This place is out of business. When Raffaeles was open they were just ok. His brother in Southern Pines has a Resturant called Vito's. Try this place as it is in business and like a few miles away. Great Italian food

Pizza and Italian cuisine. Not my favorite. The food is okay, pizza is average. Some folks really like it, but maybe because it is inexpensive.

I and my wife found raffaeles by accident, and are very happy we did. This place is a small restaurant with a small bar inside. They have the best most authentic Italian food we have come across. Plan to spend some time here as the food is prepared per order.( we like this ) This gives you a chance to... More

We used to like this place but service and quality have gone far downhill! Last two times we went food was lukewarm, not good, canned tasting. AND we got sick. Had to take it completely off or list of places to eat and we eat out a lot.

Traditional old school Italian. By far some of the best Italian food outside of Italy. It's simply done right.

The best italian food in town. And the best part is that if there is something on the menu that you want changed, they don't mind a bit fixing it your way. The service is always great, the food even better. And the cook who also owns the place, likes to come around to find out what you thought of... More

It is the original Italian restaurant in the Pinehurst-Southen Pines area. The owner, Raffaele, has set the standard for Italian restaurants here for the last 25 years, as has his brothers who own award winning pizza restaurants, i.e. "Vito's"
