pasta and more Italy than ever

The look may have changed from the the first incarnation but just as little more Italy. Love the open view to my salad being made. The service , well even the pickiest eater can attest, it's the best. Good deal for you money to beat. Yummm!

Great food and atmosphere. Busy at times with longer waits than I like but worth it in the end. The meals was bigger than I expected but of great quality so we ended up taking leftovers home with us.

Went for dinner Sat. evening .... very, very busy (and this was after the University Students had all gone home for the summer). Fortunately, it was a nice evening so the outdoor patio was open. You get a view of the parking lot and a busy street, but it's still nice to sit outside. They often have specials which really... More

Very busy with attractive decor, but run of the mill fast food. Quick service and they do give you plenty to eat but the food quality is only average at best. There were over 40 people in our party and we were in and out in in just over 1 hour. Not bad. The Chicken Parm was tasty and more... More

Dropped by for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. First time I have been back since it was renovated. Service was good and the food very well done. I would recommend this as a good lunch spot anytime.

Have been to East Side Mario's numerous times in Guelph. Even when it is super busy we get waited on quickly. Love the garden sale and garlic bread stick. A favourite is their firecracker shrimp bow ties and chicken tetrazzini. A family favourite.

definitely a favourite for my boyfriend and I, we always get the unlimited salad and bread, which we stuff ourselves with and by the time our pasta arrives, we pack it up and take it home to eat later. you basically get two meals for the price of one, and everything I've had on the menu is delicious. the chicken...

Excellent promotion in conjunction with good wait staff and very good meals. The restaurant was very busy when we attended - said the wait would be 20 - 30 but it went fast at the bar - very good bartenders - asked for service and got it - nothing flat. The staff must be used to the routine as they... More

My son and I were in town for a Basketball tournament on a Sat. Night. We decided to eat here because he loves pasta, and I love the salad. We were told our wait would be 20 min., but surprisingly it was less than 10; perfect! Our waiter was great, and very attentive even though he was busy. Service, food... More
