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!

I wasn't sure about this place, as it's so big and in a tourist area, but the food was SPECTACULAR. I had the burger with garlic-rosemary fries and it was seriously fine-dining quality. The service was super friendly and lovely. I'd definitely go back.

Although this certain trip to this location was quite horrendous. Our server, Adam was great... he was helpful, funny and his service made up for everything else that went wrong. I will be back to see him. This location is my go-to and it is usually fantastic but this time they dropped the ball HARD. I will be back but you guys let me down.

The hamburger and the ravioli came to the table luke warm
which was disappointing because we were really looking forward to those dishes. The mozzarella balls were amazing as usual and the pizzas are always on point.
Service is always consistently good.

Great experience overall! Very much enjoy our service, the waitress was amazing and very polite! Found she was very helpful and resourceful about the menu and picking options! The overall feel of Scaddabush was welcoming and warm! Its a great place for date night or just even going out to enjoy some really good food! I very much enjoyed the fact that everything is made fresh and its super delicious!

My husband and I went to Scaddabush for the first time on Sunday evening as we were staying across the street at the Chelsea. We shared the naked mozzarella appetizer; he had lobster spaghetti and I had baked penne carbonara.....our meal was fabulous!

Slow, unapologetic service, brought us the wrong food, most of the things we wanted were not available any more, went back and forth on the ones that were ("sorry, we don't have it" and five mins later "nevermind, we do"), and left the dirty dishes from the apps up until we finished the dessert.

If you want to actually converse and hear people at your dinner table, this is not the place for you.
Not sure why the music has to be so loud. I come to enjoy the food and the company, not to hear the inaudible blarring music.
But the food was good

For the most part the visit was good. However, the seating was not ideal. There is not an area in the online reservation guide to request a table or a booth and we were seated at a high, uncomfortable table. When we asked to be moved it was met with resistance and were given the excuse that the lower tables are for seniors only. The other issue was the meal itself, my wife did not receive what she ordered and the waitress just shrugged it off as though she didn't hear us when it was brought to her attention. The other 3 meals served were very good and the ambience was as well. I would return to the restaurant and recommend calling to create the reservation so as to secure proper seating.

Our server made the evening. She was attentive and patient. We enjoyed our food and seating. I would only ask that servers should remind patrons that the soups come with this ball of bread crumbs and cheese that take up nearly a third of the serving. I will remember to opt out of that - it is too much for a cup of soup. But to be sure - I enjoyed the BEST roasted vegetable sandwich that I have ever tasted ANYWHERE! Thank you.
Side note: Too noisy for my liking, which is a common issue for open ceiling concepts at these types of large eateries. I have heard many people complain about the noise levels and ambience at these types of restaurants. You would think that would have influenced changes to interior decor and design of modern restaurants by now. It's 1990's industrial style. Did not want to rate the noise as energetic, is energetic is noisy? should offer other as an option - because I could recall the noise disruptions.

The food here is delicious -- be sure to get the Charity Bread! The homemade mozzarella is spectacular. The restaurant isn't quiet but it still has a great ambiance. The service was outstanding-- our waiter, Chris, made many helpful suggestions and was attentive and friendly. We were visiting Toronto from out of town, otherwise we'd be returning to Scaddabush often. We can't wait to get back there for another visit!
