I arrived and was told it was a 20 minute wait. I dont know why as there was 7 tables free . 2 needed cleaning but the other were free to be used . The two girls on reception could have been more help by at least one of them helping the staff to clean off the tables instead of... More

When our children were little, this was always a good choice. For old times sake, we ate there on this trip. Busy on a weekday night, but were seated in the 15 minutes promised. Spaghetti are now organic, all ingredients locally sourced. Nice! Server was extra attentive and friendly. Price was right.

We went to this franchise in a different city on a previous trip so we wanted to try again. This location was great. The menu and pricing scheme is great. I enjoy how it is all-inclusive. The service was nice, kind, and efficient. The food tasted delicious. The decor and design of this location is special and looks great. This... More

Our meals were large and tasty. The service was great. The ladies tending our table were fabulous. They were friendly and obliging. We took half our sandwich back to the hotel for our supper. I wished afterwards that we had to order spaghetti! But next time I'm in Victoria I'll order it. A very busy restaurant!

This place is perfectly located near the museum and eating outside is perfect. The menu selection is very good, service excellent. We were at the Museum in the afternoon and decided to eat locally. We walked about 1/4 mile and had an early dinner at the Spadhetti factory.

We were on a day trip to Victoria from our holiday base in Vancouver and called in here for lunch. The food was great and good value for money. We enjoyed a warm small bread loaf, with delicious soup followed by a main course. The waitress was lovely, our only niggle was the service was slow, from arriving we were... More

The all inclusive option of soup, pasta & sweet was enough for two. Second plate provided at no extra cost. They even divided the soup and sweet in the kitchen. With a serve of mussels, wine & beer it cost just on $50.

We visited the Old Spaghetti Factory for a quick dinner and found it to be excellent as always! The prices have not increased significantly (unlike in Whistler) and the meal provided was of the same size as it's been for years (again unlike in Whistler). For anything Italian at a reasonable cost you simply cannot beat the Victoria Old Spaghetti... More

We usually dine at this restaurant when visiting the area. The meals are always good and the atmosphere is comfortable. This restaurant is close to downtown and in walking distance to a lot of tourist attractions.
