Old Spaghetti Factory

Last night 6 of us went out for dinner to celebrate a friends birthday. None of us had been to the 'Old Spaghetti Factory' in many years and it was a very pleasant surprise.

We didn't wait long to be seated, but we weren't fussy either about the location of our table as long as it wasn't too far a walk for Pop with his walker. We were seated at a window table which was just below street level so we saw 'everything' that was happening.

The Old Spaghetti Factory in New Westminster is right beside the Sky Train station and there are plenty of unsavory characters who hang around there, so that made for some good 'people watching'.

Our waiter was a bit of a talker, and a little disorganized, but other than that everything was very good. The place was clean, with great antique furniture and art objects imported from Great Britain. The large scale near the front door was a great conversation piece. Pop suggested we all weigh ourselves before and after dinner. He didn't get many takers - ha!

The food was excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend the Old Spaghetti Factory. Of course, you expect spaghetti to be served, but the menu was extensive with a range of prices and very kid friendly. The bill with a bottle of red wine and 3 drinks was about $45.00 per couple, which seemed very reasonable for an evening out with good friends!

It didn't look like hard times had hit in New West last night - as we were finishing dinner the lineup of families was stretched halfway up the block!

Spaghetti factory, now that's a crazy restaurant name, I like it. Makes me crave for spaghetti. They definitely must of had garlic bread to. It's funny I came across this post when I did because I just got done eating spaghetti. I like to use Paul Newman's spice, has a nice zip to it, nice and tangy. Thinking about going for seconds after I read your post, made me hungry!
