“Perfect everytime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Best restaurant in Spartanburg, hands down. Food is always fresh and good. Service is great. Nice, quaint atmosphere. I don't understand why people arent lined up out the door. We know we can always get a great meal when we eat here. You will not be sorry.

“One of the Best Italian Restaurants Anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We have been going to Renato's since he opened and I have never had anything but a wonderful experience. Everything is always top notch.Years ago, I entertained quite a few Italian suppliers the company that I worked for and they often commented that his food was as good as you can find in the finest restaurants in Italy. If you are a lover of real Italian cuisine, you will not be disappointed. His seafood is always excellent. Renato's had been serving the same quality food for over 20 years and nothing has changed during that time.

If you expect spaghetti and meatballs or pizza, this is not the place for you.

Renato's food is always excellent! Fresh seafood and nightly specials. It's almost like being in Italy for dinner. Our favorite!

“Real Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Great service, great food at reasonable prices. I am Italian and was raised by an Italian grandmother, so I am hard to please. This place is the real deal.

“We used to love this place...not recently”

Not sure what has changed, but the overall quality and flavors have just fallen. Not likely to come back or recommend.
