We visited twice on our recent trip to Toronto. We loved it. Took a little while to be served a lasagne, but it was worth it. Free appetiser, dessert and tea/coffee. The speciality Spumoni ice cream is gorgeous!!

Thank you for the review, Sara! We love hearing that our lasagna was worth the wait and we couldn't think of a better word for Spumoni ice cream than "gorgeous"! We hope you visit us again the next time you are in Toronto. All the best! More

Included in the price was also soup or green salad, as much as you like warm bread and garlic butter, ice-cream and tea or coffe making it great value for money. We came here 2 nights in a... More

My husband and I went for Valentine's Day and we really enjoyed the food. We also received great service from a waiter named Rebecca.

The food was typical comfort food, and reasonably priced. The big draw is the decor. There is so much to see, just loved looking around at the beautiful lamps, merry go round, street car and so much more.

Description
A meal at The Old Spaghetti Factory is an experience. We invest meticulous attention to our decor so our guests feel as though they're stepping into another world. Every location is adorned with antique lighting, intricate stained glass displays and an old-fashioned trolley car that doubles as a dining hall. Nearly every item on The Old Spaghetti Factory's menu is made on-site, from scratch, using fresh ingredients. Unlike most restaurants, when you order our entrees, we serve you a complete meal, which includes bread, soup or salad, and dessert. And with our famous kid's menu, special treats and fun activities, we encourage families to feel at home in our restaurants. The Old Spaghetti Factory is still family owned and operated and we welcome your family to join ours for a memorable dining experience.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
