As usual Pastas are great. Location wise is nice, great service but not so good steak. Bread was served cold. But overall it was good experience.

Our party was five adults and two small children, ages 4 and 7. Made a reservation for 5:30 on a Tuesday. The menu was very good. I had veal parmesan, which included a salad, pasta, bread, and ice cream or coffee for dessert. After a long day of visiting the Columbia Ice Fields area, picnic breakfast and lunch, and a... More

We stopped here with our family (including a toddler) and we well accommodated (high chair, kid-friendly menu, etc.). The food was decent and would be familiar to anyone that's visited another Old Spaghetti Factory location, and the prices were reasonable (given it's in Banff!). We were able to eat (4 adults + one toddler) with drinks for under $100 all... More

For those of you from the UK, this was much like the Wetherspoon pub chain. Very large interior and a cheap menu which included everything in at one price. We got garlic bread on arrival, soup, main course and ice cream - all for less than $14. Needless to say, the place was packed and people queuing to get in... More

We went here just because we wanted something easy. The wait was a bit long (30-40 min) but we were able to wait at the bar. The bartender was extremely friendly and gave us free tastings of the wine he had on tap or by the glass so we could decide what we wanted. The prices were very affordable...even for... More

We decided to give this place a try based on a family members recommendation and we were glad that we tried it. We waited about half hour for a table (busy place but worth the wait). Our server was very friendly. The food did not disappoint and it came out quickly. The best part was the Belinni's that were on... More

Perfect meal for a family! Food was excellent. Went twice during our visit to Banff because the kids liked it so much the first time. Only drawback was the 2nd visit we had to wait quite a while for a table.
