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.

My pizza was excellent, one of the best I've had. My wife's beet salad was good but low on beets and big on dressing. Service was slow BUT I realize that during COVID many restaurants are missing staff. The music was a bit loud, even outdoors, which made it a bit difficult to converse. The waiter / bartender was knowledgeable.

Caesar salads were terrible. Calamari was processed out of a bag. Pizza was good though.

I enjoy eating at Scaddabush at 200 Front St. Toronto It's one of my favourite non high end Italian eateries. I ate there before the Blue Jays game & was seated promptly, got our food order within 20 minutes & sent us on our way in less than an hour so we can catch the start of the baseball game. I would definitely go there again. The service was fine, had no issues. The only thing that stopped me from giving the experience 5 stars was the lack of Alfredo sauce on the Fettuccine which accompanied my chicken Parmesan. But overall a solid meal & good value.

The patio had a disgusting smell.I asked to be seated somewhere else and they refused to.They brought the food 45 min after I ordered and when the pasta came it was cold and hard.I could tell that it was just setting in the kitchen for a while.Overall terrible experience.

Food service extremely slow. Ordered an item and took 20 minutes for the server to return to tell us they were out. Waited another 40 minutes then had to walk around the restaurant to find our server to tell them to forget it. Server had poor attitude. Used to be our “go-to” place but now will not return.

Always a favourite of ours. You can count on great food, good selection of pizza and pasta, courteous and attentive service and large portions (even the regular size is quite filling). Enjoyed a delicious margherita pizza, a new to the menu mushroom pasta entree and superfood salad. Dessert was a scoop of vegan brownie dark chocolate gelato and an Americano coffee. A splendid time with the family. Fine food in a casual restaurant.

We were visiting Toronto and had such a good experience our first night that we returned on night two. Unfortunately the second evening our experience was not the same. Our waitress was fairly attentive at first but as the meal went on we saw her less. When my friend asked for a coffee it took forever to come. Then she didn’t bring cream so we had to wait longer. Then when she brought the cream she realized she also didn’t bring a spoon so she handed my friend cutlery from another table wrapped in a napkin and said you don’t mind stirring with a fork or knife do you? Thanks.
It was really odd and unprofessional. It turned out that the coffee was actually out and she made it through the espresso machine. It was very strong and not good. My friend said it was too strong and the waitress quipped that it was probably even better than regular coffee. Obviously not since She didn’t like it.
Then the waitress said ok I’ll take it off the bill. Which surprised me that she even intended on charging us for it considering all that happened leading up to it.

All in all the food was excellent but when the server is mediocre it ruins the experience.

Unfortunately an experience in complete contrast to the first time we were at the restaurant. For whatever reason the food, drinks and service were just off. Appreciated management taking the feedback. However won't be back and can't recommend.

The food and service were excellent. It looked like our server had about 10 tables which meant she couldn’t make it over to us as much as we had hoped, but the time that we did spend with her was amazing. Jasmine is an amazing server and I can’t wait to be in her section in the future!

Food was decent. Pastas were fresh, a little on the oily side by tasty. There was quite a bit of noise on the patio because of the fire station being so closeby but can't fault the firemen just doing their jobs!

A great night out on the patio! My seventh or eighth time at this location and my boyfriends first. We had a great server (Chris), he was attentive, fast and great at explaining the new COVID friendly ways the restaurant had changed their dining experience. Food as always was amazing, drinks cold and refreshing and overall a great time!

I was impressed with the service. The manager accompanied each guest(s) to the table, explaining the restaurant's covid policy and how they're ensuring that the guests and staff were safe. The server was prompt with our order, as was wearing a mask and maintaining social distancing at all times. The guest tables were at least 6 ft away from each other as well.

The food, however, was subpar - I ordered the spaghetti & meatballs. The spaghetti sauce was bland and very runny. It almost tasted like canned spaghetti sauce - and just added a touch of basil on it to make it look fancy. The meatball was dry - must've been overcooked. I have ordered the same menu at other scaddabush locations, but I do not remember it being this bad.

I would go back to this location but stick to drinks instead.

Food was excellent, tasty and good portion. They were utilizing social distancing so limited tables. We asked to have a drink before our meal but the meal arrived before we had a chance to finish our drinks. Because of this we felt rushed which detracted from our experience.

I booked a reservation for my sisters birthday. We had a party of 7, which turned to 6. When we arrived, the other part of my group had already arrived. I specifically mentioned it being a surprise... When we arrived the host said "Oh, we just sat the rest of your friends"... and proceeded to walk us there." This ruined the surprise... before we even got to the table.

With a booked reservation, I was pretty disappointed that we were put directly in front of the door, in an extremely busy section of the restaurant. We were surrounded by other large groups, who were close enough we could hear their conversations and had to move our chairs to let them go to the bathroom.. It seemed that they had "forgot" about the reservation, as my other party members said they could not find my name/reservation anywhere, even though I confirmed the day before. The weather that day was extremely windy and cold, and most of us had to wear sweaters for the meal as we were in the draft of the door....

The service was subpar... The waitress was nice, but seemed to be elsewhere most of the evening. We ordered food, and waited a regular amount of time for the food to arrive. Waitress on numerous occasions took our drinks for refills, and had to be reminded to bring our drinks back.. I overall felt like we were annoying the waitress and she had better things to do.

Food came out to table, quite slowly. We waited for 5 minutes for the last member of our table to get their food. The food itself was okay. Pasta was quite dissapointing, and very underwhelming. Member of our table had luke warm food as well. We were all too hungry to complain, or say anything.

I asked for my food to be packed up to take home, waitress proceeded to stack dirty plates inside of "unfinished" dish to be packed up, and immediately apoligized and walked away to pack up my food. I was completely shocked and grossed right out.

I do however, appreciate the desert that they brought out for my sisters birthday.
