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.
Winner of the TripAdvisor 2015 Certificate of Excellence.

Little mix up with the number of people for the reservation but we were able to seat early. Good food, attentive server.
Would go back for sure.

Unfortunately they would not accept Open Table cheques because they expired after 6 months. But there are no expiry dates on the cheques

I’m so sorry I ordered the pesto pollo and I got like three pieces of tasteless chicken and uncooked pasta. Little sauce no pesto to me. My other dinner date got upset stomach after eating.

I would not return for all in the party. Our waiter give us the bill and didn’t ask if we wanted anything else. Feel like we were rushed out but he was friendly.

Had the meatball sandwich and do not recommend…staff was helpful in resolving the matter. Great that they had indoor seating with an open side to the restaurant giving good ventilation

Lady with the brown bangs in a bun (and the headset) was so rude and had no idea what she was doing. She kept telling people to stand outside without even asking us if we had a reservation or not. She was clueless.

Thankfully, the hosts at the front listened to me and let me in for my reservation.

Our waitress was so nice and accommodating. Food was good.

Birthday lunch. overall great experience except we would have preferred being spaced out inside (there were other customers on either side of our tables). Would have preferred the plexiglass to be higher between tables as well

We choose Scaddabush as a venue for a business dinner which can usually take some time. We orderd drinks & food and after we finished dining, we stayed for sometime talking and we were among few other patrons in the restaurant with a lot of empty tables. But we were told that we've been here for too long and need to leave.

I found this very strange considering there were other tables available and it was late in the evening. But we respectfully obliged and left.

Great enjoyable dinner. This was our first time going out since the Coronavirus lockdown started and I was not disappointed. The service and food were fantastic. It was really nice to eat at a restaurant again.

Our server was wonderful and attentive but gave us space and kept his distance when he needed to. It was a great night!

We were there to celebrate a birthday. 2 of us had the chicken & shrimp, 1 the large meatball and spaghetti, 1 chicken parmesan and 1 had the spaghetti carbonara. Everything was delicious. 4 of us split a liter of wine, other had a mixed cocktail.

It was a birthday dinner with friends. The food was delicious as was the wine. The server was not respectful of our time and rushed us. We had to say 3 times in 10 minutes we were not ready to order. It was not relaxing because of this. I get you want to turn the table but it was a Monday evening and no line up. It would have been better if he asked if we were in a hurry and we could have answered.

The overall experience was positive, my only issue was the mozzarella procuitto which was a little disappointing. The mozzarella needed to be hotter and softer especially when paying a premium. Usually the mozzarella/ procuitto is excellent. Service was excellent, the staff got us to our table fast and efficiently.

Waited 55 minutes for food. Others who arrived later got served before our table. Food was served warm, but somewhat bland.

Not likely to return.

Overall, it was pretty good. The server was pleasant. It wasn't busy, so we didn't feel rushed. Two friends having lunch who hadn't seen each other in a long time and were catching up on our lives. I love the spaghetti and giant meatball, which I ordered, my friend ordered the fettuccine bolognese . The meal, while important, seemed secondary, but we both mentioned that the temperature of our meals could have been hotter and my pasta was a bit on the hard side. We didn't mention to the wait staff because we didn't want to take time away from our visit. Nice atmosphere.

Our server was friendly and attentive but not overly so...she let us enjoy our reunion lunch. Portions were very large - we all had different things and found this. Perhaps a half sandwich and salad option? We found the table to be quite noisy and noticed when we were leaving that the bar actually seemed to be a quieter option.

So first, our server Trish was amazing. Knowledgeable, energetic, attentive without being overbearing. Food was great. My son's chicken fingers were actually hand breaded, not frozen. Their pizza, so good. The dough was light and fluffy. The salad I had was a little on the garlic side but still tasty. My husbands Pasta Carbonara really tasty. Cooked to perfection. Service was quick. Not a long wait at all for appetizers or in between appetizers and main. We also ordered our apps when she took our drink order. But I doubt it would've made that much of a difference. Price was average. We will go back for sure!

Food wasn't good. I was hoping for good quality food as the price was high. I paid almost $30 for 8oz steak that looked like little square. I’ve had steak in many places and never had I have this small portion that costed me $30. Pasta was not cooked. Kale salad with grilled salmon costed me as much as steak. I would never go back to this restaurant. Very tight space. Not kids friendly at all.
