Arrived at 6.30pm on a Monday evening (bank holiday) and were seated within 20 minutes. Efficient and quick service from pleasant staff. Good value on their 'It's all included' choices and generous portions. Nice decor linking to the area's history.

Okay, so the food is the best. But for appy, main course, desert, and coffee or tea, it's great for the $15 that you spend. It won't be the highest quality pasta that you'll ever eat but it's a fun place to go just for the experience. The train in the middle of the restaurant and the stained glass windows... More

We hadn't been here in decades, so we took our grandkids visiting from Chile. It's still the same basic complete fixed-price menu. We all had filling pasta dishes (is there anything else?) with salad, beverage and ice cream. The sourdough bread was a good starter and disappeared quickly, but our waiter didn't ask us if we wanted more, as they... More

The street car is the major attraction at this Old Spaghetti Factory location. The other main draw is that unless you order from the appetizers and the sides one price covers you from your starter to your dessert (even your coffee).........what a deal.

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
