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... read more

Pasta was pretty good, but lacked some spice. Bartender was a little busy at first and then got Caught up. Would go again.

I can imagine the food is good and business blooms inspite of being dismissive to customers. So for what is worth I drove 15 miles to try this place. Parked and walked 3 blocks. As I waked in asked what I have asked every time I go to a restaurant. If I could use the restroom before first. I was... More

Andrea M, General Manager at Renato's Italian Restaurant, responded to this review

We are sorry to hear about your experience. Sadly the customer didn't even let us greet them and ask if they were dining with us before asking if they could use the restroom. Once we told them there was no public restroom, they responded by saying, "do I look like I'm not going to eat here?" Because of our clean... More

We had an amazing dinner here and my tuna was exquisite! The asparagus had such a delicate and lovely taste and the wine list was wonderful. I'll return every time I'm in Spartanburg visiting my family! This restaurant is on par with the best in large cities.

Our group of eight had a fantastic dinner at Renato. The service was five star!!! The waiters brought out our six course meal with perfect timing. They were on top of the wine service too. The food was simply delicious. The four appetizers were all fresh and very tasty. The Bruschetta was amazing. The two pasta appetizers had fresh pasta.... More

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 happy, stuffed, and very satisfied. My favorite courses... 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
