“Busy, Slow Service, O.K Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

After visiting many other Spaghetti Factory's, wasn't overly impressed with the Banff Location. Very Busy, seemed to be somewhat understaffed... Food was OK, was difficult to get drinks refilled as everyone was running around.

“Fantastic Dining and Excellent Price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

Went with a friend and the entire meal was only $35+ tax (barring the alcoholic beverages!). This included an appetizer (which was great), a starter (soup and salad, pretty basic, but good none the less) a main (I got some curry thing which was pretty good, and my friend got some sea food pasta, which she loved) and a desert (cheesecake was pretty good for prefab!) and of course, warm bread with garlic butter! Loved the location, service was good, the food was great, and the price was unbeatable!

“A family fav”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

Quick, personal, positive service. Fair prices. My father-in-law enjoyed it so much he took us back two days later (that would make it a double "thumbs up")!

“Not impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Went for a quick lunch and was not impressed. The coffee was cold, the service slow and it was not busy, the menu was different from other OSF restaurants. No garlic on the garlic chicken and the pasta was overcooked & mushy

“Value for Money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Travelling you can spend so much money on Accomodation and Attractions. We wanted to find a cheap place to eat as we were running low on money and we found it! We went to The Old Spaghetti about 5 times cause we knew we were getting value for money and would walk away full to the brim! If i had to say a negative it would probably be the Salad was a bit boring compared to the lovely Soup! Lovely staff and service. Thankyou so much for a great experience!
