Fancied some italian fare during our visit to Vancouver and this seemed to fit the bill. Restaurant was busy but table available straight away - seafood pasta was OK but as soon as we had finished the bill was immediately presented leading us to think that we should be leaving! Althlough felt welcome initially this was not the case at... More

Our son spotted this place when we were seeing gastown. Was a great spot as food was lovely and it was a gorgeous building with lots of history. Our waitress was brilliant. Loved the all inclusive element with salad etc. Well worth visiting.

Very busy but worth the wait and good value for money. The 'All Included' menu is brilliant. However, don't expect to find the same menu in all restaurants.

No visit to Vancouver is complete without a visit to Gastown. Lively area of the city. Probably your visit is even better if you visit Old Spaghetti Factory. Good ambience, especially if you sit in the Carriage in the middle of the restaurant. Very good and prompt service from Caleb, all the dishes were delicious, especially the seafood fettuccini Alfredo... More

It was awesome, great food in a fabulous setting, excellent wonderfull lampshades everywhere, the service was good and the girl was great. A wonderful night at the venue, as was the people arriving for dinner there was a queue of diners awaiting seating, this was a sign that the food was epic.

Gastown is worth visiting and this place is conveniently located. Manicotti is very good, spaghetti is also good from what fam describes. Gave us nice bread before, service was adequate. A few addicts were bothering patrons in patio area (a few blocks from DTES)

I was a little bit unsure about eating in a tourist area, but I was so wrong. Service was excellent, food was better, and the price was very reasonable for the amount of food. The place is really nice and recommendable.

The restaurant is in the center of Gastown, very antic furniture but stylish at the same time. I ordered some steamed mussels and a Mediterranean salad, besides that I got ciabatta bread and a cup of minestrone soup on the house..I would say the food was average on the way to good but the staff/service was very good, specially Hayley...

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
