About
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.

Homey Italian spot in a strip mall. Came here for dinner with a couple of friends and waited for about 20 minutes to get a table. Outdoor seating that is dog-friendly as well as indoor seating available. The outdoor seating does have heating. Parking is free and directly in front of the restaurant. We had complimentary garlic bread which we wolfed down and shared the lasagna, pumpkin ravioli, and pesto (we added chicken for an additional charge). One of the dishes came with minestrone soup on the side. The pastas were hearty and the sauces were all well made. My favorite was the pumpkin ravioli. The spot is family friendly and primarily local. Single occupant restroom is available inside close to the kitchen.

We always go here for birthdays and regular dining. The food isn't pretentious. This is a neighborhood trattorra, but expect consistently excellent food and a wait staff that is top notch. The place is surprisingly busy, even on a weeknight, so make reservations. Their warm salmon salad is tasty and healthy. Their other dishes are filling and fun. My kids love the place. I do too.

They were very busy on this Wednesday evening at the restaurant so I suppose that's why it took a long time to wait on us. But that is the only thing I can say that bothered me. The food was absolutely delicious - the garlic bread was buttery and warm, the eggplant cheesy and yummy. Once we got our menus - and then later when we got our water - and then way after that when we got our meals, everything was really great! Obviously, others like it too as it was hopping - and on a weeknight. Make reservations and if it's been a hot day be sure to ask for an outdoor table. Delicious.

The food is below average now, was better quality and better tasting a few years ago. Ordered online and picked up. Picked the steamed spinach with baked mushrooms and cheese but they gave us boiled spinach with some garlic at the same price. The vegetable pastina soup didn't have mini meatballs as indicated but rather a small meatball that was minced and not much of it. Garlic bread had no garlic on it. For this many mistakes or corner cutting we sure paid a lot of money. Will not go here anymore.

Amazing food by the way. There’s great service, attention, and attentive staff too. I love the restaurant ambiance; in my experience the food is greatly enjoyed when a person is in a great mood coming and starting off from their home.

I have gone here as a family several times and wanted to order their food for our lunch meeting. We ordered pizzas and salads and people are still talking about it weeks later. It’s an office favorite now! The margherita pizza is amazing!

Went to Scardino's because of the reviews but sorry to say we do not agree with them. This is a "Red Sauce" Southern Italian restaurant. The owner and servers are very nice but the food is lacking in quality. My shrimp parma was burnt on the bottom and swimming in soooo much red sauce you could hardly find it and my husbands veal parma was cut very thick and also swimming. The owner was very kind and asked if we wanted another dish but it was too late. The highlight of the meal was the wine but we did not come for wine - we came for food - we will try to find a better choice of restaurant the next time we want a good Italian meal.

Called in reservation. They lost it, made it again, they got time wrong. They need a better system. They were out of Prosecco. The food was very good, as usual. I will be back.

The food tastes excellent and the size of the dishes is huge, so you'd better be hungry when you eat there, 😁. The service is good and people are very friendly.

I've tried the chicken marsala, the eggplant parmigiana, the pizza, the beef ravioli with meat sauce and the lasagna and they were all delicious.

Great for a date. Reservation are a must or stand outside for a table. Expensive for pizza but it's worth it I go there to impress. Yum yum you got to try it
