Renallo's is the best place to go for fine dining in Ankeny. If you have something to celebrate, this place has the ambiance. The menu is complex and the food is excellent. Service is always attentive and timely.

We called for reservations and received a confirmation call. The restaurant was full. The menu is simple but the food was quite good. The calamari was tender and tasty. The Ahi tuna was tasty. Overall it was a wonderful experience.

Plenty of empty tables; still waited 30 minutes to be seated. The hostess seemed not to know what was going on with the (empty) tables. We were seated in an empty corner and the waitress forgot about us - we didn't even get our drinks...More
