“Save you $ and time;”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2010

Who writes the good reviews for this place -- the owner and employees?
The atomsphere is tired, dirty, overly decorated with junk (which was dusty) and dimly lit. The food is bland, no seasoning and very much overpriced; I had sausage and peppers sub; The sausage had zero flavor and was luke warm, the onions and peppers were limp, no char and I didn't think it possible to cut flavor OUT of a pepper or onion. No sauce so it was dry and no cheese; All for $8.00; The same peppers/sausage on pasta for $14.00?! Not a single entre under $12; The wine glass had caked on food - sent it back; Got a new glass with less wine - I guess they poured the wine from the dirty glass into the new glass. The table bread was doughy in the middle - not fully baked and the "virgin" olive oil lost it's virginity several years before. Strange waitress - long dirty hair, dirty black pants dragging floor and this was 15 minutes after opening so she came to work that way? She knew little about the food - "spicey? -- her reply - maybe?" A sub, a pasta dish with a small salad, fountain soda and one glass of house wine ($7.00) all for a mere $34.00 before tip. Who goes there and better yet, who every comes back? Not us. I've spent less and got fresh, seasoned italian at a chain like Carrabba's.
A single positive is for the sub roll -- probably vendor supplied.

“Deplorable”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2010

We ate at Rendini's over two years ago when we first moved to the area. We did not particularly like the food but gave it two more tries and found it palatable. Last night, June 12, 2010, we decided to have dinner at Rendini's. We were given a table in the middle of the outside seating area and we asked for one near the wall out of the way. The hostesses seated us at one. We ordered a glass of wine and were enjoying the evening when another woman (who I'm assuming was the manager) rudely asked us to get up that the table was reserved. We stood for quite a while, wine in hand and quite embarrassed. After 10 minutes we were not reseated so we left. Their way of handling an oops on their part was deplorable. We will not patronize Rendini's again even though we would like to support our local businesses. When the big chains come in and Rendini's goes under, remember.

“nice find in a Shopping Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2010

Realtor recommended. First time we went we could not get in. Too crowded.
Called for a reservation on a later visit for Group of 6. Nice basic decor. Food was very good and portions ample. Serves wine and beer. Our server had a good personality and did well by all of us. We will definitely go again when we are in the area. Is a spot the locals eat at.
