About Us

In the Beginning

We opened East Side Mario’s in 1987 to bring a little bit of Italy to our guests. We wanted to show you the hospitality and passion for great food that Italians are known for around the world – and have a little fun doing it. We’ve evolved over the years, but always with a focus on giving you delicious Italian meals at great value. Good times and great meals…that’s East Side Mario’s!

Our Commitment

Come empty, leave full! We are committed to creating dining experiences for our guests that capture the youthful and fun expression of today’s Italian lifestyle. We are the Home of All-You-Can-Eat soup, salad and garlic homeloaf. And, we deliver amore in everything we do!

Family First

If you know Italians, you know that family comes first. At East Side Mario’s, your family is our family! Most of our restaurants are family-owned and operated, and everything we do in our restaurants is to create a better experience for you, our extended family. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, or just a family dinner out, we know that you come to East Side Mario’s to make your occasion special, and we work hard to exceed your expectations.

Our Community

We care about our Canadian families and have a special place in our hearts for kids…our future employees and leaders. So we’re a very proud partner of Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, where we’ve created unique partnership programs that provide kids across the country with the skills and support they need to become productive members of their communities.

Become part of our Famiglia

Never been to East Side Mario’s? No problem…we’re always looking to add to our family. If you’ve been to East Side Mario’s in the past, you’re already family, but maybe it’s time to catch up. Either way, we can’t wait to see you!
