If you or your young ones feel like taking a little break from eating Vietnamese food, but do not want to wander too far from Little Saigon, then stop by Renato for an Italian treat. This family run Italian restaurant in the heart of Little Saigon is known for its very good pizzas, decent pastas and a generous selection of wine.
The restaurant has both an airy patio section and more private inside section. The atmosphere is relaxed, family friendly. The service is attentive.

Renato's Italian dishes are wonderful. Having come here for years, it was good to see that the patriarch of the family has given reign to his children. The recipes are thus handed down to the ones that will continue. So it is that tonight we decided to have our dining experience at Renato's. Everyone we saw greeted us a warm welcome and we sat in the dining room facing a large screen TV that looped beautiful visions of Northern Italy. This dining room is so quaint and the wall depicts a watery scene of the Amalfie coast where fishermen still catch the fish of the day. The food here is unforgettable. You just want to come back and experience it again and again. I had the Lasagna pasta. A dish so savory and bountiful of layers of pasta, cheese, fillings of spinach mixed beef and home made sausage. The Lasagna comes piping hot out of the oven with a slice of mozzarella cheese melted on top and the meat sauce makes it appear as if the pasta floated on the tomatoe goodness. Our Pizza was equally outstanding with layers of cheese on top of a delightful marinara sauce and topped throughout with pieces of their homemade plumpy meatballs. The crust is thick on the edges and beautifully thin towards the middle. This is the way pizzas are made so you can pick it up, fold it, and ease a bite into the corner of the melted cheese. The service was second to none by Juan Carlos and crew, and the food is so yummy. A family affair and so happy that they kept their family recipes.

I enjoy their pasta, pizza and seafood. The service is exceptional. The attention to authentic Italian food is fantastic. You can enjoy a meal here and actually hear each others conversation.

This is a wonderful find. It's a small family owned restaurant with all in house made pasta, sausage, breads and desserts. We had a large party at our home and decided to have Renato's cater it. We spoke with son Renato (very handsome young man) and he led us through some fantastic choices. We chose their Gourmet Italian Feast, and it was, their Salmon Mediterraneo was to die for. However everyone raved about the food and the stuffed mushrooms with home made sausage disappeared. We have eaten at the restaurant several times and all the servers are a delight. The wine list is very extensive. Renato's is Fantastic and a must if you like Italian food.
