We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory with a group of 10. The restaurant was packed, but we had a reservation and were seated right away. Our drink order was taken right away, but then things increasingly slowed to a crawl. In all, our meal took about 2.5 hours - thank goodness we didn't have kids in our party! Our... More

By far one of the most popular spaghetti restaurants in downtown Victoria. A bit pricey but the food is good and the service was excellent. A nice place to stop in after a day of sight seeing.

Italian food selections among the four of us: two for Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce; one with Meatballs, and one order of Onion Soup with Spinach Salad; with tea; followed by Spumoni!

Unbelievable what you get for your money. The menu is varied, the food is freshly made and served with a loaf of bread fresh from the oven. Your meal includes soup or salad main course, desert and tea or coffee. A good value. We go at least twice over a two week period.

If you are on a low budget this is the place for you! The menu is varied. The meals are large so hubby and I always share. For $15 Cdn we had a delicious lasagna, served with garden salad, fresh bread with garlic butter, and spumoni ice cream for dessert. It hit the spot. I love the decor in this... More

It's the spaghetti factory, it's decent food with consistent service. The atmosphere is pleasant, the building is neat and the washrooms are clean. A perfect place for a family meal.
