Had lunch there with colleagues and really enjoyed it. I had a gluten free Thai chicken dish, a spinach salad with a delicious dressing, and ice cream for dessert. The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. This is a great place for a family dinner, and in fact brought back pleasant memories of family dinners at The Old Spaghetti Factory in Edmonton when I was a child.

Stopped in at the Spaghetti factory with a co-worker for dinner. The food was what I expected with no issues of service. It was a decent value for the money too.

We have been to several Old Spaghetti Factory restaurants across Canada and sadly this one was the worst. I was looking forward to the usual great food, service and prices but was very disappointed.

The waiter wasn't particularly friendly and the service was quite slow, considering that there were only a handful of people there. Neither of our meals were particularly tasty - I think the spumoni was probably the highlight of the meal.

I don't think we'll be visiting this restaurant again.

Our group arrived just before the Friday evening rush so we had a choice of tables and weren't faced with a long line-up. The restaurant is looking a little more tired and old-fashioned since our last visit 5 years ago. The good value for money all-inclusive pasta menu is still a very good deal. Our party was happy with the minestrone soup, lasagne/manicotti, ice cream and coffee all in for $12.95. One of our group requires a gluten-free diet. Old Spaghetti Factory has a very uninspiring gluten-free menu so she opted for a spinach salad with chicken on the side. It was absolutely awful!The chicken tasted like re-constituted something. The spinach, complete with long stalks and wilting pieces had just been dumped out of the bag on to the plate with a couple of tablespoonfuls of chopped apple and a teaspoonful of slivered almonds dumped on top of it. It was all inedible and indigestible. The server brought along the manager who listened to the complaint and immediately said that our guest wouldn't be charged for her meal. Problem was our guest went home hungry as there were no other appetizing choices for gluten-free diets, unless you can face another piece of roast chicken for $16. This restaurant would have received a Poor rating based on the salad, but everyone else in the group was satisfied with their choices, and the manager did refund the salad. Check out if OSF have improved their salad presentations yet!!
