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

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

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.
