Good Pasta

The food was really good at the restaurant. The downside is the noise. This has got to be the noisiest place to eat. I have eaten here before and it was noisy then too. I don't know what it is about the acoustics there but it's hard to hear yourself think.

Went on Friday night around 10:30 pm. I ordered the Riso Italiano. When I received the food is was cold just barely luke warm. I sent it back and it came back hot. Had to wait awhile for it to cook so I filled up on bread and salad. So I ate what I could which wasn't very much and... More

Love the hot wedding soup and salad--and the bruschetta pizza was lovely. Fresh, hot food and great service.

The waitress we ended up having was super friendly and efficient. Food was pretty good and the tables and dishes were clean, unlike a few other East Side Mario locations we have been to.

Ate lunch at the Cambridge location a year ago. The service was so bad (we never even got a chance to order drinks almost 15 minutes saw no one so we left). So we gave it another chance today lunch came completely burnt (both my lunch and my wife's) the bread on both sandwich'as was charred. The waitress was apologetic... More

Food is good. Beer is good as well. Servers are great. Do not complain as you will be banned from there. Joey the manager Muscle will inform you of that out of earshot from the patrons. He will not be very nice about it either. Or professional. Maybe he has been watching too much of The Sapranoe's. Everybody is entitled... More
