Not sure what happened to this place, but we are for sure not going back. My husband and I decided we wanted their Lasagna and a Prosciutto Pizza but to eat at home, so we called it in for pick-up. As I was on the phone ordering the pizza the lady tells me that they do not have a Prosciutto... More

I was craving the old school Italian vibe of my youth, you know the checkered plastic table cloths, speedy waiters and basic food. I went to my trusted TripAdvisor resource and it suggested Scardinos. The reviews were spot-on. The atmosphere was old school. The prices a little higher. BUT the pizzas and Caesar Salad we had were delicious. The pizzas... More

Good food and very generous portions. Service was friendly, though a little slow. Would definitely go back.

Got take out from this great family restaurant and have to say am always amazed by the quality. Pizza and pasta this time and everyone loved it. The place is not cheap, you might think so by the location, but you pay for the quality. Inside dinning is great too, with a good wine selection, they have outdoor seating but... More

The entrees are very well made, but in a low end strip mall it's seems the prices should be a little lower. If you don't care about ambience then the you'll be happy. Pizza is good but very over-priced compared to comparably good and better places. 3 stars on pizza.

Love Scardino's. Knew about this establishment for quite some time. However, it fell off our radar....for a short time. We went back this past Wednesday and we are glad that we did. The atmosphere is quaint and cosy. Good selection of wine. I am not sure if it was just last Wednesday or every Wednesday, but bottle was 1/2 off.... More

This is a small quaint restaurant that serves excellent Italian home cooked meals. The prices are reasonable and their food is wonderfully delicious. Their food is served with warm hospitality. The restaurant features a gourmet early supper for a single price (order must be placed before 5:00 pm).

There are hundreds, if thousands of good Italian restaurants in California. Scardino's is one of them. Yet my wife and I go there over and over again. Why? Because were are treated special there. It is cozy. They place Italian music. The food is delicious. The restaurant is located in a non-descript strip mall near a Chinese restaurant. A person... More

Italian food in Redondo Beach can be tricky but Scardinos has it figured out. Great foundational dishes as well as some of their own renditions makes for an incredible evening with friends and family over a bottle of wine 🍷! Enjoy!

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.
