We dropped into Fredericksburg for lunch on our way back from Williamsburg. Came upon Renatos, checked the reviews on trip advisor and gave it a try. Real cloth napkins and tablecloths gave it an upscale appearance, but the prices were very reasonable. One of us chose lasagna and the other one of the daily specials, each $10 including a salad...

We were taking the long way home from a visit to Washington DC, and decided to drive through old town Fredericksburg Virginia. It was lunch time and my wife an I were both hungry. Saw nothing on highway 17, so I circled the block and found Ristorante arena to on William street tuck away in a small brick building. On... More

Our best dinner in Fredericksburg though I rated two other places highly too. Both my wife and I had different veal dishes, both excellent. You could cut the veal with your fork! The sauce I should have bottled to take home, but my wife's version very similar so it would have been onlyto save her time in making her own.... More

There are 2 Italian restaurants on this street, and Renato is much better. It is clean, service is excellent, and the food is very good. It is certainly a fine restaurant to enjoy.

Over the last 30+ years, we have never had a disappointing meal at this restaurant! My favorites are the veal dishes since I never cook veal at home; each one has its unique taste and is always perfectly prepared. Try the avocado and crab appetizer; it can be the whole entree at lunch.( I am still amazed at how they... More

A friend took me here for the first time for a birthday lunch. Think we may have hit them on a particularly bad day given the many positive reviews. Only two tables were full when we arrived, but they had what appeared to be a group event in the back. The gentleman who seated us never smiled and the service... More

Mozzarella in Carozza is the tastiest thing to start your meal. Deliciously fried bread sandwiched around creamy, melted mozzarella cheese drizzled with a lemon parsley wine sauce. It's a delight! They serve fantastic fish and decadent pasta dishes, beautifully prepared meats and nice salads that come with your entree. If there's any room at the end, please try a cafe... More

We were skeptical because of earlier reviews but decided because we are from the area now we needed to give it a try and I'm Italian! We arrived and were seated right away. With in a minute a server came with water and a minute later a basket of bread and olive oil dip. The restaurant filled up quickly, we... More

On 7/20, our friends and us had dinner at Renato's. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was great, and our server Juan was fantastic. We all enjoyed our dinner and if we go back to visit Fredericksburg we will definitely have dinner there again.
