We read that this was a place to try in Banff, so we had a late lunch here. The pasta was sub-par even when compared to fast-food joints such as Pizza Hut, which isn't saying much. The soup tasted like a watered down soup from a can, and the bread was equally disappointing. The service was equally indifferent. Save your... More

The Old Spaghetti Factory in Banff is a great place for great Italian food for the money. The ambiance in the mountains is great also.

Very nice restaurant we made reservations because we wanted to sit at the open windows over looking the street. We were early and they took us. Which was nice. Service was ok. The bread which is our favorite part was old. Very dry and heavy. Definitely not fresh like usual. We had to ask for more bread and more drinks.... More

Had a great meal, wonderful waiter, Alex, and sat by the window and had the chance to people watch while waits for my food. I ordered lasagna and my husband had seafood Alfredo. We were both very happy with out meals and the reasonable price.

The title pretty much says it all. The Old Spaghetti Factory is good, the service is always efficient and pleasant, it's predictable and you always get plenty of food. The meal starts with endless warm bread and garlic butter. The meals are always substantial and then you get a little dessert. And the price is right. For a family with... More

Our food tasted great and it was well priced. Our server did a great job looking after us and I would recommend this restaurant to any family looking for a sit down... More
