Scaddabush Italian Kitchen & Bar - Oakville Ratings and Reviews
Scaddabush is my probably my favourite restaurant. They make their pasta and mozzarella in house and they have a great selection of cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks. I've never left Scaddabush feeling disappointed. I'm a vegetarian and there's a lot to choose from on the menu. It was a great place to bring a child too. The manager came around a few times to check in on us to make sure we were having a good time too. Kudos to whoever designed the Valentine's Day special - it was delicious!
This was our first time. We were asked by our server if this was our first time; however nothing really came of it. You would think a thorough breakdown of the menu or items they’re known for would be presented or mentioned, without asking. I also believe if a manager is on the floor and walks by tables 5 plus times, they should engage the tables in terms of finding out how their overall experience was. We also sat with empty plates that we pushed to the end of the table, and on many occasions, again, the same manager just walked by with tunnel vision. Our server was okay.... however I believe service reflects the management. We would return b/c the food was great, but not to this location. We will definitely try another location and hope the management and service is more engaged.
One of our guests asked to have their left over meal put in a container to take home but it was never brought to the table. Another guest ordered a tea after the meal but it was not brought to the table until the guest went back and asked for it again and then the guest brought it to our table.
FOOD WAS MEDIOCRE, THE MOZZARELLA CHEESE PLATTER WITH PROSCIUTTO WAS VERY GOOD, OTHER THAN THAT THE SALAD WAS NOT FRESH, PASTA WAS WAY OVER COOKED AND CHICKEN IN THE CHICKEN PARMESAN WAS DEEP FRIED SO LONG IT WAS TASTING BURNT AND COULD BARELY CUT INTO IT, CALAMARI APP WAS DRIPPING WITH GREASE
SERVICE WAS MEDIOCRE, SERVER SELDOM CAME TO TABLE, WAITED NEARLY 10 MINS TO ASK FOR BILL.
Everything was great except the girl had an awful time redeeming our gift card. Kind of makes me not excited to buy the gift cards with the promo you guys run because seems like every time i have one they don't know how to ring it through.
But food was great. I suggest teaching everyone how to ring gift cards through again haha
The waitress was amazing and we enjoyed the time spent at the restaurant. I had the Baked Penne Carbonara and my girlfriend had the Margherita pizza. The Penne Carbonara was just okay, it wasn't fabulous. I think, for the price paid, perhaps some sort of bread or small salad could have been incorporated into the offering.
The food was excellent. Two people shared a Tuscan salad and the Mario pizza. They brought the salad in 2 bowls, which we appreciated. The thin crust pizza was delicious. We then had 2 coffees and shared the cheesecake. The waiter was personable and very helpful. We will definitely return.
The menu has not changed that much since being Alice Fazoolis but this is okay as we had many favorites on the old menu. It is easy to mix and match by ordering a green salad and adding your choice of protein and this also keeps the cost in check. I had the Pesto Pollo Fetticini and really enjoyed it. A friend had the Bolognese and found it bland and a bit chewy.
Our server, Farah, was excellent and very attentive.
Given the price point of the menu, the food was average or below. Nothing truly awful, and the dessert was truly excellent (panatone bread pudding). However the pasta was underdone, which is a real achievement if they are using freshly made product. The sauces were ordinary; again, nothing bad but really quite plain with little inspiration.
Service staff were attentive yet not hovering around our table. Prompt and courteous, and they knew the food when asked about specific items. It was our server who said she enjoyed the dessert, which prompted the decision to try it in spite of the ho-hum main course.
Overall a fair experience and frankly a disappointment; will not be returning. We agreed that East Side Mario's provided better value for very similar fare.
My wife and i came for the Pasta/Spaghetti special last week,very dissapointed that only 2 of the 11 items on the pasta menu were part of the special.(Spaghetti Day).My Spaghetti and meatballs was ok but the portion sizes were all screwed up,i had to order a group size meal in order to get a large portion.The ambiance was fine and the service was good,but the 2/11 pasta items was a joke.Spaghetti and meatballs or a seafood spaghetti dish or nothing else,a little misleading since the meal was almost $60 with no alcohol.Overall very dissapointed.
I had the shrimp pasta. I was disappointed in the shrimp and the overall flavour. I would prefer to have just 5 or 6 jumbo shrimp rather than 7 or 8 small shrimp. Small shrimp have nothing special about them and always seem soggy. The sauce was also disappointing. It was supposed to be a cream lemon sauce. It had no lemon taste what so ever. I guess the picante over powers the lemon flavour.
Value has dipped. Portions are noticeably smaller, prices are up. I know this is the same across the board, but I'd rather spend that money somewhere a little better. One of their best attractions was the hand pulled burrata, but they no longer make it with cream. So basically what you're getting now is a small hunk of mozzarella, not burrata. Too bad, this was a promising chain. Service remains quick and helpful.
While our meal was fantastic when it came time to pay we were disappointed. We were wanting to pay our bill with a Visa gift card. At which point we were told that it won't work and we needed to pay another way. When I asked for an explanation as to why I was given a very vague and unsatisfactory answer. Basically this is how it is so accept it. It is not posted anywhere you don't accept this card! We LOVE Scaddabush and it is our go to place for special occasions. This left us with a rather sour taste in our mouths when we left.
We have come quite a few times to Scaddabush. Although the pizza is good, the service is definitely not, starting right with the hostess. The last 3 times we came, we waited a long time for our appetizers and then got our main course a few minutes after our appetizer came. It's not unusual to have to ask several times for things (i.e. silverware, more water, cheese). Although I like the pizza, the service makes it a very frustrating outing.
I tool my mother and my wife here for mu mothers birthday. She has worked in the restaurant business for 35 years so finding a place that meets her standards is difficult. She absolutely loved the food and environment so much she will definitely go back and will encourage my dad to try it too!
This is how I imagine all places should operate!
The host at the door was extremely friendly and welcoming. The waitress was knowledgeable, attentive and not overly intrusive. Service was quick and the food was AMAZING!!!! 4 people attended and we all LOVED our meals and tasting each others. The venue is beautiful. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!
