Italian dinner at Scaddabush | Toronto

After six days in New York, I left for Toronto. I had previously been to Canada only once when I visited Montreal in 2009. Ever since I have been following Tiffany, Toronto has been on my travel to list but I only made it happen this summer. I don't know why I had been putting it off for so long and honestly, I regret not having visited the fourth largest city in North America much earlier. 

It was great to get to see the city with the help of Tiffany who lives in the downtown part of Toronto. We had last seen each other in Capri last April. I trusted all her Toronto recommendations because she and I have similar interests and often even order the same food when eating out. 

On my first night we had dinner at Scaddabush. It struck me like an ideal place where you go for food or drinks with friends after work. They serve Italian food and as Tiffany had told me about their great Caprese salad, we both had one as a side dish, as well as the Shrimp Spaghetti (with wine cream, lemon and garlic butter) as a main course. Everything was delicious and super tasty. The pasta could have been more al dente but that was a minor detail. The service was excellent and soon after I realised that this is actually true for all the places that I went to in Toronto. 

More Toronto posts to come in the coming days.

  1. How nice that you were able to meet up with Tiffany over dinner. You can never go wrong with a good caprese salad. It's been year since I last visited Toronto. My friends who live there say that it's really changed. Looking forward to seeing more of your posts from there.

  2. Is one of my fave city in the world, u think I visited it 3 times in my life (the only city I visited in North America) ad I love everything about it, kindest people, best food, greatest views. Did u already enjoy their famous Tim Hortons coffeee lol? xo

  3. I agree with you on everything. I saw Tim Hortons, it was on almost every corner but I didn't try their coffee. A good reason to go back soon! :)

  4. I'm so glad you liked it here! I still can't believe Toronto is the 4th largest city in North America!

    For the pasta..I noticed this is a difference between North American & European pasta. It is more cooked here while in Europe/Italy particularly it's more al dente..(remember that time in Capri I asked you if my pasta tasted undercooked lol)

    Looking forward to the rest of your Toronto posts!

  5. Wow awesome! I feel like when I was in Toronto never experienced restaurants like this.

  6. It's always great to get a local's recommendations and how nice that you met up with Tiffany

  7. I love the look and atmosphere of the restaurant =o) can't wait to see more Toronto photos!


  8. That's great that Toronto has such great service. I love the idea of meeting up with your friends in different places, like you went from Capri to Toronto, how fun!

  9. I have yet to visit Canada myself. I am not too dawn by Toronto or even Montreal, but I'd really love to explore the British Columbia region. It's good that you knew someone in Toronto - it is always helpful to have a local guidance (especially when it comes to good eating spots!). The vibe of this restaurant reminds me a bit of the new restaurant we have in town here, in Fort Worth: Cork & Pig.

    Very nice Restautant. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

  11. Caprese salad is one of my favourite salads. Canada definitely has a lot of great places to offer.
