Salad disappointing

I have always enjoyed the salad at this restaurant but last nite, I was really disappointed. It was entirely iceberg lettuce that was in large clumps and a bit browned at the edges and smelly. it used to be romaine lettuce and quite nice. We all are aware of the economy but the prices have risen... read more

Every time i come here i leave feeling like a teenager in the back got canned sauce (a bad one) and boiled noodles and microwaved the sauce and served me. I walked in today for the first time in a long while and i thought it looked amazing inside compared to before. Great TV setul, nice booths, little italy portraits... More

I wish we had this chain in the USA. East Side Mario's is a far superior alternative to Olive Garden. The pasta is homemade, the selections are authentic and all ingredients sourced locally.

We have not been to East Side Mario's in years. We always found it too noisy and overcrowded. What a difference. It has been renovated and totally transformed. My friends really wanted to eat there after Church so I agreed to go. The service was amazing, the menu was had a wide variety of choices. The soup was good, my... More

This has been my first visit to the guelph location since the renovations. Love how the bar layout is now different and the oversized booths. We were celebrating my daughter's public school graduation and enjoyed some great food and service. The changes to decore etc really made our supper feel more enjoyable.

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
