Old Spaghetti Factory

53 Water Street, Vancouver, BC, V6B 1A1

The Old Spaghetti Factory is a long-time Vancouver favourite. Its decor and fixtures blend perfectly with the Gastown environment. A highlight is the tram car inside the restaurant that has been set up for dining seating (kids love it). Friendly, upbeat, good prices add up to a great experience in a unique atmosphere. Enjoy this visual tour.
