Excellent service. Excellent food. Owner opened up to accommodate a lunch birthday celebration despite not typically opening till the evening. Outstanding customer service. Food was delicious and served perfectly. This one will definitely be part of our rotation.

Fantastic little gem tucked away near other restaurants in Torrance that cannot be compared! Outdoor experience surpassed expectations and catered to my special request... which nowadays - who does that?!? Chef Mike... what a treat! Gave a cultural dining experience that I look forward to enjoying especially when the dining room opens again!

This time our experience was a 10. The chef/owner helped us ordering what he thought we would like from wine to appetizers to entree and finally the amazing desserts. I think the service was outstanding.

A group of friends came here on a Friday night. I was able to reserve via Open table for a group of 10 to celebrate 3 bdays. Food was amazing! Service was exceptional with very friendly staff. They have a good size sitting outdoor area set up with a great ambiance. Best Italian restaurant in Southbay.

Food was excellent. But I went there for my birthday. Mentioned it on reservation, told waiter 2 times and it was totally ignored. So we went for dessert at Starbucks after dinner.

We had a great experience here! Came for my brother’s 10th wedding anniversary. I read good reviews and wasn’t disappointed. Michael took care of us and made the night! Was very attentive, funny and personable. We definitely want to come back when they open indoor dining again. Looks really cool inside.

This is a true local place with a fabulous collection of steaks and pasta. The Filet Mignon is a must for any first timer, but beware you might sleep like a rock afterwards!

Went early on a quiet Tuesday. Had the bolognese and meatballs. Could have done without the meatballs. The grilled veal chop is my favorite. Should have ordered that.

Beautiful gem of an Italian restaurant. Feels like you are dining in Italy. Service is on point. Water glasses always filled promptly. Varied menu, with very delicious choices. If you need to make any dietary changes they are more than happy to adjust to your palette.

This is one of our favorite date night places. Quiet setting, you’re under no pressure to eat and run. They have a fantastic wine list. The choices for courses are great plus Chef Mike will modify them or even create something special. Forget the chain Italian restaurants. For just a little bit more enjoy truly authentic Italian cuisine in a quaint setting. You’ll immediately forget you’re in a strip mall in Torrance!

This was my second visit to Aliotta’s; the first being in 2018. It is my girlfriend and I’s yearly restaurant for our anniversary dinner. The best Italian food in town and the ambiance is excellent. Not to mention the cannoli, absolutely awesome. This will be our anniversary spot for, hopefully, many years to come.
