Scaddabush Italian Kitchen & Bar - Scarborough
Disappointing. Food not that great, and my pasta dinner arrived lukewarm to the table.
We had an awesome server, Sam. She was very kind and made sure that everything was just right for us
They acknowledged the special occasion we were celebrating and brought us cake. :)
It was quite busy the night we went, but we did get there before the dinner rush (about 530). We were seated quickly, but the service was slow after that. For whatever reason, they had the bar tenders acting as the waiters (so doing 2 jobs) when the bar was full and the tables around the bar were full - it didn't make for the best experience. It took 45 minutes for our food to come out which was pretty long. The bill took a while to get to us also.
Reservations are key.
Only negative of my experience is requesting a private booth when I placed my reservation but upon arrival couldn't accommodate.
Had a good dinner and evening. We asked for our salad to come before the meal but the meal arrived first. Really enjoyed the flavour and taste. I asked for some spice in my tomatoes sauce and it was done just right.
We have often driven by and discussed going to Scaddabush to try it out. We had often gone to Jack Astor's with our family in the past, before Scaddabush was opened. When we received a brochure in the mail with 1/2 price bottles of wine on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays along with discount cards, we reserved that same day for dinner for 3 using Open Table.
We were greeted promptly, seated in a nice booth and our server was very attentive. The atmosphere was warm and cozy.. We had a lovely bottle of Pinot Grigio, from Veneto, Italy. One person has peanut and nut allergies. We ordered calamari as an appetizer to share, the calamari was served with hot peppers and two dipping sauces. We also ordered pasta main courses. The penne fettucini with chicken, spinach and a creme pesto sauce was excellent. Spagetti with tomato sauce and argula was also very good. We understand that many ingredients are made on-site in the restaurant including breads, pasta and mozzarella cheese.
We loved the concept of Charity bread, we ordered a loaf with three cheeses and it was delicious. We understand that the cost of the bread is donated to a food bank.
Good! Food was delicious.
Food was awesome and quick to come to table. Can't wait for my next visit! Wish there was a location in Ajax.
The atmosphere was very pleasant and our server was attentive . The food was excellent and a good sized portion. Unfortunately, the desert we hoped for wasn't available but our second choice was equally delicious.
I just went here for my one year anniversary and it was great! Had a lot of food and it all tasted good. Also the DJ that was playing that night ( feb 2nd 2019) was playing all the music I love. Made my night!
Excellent food good vibe and great staff. We win be bavk
Wonderful meal and great staff made for an enjoyable evening. Snowstorm outside didn't deter us from keeping our reservation. It was worth battling the elements!
Special occasion not acknowledged, dinners brought out and we were not done our appetizers yet and server waited watching us as we reviewed and processed the bill which was not cool at all.
I made a reservation and mentioned it was for a birthday, when we arrived we got sat at the bar. We ordered 3 dishes for 2 people and when they got to our table it was just warm ( I was expecting hot), the server only checked on us once for the 2 hrs we've spend there. The overall experience was just ok, probably wont go there again for celebrations.
Our waitress was so wonderful, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was great.
We made open table reservation and still we got seated very late. The food quantity was very poor and the the food was cold lots of noise and terrible experience compare to other times we’ve come there
We have been here a few times and we really love it! I took off 'stars' because although they market themselves around their pasta...I always find it 'gummy' and not very good. That said, they have other items on the menu that are OUTSTANDING! We love their pizzas, tomato/fennel soup, their fish, and the Bomba cheese. The service is also terrific. OVerall, we really enjoy dining here.
The pastas are always great here, and today was no exception. Service was better than usual!
