It has moved to Morgan Square in Spartanburg. We ate here for our anniversary, and were not offered anything complimentary. That's ok, but we've eaten at The Strip Club Steakhouse in Greer & High Cotton in downtown Greenville for previous anniversaries and always been greeted with an offer of a free app or dessert. The new location is very nice... More

The food was authentic and delicious. My wife and I loved the service and relaxed atmosphere. We hope to take our daughter there in the near future.

We found ourselves in Spartanburg while visiting family in rural South Carolina. My spouse and I found Renato's on our first night in Spartanburg....and the second night.....what a warm, obviously family owned and operated restaurant. Our waiter, Kyle, steered us toward a wonderful appetizer, recommended terrific entrees.....was most attentive without being intrusive....a true professional. The Seafood is highly recommended! We...

My husband & I have been eating at Renato's for years, and we love it. Usually eat here on special occasions (birthday, anniversary, etc.) since it is more on the upscale side. Look forward to visiting them at their new location on Main Street!!

The best food I have had in the Spartanburg area by far. The flavors and portions out of this world. The one big negative for my wife and I was the atmosphere. There was a large party in our room which is tightly backed, little space between tables. This party was very loud and the language used was very vulgar.... More

We were picking up our daughter in Spartanburg and decided to have dinner in town. I was in the mood for Italian and my search found Renato's. When we pulled into the parking lot I had some slight doubts based on the appearance of the building which seemed like it used to be an old Midas Muffler or something like... More

It seems from other reviews, Renato's may have a spotty record, but our dinner was honestly terrific. It started with a nice ambiance in this small, cozy restaurant. Our Spartanburg local host gave us a choice: a longer experience with the multi-course dinner, or off-the-menu. For this business dinner we chose the 7 or 8-course dinner, which got better and...
