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.

We loved the decor/ambience, with the exception of the noise level, but we have come to expect that with the trend in open spaces/exposed ceilings.

We were a little disappointed with the mozzarella starter. It was ok but not as special as the menu would have you believe. Also the focaccia toasts were over-toasted.

The pizza, however, was outstanding. We had the prosciutto/arugula, and it was possibly the best pizza I have ever had. The crust was perfection.

We will definitely be back for more pizza!

Scaddabush was good for dinner out with friends. It was quite loud but that lent itself to the atmosphere. Our service was slow but I think that was a combination of the fact that our server had a trainee shadowing her and them reading us as not being in a hurry.
Overall the food was tasty as was the sangria and we had a good time.

Food was great, always is. Server bailed halfway through our dinner, mains took an hour and a half to come out, was only asked if we wanted more drinks at the very end of the meal. We would have spent a lot more on food and drink if the service was better.

Our experience there was really nice.
We were seated right away, although they put us at a table with no light so they moved us to another seat but was too noisy. So we asked to be moved again and they out us upstairs and it was fantastic up there.
The wine my wife and I had tasted really great although there was small bits of cork in both glasses and being a chef myself I would have expected the wine or something else to be discounted.
But over all the staff and the food made up for the small hiccups we faced while we dined there.
I would definitely recommend this location and hope one day there will be a location opened up in Regina.
Thank you very much to the entire restaurant for a great time!!!

We had just a super time. We were there relatively early for a Saturday (5:15) but the place was still lively. Service was excellent—fast and pleasant. Food was lovely. Will most certainly repeat and recommend to others. Just a small thought—a couple more beers on the draft menu (craft brewers?) would not hurt.

Our visit exceeded our expectations! Hostess was very welcoming and our waiter was excellent. We were checked up on when needed and the food was AMAZING! We went to celebrate our 3 year anniversary and the complimentary glasses of champagne with a sparkler was a nice surprise. We will be back again and will be bringing new friends!

I went there on Tuesday night to celebrate my friend’s birthday and Scaddabush did not disappoint! It was our first time going, and the food was absolutely outstanding! Our server, Rebecca, was so friendly and helpful with her food recommendations. She even brought out a special dessert for my friend!

Great service. Really fast and clearly they tend to a lunch crowd. I would say that the prices for lunch do seem a bit excessive. The food is good - the fries were some of the best I've ever tried. The Cesar salad was fresh - I thought the dressing seemed a bit bland however. Overall, I would reccomend this place.

Best calamari, ever. The breading was crispy and clung to the squid, the sauces were tasty, and the red peppers were a nice addition. There was just enough lemon in the aioli, and just a touch of heat in the red sauce. I wish we had gotten half a lemon to squeeze over the squid, instead of just one slice, but it worked out. The penne bolognese was good, although I wasn't very fond of the ultra whipped cheese on top. The bread crumbs, meaty crumbs, and basil made up for the whipped, virtually tasteless, cheese deficiency. The carbonara was excellent. My husband did his best to lick the pan without actually licking it. He works miracles with a fork and knife. The size of the meatball for the spaghetti surprised my daughter, but she's still learning, and she had no complaints about the taste of the food. She declared the taste of the brand of bottled sparkling water better than San Pellegrino. The hostess was friendly, and we really appreciated the into at the table regarding the highlights of the layout of the restaurant (location of the bathrooms). I wish every host/hostess would provide that information when seating guests. The waiter was friendly and efficient, and the pace of the meal was spot on. I enjoyed a brief friendly chat with him at the end of meal before we left to walk back to our hotel.

Our group of 6 went here for dinner before seeing a show at Ed Mirvish Theatre and we had an excellent time. We were seated pretty much right away. The menu has a great selection of fresh pastas, pizza, and entrees and was perfect for a large group with the appetizer and shareable options. We got the Naked fresh mozzarella and it was such a treat and something new to try with everyone. The staff were all attentive and you could feel how proud they are to offer fresh food on the menu.

Our server started off great, but then we were forgotten about. No one came to check on our meals and we sat with our unfinished food for a long time. It was also our 5 year olds sons birthday and nothing was done. We had told the hostess and the server. We had to stop a food runner to ask for the kids desserts and second person to get our bill. Despite all of this, the five of us enjoyed our food.
