"We ate here almost two years ago when visiting NYC. Finally, we returned and we booked again. It is on our "do-not-miss" list. In particular, the octopus salad starter was the best we've ever had. A lovely grilled flavor and more octopus than we expected. Since we were sharing, that was a great surprise. I also found the fried artichokes wonderful and the grilled branzino seemed straight from Italy."

"Rafele's was one of the highlights of our recent trip to New York. I had first been introduced to this restaurant during a food tour. Came back for the chef's tasting menu. Fun experience, great food and super value. The wait staff was great and the food is so tasty! It also is quite a bit of food so great value for the money!"

"Our first time here. We don't live in the neighborhood but we came with out of town friends who were staying in the W Village. The good reviews on Opentable were right - good authentic Italian food but with a modern flair. It was very crowded with a cool good looking clientele. We liked our food and the service was friendly. The recommended risotto on the special menu was the only disappointment - it was undercooked, very salty and came to the table slightly warm not hot. Our server was attentive and friendly but I decided not to send the dish back because the room was packed and we decided to move onto dessert."

"You have to be good to survive in NYC. This place exceeds good. The cauliflower salad (warm) was out of this world. I also ordered the shrimp, clams, seafood over linguini. OMG was this awesome. It gets busy quickly. We went on a Saturday for a 5:30 reservation. By 6pm it was packed."

"A real Italian trattoria. Not fancy, but rather bustling! Lots of chatter, but you can hear your own conversation. Starts off with good focaccia and eggplant Tapenade. Very good. Wines were also good, but a bit pricy and they were 3- 4oz glasses and not a drop more. Caprese mozzarella was good, with sundried Tomato and spicy peppers. Two pastas were excellent. One was a lamb ragout and the other mushrooms with truffle oil. Double espresso was great, but again really small . Ricotta cheese Cake was tasty but too smooth and sweet, like American cheesecake, for me. We'll be back. Service was good. It's far from 'fine dining,' but a really good experience."

"We sat quite far from the entrance but had to deal with a chilling breeze every time the door opened and closed which really ruined our dinner."

"We had booked this restaurant ahead of our trip to NYC as we saw greta reviews. Its was our last night, a Saturday night, and it was great. Great welcome. Gorgeous food. The arancini were delicious.
The only bad comments I have were that they seemed to have the air con on and its was -2 outside so I was cold.
I ordered the gorgonzola, truffle and mushroom pizza which was delcious but really really rich. It meant I couldn't finish it...I LOVE truffle oil but there was just a bit too much on it.

"Pleasant atmosphere, good service. Didn't think meatballs were as good as others do. Found fish stew to be good, but would prefer a lighter broth.
All four of us enjoyed r experience and would return. Not overly expensive at $105 per couple.

"We ordered the octopus appetizer to share--it was grilled nicely and had a nice char. They also serve you foccacia with eggplant- very tasty! I had the parpardelle pasta with mushrooms- al dente and great mushroom flavor along with a healthy heaping of roasted mushrooms. My godmother ordered the fish of the day special which was topped with artichokes and she really enjoyed it. Would come here again."
