The food is great. We had a party of 40 in the back party room. The place was packed and I thought this is going to take a long time. Not at all. They were quick getting the food out and everyone was happy with the quality of food. My shrimp and scallop pasta was great. I was amazed at how quickly they served everyone.

Amazing food that is consistently good!
The wait staff is very good and attentive
unless it is so crowded even an octopus
would have a time getting it all done!
I recommend it highly.

Really enjoy this restaurant. But is very obvious the young man who is the manager, does not like his job and always grumpy and rude. I say get a grip or quit. A lot of very friendly people looking for a job.

East side pizza isn't laid out like most pizza places. Has more of a restaurant feel and can accommodate large groups. My girls and I have been coming for many years now. We always enjoy the pizza on girls night out.

they need a better waitstaff .Try a few men they are great waiters , Everytime I go there the gals a huddled up talking to each other .Why is that allowed /? Great looking place and the food is pretty good . But the service sucks .

My family of 11 went to East Side tonight. We ordered 3 pizzas. Two East Side Specials and one East Side Special with out mushrooms. I am very allergic to mushrooms. I get food poisoning like symtoms so we made sure that we told the waitress not to come in contact with mushrooms. We a little bit later the two loaded pizzas came out and the one without mushrooms didn't. We waited and waited. By the time the other to pizzas were gone and we still haven't gotten the one with out mushrooms still hadn't showed up we were trying very hard not to get to upset. Finally it came out. My mom, niece and I dug in. I was about half way through my piece when my niece said she found a MUSHROOM. Well of course I looked a my piece and the rest on the tray and sure enough mushrooms. I stopped eating and we got the attention of the owner. The owner came over and we told him what happened and all he could say was that's not good and would you like another pizza. Of course I said no. I explained that if I had a life threating reaction things could be very different. Then he walked away. REALLY?!!! Some time later our waitress came over to give us our check. We weren't charged for the mushroom pizza and we got an extra 10% off. I will not be going back and I hope if you have allergies you will watch what you order.

Been there several time before the expansion and several times since. Never ever a disappointment. I gotta say that they have some damn good chow!! And yes I will come back again and again.

Prices quite high for what is served. I eaten there several times because it's convenient and I keep telling myself it was just a bad night but every night in the last 5 times have been lousy. The pizza I have ordered 2 times. The crust is almost black yet the center of the pizza is luke warm and gooey. You'd think if it's nearly burnt on the bottom and ends it would at least be hot and crispy. Nope, I don't know how they manage it. Linguini with clam sauce is alright it tastes fairly well. However, you'd think for the price, $19.99, there would be more than 8 clams. It's just not worth the money anymore. The food was delicious years ago but it has certainly gone downhill in the last several months and the prices have risen. The only thing this restaurant has going for it is the wait staff. Most are all friendly and work very hard to try to please.

I enjoyed my oven brick baked pepperoni pizza!

I'm not from chicago, so I don't have to pretend I'm an expert. I love the pizza, and the fact it's not in chicago.

It is a nice place to have good pizza. I like the salads best of all...lots of feta cheese! Today was a disappointment because the Greek salad was made with the white part of the lettuce and only one small green almost rotten leaf. There were small bits of black leaf parts on the bottom. I think it must have been the bottom of the crisper. Also it needs some new seats. It is still a local favorite.

This place is awesome, especially the pizza cheesesteak sub

Being from Chicago, I know the true meaning of a stuffed pizza. Although the crust is good, East Side Pizza does not know the true meaning of a stuffed pizza. Their version of a stuffed pizza turns out to be flat without the true definition of depth like, a true Chicago deep dish pizza/stuffed pizza. Perhaps next time East Side Pizza will get it right after a few more attempts.

This place is amazing !! I have eaten here probably 25 times and they have the greatest Italian food anywhere. I rank them right up there with the best, you can't get in the door on Friday nights ! Great pizza, great subs, awesome Greek salads, the works !! Highly recommend !
