We were in Spartanburg for my high school reunion and joined several friends for dinner at Renato’s. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu items. Our meal was above average. A great place to go for dinner after Jazz on the Square.

Ate at the bar which was fun because the bartender (Amanda) was fun and attentive. My wife had the Renato’s wedge which was amazing (what little she let me try). I had the cap rear which was a tad too salty but the tomatoes were...More
