OK, it is not fine dining but I suspect that most of the time that is not what we want. We had an excellent meal with a local beer with soup and bread. Set us up for the rest of the day. Service was friendly and efficient.

Stumbled across this restaurant almost by mistake and so glad we did. We had eaten at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Seattle and had had a lot of fun there. This was just as good with generous portions of food at very good prices. Nothing was too much trouble and our group of eight had another very enjoyable evening.

Banff is landlocked, really landlocked. The closest shrimp are probably 10 000 miles away. What are you thinking ordering shrimp? Even the kids like this place. I like the wine, it's cheap. They need to give me the receipt for the garlic butter. My baby daughter literally ate an entire oyster cup of that stuff with her greasy fingers. I... More

We went for dinner one night and j was very clear my son had a dairy allergy. The waiter seemed to comprehend what I had said until he came around and just about started grating cheese on his good. I stuck my hand out and grabbed the plate before it landed. Waiter looked confused, patently he didn't realize cheese was... More

Maybe it's a Canadian thing but deep fried shrimp? Service was brilliant and very friendly but found was okay and could have been warmer. That said it was popular and cheap 'ish

The best thing about TOSF is its staff, and in second place, its affordable menu. And if you have a high tolerance towards pasta, then you've reach the mecca of spaghetti. While many may not go the cheap eats option if visiting Banff, as a resident of Calgary, I've visited canmore/Banff half a dozen times this year alone--Cheap eats allow... More

They were very short staffed so it took a while to get our food but the lasagna was delicious and the waitress was very nice.

Visited on a Tuesday night in May, not busy. Food enjoyable and reasonably priced. Loved the fact they bring you bread and garlic butter when you sit down. Main courses also included a startert of soup or salad and an ice cream for dessert. Lovely Bellini cocktail and choice of bottled beer
