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.

It's been several years since we've been here and I doubt we'll wait that long again! We stopped in for lunch and enjoyed the Chicken Piccata and the Italian Sausage & Peppers lunch plates. Prior to their arrival, some warm, soft, garlic bread arrived and quickly disappeared. Thankfully they were quick to refill the basket. The wife's chicken came with... More

Italian restaurants either make it or break it based on their sauces. Scardinos nails it. I prefer red sauces(gravy) especially arabiatta. I have tried several of their dishes, all with different sauces and all were excellent. Great west coast Italian.

We've been visiting Scardino's for dinner for years since it is within easy walking distance. Over the years we've seen it grow from a local pizza restaurant to a first class Italian restaurant. Before we could just walk in but now we advise making reservations even though they've doubled their size over the years. One has a lot to choose... More

Smallish Italian with both a great value early bird menu and an extensive regular menu with wide variety of Italian dishes. Broad wine list also. The kind of neighborhood place one can go to over and over without getting bored. Very friendly service

Went there a couple of nights ago with friends and kids, 30-45 minute wait, so decided to do take out, got the combo dish for my son and I to share. Quantity and quality good, but had to pay extra for salad, $25 for a meal and salad

Great Italian corner restaurant - feels like going to an Italian friend's house in Venice..very warm and welcoming atmosphere; even better food with the Risotto (veg) that i ordered outstanding - just the right portion size, not too cheesy and with teh right amount of spinach to give it the tangy taste.. Highly recommended!

Wonderful home style restaurant! Extensive menu- it's easy to find something you like! Smoked salmon app. Is really enjoyable. Linguine with clams (white sauce) is simply terrific. It is all good. I do so enjoy this restaurant!

Nobody in the family ever asks me anymore where I want to go when we're going out for dinner. The answer is always the same: Scardinos. The pizza is great, the eggplant is super and the Tiramisu is stunning. And Wednesday, bottles of wine are half off. The prices are reasonable, the food is great and the people are super... More
