About

Rena's Story


The passion for creating Rena’s was both a personal and a professional endeavor.

Personally, this restaurant is a way to say thank you and honor my wife, Rena. The past 25 years in the restaurant industry has been an incredible journey; demanding but always rewarding. Rena has stood by my side every step of the way, always willing to lend an ear or lend a hand. She is my biggest supporter, and I could think of nothing better than to design a restaurant inspired by our Italian heritage, her fierce spirit, and her deep love of family.

Professionally, I wanted to create a dining experience for our guests that showcases the passion we have for food. From traditional Italian fare to family favorites passed down over generations, our menu appeals to all palates. Enjoy the comfort of a warm neighborhood meeting place that accommodates everything from an evening with friends and family to dignified events and everything in between. The dinner table has always been a symbol of many things: the place where we come together, celebrate important milestones, and share experiences. We look forward to seeing you at our dinner table.

OUR FOOD

Meat. Seafood. Pasta.

The perfect meal begins with quality meats and responsibly sourced seafood, hand cut in house, accompanied by fresh sides, all prepared with flavor. We compose this flavor by using family inspired sauces and marinades. Our passion for flavor extends throughout our menu and is perfected using the best techniques and equipment; a wood burning grill that adds a hint of Oak & Pecan to every dish or a restored vintage Berkel slicer used to cut the meats and cheeses featured on our Tagli Misti.

All our pastas and raviolis are made daily by hand. The process and our devotion to authenticity allows us to serve you the freshest pasta, tossed in the freshest sauces, every day. Once you walk into our lobby you are directly in front of our pasta room, where you can witness the magic taking place. Continue to our open kitchen and see the flames of the wood burning grill, steam off freshly cooked pasta, and watch as we create your favorite dishes.
