Eastside Mario's - not bad

pengcast | Jun 15, 2008 06:06 AM

Had a pretty decent meal at EM. The calamari with the sauted peppers, onions and tomatoes was quite good. The gnocchi with tomato sauce and ricotta was better than I had expected. Certainly the gnocchi was not fresh, but I had not expected it to be. The salad was pretty average even for a family place. But in general I thought it was better than what I remember of my last visit to Olive Garden.

And it has turned out to be a good place to take my son who has nut allergies. The wait staff seems to have been very well trained in that area and were good about confirming that his order was safe for him.
