I have eaten at a lot of large scale restaurants and this one is not that bad in terms of service and food. This is my second time here: If you had to ask me what I thought about my first visit I would say that both the food and service was excellent but they played extremely loud music which made it difficult to hear my conversation within our group. After all, it was the weekend so I guess they needed to make the party happening.
Walking in, the setup and scale is very grand. High brick pillars supporting high ceilings, plenty of tables to seat small and large groups, and a huge oval bar lined with televisions just above. Seats and tables everywhere. The bench seating by the windows do feel a little crammed when you make your way in so the table might feel like it’s pressing against your chest.
The food: Love it. Carbs heaven. This time around we ordered:
Fettuccine Capri (Regular $21.77): Large size, tons of seafood, will order again.
Baked Penne Carbonara ($17.49): Baked in a small cast iron pan. Full of flavour and cream. Although the amount is small, it is heavy enough to fill you up.
Margherita Pizza ($15.27): Pretty good size of 8 slices. San Marzano tomato sauce makes the taste. They sort of burnt the first pizza and had to redo it. Second pizza was burnt slightly less but we just simply cut that piece out from the crust.
The service: We arrived 10 minutes before the restaurant was open so we had to wait for a short time to be seated. Madison was our server and she accommodated our every need. When we complained about our first pizza being burnt, she went straight back to the kitchen and reordered a 2nd pizza for us. When she saw that we cut out a big chunk of burnt crust from the 2nd pizza, she was very generous to take the entire pizza off the bill. Now THAT is how you take care of your customers.
Overall, Scaddabush meets my approval. I would recommend eating here during a weekday lunch unless you don’t mind the noise level during happy hour.
