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.

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 The waiter hardly ever came by and the decor was very outdated.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

Actually, I love the lasagna, the chicken cacciatore, the tiramisu, and many other items on the menu. The size of Scardino's is small, which we prefer, and reservations are recommended. The staff is very friendly and feel like family. It's our go-to restaurant!!

It is so fortunate to have a good restaurant in your own neighborhood! My family and my friends always enjoy this Italian restaurant. The service is always excellent and the food is surprisingly good. I have been spoiled by this place! Try the linguini and clams or the chicken piccata, or anything else, it is all amazing! A great wine... More

I went there when it opened, it's located at the corner of where I live, I walk my dog past there every day. I was disappointed with the food, it was more Ecuadorian than Italian, featuring papuas, the music, even today when I was walking past, was Hispanic, but it is always crowded, every day! So I must be missing... More
