“Great food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

The restaurant was a very welcoming and the food was outstanding for the price. The service however lacked for customers dining in. There were several tables and each table appeared to be waiting to order, receive their food and then pay.

This place has the potential to be an outstanding place to eat, however they need to look at diners experiences a bit more closely.

“Order only pizza...make sure it's takeaway.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I went in to Rene's Pizza at 6:30pm on a Monday night. There were five people working at the front counter. We were one of three couples in the restaurant. They were not busy, but there were five people working the front just having conversations and cutting/boxing pizza.

We ordered two tap waters, a small Mexican pizza, and a caesar salad. We never got served the tap water. My husband's pizza was great, but he was done eating before I got my chicken caesar salad. When they finally brought it out, I wound up sending it back. My husband was done eating, and I didn't want him to sit and wait for me to eat a pathetic looking salad. Needless to say, I was incredibly annoyed.

Our suggestion - get the pizza for takeaway. They have great takeaway specials and actually make good pizza. Don't expect any kind of service in the restaurant.

“Good pizzas, a nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Making a good pizza can't be that hard, so why are there so many bad ones? Thankfully Renes get it right. Ordered a Marinara and a Meat Something-Or-Other and they were both on time and delicious.
When it comes to pizzas it ain't any more complicated than that. If you prefer cheap crap go to Dominos.

“Best pizza's and pasta in Blue Mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We drive from Blackheath to get Rene's pizza and pasta. Well worth it. Clean, well priced and fantastic pizza and even better pasta - and that is take away. Yet to eat in the restaurant but have no doubt the food is even better - which would be hard as their take away is top notch.
