Description: Eastside Mario's is an exciting family restaurant that offers cuisine inspired by Little Italy in the heart of New York. Our traditional Italian fare is mixed with comfort foods and classic Canadian dishes. A trip to Eastside Mario's resembles a visit to one of New York City's most acclaimed and popular regions. We offer a streetscape decor that puts you at the corner of Canal and Mulberry. Authentic storefronts and tenement buildings give you the feel of eating in a vibrant and bustling city street. Service inspired by the energy of Little Italy makes every visit unique. You can also join us in the Liberty Bar, a throwback to a prohibition-era speak-easy where we offer up half priced appetizers daily. Enjoy our popular Gahan handcrafted ales or one of our signature cocktails while watching your favourite team on our 90 inch projector, 60 inch flat screen and 4 other TV's.Half-priced appetizers are available Mon-Thurs 4-6pm & 9pm-close, Fri-Sat 9pm-close and Sun 4-6pm and 9pm-close in the Liberty Bar. There's always more to make you smile at Eastside Mario's. General Manager, Mike Roberts and Assistant General Manager, Jessica Doyle, are always there for you!

“Another Murphy's garbage restaurant”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Food is in a bag and microwaved. Takes lots of skill to cook like this. Caeser salad is soggy, service is crap. Just another restaurant owned by the murphy's that has nothing good going for it, but they have so many restaurants that tourists can't avoid going to them one way or the other. I've been to other East Side's and at least the salad is fresh and not made 2 hours in advance.

“Great food, great service!”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

Every time my husband and I eat here we have a great experience! Whether you are looking for a full meal or just munchies the menu has lots to offer. The food is great and the service is fast and friendly. Highly recommended.

“Decent Italian cuisine for PEI”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

First time we visited we were in love with this establishment. The second time we were disenchanted, must have changed chefs. Service was good food just was not as good.

“As reliable as Mom's cooking”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

Great place for business, family or date dining. The service and food is always excellent. Same pricing as Boston Pizza and a much better choice (in Charlottetown anyway) value and quality -wise.

“Average atmosphere, ok food, loud staff”
Reviewed September 11, 2011

My family and I were seated right by the kitchen/pizza oven station. Throughout, the staff was loud and unimpressive --- we saw them drinking their pop from doubled straws, heard about their weekend plans and the behaviour of some of their tables, according to the server. Not cool.

Our waitress was fine, but never did get back to us about the root beer --- apparently she needed someone to go downstairs to refill the syrup, but that never happened, so no more root beer - but she didn't tell us, she just never came back. The food was okay, standard pasta, but the chicken sandwich was on warm toast, but cold chicken with minimal mayo/sauce. I managed to choke down only half of it, and left the rest. Vegetable and Italian Wedding soups were good, and the free bread filled up what the sandwich didn't.

Overall, an average meal. Not sure if we will be back.
