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.

Went with my husband for dinner and next morning he had stomach issues in the morning thinking it was his chicken parmajan. Not happy to pay for bad food!

Food was mediocre at best - I had only been to this location once before and had a good experience. This time we felt very rushed by the wait staff and the food was disappointing. The manager did come over to discuss and address our concerns which was greatly appreciated.

Was not impressed to revive an email from OpenTable saying that we didn’t honour our reservation which obviously we did, not sure where the lack of communication happened between them and the restaurant but it has since been resolved.

I went with my kids on Saturday, and we ordered the usual, mozzarella with procuito which was very good. My daughter and I shared the lemon garlic shrimp pasta which was good, but not as lemony as it usually is, and a little more oily than usual too. My son had the funghi pizza. He enjoyed it but found it a bit too spicy.
Our waiter was lovely, and so was the greeter.
Thank you

From the moment we entered to the moment we left, the hostesses and the servers were top notch. They got us to our table right away, took our order without delay, grabbed our cheque without delay. The ambiance of the whole place was very lively and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves! The only qualm I had about the place was the originality, taste and quality of the food. There was nothing super original about the menu (no house specials from what I was able to see). The bruschetta was delicious but the tomato and fennel soup was too creamy and had no hint of fennel. I would’ve preferred the bread to be served on the side instead of inside the soup (because it turned to mush in seconds after receiving the place). The BLT was subpar (more seasoning necessary) and fries were akin to the frozen ones and served with ketchup (they should’ve been given with a special aioli). Overall 4/5.
PS, we came for a birthday celebration so it would’ve been nice for the dessert to come with a small candle on top. I made it clear to the hostess that we came for a birthday so it may have slipped her mind, oh well.

The fresh mozzarella was outstanding, our server Gregory was most courteous and professional and somehow organized a beautiful tray of deserts to celebrate our triple birthday celebration. We will remember this visit for a long time.

This is a basic chain Italian restaurant. The selection of food is good and their service is good as well. Nothing exceptional it but worth the money.

Service was terrible -
Food was just Ok, Mozzarella was great but main dish (Spaghetti Carbonara) was lumpy, salty and unimpressive.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner tonight. Food, service and ambience was spot on. They even provided my Son a delicious desert for his birthday and yhe waitress and staff did not sing which I am sure he was pleased with as he does not like to be the centre of attention! Thanks again!!

I went there to celebrate my marriage anniversary, the staff didn't bother about serving unless reminded. The food was good, but was served cold . The dinner was overall not the best experience, as my previous visit at a different location.

Server seemed inexperienced and a little overwhelmed. Most importantly, one of our children's meals seemed to be forgotten entirely so she had to wait almost 15 mins while everyone else's food was served. Everyone gave her a bit of their own entrees so she could have something to eat. And, there was no explanation provided by the server, nor did any manager come by to ask about the issue. It was quite disappointing as service is usually pretty good. Also, I would say the portion sizes or non-pasta dishes seem to be getting smaller. Value is not as strong as it used to be.

We were celebrating a double Graduation - one from University of Guelph Humber and one from Humber College - which was noted in the notes of my original reservation.

When I asked if we could perhaps have a discount on 2 of the desserts ordered (and there were 6!), we were told it wasn’t possible. Instead we were brought 2 additional desserts - jar cakes.

While the gesture was very kind, it was kind of pointless as the whole table had already ordered dessert - so those 2 desserts literally went to waste .... which, as I said earlier, made them pointless.

I would have appreciated instead that a small amount was discounted off my bill or that we were only charged for 4 desserts instead of 6 - giving the 2 graduates their dessert for free.

The server could even have stated when ordering dessert that - if we had any special occasions (which should have been known from the reservation) - then she would be able to offer us 2 small complimentary desserts - BEFORE we all ordered.

That would have creative and using initiative ... and going the extra mile to give good service.

Those are the types of things that distinguish you from your competition 😉

My wife and I went there for our anniversary, everything was good except for the noise level which I thought was a bit loud.
Would go back but not for an anniversary or for a cozy dinner. Great value and service.

Mozzarellas are killer. Food was ok. Cold 2x but that meal was covered by the restaurant. Just not great overall. Sherway was an amazing restaurant. I’d go there first!

Went to Scaddabush for Mother’s Day. We had a fresh mozzarella as an appetizer and a Caesar salad, both of which were great! Ordered the spaghetti and meatball. The portion was substantial, but the pasta tasted like it was left under a heatlamp waiting for my wife’s meal to be finished. Too bad cause the flavour was good!

We had a great meal. The server was really good and the food was too. I was nervous at first because this same location has been inconsistent in the past. You can tell a lot of improvement has gone into what they are doing. Kudos! We will be back for SURE.
