"My wife and I ate here whilst on vacation and it was a highlight of the trip.
The food was fantastic, the service impeccable and the pricing thoroughly reasonable.
We would return again in a heartbeat and would happily recommended to everybody.

"Many people have recommended Rafele's. Finally I went on a Saturday night, and my expectations were exceeded. The food was quite good. My wife and I shared three appetizers and one entree. The pulpo was very nicely spiced and perfectly grilled. The caprese good, but nothing special. The unexpected treat was the artichoke hearts: crispy, tender and flavorful. They were served in a paper lined basket which made them difficult to spear and to share, and there were too few of them. Best was the pasta ragu with lamb in a tomato based sauce. The sauce was rich and flavorful and the lamb tender. The broad pasta was cooked perfectly to my taste (al dente) but a bit underdone for my wife. Our vodka martini's were perfect, but a bit small for the price. Wine by the glass was excellent, but also pricey (probably due to our selection). The restaurant is tight with lots of small, two-person tables packed in. Nevertheless, the staff negotiated the small space quickly and gracefully. Service was very attentive and not intrusive. Overall, a great experience. I plan to return on a less busy weekday evening."

"I so wished I enjoyed Rafele more than I did. We were not offered the specials because they came out about a half hour after we were sat at 5:30, which was too bad since there were things on there that we would have chosen. I had the fish stew which was ok. I wish the broth had more flavor than it did. I enjoyed the presentation of it (baked in a bread bowl with bread covering the top). Dessert was a high note-the light and delicious cheesecake. Ambiance was great. Just wish we were more impressed with the food."

"We needed a place to bring business clients and also where we could enjoy a really good meal as we all love to eat. No one among us had been to Rafele before this and we all found it wonderful. The service was attentive, the food outstanding, the atmosphere so very enjoyable. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for fine food and a lovely place to dine."

"There are way better Italian places in the village that you could go to at a similar price point. The food was pretty average for the price and the lighting and ambiance isn't that great. Wouldn't recommend to a friend, but could be an okay to take a big group because it's pretty spacious."

"took 3 customers for lunch, each ordered something different and everything was great. The cauliflower with currents and pine nuts appetizer was amazing and so was the tiramisu we split for dessert."
