We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals at the OSF. It is a little difficult to actually get a table because of its value for money and quality pasta so recommend booking in advance but highly recommend eating here .

Enjoyed the food, especially all the fresh bread and butter. First place we found unsweetened ice tea in all of Western Canada. Service was great as well.

I ordered baby back ribs and they were PERFECTLY cooked. It took a bit longer to get our food, but the ribs made up for it.

Generous portons of food, good taste, and plenty of choice on the menu. We would have been prepared to pay more for better quality but smaller portions, but this is really a family-friendly restaurant that provides exactly what it advertises.
