The service was terrible - extremely slow! Food not good either. Wasn't given a salad with my entree.

First visit and staff made a great impression. The old world elegance makes the meal so much more pleasant. The calamari appetizer was the best I've tried anywhere. The wine selection was excellent. The meal was thoughtfully prepared and I'm looking forward to going back.

Very busy restaurant. It is bigger than it looks from the street. The house salad is nothing special but the entrees are great. Pretty inside.

Just went for dinner twice this month at Renato's. It has such a variety to choose from, great flavors, perfect wine choices and excellent service.

It was Veteran's Day and they offered a free entree to any Vet. so , we went and had a lovely time in a small, but romantic restaurant. The lemon drop martini's were good and comparable to Ruth Chris'. The veal dishes, we both ordered different were excellent, priced and portioned well. the service was very good too. I would...

Having lived in New York for a long time, this reminds us of some of the excellent old Italian restaurants that used to dot Greenwich Village. Fortunately for us, we happened upon this in a visit to Fredericksburg. The appearance is wonderful and comfortable - proper table cloths, soft lighting, opera or Sinatra playing softly in the background, old paintings... More

We held a family dinner, on a wedding weekend, for about 20 people. We used one of their private rooms. We were very comfortable, the staff and service were excellent, and the food did not disappoint. Generally, with a group that large, you get a complaint or two. Not this time. everyone loved their meal.

Our son just moved to Fredericksburg and so we had to come here, since his name is also Renato. Had a great dinner. Wine, beer, antipasto, Clams with linguini, Shrimp Napoli, Chicken with asparagus, the BREAD, salads, and yes, the tiramisu were ALL so delicious! Cute atmosphere inside as well as some great italian music playing in the background. Restaurant... More

Renato's was highly recommended by friends who live nearby. The place was not crowded, so our problems were even more curious.We all ordered the same lunch and even made a joke about it, how that made for an easy order. After an absurdly long wait, three out of four of us got the wrong meal. Something I promise none of... More
