This was a great place to go to within close walking distance of the Museum. We needed a lunch break and OSF was our destination. Excellent waitress - Love the Paper Airplane Tattoo - who was attentive, helpful, and friendly! Complementary Sourdough bread was served hot and fresh along with whipped butter and real garlic butter! The meal was prepared... More

In Victoria in February as usual, and The Old Spaghetti factory usually gets at least one visit every year. There was not the usual consistency of product! My husband and I had different meals, and I wondered what he would say....he agreed; not as flavourful, the bread not the same quality, the salad limp. We did not return. Next year... More

Whenever in Victoria, frequently visit Spaghetti Factory - they offer consistently good food & service and is very comfortable for families. The location is great, especially if your family builds up an appetite while exploring downtown. Lots of good menu options with yummy desserts :)

We go to the Spaghetti factory now and again for a cheap meal while at work. There are very filling 3 course meals for about $15.00 that fill you up. High end Italian, no but good honest food at a great price!

Parking is absolutely horrible. Be prepared to walk a long way if you do find parking. Took us about 40 minutes of circling the blocks, even then we were about 2 blocks away. Very, Very, Very busy place. We needed to wait an additional 45 minutes to get in.

This was walking distance from the museum and the parliament buildings. Got there about 530 on Feb 14th and we were told it would be about a 35 min wait. Happily though we only waited about 20 minutes! We got our bread almost immediately and our drinks followed very quickly. Food came quick and was very good. We never felt... More

If you are going out for dinner in victoria, do not go here! Terrible service and I was disappointed and ripped off. I was given no change when i paid with cash and she was so rude, never brought me my coffee or dipping sauce. Food was cold and she was so rude to our whole team.

We frequent Spaghetti Factories around BC - they offer consistently good food & service and is very comfortable for families <lots to look at for little ones>. The location is great, especially if your family builds up an appetite while exploring downtown. Lots of good menu options. Come hungry - standard servings are generous.

We ate here upon recommendation from our host, and it was very good. We had to wait a few minutes for a table, but the serving staff were very good, and the food was delicious and very moderately priced.
