“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Food was great value! You get bread, soup or salad, main pasta and ice cream all for only the price of the pasta. We were on a tour and only had a short time for lunch. Waiter very helpful with ensure we were out by the required time.

“Always Busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Only down side to this restuarant is really how busy they are all the time. Service suffers for this a bit so give yourself plenty of time to eat here.

Food is good and cheap considering the amount that is provided. Always walk out full!!!

“OK food but understaffed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

Had dinner here. Give it's a chain restaurant and we thought this would satisfy the group. The restaurant was so busy and understaffed. Every table was used and the whole facility was very noisy with no room to walk around tables when entering or exiting. Didn't really enjoy the overall atmosphere here. The food was good, not anything bad and not anything exceptional. the service was not good - they seemed understaffed and we constantly had to grab our server and remind her about things forgotten. Would eat here again hoping things would improve but not looking to go out of my way to rush back.

“Service was fantastic! Thanks Dominque!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Service was the best we have ever had in Banff! Food was very good and very reasonably priced. It will definitely be on our list of places to recommend and eat at our next trip to Banff.

“Very tasty and cheap!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

I have only been to the Spaghetti Factory twice, but both times it has been great. They are always very friendly and we have had great service both times. We loved how they include starters and desserts in the price of your main. You also get warm bread and tea or coffee included. I had the Spaghetti in Clam sauce which was really tasty and creamy. It was only $12. Including everything! My boyfriend had chicken parmigiana and he loved it. Nice big portions with lots of flavor, we will definitely return soon!
