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. My wife and I have been there three times and are very cautious... More

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.

I've been here several times. All have been in a party arena, not dining as a couple etc. I have gotten shrimp alfredo, steak and a pasta dish of some kind. Most were pretty good except the steak was pretty bad. The service has been good. The cost is just ok.

Pleasant and quiet atmosphere with attentive waiters. Lots of old world charm. Appetizers were excellent and the main courses were good as well, a good value for the money.

Went here with wife and some friends. The atmosphere was very good and in a good location. My wife and I both had the chicken marsala. The chicken and noodles were very bland with hardly any seasoning, and the sauce tasted like it was out of a jar from the grocery store. This was our second time here, and about... More
