It's a little of this, a little of that and a whole new take on Italian.
Our story is simple. Everything we can make fresh daily, we do. Including our hand-stretched mozzarella (made-to-order every day between 5pm & 11pm), our pasta, our signature 1/2 lb meatballs, our dough, bread and desserts.

I have to say that our overall experience was good. We were promptly seated even though we were early. The food arrived quickly and the pizza Sophia was especially good. Their twist on bruschetta with avocado was interesting and not bad but I will stick with the traditional variety in future; the bread seemed a little stale too. My wife especially liked the coffee at the end of the meal. Over all a good experience and we'll likely be back.

Nice evening. We were given a quieter table at the back which was what we asked for. Thank you.

It was Mother's Day and the staff was very accommodating when we walked in an hour earlier than our reservation. They sat us almost immediately and our server was incredibly pleasant, chipper, and informative. She was attentive and gave us honest opinions as 1 of the guests had never been at Scaddabush before. The food came in the time expected and it was fantastic. The pastas they make in house taste spectacular! We would definitely go again and recommend this place to friends and family.

It started very well but I think that if you order an appetizer, they shouldn’t bring it with your main unless you as the customer asks for that. We ended up rushing through our apps and still ate our meal lukewarm at best. Not a good experience.

We had a reservation on a Friday at 6:45 pm, and of course 7/8 pm is the busiest a restaurant is going to be, but unfortunately our server neglected us during service, and was barely friendly or welcoming. It was fine until we ordered entrees. Another server came out with our entree's but no one had cleared our appetizers. We weren't happy with how one of the dishes looked and wanted to ask our server if this was the way it was supposed to be. We also of course wanted some good ol' parmesan and pepper. Our server was nowhere to be found. She didn't do a quality check, or even bother to see if our food had arrived in the first place. My friend had to get up to ask a busser to find her. When we saw her again, she was taking other people's orders and clearing tables. She then comes up to the table beside us, and as she's about to take their order we grab her attention, and she says "everything ok?" in a tone that really did not sound like she was trying to check on us, or like she was surprised that we would be asking for her. We let her know what we needed. She took away the dish to get a new one, but never made sure we got pepper and parm till much later, so our food wasn't very warm by the time we finally got some parm on it. I get that it's hard when a section is completely full on a friday night, but unfortunately it really affected our overall experience with how unwelcoming and neglectful she was.

The experience was good, definitely better than the last time I was there; which is really why I was returning. I was given a gift certificate because the last time I went to this location, so many things went wrong. I had to use the certificate because it was about to expire. I came in for my birthday. When making the reservation, it asked what the occasion was and it was specified that it was for a birthday, even when confirming the reservation, it was indicated that it was for a birthday. I know that they do things for birthdays, but not once did we see anything. At that point, it felt pointless to bring it up because clearly, they don't pay attention to detail. The only thing that redeemed this experience was our server and the company I attended dinner with. If it wasn't for the certificate, I wouldn't have come in. I certainly don't see myself voluntarily going back there nor will I refer it to anyone else. I will definitely take my business elsewhere.

This was a good spot for an after theatre meal with a friend. The waiter was fantastic, telling us about the restaurant and food as it was my first time. He allowed us ample time to visit and enjoy our meal without feeling rushed. The food was good although my pasta was a little undercooked for my taste. The dessert menu did not have any of my favourites. I would still go back and try some other things on the menu.

My first time. We enjoyed ourselves...great ambiance. Food was oustanding and flavourful. And the portions are very generous. Our waiter was very good - just the right balance of attentiveness and friendly. Plan to return : )

We had three different servers so never knew who to ask when we had an issue with the food quality. Finally had our server see us

Chicken Bacon Avocado Sandwich - Caesar side was drenched/submerged in dressing. The bread was BURNT and chicken was also BURNT.

Pasta bologna - was slightly warm.

Server had our meal replaced and second time was much better.

The service was good. We received our food quickly and our server was very nice. They dealt with the allergies in our party well. We were happy that they gave us a bottle of water for the table so that we didn't have to keep hassling the waitress for refills. Overall we had a nice time and were in and out of the restaurant in 45 minutes which allowed us to catch our show!

Gluten free options were very much appreciated as always. 4 of six had regular menu items and they were acceptable but not really exceptional. Meatball that is promoted is average and tastes like lots of filler. Pan fried calamari, which we asked to be adjusted, ended up as a kind of soup. Suspect this was a communication issue of ours. Server did not fill drinks requests for three of us for well into the meal and had to be reminded a couple of times. It is a convenient location to sports events though food takes some time to arrive. The reason we go is there are few spots that offer gluten free options.

My friend is vegetarian and I'm sort of vegetarian... we chose the vegetarian pasta entry and it was okay, but not excellent. Lacked oomph. The garlic bread that accompanied it was good, though, and the service was pretty prompt and our server was very congenial. Maybe more chilis or something in the pasta to jazz it up a bit.

Nice variety on the menu, fair prices and food quality was very good. Restaurant was packed but we got seated quickly and the service staff did a very good job on our order. Even got help from a waitress who wasn't assigned to our table. Definitely recommend for before/after events at ACC, Rogers Centre, Roy Thomson, theatre on King etc

My husband and I had a date night here. I had the roasted fennel and sausage pasta and my husband had the bacon and egg pizza. We also had a mozzarella starter with prosciutto and fig jam. Everything we had was amazing. We were so impressed with our meals. Our waitress took a long time to get to us but we found out afterwards that they were short staffed that night so it wasn’t her fault. Overall it was a great meal!

The place was very lively. I found the music too loud for dinner hours.
My husband had the chicken parmesan and it was delicious, first time I've had fresh pasta and you can really tell the difference.
I had the penne Bolognese. Really good but my only complaint was the temperature wasn't hot enough. I didn't say anything because the server was obviously really busy.
Service was great...not everything can be perfect.
Oh, and the charity bread was so good! Garlicky, crunchy and addictive!
