I wasn't starving when we went for lunch so I decided to order the steamed mussles which was on special for $10. I shared the roasted garlic grilled chicken with my mum. Our waitress brought a fresh-baked sourdough load with garlic butter and regular butter. It was so delicious. I think I ate an entire loaf in the end. I... More

Have a long day of skiing, we were craving pasta. Stumbled upon the old spaghetti factory. Our waiter was a delighted, the food was not only good, but great value. If we travel back to Banff, this place will be a must visit again

We came here several times While on a business trip in Banff. It is on the second floor of The Plaza and overlooks the street, giving a nice view of the mountains. The staff were excellent hosts and we created a romantic dinner on 2 occasions. Everything on the menu appeared tasty, but my wife settled for New York Steak... More

Good pasta, like the whole meal is priced together. Nice view of Mt. Rundle from our seat. Large restaurant with several seats. The aroma pulls you inside from the shopping area.

Ate here several times and it is always busy probably because it's such good value for money. Main grip is you often have to wait to get a table. If you can wait though it is worth it with 3 courses with any entree.

The meal package is really affordable, with bread, side soup or salad, coffee or tea, and ice cream coming with the pasta order. I had the manicotti and paid extra for the onion soup as my side. The soup was really nice, as was the bread with garlic butter. I skipped the ice cream and hot drinks but had a... More

We were recommended to go to the spaghetti factory by a few people, it is very good value for money. You get a starter and desert free with a main meal, there is a nice range of dishes to choose from. It can be quite busy so be prepared to wait for a table but is a great meal which... More

This was our 4th try to find somewhere to eat that wasn't booked out in Banff and we were lucky to get a table here. Our server told us it was quieter than it had been (just past New year) even though it looked super busy to us. Food is good hearty post-ski fare, and service polite and friendly while... More
