Cool decor, mediocre, processed food. When you ask for a slight variation and they say "Oh, sorry, that's the way it comes" you know it's made in some central processing plant and brought in for reheating.

What a fantastic Restaurant, decor is typical Italian, food likewise. Really lovely place and the food is lovely and huge portions. Easy walking distance from Canada Place just past the Steam Clock.(which also is worth a pic or three!)

Very nice restaurant. Got off the Hop on Hop off bus. It is located right in the shopping district, very large place with outside seating. We ordered pasta dishes and were able to order small portions, which were quite ample. We had teenagers with us, they ordered regular meals, they were all very reasonably priced, included soup or salad and... More

This is a trip for visitors in Vancouver. There are a lot of restaurants in the gas town district is better. We went because we have my grandsons with us and they did not even like the food. They just held back on meat and cheese on their spaghetti. Cesar salad (plain) was just bad. However we did have wonderful... More

I've been to several Old Spaghetti Factory's and while I've enjoyed them all, this one was especially special. Our server was polite, the food absolutely delicious with proper timing between dishes, and the location is unbeatable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to locals and visitors both.

The pasta is very good here many different entrees to choose from. The staff help out with all your needs and even sing if it's a birthday plus cake. Kids have their parties here as well. Great value for your money and lots of food.

Ate dinner here last night, Saturday. We waited about 15 minutes to be seated. Service was excellent, our primary server was excellent, she spent a lot of time talking to us and provided great service. The food was good as well which was a surprise. I would definitely return.

This was our first time eating at a Old Spaghetti Factory and I must say its not overly impressive. But, with that said it is a great price for the amount of food you get and it was good. They have lots of different sauce options and you can try a couple different which is what I did. I had... More

The food was tasty and the inclusion of soup and ice cream in the price make it unbeatable. Busy restaurant so expect to wait at peak times. Tables a little cramped. Service friendly and good.
