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

Excellent food and staff, the place is small and I've never been a big fan of the outside seating right with the parking lot. I would recommend using this for great Italian take out unless you get lucky and can get inside The outside location is a strip mall that is busy so you might not find it attractive as... 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!

I love this intimate "mom and pop" restaurant! The food is amazing, particularly the chicken parm. I only wish I lived close by.

Scardino's is a great place to have a nice informal dinner with family or friends. The food is good to excellent, depending upon your selection and tastes. Its not a place for fresh fish, or lamb but more for southern Italian comfort food. Pasta and Pizza reign supreme here and the sauces are very good. They do a lot of... More

Had a party of 10 that on whim went there for dinner. Restaurant was very accommodating and service was attentive and friendly Calamari for appetizer. Not fried but sauted in a light tomato sauce. Very tender and fresh. Penne papalina with chicken was flavorful. Pasta doneness was good and the sauce not too heavy. Chicken picatta was a hit and... More

Nice family owned Italian establishment. It's been here a while and the people I went with have been here a lot. I had the pumpkin ravioli and it was good. Had a lot of sauce, I would ask for a tad less when we go back. My friends had lasagna and spaghetti, and linguini with clams. It all looked delicious.... More

When my lasagna was put in front of me my six year old granddaughter told me there were ants on it. I thought she was teasing me. Unfortunately she was right - there were lots of tiny ants on top. We'll never go there again!

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.
