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.

Went with my wife and grown children. Had a reservation and were promptly seated. Wine is fairly priced. I recommend the calimari as a starter, sautéed not fried. We raved about the risotto, the lasagna and the chicken Marsala. Attentive staff! A must try!

I must first say that the food here was wonderful. My daughter, who never can finish a whole plate at a restaurant, had no problem eating her entire plate of tortellini. She loved it. Our major complaint was with our waitress. She was horrid. To...More

My wife and I were on holiday nearby so went here for dinner. Initially I was a bit put off by the huge menu (thinking that they couldn't do all of them well) but I was wrong. This is a busy and obviously popular restaurant....More
