Our take...

Another reason to visit the Riverport entertainment district in Richmond is the Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant. Located directly beside the Zone Bowling Centre, the OSF offers great accessibility and superb dining keeping with its 35 year old tradition of providing the finest pasta and superb service, to make an extremely unique dining experience. Interior view of restaurant Disabled parking is abundant in Riverport. Four spacious spots can be found just a short distance from the main entrance of the OSF. Smooth and level sidewalks lead to a gradual ramp, with rest levels and hand railings. The front entrance does not have power entry doors, but the large door isn't heavy and has a large levered handle. Inside the OSF colour contrast between floors, walls and accessories is strong and distinct. Menus are typed in bold, 12-14 size font. Seating is provided in either booths or tables, and there is a significant selection of accessible seating for persons using wheelchairs. Tables are high and easy to roll under with non-obtrusive stands. Accessible seating can also be found outside on the patio. This area is very spacious and was laid out considering the space required for persons using wheelchairs and other assistive equipment. Washroom facilities are excellent at the OSF. A single occupancy washroom is offered for Males and Females with a raised toilet seat and grab bars; a lowered mirror, soap and towel dispenser and light switch; a sink with clearance and levered handles; and an obstruction free floor area. Colour contrast is strong and signage is in tactile format. It was March of 1970, when the first Old Spaghetti Factory Restaurant in Canada was opened in the Gastown district of Vancouver. Today OSFs are located all over Canada and the United States. The Richmond OSF is the newest location added to this successful chain of restaurants. Inside you will find a similar atmosphere to the original Gastown restaurant, including antiques and artifacts, great service and delicious food in generous portions, but also, an extremely accessible destination for persons with disabilities.
