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.

    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.

    Had high expectations based on other reviews but the lemon garlic pasta had zero flavour and I absolutely had to add salt and pepper to eat it. They also barely had anything on the menu available. WASNT a great experience. Very disappointing.

    I had a reservation for 2. There was a line up at the door, and was not sure if I should go to the hostess desk or not. I was worried about missing the 15 minute window because it was so slow. I was about 2nd from the desk and got a text that our table was ready. I decided to approach someone at the desk with that text, that my table was ready, and was then seated. I know everyone is short staffed, and it was a busy time of the day, but it would make sense to allow people with reservations to check in via a dedicated line. I’d apply that to any restaurant. Once seated, service was good, and the food delicious.

    Arrived with a reservation near the end of a rush for pre-baseball crowd. Sat for 15 minutes to get acknowledged by a server and had long waits for each course. Didn't have time for coffee or dessert at the end. Food was very good but this is the first time this restaurant has been so slow on service.

    Really enjoyed the food at Scaddabush. The Chicken Parm was very good, and the Caesar Salad was excellent. Service was great at the bar....very friendly staff. Nice looking place too! When I'm back in Toronto, I'll make it a point to visit Scaddabush again!
