I ordered the spaghetti with meat sauce, meat balls, shrimp, and sautéed mushrooms. The bread and butter very good. The service and staff were impeccable. Our waiter was very professional and polite with a smiling face.

For me the Old Spaghetti Factory is all about the bread and butter. I love it. And everyone at our table did too. Who wouldn't? It's hot and fresh. The rest of the meal was pretty good too. Not out of this world but decent and enjoyable and a good price. Our server, Micah, was super polite and great to... More

Our family always had dinner at the OSF whenever we visited Victoria... Until we had a not so good experience a few years ago... So last night when I suggested dinner there my husband was not too keen on the idea... but we thought we'd give it one more chance. We had about a 30 minute wait to get a... More

Fabulous staff - attentive, personable and professional. Excellent food, varied menu, great service, good prices. The meal was not too rushed and wait staff were very attentive. Location is good as other parts of downtown Victoria are pretty seedy - this was away from that.

My mom had the lasagna and she loves it! The food quality, taste and price is impossible to beat! Busy as hell at dinner time and why... More

Four of us visited the old spaghetti factory in Victoria on a Friday evening, the place was packed, our 20 minute wait ended up being 45 minutes. So if you fancy it make sure you reserve before going. The service was good, as it usually is in Canada, the food on this occasion was mediocre. As I mentioned it was... More
