“Fun family restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

Love the location and eating outside with the view of Sulphur Mountain in Banff. The service and food was good. Simple spaghetti entrees with salad and spumoni include was what our family enjoyed. The location was in the heart of Banff and easy to find and get to. Highly recommended for familys!

“Enjoyed the whole experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

It had been many years since I had visited an Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant mainly because the last experience had not been that great. We were however very impressed with this visit to the Banff location. The courtesy, ambiance, value, taste and location were all exemplary. We were most impressed with our food which was very well prepared and presented as well as just darn tasty.

“Amazing, as usual”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

I have NEVER been dissapointed with this restuarant!! Our server was fantastic, attentive and courteous, the food was quick, delicious and fresh, we never lacked fresh baked bread, drinks or service! I would recommend ANYONE to go here! The gentlemen seating people was even courteous enough to point out the time of day and sun's direction when ushering people to their seats if they chose to sit by a window and ALWAYS offered a shady option if this was a problem! BRAVO AGAIN Old Spaghetti Factory, BRAVO!

“Very good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

When we ordered a main course, we got a free starter, a free tea/coffee and free spumoni ice cream. I had the clam spaghetti, which was good, but not anything particularly outstanding. The spumoni ice cream was very good but there was a bit of ice in it. Felt a bit uncomfortable with the waiter's very obvious flirting with the table next to us. Overall, though, it was excellent value for money. Would definitely go again.

“Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Have been to the OSF several times before and this place didn't disappoint. The wait staff was super friendly and our waiter- Rene did a great job of waiting our table. The quality of food was really good, the service was prompt and the waiter's banter topped off the whole experience.

I definitely recommend this place.
