I was looking for a restaurant in Summerland and decided to try this one in Penticton instead. Awesome choice. The decor was comfortable, it had that "come as you are feel to it" promptly greeted with a smile and a hello. We were given a booth and an awesome, funny waitress who was a great server. Very tentative and picked... More

Stopped in for lunch with my hubby. Friendly greeting and good service followed. It was a warm day so we ordered their sleeve lager for $4.00 and sipped slowly-good stuff! Complimentary Sourdough bread slices were offered with a Balsamic dip. The special of the day was lasagna filled with spinach and slivered crab bits in a rich cream sauce. This... More

Meal started off well with the mussels but went down hill from there. The spinach salad was bland and tasteless and the two pasta dishes we ordered were boring and over cooked. When we told the waiter, nothing was done to make amends. He just brought our bill. I would not recommend this restaurant if you really like your pasta.

The Pasta Factory is usually our go to place to eat when we have company drop in or we just want a quick good meal. We have been coming to the Pasta Factory since it opened. Tonight four of us went to the restaurant and we all were surprised how poor all the meals were. The waitress was great but... More

Great food and service! I haven't eaten here in a while and my great lunch made me why I'd been away so long.

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.
