Description: 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.

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.

From the reviews, I expected fantastic food. It was mediocre, at best. I didn't finish my meal because it was bland and tasteless. The waiter hardly ever came by and the decor was very outdated.

Love coming to this restaurant. Food and service always great. My favorite is the eggplant Parm. But the shrimp dish is great too. Huge shrimp. And the bread... Wow. You should try it.

The good things about the place: very generous portions, nice ambiance, excellent service, trattoria-kind of feeling. Other than that, let us be honest: the food is not really truly italian, even though the place is supposed to be an Italian restaurant. To some extent, that is okay. Yet, the food was mediocre, at best, all the three dishes we tried... More
