Took more than an hour to bring my wife and I our entrees on a Thursday night and it wasn't crowded (there were empty tables). Within that time we heard their playlist at least twice and it was terrible and very loud. Because the music was so loud the waitress had to scream for us to hear her, which was very annoying.

I would NEVER return to this restaurant.
We made a table reservation through OPEN TABLE...arrived for 6:45 pm on a Tuesday evening.
We waiting 20 MINUTES to even be acknowledged ~ we had 3 different wait-staff look and walk by us - never acknowledged - said hello, brought water - nothing.
Pathetic actually. Being in the hospitality service industry myself -- this is terrible.
It wasn't like the place was so busy that they couldn't have at least acknowledged.
Enough said -- would definitely NOT RECOMMEND

Went for NYE, place was packed but thank God we had a reservation. Hostess was very friendly and professional, smaller sized booth but perfect for just the 2 of us. Waitress was very attentive and helpful, drinks came fast and appetizer just as quick. Only complaint is the charity bread was bathed in garlic and kept reappearing throughout the night haha. Had the pizza and it was amazing, great crust and fresh veggies. Wife loved her pasta, and the tiramisu was amazing. It would've been just as great had we brought our daughter as it was a lovely family atmosphere. Will definitely be going back next time in TO.

I thought the food and drinks were amazing and delicious! We had made a reservation in advance and were told partway through our meal that we were only allowed to stay for 15 more minutes! Wasn't impressed by this in any way given we spent a lot of money and had booked a reservation. Thought it was very rude of the server to say this and the "kick out" came from management. We were going to order more drinks but after being told we had a limited amount of time to stay...it definitely dampened the experience. There was barely a line up to get in and other tables available so didn't see a reason for the server to say this. So if you book a reservation be warned they may kick you out after an hour!

This is a great group of family venue. We booked for two families and it was a perfect restaurant for the kids and us. Food was delicious and the kids loved their food. I loved the family-style servings and very good value for our meals.

Dinner with the family, kids home for holidays - not often we find a spot where all six of us (five adults one teenager) find something each of us really enjoys - we did this time! Was a great time enjoyed by all!

I have enjoyed dining here in the past and this time was no different. Everything was wonderful! I always order the charity bread with the Baked Penne Carbonara and it always hits the spot. My friends and I loved our server who was kind, polite and attentive to our needs. He also took great care of my friend's daughter who was very pleased with her pepperoni pizza and cookies. We had also ordered calamari, sangrias, the Fettuccini Capri, the Spaghetti and Meatball as well as a the Mario Pizza. The food was delicious and the service exceptional. The atmosphere was welcoming and warm. I highly recommend this restaurant location for group dinners and events. It's one of my favourite places to dine at when I'm in the mood to relax and have some good old fashioned, freshly made pasta.

Second time back to this restaurant. I brought my mom this time. Made a reservation 1 hr before coming, with no issues. Quick to get to table. Our waiter Alex A. was EXCELLENT!!! He was knowledgable , very friendly and came by our table to check in on us throughout our stay. He made out experience so so worth it! The food was amazing...mozzarella ball...yum! We both had the Italian burgers, with fries and rosemary garlic fries. I will most definitely be back!

Waited 1 hour, shrimp was missing from my seafood pasta when I told them they brought me 3 small shrimp. Pasta sauce was very bland. Calamari were small and overcooked. Mussels and scallops were so small. It was a party of 7 and no one was happy with their meals. Overpriced. I'd go to East Side Mario's for seafood pasta it is way better and comes with bread and salad for 18.00. Scaddabush is 21.00 no bread or salad. Will not go back.

The food was absolutely amazing. The wine list was great. I wish the LCBO stocked some of them!
The ambiance was nice, but the music was a bit to loud for the setting.
Our waitress was great. The hostess leaves something to be desired ad she was not very personable. Someone from the bar brought a refill of wine and didn't say one word!
Overall it was great and highly recommend going there.

I always get their fresh mozzarella that never fails to disappoint. Made fresh everyday , always delicious. Location close to plenty of parking and near Dundas stop. Great place to hang out, great atmosphere with a live DJ on Friday nights.

Restaurant in great location. This is a huge restaurant and the orders must've gotten a bit backed up at the kitchen so we had to wait for quite a bit of time.
I ordered the zucca ravioli (small size) and I don't think I really got $20 worth of food.

Not the greatest food. Pasta was dry, calamari was so bland we sent it back. The only saving grace was the mozzarella, in which it's known for. So, the caprese salad was the winner of the evening. Sorry, but the restaurant next door...Reds.... was way better.

The food is delicious & consistent (we've been there a few times) - especially love their in-house mozzarella . Servers are polite, friendly and attentive. Only downside is that it's loud and very open so not a great romantic spot for quiet or deep conversation.

I thought the food took longer than usual to get to our table, considering there were only 3 lunch orders from our table and the restaurant was not busy at all. I believe we placed our orders around 11:45am and didn't get serve until at least 12:20pm. Since we were here during the lunch hour from work, we had to be on track for time, so I watched the clock carefully. I ordered the procuitto and fig jam grilled cheese. It was really oily, to the extent that I couldn't finish it because of how oily it was. I was disgusted by how much grease was left on my fingers from holding the sandwich - it was very disappointing.

The food was consistent compared to the other Scaddabush location I've visited. Overall, the only thing that was lacking was the delivery of the food to the table. We ordered two items for dessert and it took 20 minutes for it to arrive.

The food was good but the service was terrible. Bad enough not to return. There seemed to be enough staff and servers around but our table had such slow service and we were celebrating a birthday so it was a shame.

This was our first visit to a Scaddabush. It was busy and the waitress apologized for the wait, I appreciated that. We waited a long time for everything. I just wish our meals were worth the wait. They nailed the kids pasta with butter! I had the spaghetti and meatball, I wish I had of just ordered a meatball. The meatball was delicious, but the pasta was undercooked and stuck together , like they didn't rinse it or something. It was gluey and the sauce was non existent, which was disappointing since it sounded yummy. The kids pasta was cooked perfectly. We also had the pesto cream sauce pasta dish and it was yummy, the pasta was cooked way better than my spaghetti, it was still not quite al dente, although the sauce made up for that. Our appetizers were awesome, I would go back for those.

Have been to this restaurant several times. Food is consistently good and in a fun environment. The service was very good and friendly. The only problem (and this has happened when I've visited before) is that the washroom had a broken hand dryer and also was out of paper towels. This was mentioned to staff and though apologies were made with a promise of it being rectified, a second visit to washroom was exactly the same-no towels had been brought in and the dryer was still broken. Especially disappointing when the problem had already been told to a staff member. I will return but with what our dinner and wine cost for a special occasion, I would expect to have the washrooms in excellent order.

Our server Alex was quite happy to offer recommendations, and let us have a very leisurely evening. The goat cheese and avocado crostini was wonderful. Portions are generous - you'd better be hungry if you order the regular size portion!