Our server was attentive and friendly. Our food was disappointing. The Ceasar salad tasted bland i.e. light on dressing overall. The Pasta and Pizzas we ordered was so overloaded with fresh chopped red chillis that even the spice lovers in our group found it a bit too much. I am surprised that our servers did not give us the heads up when we ordered our foods
We booked NY Eve and had an awesome time last year. This year was a nightmare from the start. We arrived early for our reservation and were seated right away. The restaurant had many empty tables available and they sat us at a high top right next to the door. I expressed concerns with temperature but the host said we will be fine. We weren't. The Prix Fix menu had only one dessert option this year and when I asked the server if I could switch it for even just a bowl of ice cream i was told no. I ordered it anyway and had my girlfriend take my dessert home. They told us it was a 1.5 hour seating limit which i had no problem with but we felt so rushed throughout the dining experience. Our fresh mozzarella and salads were still being eaten when they delivered our meals. At this time we had only been sitting down for 25 minutes. They just left on the table. It was cold when we started eating our meals and my Spaghetti Alfredo side was so bland it was like milk and noodles. At this time the door started filling up with people waiting and they were all around our table since we were right beside the host stand. Needless to say we had enough. Asked for the bill and left. Very disappointed as we frequent this restaurant often as its right around the corner from our home. If we go back I hope things improve as these points could have been avoided.
Even though we went on New Years Eve and were advised when seated we had a 1 1/2 hr. limit, there was no problem with that. The service was EXTREMELY quick and the food was delicious as always. I will be back again soon.
Service was very slow. My friend got her food after the rest of us had finished ( more then 1 hour later). My friend ordered a cappuccino which she never received. Had to constantly look to another waiter to get our waitress to come to serve us.
Was my first visit and will not return.
Food was delicious and service was great. My kids love going there.
Was recommended by friends to go. Food was amazing the fresh mozzarella is to die for. Will definitely be going again.
This restaurant is worth every cent for the fresh
Authentic delectable meal. It reminds me of a real Italian home cooked meal.
I wish they would be able to open one in the Durham region. We have nothing out here that would even come close to healthy and very accommodating as Scaddabush.
Thanks again for an awesome meal.
Hard to converse when the music was too loud at a 5pm sitting. Left with a headache and a sore throat from having to yell to the person sitting beside me. Way too loud for a restaurant atmosphere. It isnt a night club. Pizza was very good. The bread that came with the spinach dip was heavy and greasy.
Excellent food and service. It always tastes freshly made.
Usually the food is very good but this time everything except the garlic bread had no flavour. The waiter was great and brought garlic butter and hot pepper flakes at our request but they did not really fix the meals. He let the manager know and he came over and also tried to fix things. I will go back as I have had 4 good meals - some of which were repeated Friday night but not made the same. I assume it was a new cook. Service was great, as usual.
Food is very tasty, and the decor is beautiful. Service is slow though, so don't visit if you're in any hurry.
Food lots of choice for vegetarians ; Service was great. A great place to entertain your friends & family
We had trouble with hard bread in two dishes and my friend had trouble with her gift card being accepted in the debit machine.
Food was alittle better then okay, service was weak and the ambiance in terrible. The music is so loud you can barely talk to each other and it’s hard to hear the waitress. I would try a different location to see if it’s better because it has a lot of potential.
Great ambiance and the food was delicious!
We ordered the Zuca Ravioli and Gnocci and it was excellent. The service was excellent - quick and attentive.
It was a Saturday night and the music was very loud but the DJ played some great tunes.
Food was excellent but a little pricey. The service was excellent. I went for a casual business lunch, it was a great atmosphere.
Excellent service and food.
The food was delicious but the food took almost an hour to come. Service was very slow.
Server was very new but sweet . Got our order wrong. We ordered ceasar salad and came back with a garden salad. She didn’t even know what Al Denté meant. Chicken parmigiana was so salty.. Fettuccine Alfredo had no flavour except for the grated cheese on top.. and it was very starchy . Water was warm. No ice. Sauce tasted like it was canned and finally, Was forced to take a reservation of 4:45 pm because apparently they were all booked up. I noticed that when we finished up out dinner and was leaving, I saw that the restaurant was half empty.. So..I’m not to impressed with this restaurant.. Save your money folks and go somewhere else.
