I was treated to a birthday dinner at Renato's and this was hands-down one of the best meals I have ever experienced. Renato offered our group of 8 the "Tour of Italy" dinner. We were feeling adventurous so we all agreed. 9 courses later (well including the palette cleansing sorbet), we were... read more

Renato's has been in their new restaurant for Segal months now. We just never got around to going. Arriving for an early supper around 5:30, we were welcomed and seated immediately. We'll be back. The appetizers were as good as I have ever had anywhere. The service was attentive but not pushy. The entrees were very good as were the... More

Food was extremely good! Service was average. For a restaurant with a somewhat dress code they had a bus load of girl basketball players come through in there gear and all of a sudden our great service went down hill. It took 30 minutes to get the main course out after the salad. Oh well we drank wine! If you... More

I try and eat here a least once a week, usually at the Bar. The chicken and shrimp in lemon sauce is awesome as is the salmon. The new location as Great and the decor makes it very authentic. I've eaten at Great Restaurants all over the world and Renatos is as good as any of them. The owner is... More

We stayed over to be able to have dinner there two nights in a row!!! This made our holiday celebration for the two of us! The fish in any recipe is... More

Our first visit to the new location was on the first night they opened. We had an average server who had minimal wine experience, and not much better on the food descriptions either. In his defense, it was opening night. After looking over the menu, what stood out to us, surprisingly, with high price range(even if it were not Spartanburg),... More

This was our first visit to Spartanburg and our first visit to Renato's. We loved it. We arrived for our 6:30 reservation and were taken to our table immediately. Our friendly waitress took very good care of us and was prompt and efficient in every way. The room was full, with many families enjoying an evening out. The Italian bread... More

My husband took me here for my birthday dinner. We had been to the old location but not to the new one. The service and food was excellent. We loved everything except we miss the romantic atmosphere...would have been nice to have the lights a little dimmer and candles on the table...maybe a quieter, more romantic room for those celebrating...

I was back in Spartanburg on business. Being Italian, I always enjoy a good Italian meal. I had searched the Internet last year and wanted to eat there. It was very good then, (almost 12 months to the day), so I wanted to go back. It was also in a new building. The parking situation was absolutely brutal, very, very... More
