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've been here before, but on this particular night, hostess and waitstaff seemed disorganized. We had made a reservation for 6:00 for 5 people, and even though there were many tables available, the hostess seemed befuddled as to where to put us. Not sure if wait staff had called in sick for that evening, but even though the restaurant was not busy, it took a while to get our drink order, then it took a while to get our meals. The ladies washroom was not overly dirty, but it looked like it hadn't been attended to for a while. Toilet paper was hanging over the edge of toilets, about 3 toilets were not flushed. It just seemed like an 'off' night for this shift.

The food was cold, the pizza very poor- little toppings & cold for $18.95. Service very poor. The special Mozzarella appetizer, which we have had many times, was cold and tough. We have been there many times and enjoyed ourselves. This past time it was terrible.

While our server was fantastic, we found the food to be not so good . A little disappointing and definitely overpriced for what is was. The seating was a little crammed

Food is tasty, but the service is terrible.
Kitchen is very slow and the restaurant was half empty.
Was waiting for the food for a very long time.
Vine glasses were dirty with lipstick on it.
White bottle of wine was not cold enough and it took very long to get the box with ice.
Desserts were served with a huge delay after we refused to wait anymore.

Great place to talk over dinner. Not too loud and the service was amazing. Later in the evening the sound on the TVs was turned up and the restaurant filled up with people strictly there for the game. There is a second dining area without the bar that you can sit in if you want a more quiet type arrangement

I’ve been to scaddabush in Vaughan many times and the experience was always positive and enjoyable but this time we had a terrible rude server. His name was Anton, we were at table 55, check # 626027 time was 9:18pm and date 04/10/19.
Anton would approach the table and interrupt rudely on several occasions and seemed to be annoyed by us. We had asked for a new glass of water and he pointed to the glass on the table and said ...”you already have one “. Then he came by to clear the table and was taking things off the table before asking us if we were done so we asked him to leave everything because we were not . Then he asked us to settle our bill at 9:18pm because he said he was leaving for the night so we settled up the bill and he never left, he was there until after 11:20 pm which is when we left. We still wanted dessert and coffee and he never came back to ask if we wanted anything else. He was rude, not at all polite and blatantly lied about leaving so that we could settle our bill in hopes that we would leave.
The experience was awful, especially because it was a special occasion for us which he ruined.
I will have to think twice about returning to Scaddabush and unfortunately this story will be told to others when asked how our night was.
When you have great experiences you share them with others, encouraging them to try the restaurant because of the food and service, the whole experience but unfortunately that will not be the case here.
I am Not a happy customer and I speak for my whole table, party of 3 women.

Food quality and service were exceptional and amazing. I highly recommend the pepperoni pizza and be extra caution on the amount of pepperoni. I recommend asking for half the amount.

Our Server was outstanding. She was knowledgeable, provided us with excellent suggestions, conversed with us and provided a truly excellent experience. I did ask for her name because I wanted to share our positive remarks but I'm sorry I have since forgotten it (maybe Kate or Katie...?). If her team might source who served us, we would like her to receive the positive feedback. She exemplified true hospitality and made our time at Scaddabush memorable. We will certainly be back if the service remains that outstanding. Thanks!

Two of us had lunch.The service was good, efficient.One of us had a chicken parmesan plate which was delicious and the other had a shrimp pasta which was very tasty.We ordered the smaller portions as opposed to a dinner size.The shrimp dish portion was not enough for what it cost,I expected more and it wouldn't cost them much to give a more generous portion.

I like this place. The food is decent and the service is great. I'd say pastas are their forte, the other dishes sounded better on the menu but were good at most, nothing mind-blowing. Still, will come back, it is a nice place overall.

Great experience!! Love the ambiance -it’s very romantic. I loved the artichoke dip. I had their gnocchi gorgonzola which was very flavourful but the pasta was over cooked a little bit. Gnocchi should melt in your mouth! The one I had was a little chewy and kinda tough. Regardless, the flavours were amazing. I hope to be back :)

We arrived at 3:30pm on a Saturday. We came as a group of 5. We were celebrating my husbands birthday. We were placed at a long table shared with other patrons. We had a reservation. Many other tables were available when we arrived. Service was okay until we received our meals. After that waitress didn’t come by. She only came by collect empty glasses and didn’t ask if we wanted anything else or even the bill. I ordered a pop and didn’t even get asked for a refill. We sat there for another hour and she didn’t come by. She kept walking by the table but didn’t check in to see if we needed anything. I tried numerous occasions to get her attention but she quickly walked by each time. I had to ask a manager for the bills. He then asked someone else to cash us out. Took 15 mins to get the bills. We still never seen our waitress. Overall bad experience with staff. Food portions were smaller than previously. Ran out of desserts before the dinner rush on a Saturday.

A decent meal, but could have been a bit better. Fresh mozzarella was very nice, Caesar salad needed a bit more dressing (or a more flavourful dressing - umami!), pasta pollo was over salted (I suspect the pesto was over salted when the chef needs to be careful due to the Parmesan). Cocktails were great. Service was friendly and food came promptly, but it took a long time to get the bill and then wait for the payment machine.

Food was good as usual. My husband wasn’t sure about coming here for his birthday. The gnocchi dish convinced him he will come back next time. He loved the food but wasn’t too fond of the atmosphere at the bar. Will try dining room next.
