We found it a bit hard to find. It is upstairs in the shopping center. Our waiter was very prompt and friendly. The atmosphere was nice and the food delicious. We would definitely return!

There are amazing spots to eat in Banff, but few of them are reasonably-priced enough for a family on vacation. Centrally located in the mall in downtown Banff, the Old Spaghetti Factory turned out to be the family dining we were seeking. The restaurant offered generous portions, but three of our family needed to ask for more sauce for their spaghetti. I had a very good seafood pasta that would be equivalent in that offered at East Side Marios. Through in lots of fresh bread and we were happy!
Although the restaurant was packed and busy serving many large groups, we had excellent service from a personable British waitress who took time to chat.
Not sure if they accept reservations. When we were there, there was a line up. Arrive a bit ahead of when you wish to eat, leave your name and stroll around the little mall.

Have been to this chain in other cities and had meals I loved. This time the spaghetti with meat sauce, my favorite, was light on the sauce and had very little flavor. I ordered a British Columbian Merlot with dinner. It was either watered down or just bad. On the plus side, the meal is all-inclusive at not much more than fast-food prices - bread, salad, dinner, small dessert. Even with the disappointing flavor it is still a good value.

On Saturday we were in Banff (four ladies and two teenage girls) and the vote was for supper at the Old Spaghetti Factory. Initially, I wasn't that excited as I thought there were more interesting options but it ended being a lovely meal. For supper we waited 15 minutes and then were taken to a table with a view of the mountains. The food is reasonably priced and the curry pasta dish I had was very good. We all enjoyed our meals but the best part was the excellent service provided by our waitress, Macy. She took the time to explain what the dishes were like and kept us supplied with fresh hot bread and drinks. She is an excellent waitress and made our meal very enjoyable.,

An OK meal, service was very rushed our salad was brought to us then before we were half finished out came the meals. So if your in a hurry this is the place to go. Food was your average Spaghetti Factory quality.

Great place to take children !
