce, but the shrimp appetizer was very good. Cool looking interior, with train cars inside.

Most restaurants in Vancouver are extremely pricey. Old Spaghetti Factory, located in Gas Town, was walking distance from our hotel (St. Regis). Dinners were very good and reasonably priced. Eat before 6:30, otherwise, you'll be waiting. Very popular place.

During a recent tour of Vancouver, we stopped in for lunch. We were impressed with the variety on the menu as well as reasonable prices in a very pricey area. Our lunches were very good - great flavors and portions. The service was friendly. The location worked well for us because it's really close to the Hop On Hop Off... More
