Always enjoy eating here with their all-inclusive pricing: soup or salad, coffee or tea, entree & ice cream! The service was pretty slow this time around so thankful that we weren't in too big of a hurry. Food was really good & served piping hot!...More

You get a good amount of food for your money, but the quality of food is not amazing compared to other places. It is cheap, cheerful and does the job. The staff are friendly and the interior is interesting.

Food is great and will definitely be back. It was our first time and from the bread to our soup and main, everything was perfect. Go for their pasta, duh! Price is affordable too! Cost us about 20 per pax.

Pleasant, helpful staff, food was good, order didn't take very long, and took to hotel to eat. Seemed like Old Spaghetti Factory that I went to in Edmonton years ago.

I very much enjoy eating here. I can’t really say it is too much different from other Spaghetti Factories; good food and good staff. Tucked away upstairs in the mall I have never been disappointed. Also I appreciate that they have a gluten free menu...More
