Tucked behind Pizza Masters, Renatos offers classic, old school, North Jersey Italian. The seafood fra diablo and pork osso bucco were both Delicious. The clams oreganato were very good too. A reasonably priced good italian dinner, for sure.

One of the restaurants that I will always go back. The service as well as the food was amazing! Price wise is affordable to the area that is located. Great place for pasta and pizzas.

Renatos is our favorite restaurant in The Heights. Besides the consistently great food, the staff always makes you feel welcome especially the maitre d'. Not a tourist place. Just a solid neighborhood restaurant with a nice atmosphere and excellent food!

In the area is for sure the best Italian restaurant. Pizzas are very good, the swordfish really tasty and digestible. Squids are cruncy and fresh.

What a nice find. We had the mushroom bisque and the escarole bean soup. And the Verdure and Ai Carciofi pizzas. Each dish was delicious, and the smiling friendly service helped in enhancing the experience. And the limoncello cake was so yummy.

We came here for their Pizzas. We tried the BBQ chicken and the all meat pizza...both were the best pizzas I have had in a long long time. The service was quite average or maybe the waitress was in a bad mood. Their Spicy waffle...More

So many great dishes done to perfection, but my go to is the rigatoni with vodka sauce, and I have them throw some fresh mozz on top too. They make decent drinks and the bill could get high if you start adding apps, but everything...More
