The food was okay. The waiter tried his best but the food just wasn't that good. I wasn't impressed with the salad or the pasta.

The Old Spaghetti Factory has been in Gastown since the 1970's. I believe this location was their first, and it was fun to go back there tonight after so much time. It seems the menu has expanded a little since then, but the classic formula...More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
