Scaddabush Italian Kitchen & Bar
The charity bread is so amazing. It’s worth the trip for that alone. The service was great, the food good and the parking was easy. It was a tad noisy for me with the buzz of customers and the music on top but that won’t stop me going back again. Love this place and will recommend it for a noisy gathering but not so much for an intimate date.
We truly enjoyed our dinner at Scaddabush. Our server was wonderful and she had a great sense of humour. Great time. Thank you.
Food and service was excellent!
Friendly service and a lively place that makes it a fun place to dine. Sadly the meal fell short of expectations with pasta that was way over done and seafood that was boiled rather then pan fried before being placed in the pasta.
They were more than happy to replace the dish only for it to be prepared in the same manner.
We’ll be back hoping for a better experience with the food as the service was top notch.
Highly recommend the gnocchi for dinner and the cheesecake for dessert ! We also enjoyed the polenta tots as a starter.
We were impressed with the “social” options on some of the items. We both wanted the gnocchi so we received a large platter family style at slightly less the price than two plates. We still had leftovers. The gnocchi were pillow soft yet perfectly browned. Delicious!
Was very happy with the food and service. Will return.
I would recommend Scaddabush but only to a younger group who can handle the noise level. The restaurant and food are great but I struggled to hold a conversation or be part of any conversations at our table because of the noise level. I guess this is just my issue. I wish I could handle it but I likely won’t go back. Despite the overall noise the DJ was playing great music.
One of my girlfriends and I had a great night out. We started by splitting the fried zucchini and then I ordered the roasted chicken with gnocchi and my friend ordered the butternut squash ravioli. Both meals were delicious except my gnocchi was a bit too al denote and seemed like it was one of those “packaged” gnocchis instead of being homemade, which they claim all their pastas are? I also really enjoyed the apple whiskey sangria that I ordered... food portions were huge so we were too full to order dessert. Would definitely go back!
Great food and service was good
Lunch with mom
Thé food and service were excellent. We just found it very noisy. They seem to turn the music up to drown out the talking but all that does is make everyone talk louder. They need noise barriers for sure. Otherwise it’s a great restaurant. If we return we’d try lunch or an early dinner before it gets so noisy.
The restaurant was very busy and even though we had a reservation, I was expecting a wait. We were seated right away. Lucy, our server, was very friendly and knowledgeable and when we asked about the pastas made in-house, about the mozzarella made in house as well. We were undecided about which meal to have and she was helpful and explained about them. Again I thought there may be a wait to get the food but it arrived promptly and got. Great portion too. I planned on taking some home but it was so good I ate it all. Overall a great experience. If I had to on small concern, it was a little loud but as mentioned, it was busy. Hope this helps.
Parking doesn’t seem to be adequate, as the lot was full and we had to park in another restaurant’s lot nearby. Tables are very close together ( at least where we were sat ) and it made for an uncomfortable experience to be elbow to elbow with another diner I did not know. Service was good. We enjoyed the burrata, a pizza and dessert. Half priced bottles of wine on Wednesday’s was a nice surprise. It is quite loud ( the music ).
All in all we will return.
Been to Scaddabush Burlington once before and enjoyed it. Ordered same thing I had before, chicken Parmesan with penne in a rose sauce. Took 1 bite of penne and it was hard! My friend tried some and said it wasn’t cooked. Sent it back and they made a new one. The penne was no different. I’ve eaten and cooked pasta for years and know al dente but this was definitely harder than that. I sent it back again and ordered what my friend has, gnocchi in mushroom truffle sauce which was excellent! Was told my meal would be taken care of but got bill and gnocchi was on it. Talked to manager, said she took off the 1st 2 meals but was charging me for gnocchi. I was not looking for a free meal but some kind of compensation for the inconvenience. My friend was
Everything was WONDERFUL and our server Dumptin was AWESOME!!!
I gave 3 bars out of 4 for noise level, but only because it was busy, already at 5pm on a Friday. Reminds me of Dolcetto in London, ON, which is our favourite local restaurant. 💗 I'd order a side salad with my gnocchi next time because although very tasty, it's nice to have a variety of mouthfuls throughout the meal. My partner loved his burger and upscaled fries.
I love Scaddabush, both its food and its ambiance. The mozzarella bar is impressive and delicious. I did not love my gnocchi (it tasted a bit hard and dense) but the sauce was incredible. I will just order something else on the menu. The meatballs are AMAZING. I will go again for sure.
Food was great. Way way too loud though- Why have a DJ blasting dance music in a restaurant at dinner time? Made it very difficult to hold a conversation.
Also, service was slow and left something to be desired.
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend. Started off with a pizza which was expertly prepared. Wine list was very varied and we chose an excellent Chianti. The menu offered excellent variety and we both enjoyed our entries.
Not impressed at all with the majority of the food. Service was good. Ambiance was quite lovely. But we had several issues and the appetizers were very disappointing. Won’t be back.
Good service & good food. Just wish they still offered the fantastic stuffed meatball they used to have.
The place was also very loud, probably because everyone had to shout over the so-called “music” in order to converse with each other. Come on, it’s a restaurant not a nightclub!
Scaddabush is an excellent restaurant. Their pizza and pasta are top notch. You MUST order a mozzarella ball as an appetizer.
Excellent service and food. We enjoyed our time there
Really enjoyed our meal but was week before Christmas so was very busy and therefore very noisy. Otherwise, food and service was very good. Will definitely go back. Liked the new decor since taking over from Canyon Creek.
2nd time here and definitely won’t be the last, service was great food was super.
The food was great! It was a bit too loud for us. Our waitress was soooo over exuberant it became a bit annoyingly funny but she’s trying I guess. We would definitely go back
The food and our experience was great. This was my second night in a row at this location. The staff and manager were super friendly and very helpful! Definitely one of my favourite restaurants.
Christmas get together with another couple.
A little too noisy for our liking, music selection was different!
More suited towards youthful families rather than an intimate date night.
Food was good value
The service could be better for a new opened restaurant. Never been to a restaurant before where my coffee came first and the waited 15 mins for my dessert.
Great dining experience !
An amazing dinner for our anniversary. We shared the truffel mozzarella the my wife enjoyed the butternut squash raviloi and I have diavolo pizza, amazing food we thoroughly enjoyed both meals. We then shared the a cheese cake that was the best ever.... oh did I mention the half price bottle of wine, not available at the LCBO... exceptional service we interacted with six managers servers and cook staff. Great experience we look forward to going back.
Anniversary our waitress Sue was fabulous and brought us out a treat and sparklers :)
Excited to have Scaddabush open now in Burlington! Overall great night out
It was my girlfriend birthday, the restaurant decor is lovely, loved the chandlers,servers were friendly & polite. Overall good food good service .
