Renzo is very underrated. Good Italian food in a comfortable, casual atmosphere. Much better than La Strada. Only criticism is on the sometimes obnoxious Italian accents of the staff!
I came here for lunch with my family! call the new dishes as: Prosciutto & Mozzarella, Gamberi, Calamari Fritt, .... Very good taste! family members who also commended delicious! But the waitress slowly but I'm quite happy! Prices are reasonable, comfortable space! I will recommend to my friends

I have been here many times. Lunches and dinner. Great value. But, if you go here, ask for Edwardo to be your waiter. Fantastic. I feel like I am back in Italy.
I've been looking for casual dining at University Avenue and I liked Renzo's menu. The simple starter Caprese was served with tasty heirloom tomatoes and quality mozzarella. My main had been Chicken Marsala. This is more complicated, but had been well prepared. The sauce was good and so the chicken and the grilled vegies accompanied it. I sat at the... More
