Gourmet Italian Food With Top Service

This restaurante is a high-end, white table cloth, Italian wonder in the heart of the South. Five star food, professional service - this is the place to take the gal on prom night for a high-brow dinner, or take the spouse for the anniversary celebration.

We used to eat at the old location on a fairly regular basis and usually thought the dishes were outstanding. So we were looking forward to dining at their new location downtown for out anniversary. It was a Monday, so it was not too crowded. The hostess went to seat us in the middle of the room. I asked for... More

The ambiance is pleasant. Food was nice. The owner (chef?) stopped by the table and I found him dismissive to the other patrons at the table other than the one he knew. He also interrupted an ongoing conversation without so much as an "excuse me." Perhaps if he wishes to present a better class restaurant, he himself should be well... More

We really weren't planning on having a 'fancy' dinner but ended up staying anyway. The service was very good. The food, meh. The salmon was a bit overcooked but decent. My husband had pasta with meatballs and sausage. He says better than a chain but really not up to 'fine dining' status or prices. I guess overall for the atmosphere... 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

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
