Renata's Caffe Italiano
This wonderful Italian cafe serves delicious pasta and seafood dishes and the best garlic bread in Orange County . Its spicy sausage and meatballs are scrumptious. The owners offer a good wine list and fast and friendly service. This is the perfect spot for a leisurely lunch over a bottle of Chianti and a little romantic cuddling. If you go alone, settle into a quiet corner and turn some pages on the book you have been meaning to read for ages.
For a small restaurant in the community of Orange, I thought Renata's was fine. However, I wouldn't recommend that patrons let the owner know if there is anything they don't like about the food. On my first and only visit there during Thanksgiving week, I made the mistake of telling one of the owners that while I liked the angel hair pasta, I thought the chicken picatta was a bit chewy. Wow! You would have thought I started World War III. He told me it was impossible for me to not like his picatta....why, everyone else did! He then proceeded to pull out a dusty framed picture from somewhere of someone (not a food critic), who had been quoted in the local paper once upon a time as having thought his chicken picatta was to die for. He shoved the picture under my face to tell me that I couldn't possibly have not liked his chicken picatta when this person and everyone else did! So as to not cause a scene, I just smiled, nodded, and said nothing. Soon after, I paid my bill and made a mental note to never return to Renata's.
