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.

Food and service were on par for what you would expect at this type of restaurant. Great place for a meal - no complaints; other than the noise level.
Would recommend for a casual meal out.

Waitress was very pleasant. Ordered appetizers and a salad. Everything was very good. Ordered the fried dough and vanilla gelato for dessert. Took over 20 minutes to arrive and they were burnt and dried out and was told they were out of the gelato. It shouldn’t take longer to get your dessert than your other food.

The manager at this location, Richard, is horrible. I had reservations booked 4 days in advance for 6 people. Called twice day of reservations to make sure we were seated on the bar side. When I got there, he told me he double booked the table and sat me at a table for 5 in the dining area, telling me he cant do anything and left. Didn't even try to help. Thankfully his staff picked up his slack and found a table for us.

Patio door was left open while bus boys were clearing patio tables, it was very windy and was making our food cold (we were seated in the booth table in front of the patio doors, approx 1030pm) We had to ask 2 separate servers at 2 different times to pls close the patio doors, as the bus boys left them open several times.

We had two children under 6 years and our server, Josh, strategically served their meals so that the children were fed and kept occupied. The other staff assisted as well in a nice team effort.

Food was outstanding. The server was very good. The hostess at the front did not check off that we had arrived and as a result I received an email part way through dinner from your office saying we had not arrived for our reservation. I asked the host to rectify that which he happily did. Thank you very much.

We assumed it was half price wine because it is on Wednesday’s at other near by location. Turns out it wasn’t but only realized this after receiving the bill. The website should just list which locations participate. We moved tables to accommodate a larger group and they took our plates and food away instead of moving to the new table. We then asked for fresh gluten free bread for what little cheese we had left and they first said it would be extra charge and then brought out regular bread. The whole experience was just terrible and I won’t be returning.

We went to dinner prior to attending a play. The appetizers and meals were very tasty. Everyone enjoyed the food in my party. There were 6 of us in total, no children were present. I would definitely go again.

Once we got past the on-going FOH issues; the rest of the dining experience was great.
The 'TWO SAMS' (Behind The Bar) are 'Laser Focused' on Customer Service and are very
knowledgeable about Wine Pairings with Meals.

BRAVO !

NOTE:
The Wi-Fi is still very sketchy and is affecting the business; as some customers continue to walk out in frustration.

This is a busy spot in a core Downtown usually used for business lunches. I was served with a wrong order , by the time the server told me that i was digging into a wrong salad, i had no time to linger around …

The servers came by the table often ( but not more than necessary) to ensure we had what we needed and we were taken care of. The white sangria was one of the best I've tasted. Appreciated that they put the fruit and ice directly into the cup instead of diluting the sangria mix in the pitcher. Food was fresh!

The lights hanging from the ceiling on the bar side obstruct the view of the TVs from certain seats. that was a bit annoying if you're going there specifically to watch a sports game.

My best friend and I were in Toronto to see a comedy show at the Sony Arts Theatre and decided to make a reservation at Scaddabush for dinner and we were lucky we did! We got there and it was so busy, it’s clearly a popular spot! The service was great, food was great, drinks were great, and I wouldn’t hesitate to make another reservation there!

The food was really good, moderately priced, and the service was excellent. It's a big restaurant and I generally prefer a more intimate restaurant because of the noise level from people talking, the semi-loud music, and eventually the tv screens were even louder to play the Raptors' game. But I'm of an older generation that tends to prefer a quieter atmosphere than the younger crowd for whom it's trendy to dine with loud music.
