Authentic Italian with a Friendly local twist

If you like pizza cheesy, and you like toppings galore, you might want to give this a try. Reno's cheese on their pizza is astounding. We are a regular here and each time it tastes as good as the first time we experienced it. Reno and his wife will make you feel welcome and truly appreciate your... read more

I ate here with a group of 7 ladies and we were seated quickly. The pizza on the buffet didn't taste bad, but was not very warm. I got some Bacon chicken ranch as soon as it was brought out and it was very good. I think because the crust is thin the pizzas have a tendency to cool off... More

We've been going here for several years and have always really enjoyed the food. Not tonight! We ordered the Reno's Special pizza. Yes, it had lots of toppings but at least 75% of them were olives. Three different kinds! We love olives but there was so many that the pizza tasted like brine on a crust. There was very little... More

My definition of a Good Chef is someone who takes pride in his craft. The taste of his food and its' presentation should reflect this pride. The residents and visitors to Carlinville have been blessed with a Superb Chef. MR. RENO takes pride not only in the pizzas that he has developed, but also in the magnificant pasta dishes that...

The service is ok. The lasagna and the sauce used to be better I'm not sure what they've changed but it's not as good as it used to be....very disappointed.

I like the main part of the restaurant, the original front area, but the area by the buffet is crowded, tables too close together, and it was hot, stuffy, and muggy in there. I did not like the choices on the buffet, and it sure would be nice to put labels next to the food choices so people know what... More

We live a long way away but Reno’s Pizza is always one of my first stops when I visit- we just can’t find pizza like his elsewhere. Eat inside, Carry out, Delivery, or Buffet- it’s always delicious. Reno and his family are almost always around, working and checking on customers. They will make you feel like family in no time... More

We are vegan and we asked for a pizza without cheese. It was delicious! We come from Italy and it was nice to find an authentic Italian place in this charming Illinois town.

My favorite pizza is the thin crust sausage. Simple... but very good! Stuffed pizza is delicious too! The Special is: buy a extra large thin crust & get a small for free. Would recommend to anyone passing through.

We came with friends who had been before, but this was our first time. They recently opened up a new room behind the main restaurant. The only bad part is, you have to go back out the front door and around the side of the building to get there. It's decorated in mostly 1950's and Route 66 motif. Service was... More
