Italian
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.

Service started off well but declined as evening went on. Coffee served cold (yuck), server disappeared and never returned to cork the wine in order to take it to go as was suggested by server in the first place. “Oven-roasted chicken” implies a quarter or half chicken. You should make it more clear it instead means skinless boneless chicken breast. The chicken tasted good but it wasn’t what I was expecting. Thanks.

The service was horrid. The food took over an hour with no apology from the waiter. Had to escalate to the manager. Food was cold. Overall horrifying experience.

Five of us had Sunday brunch here. Service was great, food was very tasty and its presentation was awesome. The restaurant was quiet crowd-wise and enjoyable. The only slightly annoying thing was that the music was a bit too loud, so it was hard to make conversation. Wish it was like a pleasant background as the playlist was quite good, not a feature :) But overall we love Scaddabush anyway - it was third location we tried so far and we never had bad experience. Definitely will return again.

Decided on Scaddabush for Valentine’s Day because it’s our favourite! With it being one of the busiest days, we knew there would be a longer of a wait time than usual.. I was WRONG! Our reservations were for 8:00pm but we were promptly seated when we arrived at 7:45pm. Our server was Danielle K. and she was AWESOME!! She was very kind and so attentive. She definitely exceeded beyond our expectations of dining out and customer service. Food came very quickly and super tasty!! I ordered the chicken and shrimp pasta and my boyfriend ordered the chicken parmigiana. We can’t wait to come back again. Thank you Danielle K. and management for making Valentine’s 2020 an amazing one!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

When we arrived we ended up behind a group and they gave our reservation away to the group in front. We said we would sit at a high top table with two small children, because the table had been offered to those ahead of us in line. We ordered everything and the service was good but once the mains arrived the waiter did not come back for a very long time. When he came back he offered dessert and we said yes; however, a dessert menu never arrived so eventually we got one from the front desk. Also, at this time scaddabush must have reported to OpenTable that we missed our reservation while we were sitting in the restaurant because they had given the table to another group. Eventually we gave up on dessert and asked for the bill from the front desk because our waiter never came back. Normally have a great time at this location but tonight it was disappointing.

We ordered the balsamic mozzarella, primavera pizza, mushroom gnocchi, penne, tiramisu and jar chocolate cake.

Service was super slow. Our waitress didn't refill the water on the table, didn't come to check on us until we finished a course. It didn't feel like we were being attended to.

I didn't find the Mozzarella to be anything special. Gnocchi was very chewy and I could not find any mushrooms in that dish. If you want to have soft, melt-in-your-mouth, pillow- y gnocchi try the one at Beaumont Kitchen at Saks in Sherway Gardens across the street - that's the best gnocchi I've had so far.

Pizza was ok as was the penne. Desserts were typical too. Nothing extraordinary. 850 Degrees pizzeria on Lakeshore Blvd is my favorite pizza place - they have the best pizzas in the area and their desserts are very tasty too.

The place was very noisy. I had to scream to be heard. My voice was hoarse by the end of dinner. I would not recommend this place nor would I visit there again, if I had a choice.

The food was still very good and good value, but it was an extremely busy night and the kitchen seemed ill-prepared to handle all the orders coming in. We waited for a very long time to receive our food.

There were not many people at the restaurant during our reservation time - however the service was extremely slow and none existent at times. I have eaten at other Scaddabush restaurants in the past and had much better service and quantity of food. Same dishes that I ordered at other locations were prepared much better then what we experienced at the Sherway Gardens location. Overall it was not a pleasant experience.

Some of my party arrived before I did, when they told the host the name of the reservation, he told them that there was no reservation under that name. He was getting annoyed and even showed them the screen of his monitor and sure enough my name and reservation was right there. I get it that sometimes it can be overwhelming when it’s packed and busy, but maybe he can show a little kindness and not make us feel that we were making up reservations in our head. The waitress we had was amazing, again it was a busy night so it took a long time for her to come around and bring us our drinks and meal, other than that she was very courteous. The music was extremely loud, the last time I checked, this was a restaurant and not a night club. Most of the people who were dining in that night are families with small children. My guests and I could not even hear each other, the waitress kept asking us to repeat our order because it was just way too loud. We did ask for the waitress to see if she can ask if the volume can be adjusted which they did but after a few minutes just went back up on a higher volume. The food was amazing, this is probably my 6th or 7th time at this location and the food never disappoints, always consistent. Just took a long time to get to us.

Pasta was fresh, Pizza was delicious, Pork Sandwich, Parm sandwich we’re fine as were the Caesar Salads.

Appetizers came out at the same time as the meal. Which wasn’t great. No bread to snack on prior to meal. Would seem simple enough to offer.

Music was way too loud for an early afternoon lunch. Not many ppl in rest, music level dominated room.

As previous ppl pointed out, the lighting keeps changing. Bright, dim, dark. Was just weird and distracting.

Overall the food was good. Atmosphere and service could be better. Price was right for fresh made pasta etc.

Scattabush sucks. Firstly, I didn't go there today- a friend made the reservation in my name as a prank bc she's knows I think Scattabush is an overrated big box with a hipster name; she was just bored waiting for a flight. But the LAST time I went it was dreadful. The food is bland, boring & tasteless. People that eat at these chains are ignorant of the good places to eat at. Another thing that was really annoying was 2 kids we're running around screaming the whole time. I would say they have bad parents but they were my friends kids at my table so I can't too be too critical.

I went to Bar Raval on Collegue last night and it was fantastic. The notion of following that up with Scattabush is absurd. But thanks for asking OpenTable. Happy Labour Day.

We were celebrating a birthday which we made known but nothing special was done about it. It wasn’t even acknowledged by the server.

The server seemed to forget about us toward the end of our meal and it took some time for us to get our bills.

We enjoyed a family sharing platter style with friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and authenticity of updated menu features. Both kids and adults alike enjoyed sharing the freshly stretched mozzarella, zuchhini stacks and calamari to start. Service was attentive and quick. Mains that were a mix of Pastas and Pizzas were delicious across the board too!

The restaurant was far too noisy. It was impossible to have a conversation. Our server did have the music volume turned down a bit but it didn't help much. Our server told us that she often goes home with a headache after a shift working at the noise level. We all ordered salads. The two without an added protein came came out in fairly good time but the other four salads came about fifteen minutes later. We won't be back and we won't recommend it to anyone else.
