We have been there a few times and have thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. They can accommodate a large group. We have always had wonderful times there!

My Mediterranean salad was excellent. There were sundried tomatoes, feta cheese, olives, lettuce, artichokes, loads of chick peas, & perfect quantity of well-seasoned dressing. Sourdough bread was served before the entrees arrived. My three companions were happy with their cannelloni, 2 types of lasagna, along with Caesar salads. Our server was very pleasant & attentive.

Nice atmosphere. Great waitress. Caesar salad tasted like fast food Caesar. Meatballs tasted authentic and were great. Smoked Salmon tortellini dish was a bit too salty. Huge portions! We thought the prices medium high. We will try The Pasta Factory again when we visit Penticton again.

I think most people assume that The Pasta Factory is a Spaghetti Factory knock-off but it most definitely is not. I think every local has their go-to pasta dishes here (mine is whole wheat penne with pesto/arrabiatta and added veggies 👍🏼) and I can tell you it's enough food for dinner AND lunch the next day. There isn't anything too... More

Stopped here for a late dinner on our annual Summerland / Penticton holiday. I would recommend a reservation given that even though we showed up at 8:45PM we still had about a 20 minute wait. I had the seafood tortellini and my fiancé made his own pasta. The half order is HUGE ! I'm sure it's more than enough even... More

In a bind got dinner and decided to order from Pasta Factory. Read the reviews and thought maybe it wouldn't be bad. Best thing about the meal we ordered which was the spaghetti and meatball dinner for 2 was the garlic bread. The meatballs had not been cooked in the meat sauce. The spaghetti pasta itself was really thick and... More

Large menu. Pastas were good. My husband loved the chicken parmesan. Only problem was the very slow kitchen service. Server was great. Drinks and salads came quickly but then we waited for over an hour for our main meals. If it's busy, give yourself lots of time!
