Our host, who is a regular, asked the chef to make selections for us. Eleven of us were brought a spectacular 5-course meal with some of the best Italian food I have ever had outside of Italy. The service was attentive without being overbearing and the food was delightful. The prosciutto and cheese starter was delectable.The pasta course had an... More

This is absolutely one of most disappointing Italian places i have been to in a long time. The bldg inside and out looks very nice. Good location. Friendly staff. The food is tasteless, it sounds good on the menu. The Stracciatella had no flavor watery eggdrops and spinach. I could not put enough salt in it to elevate it! The... More

Just discovered Renato's about a year ago. It has become our go-to place for special celebrations. The service is excellent and Renato is wonderful. Although we had only been in a couple of times, Renato came over to our table and asked how my husband was doing (he had just had surgery). I was very impressed that he remembered us.... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Spartanburg. Great food. Try the Zaglia Wine. The service was better at the old location and the feel to the restaurant was better. We still love to eat there.

So rude, never been treated like that ever in my life and we're from Los Angeles. Very, very disappointing. Owner should be ashamed as he told server we... More

We do apologize for your most recent experience at our new location - we have addressed the issue about being seated at the bar - South Carolina law prohibits anyone under the age of 21 to be seated & served at a bar, that will never happen going forward - we do maintain a strict dress code, which we realize...

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

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...
