Born in Jundiaí, Brazil, Reginaldo started his career with Campo Grande. The club was associated with Pedrinho VRP, which helped numbers of Brazilian footballers transferred to Italy. Reginaldo began his professional career with Treviso F.B.C. in 2001, and helped the club win promotion from the third-tier Serie C1 league to the top-flight Serie A championship (also due to Caso Genoa, Torino and Perugia financial difficulty) . In 2005, Serie A club Udinese signed him outright (cash plus Dino Fava) and loaned Reginaldo back to Veneto.
Followed by the relegation at the end of 2005–06 Serie A season, Reginaldo moved to Serie A club ACF Fiorentina from Udinese for €1 million. He played 27 games and scored six goals for Fiorentina during the 2006–07 Serie A season, after which he moved to league rivals Parma F.C., signing a 5-year contract.
Reginaldo was signed by Parma for €4.5 million. He was one of the forward of the team along with Igor Budan, Cristiano Lucarelli and Bernardo Corradi. Reginaldo started most of the game, and Corradi was the second. That season Parma used 4–3–3 or 4–5–1 formation, and Budan was the topscorer of 7 goals. Among the 4 goals were played along with Reginaldo.
Parma were relegated at the end of the 2007–08 Serie A season, but Reginaldo stayed with the club for the 2008–09 Serie B season. Having helped Parma win promotion for the 2009–10 Serie A, he moved to Serie A rivals A.C. Siena, signing a contract on 27 June 2009 in a co-ownership deal.
In June 2009 Siena signed Reginaldo from Parma in co-ownership deal for €2.5 million and Francesco Parravicini for €2.5 million. While Parma got Manuel Coppola for €3 million and Daniele Galloppa in co-ownership deal for €5M. Reginaldo followed the team relegated to 2010–11 Serie B.
Under Antonio Conte, Reginaldo scored 7 goals and won promotion back to Serie A. The co-ownership also terminated as part of Galloppa's deal. Parma got the full card of Galloppa for pre-agreed €5M, while Siena got Reginaldo for pre-agreed €2.5M as well as Ângelo for €2.5M.
