We went to the restaurant as it had been recommended as having good food and the menu looked good. 4 of us arrived and asked for a table we were told we would have to wait for an outside table which was fine and we asked if we could sit at the bar which was very pleasant. Then we noticed... More

Nice location and easy to get into and out of. Food was good and prices were average. I enjoyed eating outdoors, and the staff was pleasant.

As usual when we're in Victoria, we made a point of eating dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory. It's a very busy place so it's always best to make reservations. The staff are all young, friendly and very energetic. A small loaf of fresh bread, a cup of soup, spumoni ice cream and coffee are all included in the price... More

Taken to The Old Spagetti Factory by a good friend who was showing us around the city. It was excellent value so we tried the one in Whistler when we got there and weren't disappointed.

Based on the reviews we really didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. Good value and pretty good food. We've eaten here twice in the week visiting Victoria and both times everything was good.
