This was my first time back after a bad experience several years ago at the Mississauaga location. I am glad I did. The staff was very welcoming and friendly.

The food was great, I especially enjoyed the bruschetta. They changed their pizza menu and it was very good! Would have liked to have seen the option to build your own or add or subtract items.

Overall was very pleased.

The Scaddabush location in Scarborough was excellent. The food was definitely not something you would find at every Italian restaurant and was delicious and plentiful. The service was also outstanding and the ambience was very nice. It was like a hipper version of East Side Mario's. I would definitely recommended to anyone looking for a good Italian meal that isn't just run of the mill.

My whole family had a great time. It was my daughters birthday and we decided to try Scaddabush. My daughter had heard it was great from her friends and we were not disappointed.

Nothing is perfect/5-star in this imperfect world however the service was a standout. The food was very good as usual. The pasta is their specialty so stick with it.

Service is always a hit or miss. Maybe we went at a time that it wasn't so busy, but staff were hanging around gossiping for most of the time and it was not professional. They were too busy conversating that we couldn't get their attention to let them know that we hadn't even received our apps, but our meal had already come.

Once we did get their attention, they compensated the app for us... But still not an amazing visit this time around. That being said, I have definitely had amazing service other times I have gone.

Inattentive service. Long waits for water refill and had to ask multiple people to find our server to get the bill.

Almost empty but a staff that was just being there. No value added and little care. Food was middling and not freshly made.

The food was great. The atmosphere was really nice but I think the food is a bit pricey. It would be nice if there was a lunch special with a bit more moderate prices.

This was my first visit and when I arrived I thought the place looked great! The hostess was a bit frazzled, but still polite. Seemed like a good place. And that's about where the good ended. Service was extremely slow. The food sub par. It was not busy so no real reason. Our server was so absent our party of 5 could have easily walked out on the bill multiple times. We won't be back.

We came here for dinner and to watch the Raptors game. Aside from how i credible the night was, the food and service was great considering how busy it was for the game. Definitely will be back.

We have been several times and always liked the food . This time three of us didn’t care for our choices, all pasta dishes. Two were too dry( ordered more sauce). I didn’t care for the taste of mine. Asked for a booth and got a ne but it was difficult to get into .

We had a lovely dinner. The service was excellent. We were served by a waitress who really knew all the dishes on the menu and spoke with lots of knowledge. Our food was delicious and the serving sizes were perfect! The price was very reasonable too!

Terrible didn’t even have certain items on their menu. Wasn’t informed until we started to order. Service was slow... in addition the waitress didn’t even inform us of the mother’s day specials. Very disappointed use to come here a lot. Not anymore service is going down as well as the food quality.

This is my 4th and last time going to Scaddabush. Unfortunately, our experience was horrible on Mothers Day.
Everything was wrong. Too much to explain.

We made the reservation for 5:45 and did not get seated until 6:30.... the food was fantastic and so was our server. It was really loud, had a hard time hearing person sitting next to me.
Not too thrilled about the wait. The manager gave up a complimentary naked mozzarella which was yummy.
I would return.

Staff are pleasant and informative, not attentive as slower times may have allowed for. It was a busy evening and our table wasn’t ready for our reservation - 20 minute wait - and the food was good, not great. My husbands pasta was really over cooked, which is disappointing in a place boasting of freshly made pasta.
I’ve been 3 times since they’ve opened and I’m not sure I’ll return. Toronto and Scarborough have a ton of restaurants to choose from and this isn’t a wow for me.

Food was very good, fresh and imaginative for a chain restaurant. The service was efficient and very friendly. However, the noise level was so high that by the end of the evening we were hoarse from having to shout our conversation and saying “Pardon, I didn’t hear what you said.” And the filth in the Women’s washroom was disgusting. Floors were covered in black dirt and water and the garbage was overflowing and onto the floor. Imagine the public washrooms in the subway transit system on a snowy day. While the staff was responsive when they were informed of the situation, the experience was enough to turn me off my entire meal.

The decor is very nice! The atmosphere is lively, but cozy and warm with nice ambience lighting. Sports fans can dine in the bar high seating that is open to the whole restaurant with screens positioned in close proximity to your table.

The food is exceptional - delicious pastas and dishes that are oh so flavourful!

Don’t forget to order the Charity Bread - also amazing and a portion of the proceeds go to a local charity.

Truly a great spot for social events with great service too.

Brilliant!

Great place to meet with friends or family. Service was great from the first step into the restaurant. Food was really good, with pleasurable portion sizes. Loved the Carbarnarra!

The hostess was very accommodating when we arrived, and the manager was really good at his job. Thank you for trying to fit us in for Mothers day!

Cheers

I love Scaddabush and our dinner was amazing. Just one thing to add: open table said our reservation was in the bar and we were seated in the dinning room... I asked about it and no one told us why this happened. I still had a great dinner but wanted bar seating.

Thank you

The food is delicious and the service is good (except the assistant servers who brought out the food kept making us pass the dishes, instead of walking to the other side of the table to serve the dishes). This may be because we were sitting at a hightop table. The noise level is quite loud. This is expected in a busy restaurant, but the music (there was a DJ on a Friday) was much louder than usual.

I found there wasn't a wide selection on the menu. One of our dishes had a hair in it. We assumed we wouldt be charged for the dinner. We ate separately cause one person had to wait for a new dinner. Then at end end the server brought the bill and they charged us for the plate with the hair in it and said there was still a food cost!!!! After speaking with the manager it was corrected but we shouldnt have to lf even asked for the manager.

I made reservations for a large group and I was an exception for my 30th birthday. I really appreciated that they accommodated my request due to it being on a Friday. I was happy that they seated me at the front in the dining area and I enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. I really enjoy their fresh mozzarella.
