Popular east end restaurant is closing for awhile


Sandro’s Family Restaurant, located at 465 Trunk Road, is currently under renovation for 3 weeks and is set to reopen on March 15. Though this beloved restaurant will offer a more modernized space, they will continue to provide the handmade dishes and family friendly service their patrons have enjoyed for decades.

Since 1979, original restaurant owners Rose and the late Sandro Mariotti prided themselves and their staff on providing excellent quality food and efficient and friendly service for Sault Ste. Marie’s families. They have enjoyed watching their patrons evolve with the restaurant, and were proud to pass the restaurant management on to the next generation.

Rick, Fran and son-in-law Steve continue to run the restaurant with the same customer-centred philosophy that made their parents’ restaurant popular, but are giving Sandro’s a fresh look and an updated website, now live at http://www.sandrosrestaurant.ca. They will also be offering new potential menu items to add to their traditional favourites, which include handmade pasta dishes, fresh fish and North American comfort style foods.

To celebrate their reopening, Sandro’s is also giving away some free, scrumptious food. Just click here and tell us your favourite way to dine, enter your name and email, and you’ll have the chance to be one of the first to experience the new Sandro’s, with a free meal!

As of March 15, Sandro’s is open 7 days a week from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm Monday through Saturday and 7:00 am to 9:00 pm on Sundays, with takeout and delivery also available. For more information, or to place your order, call 705-253-7771.


  1. In response to your question, my favourite way to dine is slowly, with noise. Natural noises….. people talking and laughing, the sound of plates, the smell of my favourite pasta sauces. As I grow older I love to see generations coming together. Babies being passed around and fed the most basic food… bread.
    In a world so hectic and so busy and so political I love bringing my family together to let everyone just be together and catch up. (I also secretly love that I don’t have to do dishes but don’t tell anyone…. It will be our dirty little secret). I especially love your pasta sauce on fettucini with chicken. I could make it at home but you guys do it better and I can relax and enjoy my family’s company.
    I have recently enjoyed breakfast at Sandro’s. Who knew you could have a great breakfast at your favourite pasta restaurant!
    Thank you for contributing to family time. We may be absorbed with our own lives but we can all come together over food.
    Keep up the good work.

  2. Our breakfast gang restaurant for ever 20 years. Wonderful owners that are dear friends. Good food, great waitresses, always enjoyable spending time there. Hi Rose, Fran, Rick, Steve and staff. Miss you all. see you in May.
