Scaddabush Italian Kitchen & Bar - Yonge & Gerrard Ratings and Reviews
I have been to this location many times and it never disappoints... with my most recent visit we were serviced by "Natasha" she had great energy and was very attentive... I look forward to eating here again very soon as it's one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood.
This restaurant was wonderful! We are vegetarians and everything that was prepared for us was delicious. The mozzarella and pasta are made in-house and you can actually watch the chefs in the kitchen through a window make them. The restaurant is lively, but you can actually hear the conversations at your table, which is great!
I would definitely go back to this restaurant again!
Very disappointed this visit. We were rushed through your meal. The server didn't offer a drink or prior to out app order. We had to ask if we could have a drink first. The entree came half way through your apps. It also took extremely long for the beverages to arrive. The food quality has drastically declined since our last visit.
Restaurant was very busy for a Friday evening of dining. Seated quickly as we had made a reservation. Seated at a high top near bar area. Ordered a salad, chicken parmigiana and a pasta bolognese . Salad came within minutes, even before wine arrived. Was incredibly fast. Sadly the mains didn't arrive until over an hour after ordering. It was acknowledged. And they offered some bread as a gesture. After the long wait though, the chicken was room temperature, at least pasta on the side was hot. The music was much too loud that we couldn't converse. Not the most pleasurable dining experience. At least the server was good. He was efficient, and knowledgeable.
It was my first time to visit Scaddabush and my overall experience here was good.
Since there were so many customers, my friend and I had to wait a long time for our food but they served us with bread and they also apologized several times about this. The taste of pasta, calamari and lemon rosemary soda were worth the long wait. I would definitely revisit and recommend this place to my friends as well.
The restaurant service was poor. Early Saturday night, not too busy. We ordered a bottle of wine and we were nearly finished it when our food - one pizza and small pasta dish - arrived 35 minutes later. Hard to hear the manager and the waiter when they told us the kitchen was having issues. We were offered a complimentary dessert, which was then added to our bill. The waiter then waited at the table as we put the cash into the cheque. Over all a very poor experience. Not my first time at this restaurant, but won't be returning. The staff are just not good enough for the prices you're charging.
The food was fabulous! The charity bread was just the right portion for two ladies, the small portions of the meals were as well. We had the butternut squash ravioli and the spaghetti and meatballs - great flavours and wonderful to have fresh pasta at a chain.
Our server was wonderful and visited the table just the right amount. We weren't offered cheese, fresh ground pepper or chili flakes (which I found odd) - but by the time I tasted my food to the servers return, it was too late to ask.
The only complaint I have is with the volume of the music. We were literally yelling across the table and had to repeat ourselves to the server a couple of times throughout the meal.
Otherwise, a surprisingly good Italian meal for a chain.
Excellent food. Very noisy, which made talking to people across the table difficult. I made a reservation through OpenTable and got seated right by the kitchen which made the noise worse and the ambience terrible. Our server was very nice and did their best to accommodate us. Would go again but will specifically ask not to get seated near the kitchen.
We loved this place!! We are from BC and if we ever go back to Toronto we will definitely be going here again! And I hope we do!!!! The fresh mozzarella is a MUST and I can’t stop thinking about it! We loved everything about this place. You can even doodle on the tables! Make a reso now! You won’t regret it!
I really expected to love this place. The ambience is cool and the menu looked delicious. Our server was amazing and was so considerate and attentive to my friend with very specific food restrictions.
The mozzarella with prosciutto was good, the signature meatball was ok (not not great enough that I would rush back for it) and the cheesecake also delicious (and a huge portion), but I was disappointed by the pasta - the 3 of us who had pasta all found it to be under-seasoned. I had the pesto pollo chicken and also found the sauce unappealing - it didn't look or taste great (mushy pieces of spinach, unflavourful cream sauce). I won't rush back, but would eat here again if the occasion presented itself (ie. someone else wants to go because of location or gluten free options)
I took my family, who were visiting from back home and they absolutely loved it! The staff is very quick and help each other out, which as a previous server that shows a lot in a restaurant. Unfortunately my dad was not crazy about his steak, however he told the waiter who informed the kitchen and manager. The manager proceeded to come over very quickly and was very apologetic and professional. Again, shows great customer service!! I recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants great food and a cool ambiance :)
First time at this restaurant & it was a great night out for dinner with my 20 something daughter, great mojitos & large wine list! We both loved the overall atmosphere -modern twist on rustic Italian, good for fun night out or family dinner as well. We had an awesome server who was bang on with his recommendations, we tried the naked mozzarella appetizer & it was very tasty - mozzarella madefresh in house with focaccia bread, preserves & sea salt -delicious! As a main course I had the spaghetti & meatballs, my daughter had the flatbread pizza. Both dishes were flavorful & fresh with very generous portions, definitely value for your money. Will definitely be back to this location & will bring friends as well!
A disappointing experience. The food was good, but our server was not attentive. He did nothing and came around perhaps twice during our two hour stay.
Took 20 minutes to wait for the machine to arrive so that we could pay, while the server was visibly chatting with friends by the stairwell.
Crostini/bread was not provided with the pasta, and ground pepper and cheese was not offered on our pasta when the meal was served. This was unlike our past visit to this restaurant.
Noise level was excessively loud, and the restaurant not a pleasant place to eat with friends.
We (party of 3) were shoved and then forgotten at a tiny table upstairs, despite having made a reservation and despite there clearly being larger tables around us that were available and which did not fill up during our time at the restaurant.
I will stick with other Italian places in the future.
