In a recent review The DAILY BREEZE wrote .... "There are some wonderful small restaurants that dot the landscape of Italy. If you want to duplicate the experience of traveling to Europe without the expense, visit Scardino's Italian Restaurant in Torrance." We are a family owned and operated ristorante much like one would find in the neighborhoods of any southern Italian city. Our authentic recipes originate from all southern provinces of the country. Our pasta, pizza and seafood is carefully prepared each day with the highest quality ingredients available, most imported from Italy. We also have an excellent selection of moderately priced Italian wines and fantastically delicious Tiramisu. The Iorillo Family - Phillip & Pauline along with daughters Tracy & Kristi - and their friendly, professional staff will pamper you with world-class service and Italian hospitality. Our intimate, warm Italian atmosphere makes Scardino's the perfect choice for entertaining your family & friends.

Great family restaurant.

This is a very quaint Italian restaurant with great service, delicious food and a warm atmosphere. They just recently enlarged the restaurant, but it has not lost it quaintness. I feel like I'm eating in a family dining room when I am there. Just love it. They have an outside eating area that... read more

This is a very quaint Italian restaurant with great service, delicious food and a warm atmosphere. They just recently enlarged the restaurant, but it has not lost it quaintness. I feel like I'm eating in a family dining room when I am there. Just love it. They have an outside eating area that is pet friendly.

This is a family run Italian restaurant. Excellent food and although it's a small space it's worth the visit.

Scardino's used to be one of our favourite local restaurants with good food, good prices and good service. On our recent visit the restaurant had expanded into the adjacent space and the food had declined to just average. Prices are still good and they still have their early bird specials but I out we'll return. I heard that ownership had... More

I joined my husband who is town on business & found the reviews looking for a relaxing non-chain dinner. Service & food were wonderful!!!! We each had chef's specials which were delicious as was the wine & dessert (the lemon cello gelato was refreshing & perfectly tart).

Authentic Italian cuisine served quickly and by pleasant people in a clean and comfortable setting. Try the pink sauce with your dish. And enjoy wines on Tuesday for 50%of usual price.

Fairly small, family owned and operated, good food with great atmosphere. They are still using white tablecloth and have a nice selection of wines. Pricing is favorable and we have never been disappointed. We have been to this restaurant about 15 times over the last 4 years

We eat at Scardino's at least once a month! The small, neighborhood feeling is a nice touch. Waiters are great and very little to no turn over. They welcome you back just like a small town feel . . . super nice. Food is very good, but a little pricey. They stay consistently busy so to minimize your wait; call... More

My wife and I love Scardinos. The food is wonderful and the service matches. It is a small place and we suggest making a reservation. The menu is available for takeout and delivery. We highly recommend Scardinos.
