Scaddabush Italian Kitchen & Bar - Yonge & Gerrard Ratings and Reviews
It was our first time at Scaddabush and we had an amazing experience. Our very knowledgable and friendly server Cody made some delicious recommendations. He was very warm and attentive throughout our meal. Drinks & food were absolutely delicious, we will certainly be back again.
A good place if you are looking for an energetic atmosphere while still able to maintain easy conversation.
We were two, split the greens, calamari and the spaghetti shrimp dish. Great value. I would skip the calamari as it's bland but the rest was good. We didn't try the mozzarella ball, which is their signature starter, but it looks like it is worth a try.
Waitress was fantastic. Friendly, quick and very knowledgable about the entire menu.
Six of us planned a pre-theatre dinner outing. The food came out super-fast and the GIANT stuffed meatball did not disappoint. Our server was amazingly attentive and we got in and out lickety-split! My only comment would be that I would have liked to have the spaghetti al dente, not overdone. All the food looked very impressive. The menu had just enough options. Our reservation was for 6pm and although not full, the restaurant did have a nice fun ambiance. I look forward to going back again.
Never had a bad menu item in my life. That mozzarella is to die for, that's all I can say.
Super friendly staff. Little bit dark and loud, but you can bet I'll be back soon enough. Thanks again for a fantastic meal!
I loved this place so much that I had my wedding rehearsal dinner here, haha.
When an Italian restaurant gets recommended to you by a number of people who themselves have grown up on homemade Italian fare that was honed to perfection as a result of a prodigious historical pedigree stretching back to Italy, it deserves checking out.
So was my reasoning in choosing to give Scaddabush a try. Let me assure you that my experience will certainly not be my last. Exceptionally central and easily accessible location, a varied menu, fantastic service and a wide variety of truly delicious food are the discernible hallmarks of this establishment.
My only knock against it is that the lighting is rather low in intensity. Next time, I plan on bringing my snazzy magnifying glass with built-in lights that I got at the dollar store for about $2, if memory serves. However, otherwise, a real pleasurable experience. Highly recommended to all.
I enjoyed everything except, disappointingly, my entree. I'm lactose intolerant, so my options were pretty limited. I went with the fettuccine capri, which I found tasted more like lemon and parsley than seafood or tomato sauce. It wasn't terrible, but the seafood was few and far between. I loved the zeppole dessert though, and my partner enjoyed his stuffed spaghetti and meatballs.
It was our first time eating at Scaddabush. The charity bread was so good, we'll definitely go back for that. The chicken parmesan bites, too. The penne bolognese was delicious. Makes us want to try all of their other pasta dishes (and I'm not big on pasta). Craig did a great job making us feel welcome & comfortable.
Went to Scaddabush with my father-in-law for a belated birthday dinner and enjoyed it. The classic bruschetta was excellent - and the large is a lot of food! Not that we had trouble finishing it. My father in law had the calamari and said it was "pretty good" - not the best he's ever had but he enjoyed it. He also had the seafood pasta which again was pretty good, and the small was a good portion. Without the appetizers you might want the large but with, he was stuffed. I had the butternut squash ravioli, which I always love. I did get the large, because ravioli servings are always so small! This was more than enough though, and very creamy and sweet and savoury and delicious. It was quite loud in there, so we had a little trouble hearing each other from time to time. I'd go again though.
This was my first time at Scaddabush. My family went for Winterlicious. The food was awesome especially the mushroom and sherry soup which unfortunately doesn't appear to be on the regular menu. Too bad they should reconsider. The charity bread was tasty and the fact that they donate the cost to charity like Sick Kids and others is amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and will definitely go back. Wonderful first time experience, can't wait for the next trip definitely trying the fresh made pasta.
Seven of us dined at Scaddabush pre-concert, and having read the reviews on-line had anticipated good food and good service - I don't really feel we received either. The food was alright, but there are much better options at that price point in downtown Toronto. Our server tried to be engaging but fell extremely short, especially given the numerous errors in service. Scary part? She was training a new server - let's hope the new server won't actually try to emulate her lacklustre service. A number of us have worked in the hospitality industry and are patient, forgiving and understanding on many, many levels, but were disheartened by our service on Thursday night. Worst part? While we were anxious to wrap up our dinner and get to our show she completely dropped the ball on billing and payment. Needless to say we were late for the show.
Staff nice. Gelato rock frozen and unable to eat, including whipped cream. Frozen in dish, not plated for customer. 10 minutes later, still couldn't get a spoon in it. Sent it back and didn't return for another 10 minutes, dish was warmed. All about kitchen convenience, not customer. Only green beans as vegetable for all entries, although menu states "seasonal vegetables". No substitution and not in season, and not vegetables, but vegetable. You get what you get......too bad customer! Really average food, and desert was appalling. Won't return.
