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.

Everything covered in a bottle of olive oil. Who eats like that?

Food was not really hot. Pasta was cold to luke warm and sticky. One guest had spaghetti with meatball and the meatball was bland. Was a little disappointed that there was only 1 meatball. Also when the waiter asked the guest his thought of the meatball, the server didn't believe the guest......

Food was good but overpriced compared to similar restaurants. pizza toppings were skimpy should have way more ingredients. Salads were available in small or large sizes and were good . The seafood pasta was very good an likely best value. Soup was fair. Would not rush back as the meals did not stand out and the high price was not justified

First time at Scaddabush, got recommended by our daughter. Restaurant is very nicely decorated, atmosphere was fantastic on Sunday afternoon, food was delicious with interesting variety of choices, and service was outstanding, including very detailed intro about the restaurant. We are definitely coming back soon!

Well what can I say….. I booked with Scaddabuch, because the last time I was there I had a great time and the service was good. This time around...NOT! I indicated when I made the reservation that it was my mother's birthday (grandma). Then I received a follow-up call about my reservation, and again I indicated my mother's birthday. The girl that I spoke on the phone with informed me, that yes it was noted. We arrive and are seated. Give our menus and we place our order. So far so good. Our food arrives, and we don't see our server again! We don't get ask if we need anything, refill of our drinks....nothing. Now we sit for I have no idea how long it was until our server finally came back to us and removed half of our stuff. Another 10 min the other half of the table was finally clean (restaurant was not even busy!). The server drops off the desert menus, and I order my child's ice cream. 20 mins later we have to ask another server to find our server (yet my child's desert still hasn't arrived). Finally my child received the ice cream that took 20 min+. At this point, all I want is to get the bill and go home. So I'm still waiting to see if anything will be sent out for my mother's birthday. No indication is made, which makes me even more upset. The server can tell that I'm not happy at all and offers me a Complimentary Zeppole and Complimentary Fresh Mozzarella (that can only be used between 5-11pm). Like really....that makes up for me waiting and wasting my time! Not only was this experience awful, but my mother NEVER wants to come back to this restaurant. It was her birthday and nothing was offered to her. Extremely disappointed in the service and the lack of quality.

Scaddabush provided our group with a delicious meal, great service and a good ambiance.

They do not offer free refills for soft drinks, so that was disappointing.

We were celebrating a birthday, so they stuck a sparkler in our dessert, which was a nice touch.

The food was good and the service was very good. However, my girlfriend and I found the ambience very noisy. We had to talk very loud to hear each other. At our age, we prefer a more quiet atmosphere without music blaring in the background and being able to hear many voices. Even though I found the food good, I would not be back.

This was our first time here, we were seated right away. The waitress was friendly and showed us a couple of dishes that she recommended. However, when it came time to take the order, I repeated my order 3 times and she kept saying the system was down and she had to write the order down. The food arrived and it was just warm, the waitress got my order wrong and it was sent back, while my party was eating, I was waiting for my food to be prepared. The sad part was that I was not even offered a salad so that at least I could be eating at the same as my party, finally my food arrived and my party had finished theirs, not a great experience to be only one eating while everyone had finished. At the end of the meal, I asked for the bill and the waitress was surprised that we wanting to leave without dessert. At this time she had the opportunity to turn around our experience here, by either offering a slice of cake or to offer a discount on the bill, which neither happened.

Although the main server was trying hard, a different person brought over the wine, but I ordered Shiraz and he brought a white - then said the server probably incorrectly punched it in, rather than just saying sorry. He did not come back with the right one. When the main server finally returned and I asked about the wine she told me my chosen wine was sold out. I asked for bubbly water instead and she said that they don’t have that either. When ordering our food she said the signature meatballs were sold out - but then said maybe they will be ready soon (?! So not sold out?!) and had to go check. When she returned she said the meatballs were ready we could order them. She couldn’t recommend any of the dishes we asked about because she’s a vegetarian- but only told us after we asked something specific about the meat. Not a big deal but say you’ve never had it up front! We had ordered a fresh mozzarella as an appetizer and much to our dismay, it arrived with our entrees. When we asked the server why (yet again someone else) he said that’s just how it is. And he said he could take back the entrees but they will get cold. Two of us has the same signature meatball spaghetti entrees- but when served they looked completely different (one had chopped tomatoes and visably more sauce). Both dishes also contained other “random” pieces of pasta inside. Taste was ok - but did not appear to be made from scratch pasta.

Overall we were disappointed with our dining experience - especially for the cost per dish. I would not go out of my way to return here.

I came for a late lunch/early dinner for my birthday! The server was awesome, kept up with us and all of our requests! One of the greatest experiences there to date. And each experience has always gone above and beyond. I love the sherway location. All employees really stand out, have great personalities and make a great team! Shout out to the manager for collecting a great time and thriving in your first few months of business. May these be the perfect stepping stones to outstanding service for years to come!! See you soon xo

The service was ok but not over the top.
Pasta was just ok. Tasted old.
Calamari not recommended at all.

This was the second time we have been. First time we ate at the bar. I had a different meal than this time and enjoyed it much better.

I won’t necessarily rush back to scaddabush

Decor is fun in the same way as jack astors, fazooli etc (same owners, same mediocre food). Portions are grotesquely large. I ordered one of the specials (skillet pasta) and it lacked any kind of recognizable flavors although there was a generous amount of chicken. Caesar salad was good. Our waitress was sooooo friendly which is appreciated but the number of her interruptions to see “How are WE doing” exceeded anything reasonable. I loathe the presumptuous and condescending phrase “How are WE doing”.. you don’t know WE and you aren’t dining with us! I like the concept of the very long communal table, presumably for individual diners to join and socialize. Also $30 for one lunch seems high without wine, beer or coffee.

The food was very low quality. We ordered four meals and each one had pasta which had clearly sat under a heat lamp and was dried out. It seemed like pasta you can make yourself at home, the spaghetti was all stuck together, carbonara was really salty and the meatball was dry and bland. The mozzarella was cold and not flavourful. It was an all around disappointing meal, I suggest going to the location at Square One, it's much much better.

Food isn’t that great at this location. My pizza was chew (dough was under cooked) Caesar salad was soggy and heavier on dressing making it very garlicky. Otherwise all good. Drinks were good and service was good for a midrange chain restaurant.

Disappointed with the food. We were a party of four and each of our dishes lacked flavour. Meals were boring. Don’t think we will return due to the average food. Many other restaurants in the area with more interesting and flavourful food at the same price point

We had reservations but were still kept waiting with little explanation. Throughout our meal there were tables empty so it wasn't because of the number of diners.
It was extremely noisy making conversation difficult.
The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Our meals came quickly and were hot. My dish did not meet my expectations for flavour (penne bolognese) but others at the table enjoyed their meals quite well. At the end of our meal I felt rushed to pay the bill even though, as I mentioned there were empty tables around us.

The service was terrible. We were seated almost 10 min before our server came by. We had eaten our appetizers before our drinks ever arrived. The bottles of water we ordered never came, neither did requests for olive oil. We were done our meal before the second round of drinks came...they were ordered before our entrees were delivered to the table. One entree was late being delivered, as in everyone else had almost finished eating before the last plate arrived. No apology, just I don't deliver the food/drinks. Food was ok, nothing spectacular. The only thing really enjoyable was the cheesecake. Def wouldn't return.
