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.

This is a basic chain Italian restaurant. The selection of food is good and their service is good as well. Nothing exceptional it but worth the money.

Service was terrible -
Food was just Ok, Mozzarella was great but main dish (Spaghetti Carbonara) was lumpy, salty and unimpressive.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner tonight. Food, service and ambience was spot on. They even provided my Son a delicious desert for his birthday and yhe waitress and staff did not sing which I am sure he was pleased with as he does not like to be the centre of attention! Thanks again!!

I went there to celebrate my marriage anniversary, the staff didn't bother about serving unless reminded. The food was good, but was served cold . The dinner was overall not the best experience, as my previous visit at a different location.

Server seemed inexperienced and a little overwhelmed. Most importantly, one of our children's meals seemed to be forgotten entirely so she had to wait almost 15 mins while everyone else's food was served. Everyone gave her a bit of their own entrees so she could have something to eat. And, there was no explanation provided by the server, nor did any manager come by to ask about the issue. It was quite disappointing as service is usually pretty good. Also, I would say the portion sizes or non-pasta dishes seem to be getting smaller. Value is not as strong as it used to be.

We were celebrating a double Graduation - one from University of Guelph Humber and one from Humber College - which was noted in the notes of my original reservation.

When I asked if we could perhaps have a discount on 2 of the desserts ordered (and there were 6!), we were told it wasn’t possible. Instead we were brought 2 additional desserts - jar cakes.

While the gesture was very kind, it was kind of pointless as the whole table had already ordered dessert - so those 2 desserts literally went to waste .... which, as I said earlier, made them pointless.

I would have appreciated instead that a small amount was discounted off my bill or that we were only charged for 4 desserts instead of 6 - giving the 2 graduates their dessert for free.

The server could even have stated when ordering dessert that - if we had any special occasions (which should have been known from the reservation) - then she would be able to offer us 2 small complimentary desserts - BEFORE we all ordered.

That would have creative and using initiative ... and going the extra mile to give good service.

Those are the types of things that distinguish you from your competition 😉

My wife and I went there for our anniversary, everything was good except for the noise level which I thought was a bit loud.
Would go back but not for an anniversary or for a cozy dinner. Great value and service.

Mozzarellas are killer. Food was ok. Cold 2x but that meal was covered by the restaurant. Just not great overall. Sherway was an amazing restaurant. I’d go there first!

Not my first time dining here, the entire chain is a consistently good experience where the food is wonderful.

Highly recommended to anyone who likes a nice chill place to eat.

Went to Scaddabush for Mother’s Day. We had a fresh mozzarella as an appetizer and a Caesar salad, both of which were great! Ordered the spaghetti and meatball. The portion was substantial, but the pasta tasted like it was left under a heatlamp waiting for my wife’s meal to be finished. Too bad cause the flavour was good!

We had a great meal. The server was really good and the food was too. I was nervous at first because this same location has been inconsistent in the past. You can tell a lot of improvement has gone into what they are doing. Kudos! We will be back for SURE.

This place is my current obsession right now. Their spaghetti and meatball is the best!! The fresh mozzarella ball is to die for. I can go on and on about it but literally every dish at this location is the best!

The food has deteriorated a lot since my last visit in December. The meatball pasta was too salty. Shrimp spaghetti and tiramisu were not fresh.

My friend and I had a wonderful and delicious time.

Our server who came back from vacation, Vegas - was Amazing. She made Lunch so special, and so much fun. We appreciated her kindness and wonderful personality. Thank you, you are appreciated and keep on succeeding! 😊

The food was excellent as well. The Tiramisu was very creamy and flavourful, how it should be!

This restaurant was overall Awesome! Thanks again.

Great food, attentive service and good ambience. A little dark in the corner table but nothing really to complain about.
The gnocchi, chicken & shrimp, buco bites... all of them were enjoyed and finished in no time by everyone on the table.
Definitely worth a return visit.

Service was excellent. Noise level was good as it was earlier in the evening. Fresh cheese had been recommended to us and it was definitely worth ordering. Next time we visit we will probably just order the cheese and another appetizer, and a bottle of wine. Pasta was okay, but too starchy (sticky) and clumpy. Sauces were okay but just missing "something". We will return here but will stay clear of the pasta and try something else on the menu.

On our previous visit we found the pasta [Penne] to be excellent. this time, not so much.
My Gnocchi was very flavourful but also very chewy. My Granddaughter again had the penne and pronounced the chicken to be dry and difficult to eat. My wife's Caesar was very good.
Quality seems inconsistent. We have had consistent good success at the Oakville location so will probably drive the extra distance next time.

Waitress was very enthusiastic. Drinks took a while to arrive. My choice of beer was unavailable. Caesar salad was good could have used more dressing perhaps as a side plate. Main course shared with my partner was excellent,Hazel Nut raviola. Very noisy due to a large party in an adjacent table Could have been directed to a table further away.

My only complaint is that the booths have been designed so tightly that an adult male has his belly against the table. Which is very uncomfortable. Otherwise a very good restaurant experience.
