Overall great experience, I brought friends who were visiting from Germany and they loved it! The service was excellent and very understanding with the language barrier, they did everything they could to make my friends feel comfortable.
I enjoy Scaddabush every time I go, great atmosphere and great food.
Its perfect for both groups and intimate dates with a significant other

Twice a year my husband and I come to Scaddabush for dinner after a Blue Jays game. We are from Ottawa and this is my favorite Italian restaurant to come to but last weekend July 23 we had reservations. Our server was the worst I've ever encounter in my life. It made my evening not pleasant at all. We basically ate and left as we usually have more drinks and stay longer but this time we did not.

This was our favorite restaurant while visiting Toronto. We even thought about going back for a second night. I would highly recommend the spaghetti and meatballs and anything with the fresh mozzarella. The DJ was playing great music. I only wish that we had room for dessert.

The place was extremely noisy, the waiter was very inexperienced and kept pushing the alcohol sales but actually knew nothing about the wine and gave wrong information on the Pinot Grigio in order to sell me a more expensive glass of wine. My friend ordered the smallest glass of red wine after he tried to convince her to go with the next bigger size. Then he brought the bigger size anyway. We pointed it out after we noticed it and he charged her for it anyway.
The food was mediocre at best. It was a summerlicious meal so they didn't seem to take much care with it. The bruschetta was tasteless. The red snapper was okay but the potatoes were dry as a bone and they could only spare to put 6 green beans on the plate! The Tiramisu dessert was full of Espresso flavour but nothing else so not very good. Sad because we had enjoyed a winterlicious meal there in February but things have gone downhill and I won't be back again.

We have been here before and haven't had many complaints. Unfortunately, this time around service was incredibly slow and there were a couple of hiccups with our order. My pasta was only 'okay'. It was definitely overcooked. Will be less inclined to suggest this place again for a gathering.

I wouldn't recommend this restaurant because I didn't have a special experience. It didn't stand out from other Italian restaurants. My colleague and I went there for Summerlicious . She enjoyed her burger, and I had the pasta. I don't usually add salt and pepper to food, but it was quite bland and so I had to resort to that. The service was great though, it just didn't stand out from any other Italian restaurant. I'm not opposed to visiting again.

I went to Scaddabush for the Summerlicious event and had an amazing time. I had the Pizza Fritta for the appetizer, Italian Burger for the entree, and the tiramisu for dessert. I really liked the appetizer and I would definitely come back to eat it again. I thought the Italian burger was delicious (really liked the balsamic vinegar) but it was way too big and I could not finish it. I didn't like the tiramisu because the coffee flavour was way too strong. I thought the restaurant's lighting was too dim as it was hard to see the surrounding area. Service was good, and the servers were polite. Overall, it was a good experience and I would come again.

The website had the incorrect summerlicious menu, so it was disappointing to see the options on the menu in the restaurant that did not match the website. They have since corrected the menu on the website. The restaurant wasn't crowded, but the service was slow for lunch.

They always have amazing food!!! Never a let down with any menu choice you make. Down side is that the service was very slow that night and took over an hour for our food to come out to us but our server was very nice and kept checking up on us to make sure we were doing ok. A little tip, if you are going to eat there make a reservation cause its always super busy and wait times are usually 35-40min, unless you sit at the bar then its faster

The food portion was horrible. Two of us ordered from the Summerlious menu. I would have gotten bigger portion if I ordered off regular menu. I was also told I couldn't get the chicken on the side because they can't deviate from set menu. Meanwhile I saw the same dish at a different table, the chicken was placed on top of noodles (I would been content with that. Waitress should of knew). I won't be returning.

Food was good for a first time visit but the restaurant was not able to handle a summerlicious menu when a number of larger groups were on site. It took 2.5 hours for lunch. This was way too long when people have to get back to work. The manager did try to right the situation for us but the time was lost as a result. I would not go back for lunch but if you are looking to go for a leisurely dinner or are not in a hurry, then I would recommend.

