Stick to What made you great. – I used to order pizza from this place all the time. It was just the greatest. I been in the new place twice. The building is much larger and fancier. They have a huge menu compaired to the old days. I had spaghetti and hade there pizza too. The pizza was good as always but I was not impressed with the spaghetti. The sauce needed more spices.
I miss the old menu – Armondo's was the only Italian restaurant I would go to. Their specialty dishes like Chicken Armondo, Chicken Picatta, and Salmon Ravioli could be had only there. Now it is no better than any other Italian restaurant.
Not worth another visit until they bring back some of the old favorites.
love the new menu – They have a great new menu. all the pizza's are so fresh and unique. I also love the Tuscan white been soup. Quick and friendly service.
AMAZING – The new menu gives you such a fresh taste that it is a must try AGAIN. It is amazing, everything from sitting at that table to getting our left-overs boxed up was great.The service was first rate. We even had Armondo himself at our table telling us about the menu. would totally recommend it to everyone, and can 't wait to see what the new seasons will bring. going back soon.

New menu is wonderful – Had dinner there last night. While we miss some of our old favorites, the new menu will bring us there more often. Try either chicken entre. Both are wonderful. Also the broschetta. You can create your own breschetta mix from a selection of several.
We understand the ingredients are primarily local which is a plus to us. There are many Italian food places in the area but this choice is a good one.
Great Family Owned Restaurant – Armondo's uses only the freshest and best ingredients, and the quality of their food shows it. This is local family run restaurant with great food and great service. The bar has an awesome happy hour, make sure to ask for the menu! And the best part for Sounders fans is flat screen TV's showing the games!
Best of Everything! – Great place, great food, you can't go wrong at Armondo's! Good for business meetings, large of small. There is something for each and everyone in the family!
Best Italian in Renton – We went to dinner recently at Armondo's and had a wonderful evening. Our server Dana was pleasant, informative and very prompt with her service. They gave us bread with olive oil & balsomic to start with, what a nice touch. The server suggested their calamari, how wonderful it was, it was a steak instead of rings. It came with 3 sauces that went great with it. I had the eggplant, my husband had the lamb shank. Both dishes we mouth watering. The lamb was so tender it just fell off of the bone served with a wonderful flavoral sauce and yukon potaoes. For dessert we had tiramisu, which was made there at the restaurnat and you could tell, it was so fresh and tastey. We both would highly recommend this restaurant. We dine out alot and found everthing to be of high quality from the olive oil to the lamb shank including the staff. Even the manager (sherrie) stopped by the table to see how our evening was.
They just plain miss,,, – From the bogus salads, to the pile of slop lasagna, (with what may have been cheddar cheese on top?) to the tomato sauce that has canned mushrooms and bell peppers in it, to the snooty service, to the classless dining room, they just miss. I for some reason, have been there 3 times for nothing more than the lack of anywhere else to go in Renton,, but this was the last time for sure. Reminds me of olive garden. I'm saddened to read the good reviews because I guess my neighbors in Renton just don't know what good Italian food is, or more importantly,, means. The cheap pomace garbage olive oil they gave me to dip my bread in was simply an insult and our server told us they had just switched to "cheaper, lower quality oil" because of high food cost? What? Come on Armondo, where's the love bro?
Best Italian restaurant in Renton, excellent and ample food, moderate prices – The restaurant has long held the title of best Italian restaurant in Renton, and it is no wonder. The food is excellent and is provided in such quantity that customers frequently ask for a doggie box to take the remainder of dinner home with them. Prices are also noticably moderate. This place is worthy of repeat visits.
