The Old Spaghetti Factory

A ‘cheap and cheerful’ dinner with all our friends was the request from my very close friend who is leaving town tomorrow. And so after much discussion we decided on the ‘The Old Spaghetti Factory’ in Whistler. This is the second time I have been to The Old Spaghetti Factory this year and I have to say I was extremely impressed with their handling of my Gluten Free needs. I took my packet of Gluten Free pasta with me and early on in the evening spoke with my server about my Gluten free meal requirements. She was very responsive and although not totally familiar with Gluten Free foods, took my pasta to the chef and explained my needs. Upon returning with the wine she confirmed the sauces that would be suitable and which salads would work. In the end I chose a creamy pesto pasta with chorizo sausage rather than chicken. I was certainly not disappointed, my meal was delicious and because I bought my own pasta I was only charged $5 for the sauce. Now that is what I call a ‘cheap and cheerful’ dinner.

  1. I would never have thought to take my own pasta to a restaurant and have them make it up for me. Thanks for the tip!!

  2. How cool! I’ve been wondering about Spaghetti Factory (some locations have gluten free pasta)- maybe I’ll have to give them a try!
