My husband and I enjoy this little Italian Café on the corner of Chapman and Grand in Orange. Ben offers outstanding service. Sorry, but the canolli is not very good. Possibly another dessert would have been better for us.Response from the ownerHello folks,Thank you for coming, it’s my pleasure you like the food.

The restaurant's intimate setting provides a perfect perch #fore epic people-watching as you savor classic dishes.As a double amputee and cancer patient, I've found Renata's to be more than just a restaurant - it's an extension of family. The Staff goes above and beyond to accommodate my needs & displays their kindness. Testament to the true spirit of this establishment. Pricing is actually below what they should be charging!Garlic bread has most wonderful butter garlic 🧄 spread then toasted...must have imho. They even recognize my voice during takeout orders, a touch that speaks volumes about their care.The food itself is also testament to culinary passion. The veal dishes showcase the chef's expertise, always tender and flavorful. But the true star, in my opinion, is the elegant & colorful Spumoni Egg 🥚 dessert. Presentation is artistic 🎨!This unique and delightful treat is the perfect, sweet capstone to any meal at Renata's.If you're seeking a large portion, multiple course, delicious Italian meal, excellent prices, a window into Orange's history, and a heartwarming sense of community, look no further than Renata's Cafe Italiano."Highly RecommendbSafebHappybWell 🤙AdamAdam ★★★★★ Both times the same man has been more than helpful, friendly, cheerful etc. It makes a difference when the people running the joint are actually proud of it. The food is great even if the sauce is a little simple, and we will be back very soon.Kyle StrodtbeckKyle Strodtbeck ★★★★★ Cozy Italian bistro with excellent dishes, fresh ingredients, and wonderful staff! The team made us feel special and were attentive throughout the visit. I had the veal Parmesan and it was cooked to perfection. I also loved the minestrone soup!
