Good value for the money. Have been there twice, once when busy and once after it just opened. Service was too slow when busy but the last time it was excellent when not so busy, so go early for lunch.

It has been a while since I have been here. The place has been remodeled and opened up, so I assume that is why it was not as noisy as it has been in the past. On the other hand, it was a Monday and the place was 80% empty, The service was fast and friendly, salad and bread showed... More

Typically ESM is a good place to visit for any occasion, however my last visit ( yesterday ) was not what I had hoped for or expected. We were sat fairly quickly in the bar area under the big screen. Quite quickly it was apparent that the entire section was suffering from an extreme wind storm caused by the AC... More

We have enjoyed the meal and the service. In the menu is an opportunity to design your own Pasta dish which makes it easier for me, as I have some food allergies.

The Chicken Parmigiana, Hell's Kitchen Chicken, and many choices of pasta are very good and tasty. My kids are favourite with its pizza. On the other hand the Piada with Pizzaoila and Gorgonzola...

East Side Mario's is usually our go to place. Great food, great value. However, a visit last Sunday to this location in Cambridge Ontario was a bad experience. To start with we arrived early for the dinner hour and half the tables were empty. Half of those empty tables had not been bussed. We were only the second group in... More
