Celebrated birthdays with friends over lunch here. Happened to coincide with Summer Restaurant Week. Turns out their regular lunch specials are a better deal than the restaurant week menu because they include a salad for the same $10. Our server was friendly and helpful. The house creamy Italian dressing was very good on the fresh salad. My cheese ravioli in... More

We live in Fredericksburg and here several times a year. It is my absolute favorite! Linguini with white sauce the best I have ever eaten. The flat chicken with lemon and butter sauce to die for. The best and most consistent Italian restaurant. And do very romantic!

Spectacular dining experience. The chicken was exceptionally good - and my sister said the veal was great too. We had the calamari and oysters rockafeller for appetizers. The calamari was really terrific! The caramel custard for desert was worth the trip! Great service, great drinks, great prices. A place we'll definitely return to.

We stumbled upon this place while sightseeing in the historic district. The classic Italian menu includes some innovative entrees along with traditional favorites. We were greeted and promptly seated. The waiter, Luis, was very knowledgeable and eager to please. We found the food quality and preparation excellent! We don't say that too often. If you appreciate the Italian food at... More

Ristorante Renato on William Street in Fredericksburg offers the warmth of a caring staff, professionally appointed menu with a reasonably priced menu.

A group of ladies had lunch here before visiting Kenmore and it was awesome. Everyone tried different dishes and everyone raved on how good it was. They do not have sweet tea but are happy to mix unsweet tea and lemonade (Arnold Palmer) and this group loved that. One dish that was ordered came out a different dish but the... More

We have eaten at Renato's many times over the past 20 years. The food was excellent, both my Pollo Mimosa and my husband's Gnocchi Di Mama.. The servers are extremely attentive and made sure our drinks were never empty.

Thank Susan S
