We went with our nine year old grandson and four young adult friends. The service and the food was good. Everyone was able to find something on the menu that they liked for very reasonable prices. It was quiet enough to visit with each other.

We went on Friday night fairly early and had no problem getting a table for 2. The decorations are from old stained glass windows and old trams with stained glass light fittings everywhere. Lots of old antiques used. Fabulous atmosphere and wonderful service. Very nice food, Italian type menu specialising in pasta meals. Pay for 1 soft drink and get... More

I have dined at the Old Spaghetti Factory many times. For the majority of my life it was in Vancouver at the Gas Town location and then others in the Greater Vancouver Area. Now that I live in Toronto, we go to the this one every once in a while. Be warned, it is a bit of a tourist trap... More

This restaurant was highly touted as kid friendly, which it was. However, the pasta's we ordered were disgusting - may as well eat frozen. The kids liked their chicken tenders . The location is very convenient and is a nice busy feel.

I dined on the patio In July 2014 and was very disappointed with the service. The menu is altered slightly from their indoor menu. Basically, the prices are lowered and do not include the appetizer and dessert (so you just pay for the entree). This was fine since we didn't need a whole lot anyway. I had a 15% off... More

The food was very good and the service was very good too! We go to this restaurant every year at the same time. I do the 60km Princess Margaret Weekend to End Women's Cancer walk and we spend Friday night downtown before we head out on Saturday morning. It is always a great time with great food.

You get what you pay for here. I like that the price of the entry include a salad or soup, coffee and ice cream. Staff was polite and helpful accommodating a fussy child :)
