We ate here a couple of times whilst in Vancouver. We always had a wait as it was really popular and always busy. You can eat outside on the patio area overlooking the street or inside the large restaurant which was spotlessly clean.
The food choice was great and came as an all inclusive 3 course menu, just paid extra for drinks which were reasonably priced. Despite it being busy they never rushed you to finish at the table. Food was always tasty and hot. Great Gastown location.

I always judge an Italian based on whether I can make it better at home. In this case the answer is yes. I had the spaghetti with meat balls and my husband had mushroom ravioli. The price was very reasonable; I was concerned as We had been told it was expensive for what you get. There is an 'all included' offer where you get sour dough bread and the choice of soup or salad, and an ice-cream dessert with your purchase. The minestrone soup was very nice, the bread was served warm and replaced when we finished the first loaf. Portion of ice cream is small, but ok. My husband also had a pint which was cheaper than other places we have eaten in Vancouver. In total our bill came to approx $37. I thought this was very reasonable for what we got, but definitely not the nicest Italian.

We got off the hop on hop off bus in gastown and selected the old spaghetti factory for lunch. The inside of the restaurant has an old tram in the centre of it and old style lights and seating quite old world like. We opted to sit outside on street level.Our waitress Lydia was very efficient and attentive and placed a loaf of bread on the table when she arrived .She explained that we could have a soup or salad plus icecream included in the price. We both choose a soup and a pasta dish.There was a very extensive choice of pasta dishes plus other meals. We also finished off with the icecream. We felt it was a great place to eat excellent service and the food reasonably priced.

We have eaten at other Old Spaghetti Factories and decided to try this one. The food is good and reasonably priced. Very crowded. In the Gastown area.
