We have been going to East Side Mario's for about 4 years now and it is one of our favorites. Their mannacotti is our favorite, so much we have to split it, can't eat it by myself. Staff is fast and friendly. I can't help myself for trying to set the wait person at ease so our evening goes smooth and everyone has fun. I still get the bill! We have tried most of the menu and haven't had a dud yet, all are good.
I highly recommend this over Andiamo's, Olive Garden, DeLuca's any day. You need to have lots of money to go to Andiamo's, no bargins there, and a dress code. I just don't look right in a suit riding my motorcycle let alone the wife on the back in a dress!!
