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.

best little Italian restaurant in Torrance.

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.

We have been eating dinner here for several years now. Never a disappointment. The staff is friendly and very attentive. Food is prepared daily and occationally they run out of some items because of this, but there are many other choices if this happens. Make a reservation as it is a small restaurant and very popular with the locals. We... More

Went to Scardino's for a New Years Eve dinner with a group of family and friends. As usual, the experience was excellent. Good food, service, and atmosphere in a new dining room made for a great start to the evening.

Tried the chicken Marsala, average. Similar to Olive Garden, was not really impressed. Garlic bread that was brought to the table was dry, brittle, not worth eating. Small restaurant, limited seating.

This is a family run restaurant in a strip center in Torrance. Food is very good-make a reservation, it's small and gets crowded. Bring your own wine, the selection is marginal and selective.
