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.

    Dining before the hockey game. Food was good but a little pricey. Their home made cheese was very good. The restaurant is known for its pastas and pizzas but the salad with chicken was quite pricey in comparison.

    Got the beet and goat cheese salad but it was all greens. The amount of cheese and beets have decreased significantly over the last two years. Not worth over 20

    Everything was wonderful till the hostess came over and gave us a time limit. We did have an early reservation as I came in from out of town to meet with friends and catch up since covid. There was no indication on the reservation that there was a time limit. The hostess offer us another rable which did not make ant sense. This left us all a little unsure about the overall experience

    I love the food at Scaddabush, but it was WAY too loud. I think the DT location is trying to appeal to the DT work-crowd looking for a fun place to catch up after work.. which makes it an awful experience if you’re looking to have just a nice dinner with friends. I had to yell across the table for my friend to hear me. I will not be rushing to go back.

    Me and my friend are both vegetarians. We ordered a bruschetta, after confirming that it was vegetarian. However our bruschetta had sliced pork in it. The manager did apologize and offered us complementary food; only charging us for the drinks. Nevertheless, the dining experience was spoiled for us. The restaurant needs to be more careful to ensure that dietary preferences are respected.

    If you are looking for a place to eat out and love italian food, I would highly recommend Scaddabush. Their food is excellent, portion sizes are perfect, you don't feel stuffed when you leave. Their lasagna was to die for. Will definately go back

    I know we live in a time of great inflation, but $120 for two with no liquor, a dry ceasar salad, burnt lasagne, and "fresh" mozzarella that appears to have sat around for 20-30 minutes was just a bit too much. Service was outstanding; helpful and attentive.

    We were late for our reservation by 30 minutes as our driver dropped us at 200 Front St E instead of 200 Front St W. I contacted Scaddabush to advise them and they held our table. It was an exceptionally busy night with TIFF and the Elton John concert so we were very grateful - thank you!

    I came for dinner the night before as well and everything was fantastic, but this time time the food was just not very good. The garlic bread and pizza were way overdone. The service was excellent and the server took care of everything, but I was a bit disappointed by the difference in food quality just one day later.
