Italian-Themed Food and Beverage Experiences
Had a great time hanging out with friends with great food
Great food, amazing food, good service. Check, check & check!! Awesome night overall.
Arrived early for reservation, but they seated us anyway.
Service and server was very good.
Good portion size and very tasty.
Ordered an appetizer and didn’t even get half way through and our main course came out. Seemed like we rushed to eat and pushed out the door. Will go back to the one on Gerard before going back to Front.
Was my first time there and really liked it. My husband had been there with our son and they both had enjoyed their meals there. Our server, Stephanie, was outstanding. She gave excellent recommendations. Would definitely go back.
We were somewhat disappointed with both the service and the food at this location. Our server wasn't aware that a special discount is offered for TSO subscribers and the chef forgot to put the Parmesan cheese on my Caesar Salad. It was a bit of a lackluster lunch.
I had 3 double cocktails over dinner and socializing and didn't even feel the tiniest, slightest "buzz". The most expensive non-alcoholic-alcohol drinks I've ever had.
First time visit and we'll go back to experience it again. Overall very good. It is very noisy so hard to carry on a conversation - it won't be a quiet conversation. Appetizers were exceptional (Avocado Zucca Ravioli was ok flavour but was lukewarm and a bit dry. Cheesecake for dessert was excellent. Service was acceptable - waiters seem to cover a large area and have lots to look after. Our waiter was very friendly but could have been a bit more attentive. Worth trying!
Great food just what we needed after a long flight , only thing that did annoy me I left a 30% tip and I didn’t even get a “thank you “
If someone gives you a tip , it doesn’t cost anything to say “thanks”
Excellent food options and quality
Excellent service and food was very good.
Simple Italian food but good. Great atmosphere and wonderful service. Mozzarella was wonderful way to start the meal. Pasta portions are huge so recommend small. Would definitely go back.
- Good location as a pre-game meal when going to a Leafs game
- great appetizers including the La Bomba Mozzarella
Things to improve on:
- inconsistent meal prep for the same dish. We’ve ordered the same style pizza 3 times now, it’s come different each time, great, average, and below average
- communication among staff. I booked a special occasion on the App for a family birthday. Upon arrival a manager confirmed this with me. After the meal, server presented the bill and was oblivious to the request.
- consider more space for a 2-person party. We were crammed into a corner, with the next table about 6 inches over, it felt like we joined the other party for their meal
The server Damien was awesome! Should be a role model not just in this restaurant but in the industry!
Proactive, responsive, quick thinking, fun and and totally on his game with the order the service the billing -all of it!
PS:I stopped checking the boxes above: what’s not to like.
Dishes are dirty that I have to replace them twice
Floor is super slippery
The bread for the app was cold and seems hard. Not sure if that is the way it was supposed to be or not.
Our reservation wasn't ready so they sar us temporarily and then went to move us and we went to our table, that table was also taken so back to our original temporary spot...which was ok.
Noise level a bit high.... difficulty to hear conversations
Our waitress must have had a bad day - we weren’t treated professionally at all. Asked for hot water to warm up a baby’s bottle and she never came back with anything. Finally after ten minutes I walked up to the bar where they helped me instantly. When she saw this she came over to the table and said oh yeah I was about to do that. The rest of the evening she seemed like her mind was elsewhere and was not enthusiastic about anything at all. Like I said, it could’ve been a bad day for her.
The food was a little spicy for my taste and my husband's. It was VERY noisy. Had to yell across the table to be heard. Service was good. Wine list was not spectacular.
We have been to the Scarborough location several times before and found that the food is much better there. We were at tge Front st location on Sat for my dad's 80th birthday. My dad, my brother and my daughter were really looking forward to having the meatball again but was a big disappointment as it had an unusual strange taste. They ended up only eating the side pasta. My fennel & sausage pasta was lacking taste. Also asked if the restaurant does anything special for birthdays and they said that they offer a little dessert in a jar with a sparkler but they then said they ran out of sparkler plus charged $3 for the dessert. Lol Will not go back. 😕
Staff very accommodating.
Food quite good and good value.
Food was amazing! Atmosphere is great! Try the motzerella balls, garlic bread and butternut squash ravioli! The drinks are great too!
Fresh mozzarella was not as good as it was made out to be...rubbery!
My kids love Scaddabush, so I take them there for our "dates" out when we are seeing a concert or visiting downtown. If it wasn't for the kids, I would pick something a bit more authentic. I find the menu options, especially in terms of pasta and pizza, has a very small selection to pick from. My experience this time around was MUCH better then my previous visit. I had the Blood Orange Bellini with my meal and found it just fair. My son had the pasta with meat sauce. He was very happy with his meal and enjoyed making the sundae at the end.
Great location and excellent service by Joey
with a daughter with celiac alergy awesome choices...
Service was amazing and our waitress was fantastic. My friend arrived earlier than I did and I ended up running extremely late (close to 45 minutes late) due to delays with the subway and busses and I had no way of letting my friend know where I was, how late I was going to be etc. and our waitress was just so understanding and didn't rush my friend or question her. Once I arrived she assured me everything was okay after my constant apologizing and she was on top of everything the entire meal!
The atmosphere is good but it's way too loud to carry on a conversation. Seating is quick. Half price pizza is really good on Sunday afternoons.
We were very impressed with the food and friendly service
Especially liked the option to have a small or regular portion
My wife and I are so happy with the warm and engaging Servers & the food moxie! My wife has a mobility limitation and we also appreciate the training that you give your team - they smoothly respond with the door and where to seat us. Very Nice.
So anything to improve? 1. An interesting menu is only great if you are not “out of stock”; two days ago, the Front Street location (Toronto) was out of all the desserts that our table chose!??
2. How about adding a Family Bathroom? Sometimes it turns out that I have to help my wife - never easy to enter the Ladies Washroom!
Enjoyed our lunch get together at Scaddabush on Front.
Great food and great service. I would highly recommend.
Pasta at Scaddabush never disappoints! It's fresh and always delicious. My only criticism is that I was hoping to have a traditional caprese salad, but it came out as arugula topped with chopped tomato and crumbled mozzarella. I hope they change it, but still was tasty.
Great food, service. Close proximity to the venue we were attending that evening. Price was right
We had a great evening with outstanding and friendly service. The food was excellent.
Attended with friends.. first time they were there and enjoyed it !!
Only issue we had that made dining difficult was that is was very warm in the area of the restaurant we were at
The kids were very eager to leave ASAP. As they were sweating... which was too bad
Awesome food and service. Always come here at least once when visiting Toronto
For pasta you've got to go to scaddabush!
I had spaghetti with shrinks and my wie had the gnochi. Fantastic, both!
Music was a little loud bu that fitted the restaurant.
Our waiter was verry good, kind, friendly, knee huis job. Thans.
Coming from Holland I can not Say see you again but...
C'était une bonne expérience et nous avons eu un bon serveur.
