Having been by the new restaurant Scaddabush a couple of weeks ago we decided to try it on a Sunday evening. It is a large and complex restaurant with many seating choices.
We examined their menu - which is quite large and selected some choices.
We decided on a nice Ripasso wine to start. It was nice and smooth.
Having reviewed the appetizers we decided on sharing a plate of fried calamari. The coating was good but they were quite chewy.
For his main Mark decided to try their chicken avocado BLT on freshly baked flatbread, tomato, pickled red onions, romaine, piccante aoli and house fries. He really liked it but found it was a lot of food.
My wife had the grilled tomato caper salmon with a white wine sauce, parsley butter potatoes and green beans. It was delicious and nicely cooked.
I decided on the pasta (which is made in house daily). I decided to try their pasta called Zucca which was a butternut squash ravioli with grated Grana Padano cheese, hazelnut butter cream sauce, roasted squash and fried sage. They were melt in your mouth delicious and it was quite a large helping.
The service here is efficient and friendly and the atmosphere is upbeat. Our server was personable and efficient and when I mentioned that the calamari were very chewy he talked to the manager, who then took it off our bill. This was a nice touch and an indication that they are concerned about their reputation and customer service. The wine was reasonable and the prices for the food were also in line with the market. Worth returning to to try other selections on the menu.