Took my sister here for her birthday dinner. I had put a note on my online reservation to put a candle on her dessert, when I got there I also asked the hostess, she asked if I could tell the barman or if she should tell him, I asked her to tell him because our table was near the barman and I did not want my sister to see. The desert came without the candle!! I had to tell the waiter in front of my sister, ruined the surprise.
We had the summerlicious dinner, I had the salad which was really good, the main and desert nothing to shout on rooftops about.
The bill also came wrong though the waitress apologized and had it changed.
Overall, it was not bad but wouldn't go again.

I came on a Saturday afternoon (around 2:30 pm). The restaurant was somewhat empty but it had a great atmosphere. It took the hostess a minute to sit us down and our server showed up less than a minute after we sat down at my table. I ordered from the summerlicious lunch menu. I ended up having the pizza fritta, italian burger and the strawberry sundae. I also had spicy bread to add some kick to my meal! Overall, the meal was delicious, very filling and the price was very decent for such great food. ($18) I will definitely be coming back!

I made a reservation for 2 through Open Table using my name. My friend and I arrived separately a few minutes apart and each of us told the person when we arrived that we were there for the reservation under my name. We were seated at two different tables on opposite sides of the restaurant. After about 20 minutes of waiting for the other person to arrive, we texted each other to realize that we were both there but at different tables. The host should have checked to see if the other person had already arrived before seating us!

This was one of our favorite meals while visiting Toronto. The fresh-made mozzarella is a must. The pizza was delicious and the cheesecake and deep fried dough bites with chocolate sauce for dipping was heavenly. The white sangria was very refreshing. We will definitely be back next time we visit Toronto!

I had several friends visiting from out of town and we chose this because it was close to their hotel. Our server was AMAZING! She and I chatted before my friends arrived, she took the time to give us her recommendations and even found the perfect spot for our group photo. The food was great and her drink suggestions were on point. It was a great experience and my friends loved the restaurant and kept complimenting me for choosing it.

This was our first time at this restaurant and we really enjoyed the food. The well know fresh Buffalo Mozzarella was amazing and lived up very well to the hype. Unfortunately, we were seated in the lounge and found it very cramped and dark. Almost dingy dark with very poor lighting. This location is desperately in need of a refresh and some new light bulbs.

We always enjoy visiting and bringing our friends from out of town to Scaddabush. Food will fill you up. The waitstaff is friendly. Food never disappoints. And ambiance is great - not too loud to be able to chat but not too quiet that the silence is deafening. Something in between is always good. Will come back again... and again.

Everything we had was awesome. Despite being swamped with two gigantic groups that were being ridiculous, our server took good care of us. We've always enjoyed the food here but for some reason it just seemed a little bit better this time. Polenta tots and chicken parm were highlights. Will definitely be back!

Delicious food, especially grateful for the Gluten Free options! You have to try the fresh mozzarella- it's delicious. Service is typically slow (perfect for a social night out, not if you are in a hurry) but wait staff is super-helpful and friendly. Pizza is fantastic- Our party had the Butcher (meat lover!) the American (peperoni) and the Gluten Free vegetarian (oh-my-gosh... It was incredible!) Daughter had kids pasta- looked amazIng and got 2 thumbs up!

This was an excellent meal with friendly and efficient service. We were greeted in a professional manner and seated promptly. The wait staff were prompt and friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this Restauraunt for any and all occasions.

We noticed Scaddabush right outside our hotel (Chelsea) and stopped in for dinner - my wife had a pizza and I had a pesto chicken, with the red sangria, which we topped off with the apple ravioli dessert. We enjoyed sitting outside under the red umbrellas as it seemed pretty vibrant inside. Our server was very friendly and helpful and her suggestions (including the dessert) were spot on.

Not as good as I remembered...
Was a bit disappointed with our second visit here. I remember being more impressed the first time, last year.
We ate on their narrow sidewalk seating, which was fine, not much traffic and quieter than inside. Servers were all very friendly, but not that efficient. We asked for bread about five times, and when it came out it was two little crusts on a plate for four people! server realized how stupid that looked, and went back for more.
Food was fine, but nothing special. I feel like there are so many "just fine" Italian restaurants, it has to be particularly good or unique to earn any special kudos.
The girls enjoyed their frozen bellini's, aka slushies.
Each couple shared a salad, pizza, and pasta which was enough food.
