“an old favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

it has been many decades since visiting the factory. The one in my local area closed over 20 years ago :(

It was just as I remembered. The food was delicious and the portions were just right (not too big). The service was excellent.
I am looking forward in visiting some other locations when up in vancouver.

This is definitely one of the more reasonable dinners you can have while in banff.

“Consistent and reliable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We visited Banff and Whistler in Feb 2013. We dined at both venues over a 2 week period and found the food to be good and standard accross both venues. Service was very good, variety of food fairly limited, but acceptable for a quick dinner at an acceptable price

“Good food in central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

At the Old Spaghetti Factory consistently good food is served by pleasant staff. The menu is typical ski town cafe (pizzas, burgers, pasta etc.) but quality is good and service is friendly and helpful. The portions are huge and all main courses come with starter, dessert and coffee for around CA$16, unusually cheap for Banff.
Booking not required but probably a good idea at busy times to avoid waiting.
