East Side Mario's was OK - we had dinner, it wasn't all that bad, and the atmosphere was decent, even with a 12 year old. But...it just wasn't all that special. There was nothing about the pizza or the other entrees to lead us to really want to return. It was good food, but didn't really stand out.
The real... plus
we were part of big group, restaurant was very busy and we had to wait for the table to be available. Food - good, nothing spectacular, but good. Service was very nice, they even changed channel so we could watch basketball game.
I would recommend,
I ordered pasta gratiné, when my plate came I showed my server that it was not gratiné at all and that it was ok but I did not want to be charged. She said " of course, no problem", the daytime manager waited until my plate was done to tell me it was gratiné and that I would be charged... plus
