Excellent food and service even on a very busy night. There was a hockey team in and the place was packed but they were well staffed. The specialty lasagna was superb. We split a Caesar salad which is quite large. The sleeves of beer are a great value as well. They have drink specials and food specials every night. Make... More

Took my kids here after a day at the pool. Wanted to try their pasta and ribs. Service was a little slow at first but we were early and beat the evening rush. Our waitress changed after our first round of drinks, and it was apparent why. Although they allow walk-ins many people reserve and their staff numbers quadrupled after... More

You guessed right, you did catch us during shift change. Sorry your service was lacking at the beginning of your service, I'm glad that everything ended up on a high note. Your wife was smart to get the Salmon Affumicato, that is one of my favourites as well. Thank you so much for your kind words and for joining us.... More

You never know what your going to find in different communities but the Pasta Factory was a true hidden gem. Great food, great atmosphere and super service. If you are in Penticton don't miss this place. Exceptional folks take a bow. Put this place on your list if you want to go home full. 😊

Our meals were tasty, the servings were plentiful, the staff friendly & it was really good value. We thought it would be a perfect venue for when our kids are all at home. More of a family environment than a romantic dinner venue but enjoyable.

This place is over rated. Super bland food. Order came wrong. Got Alfredo instead of carbonara. Retossed the pasta with more Alfredo sauce added a little bacon. Now its swimming in sauce. Not a real carbonara but that's to be expected these days I guess. The cannelloni was alright but the portion is very small. Super boring fast food quality.... More

We were warmly greeted and seated right away. We were told the drink specials right away as well as our order being taken. We didn´t have to wait long for our food order to be taken. The waitress was friendly and efficient. The pasta dishes were hot, fresh and delicious. The bread was the best sourdough I´ve had in awhile... More
