The food was GREAT

I had one of the best steaks I have ever had, the wait staff left a little to be desired which is why I gave it only four stars. Not cheap, but worth it.

Excellent place to eat for those people who love Italian food - situated in downtown Spartanburg - right on the square - pedestrian friendly and easy parking

We took our 2 sons and daughter-in-law and had a most amazing dinner! The Chef recommended various dishes for us and everything was so delicious. We all had different dishes and we were thrilled with the experience. Highly recommend! Enjoy!

We went having dinner at Renato's Spartanburg downtown. We were looking at the menu and had all normal things you could get in an italian restaurant. The average price was somewhere at 20 dollar. The waiter offered us as well some specialities. And we took the Lamb rack. I can tell you the food was fantastic. But getting our bill... More

We ordered a martini, appetizer with lobster bisque and an 2 entrées. Everything was absolutely amazing TILL the entrees. They brought out eggplant Parmesan, which was not what she ordered. When they did bring out her chicken it was undercooked. I had a carbonara sauce with pasta and it tasted like fat back. Having an undercooked chicken did not leave... More

We've been dining at Renato's since the restaurant was on Kennedy Street. We absolutely love the newer location right in the heart of downtown. It is my absolute favorite restaurant to visit! Italian is my top choice, and I've eaten at many restaurants across the country and in Italy. Renato's is definitely top notch. The food is delicious, the wait... More

Date night with the hubby landed us at Renato's. Now, I'm always hesitant to try Italian restaurants in the south (I'm from NY, and would usually rather just cook it myself), but we decided to give this place a try. Atmosphere was pleasant, warm, and inviting - and quiet enough to actually hold a conversation. A big plus. Despite a... More

We go to Italy often and my wife is from Italy. Does not come close to food in italy. However good for an Italian resraurant in a small town like Spartanburg. Over priced for the quality for me.
