This restaurant seemed to be all out of much of the food on the menu. Italian restaurant out of pasta...

We visited for a mid-week dinner. The service provided by Lori was first-rate. We enjoyed our time with her. The food was served in a timely manner, the portions just right and piping hot. Everything was as expected for it not being a busy time.

Cannot say enough about this incredible soup. Your taste buds will sing a new song. Food is great service fast, friendly and funny. Staff was very present in the moment and the general atmosphere was great. Really liked the new renovated space. Great flair. Good job and great value.

My 2 children (aged 7 and 10) and myself went for dinner this evening at the Belleville East Side Mario's. My son ordered the big kids chicken fingers and fries (Caesar Salad), my daughter ordered the kids Capelleti (Italian Wedding Soup) and I ordered a fettuccini with mushrooms, onions, spinach, and sundried tomatoes (Minestroni soup). Our server was friendly and... More

Having never been to this chain before I got excited when I was told we're going for Italian but I can't say it was what I'd consider Italian. Very nice how you get complimentary garlic bread even if there wasn't really much garlic on it. And the never ending salad bowl is a neat idea. Overall though the food wasn't... More

Just came from supper at ESM and experienced probably the worst service ever!! We had to get our cutlery ourselves, weren't offered water, had to ask for pop refills and weren't given clean plates after our salad. It wasn't busy so there was really no excuse for poor service. The salad dressing is almost non-existent and what little of it... More

Went here this past Saturday night, we had 5 in our party. We waited at the hostess stand for a few minutes, only to be greeted by the hostess and inform us that they were short staffed and a table of 52 hockey players were keeping them busy so she could not sit us, even though we counted 7 empty...

The food you get here isn't five star by any means but it is good and filling and our kods love it here. They have a relaxed family atmosphere, the staff are always lovely and the food is good and won't break the bank on a family budget for a treat night out.

When travelling to Montreal, Belleville is a good place to stop for lunch because their are several options very close to the 401. This time we chose East Side Mario's. I had the spicy sausage penne. What would make this a 5 star dish would have been fresh pasta not dried. That being said, the pasta was cooked well and... More
