My friends and I love this little family gem of an Italian Restaurant. Casual, great menu, more reminiscent of the 1960s. And the BEST Margarita pizza ever! We make a point to go every 6 weeks.

AMAZING!! Scardinos was listed as #2 on Yelp and all previous reviews were pretty good, so we decided to give it a try! It is located in a strip mall and does not look like much from the outside. The matron who greeted us outside...More

Don’t let that it is in a strip mall bother you. This is a fine neighborhood restaurant with excellent service and large menu of choices. Featured wines are tasty . One cannot go wrong here.

Every dish I’ve ordered is delicious. We’ve been there a dozen times and never been dissatisfied. It’s a kind of small restaurant so get there early, especially on the weekends.

Despite trying to speak with manager and writing to owner, gluten-free protocol is totally ignored. We’ve tried four times. The dough is fine as it is on its own pan but nothing else is remotely safe. The sauce is rubbed onto the dough with the...More

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.
