Old Spaghetti Factory 40th Anniversary -- $1.75 Spaghetti

In celebration of their 40th Anniversary, the Old Spaghetti Factory will be reverting back to their 1970 prices with their various Spaghetti dishes ALL DAY on Monday, March 22nd. All proceeds will be donated to the B.C. Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund. ** NOTE ** This is only at the Gastown location and all other dishes will remain at their normal prices. AND you can make reservations so it's highly recommended that you do to ensure your spot.


Here are the prices for the various Spaghetti dishes:


Spaghetti with Rich Meat Sauce (for purists-our recipe comes straight from Naples)
$1.95

Spaghetti with Spicy Meat Sauce (our great meat sauce with that extra zing)
$1.95

Spaghetti with Clam Sauce (plump butter clams in a white sauce - a favorite of Italian fisherman)
$1.95

Spaghetti with Mushroom Sauce (terrible tender mushrooms, sauted in butter and swimming in authentic Italian tomato sauce)
$1.95

Spaghetti with Chicken Liver Sauce
(Strictly Ameticano - and delectable) (bringing it back for ONE DAY)
$1.95

Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce (dee e lightful)
$1.75

Spaghetti with Browned Butter and Mizithra Cheese, ala Homer (a toothsome treat for cheese lover) ( legend has it that Homer lived on this while composing the Iliad)
$1.95

The Manager's Favorite (choice of any two of the above listed sauces)
$1.95

Pot Pouri - Spaghetti with a portion of Meat, Mushroom, Clam Sauces (a sampler for the undecided - generous portions of our most popular sauces)
$1.95

All entrees come with choice of soup or salad, sour dough bread, Spumoni ice cream, and coffee or tea.

Hmm, probably going to be a gong show there that day...

But I work literally about 20 steps from there, so... might try to go there for lunch.

For $1.75 it's still a rip off. I'm still baffled to this day how Spaghetti Factory is in business. They have some of the worst food in town. Tasteless and just horrible. But if you're ever so curious go for it.

They are equal: Both crap. With Antons you just get three times more crap.

good luck getting in there.

I find that most ppl dunno that their pasta comes with coffee/tea. I see so many ppl say no when the waitress asks if they want coffee or tea.

Not worth it even though it's only $1.95.

To OSF's credit, if all proceeds are to charity, I would say that it is worth it.

My bad, forgot that it was going towards charity, that is worth it then but the food is still nasty and I wouldn't pay $1.95 if it was going towards just OSF.

I understand for the price and what you get in terms of quantity it's sounds like a steal. However, when $1.75 gets you something that has a quality rating of 1 out of 10 or negative if I could even rate it that then even at $0.01 it's a rip. Also considering you have to get your ass down to one of their locations to eat such horrible food in itself is a waste.

I think your missing the point of it being for charity .. so techically your doing it for a good cause and getting a free meal.. btw the food cant be that bad.. you make it sound likes its not edible.. XD

besides beverages, pasta at a restaurant contains the highest markup. At $1.95 with soup or salad, bread, tea, etc, OSF is still making good coin. It's great that they are donating proceeds to charity, but in terms of their pasta, it's nothing to get excited about/
