Renata's Cafe Italiano brings European charm and flavor to Old Towne Orange. Several choices for Italian food exist in the area but their outstanding service and quality food keeps me returning and avoiding the others. After discovering their Rigatoni Marsala (with chicken) I felt like...More

Everything was booked except Renata's and so we were pleasantly surprised with how good the food was!! They do charge for bread but it is served garlic or regular and is warm. Excellent Chianti and the side patio was very pleasant.

We were a party of five and each ordered a separate entre. Each dish was properly spiced. My penne in an arrabiata sauce was outstanding. The garlic bread was good; but the regular bread was not of the best quality.

This is our Italian fix when antique hunting at the Circle of Orange. Fourth visit and great food and service each time. House salad dressing is amazing, a perfect blend of seasonings on very crisp and fresh lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. Italian dishes are authentic...More

Not sure why Renata’s gets such high marks. The food is mediocre and the service downright horrible. First, the food: The Bruschetta is a good-sized portion, but the tomatoes they use are totally tasteless. Could use a little more garlic, but the fresh basil was...More
