Great food and atmosphere

We sat outside in back and it was very quiet and the weather always perfect. I had the steak and it was great. Service was good too. The ice cream was great so don't miss that.

Wonderful meal with beautiful presentation. We had the vegetable purée soup and the ravioli with cream sauce. Both were delicious. They have a large assortment of coffees too.

One of my favorite local restaurants here in Taos. Nice atmosphere, central location, good service, and the best spaghetti and meatballs I've ever had! Nice inside in the Winter and a pleasant patio in the Summer, in the front watching the world go by. Also, the bread was very good, that's important.

We just had lunch at Caffe Renato and all the food was delicious. The building was beautiful inside and out and you almost felt like you were dining in one of the beautiful galleries. Main reason I am writing this review is that the host was so gracious to us. We were walking with our Golden Doodle who is a... More

We were seated by a friendly new waitress. She shadowed our 'regular' waitress while orders were placed. Items ordered: BLT, pasta vongole (linguine with clams) and salad, spinach and artichoke ravioli in marinara sauce, Renato salad, and Black Angus burger. Separate checks were asked for – which we discovered included a 20% automatic gratuity. Guess we didn't read the fine... More

I love their pasta vongole, but everything on the menu is good. Good wine list. Sometimes the service can be slow, but let them know if you are trying to make a performance at the TCA. We keep going back, because the food really is delicious.

No complaints here. Charming street side cafe just a few blocks from the town square. We dined outside and it was very pleasant even though it was only feet away from the busy street. Our eggplant sandwiches were excellent on chibata bread. Their cranberry cole slaw was a nice change of pace and very tasty. We highly recommend this venue... More

This is a sweet location. Adjacent to a park and also on main drag. Good for people watching. Should have noted there were no patrons on the patio. Stuck my head inside to inquire about allowing my dog on the patio. Only two patrons. No staff. Eventually the waiter showed up and seated us on the patio. He was very... More

There are many small restaurants in the center of town, but this one offers a quaint garden setting surrounding the adobe building. Lots of food and drink options from sandwiches to salads and Mexican entrees. Service is excellent. A really enjoyable stop before you resume walking around town.
