It is a great restaurant to go to with the family. Their pastas are ok not great. I am Italian and find it very Americanized. My favorite is the alfredo sauce. Their salads which come with the meals are good.

The renovated East Side Mario's is even better with a new, lively atmosphere. The food and service has always been first rate, as are other East Side Mario's but this one has become the traditional family celebration restaurant for special memorable events.

our waitress took my husbands meal off the bill , which we didn't ask for, but did tell her his food didn't taste good. I feel when a waitress comes & asks how your meal is & you say "fine" then complain to everyone else, it's not correcting the problem.

Had dinner there during the week with friends; no lineup. The exterior has been redecorated and looks great; the décor inside is nice too. We think they intentionally have more noise than some other restaurants as part of the atmosphere; not everyone loves this. Our server Megan was great; prompt and helpful; I wish every restaurant would have servers like... More

Tastless, Heavy, noisy and small portion for the price. I spent 60 dollars and still left the restaurant hungry. The pasta was so heavy on oil.

Had lunch for first time since the restaurant was renovated. new lunch menu looked promising so I had the new mushroom goat cheese salad which was nice.

Brennan is the best waiter I've ever had. Absolutely great, friendly service. Drinks were refilled before we asked for a refill. Salads came out quick and to order. Made our ESM experience very enjoyable.

Suited a very large group (24) on Easter weekend. We always like East Sides for our team travel dinners.

East Side Mario's is a chain, so the menu doesn't change often. The food is generally decent and it features several "all you can eat" options. Great for students (a large part of their cliental) as you can really fill up. Service is generally good and you won't wait long for your food. Good for family dining too!
