I ate here a few years ago several times - the calzone was amazing, fresh, and included ricotta and was heavy on the things I had asked for. This last time, though, there was a child waiting on the tables, a girl of about 12, and a young boy bussing tables! The calzone had almost nothing in it, no ricotta... More

Buy one get one pizza is a good deal. Hamburgers are average. Greek salad is good and generous. Old building but it does seem clean and well maintained.

It was late at night and they were closing up! WOW what amazing food! These guys are the real deal cooked with love into in a local dive. I wish I lived down the street. Actually, no strike that... I'd get FAT! Eat here, not the other place you are thinking of going, and that's coming from a professional traveler.

There isn't much to choose in Jasper, but Rafael's is pretty good. We go there often. Very consistent. Recommend it highly.

I love the cheese steak, spagetti and several other dishes. I have not tried the pizza but once and it was average. Their breadstick and marinara is to die for LOL but really enjoyed it.

Rafael's is a favorite lunch spot for locals, and typically never disappoints. Their menu somewhat deviates from Italian, but it's all generally good. Of the Italian dishes, their pizzas and calzones are the best...some of the others are so-so. Their Greek salads are great as well as their quesadillas! Their burgers and sandwiches are also quite tasty! Customer service is... More

Just off the square, Rafael's doesn't look like much on the outside but has really good, basic Italian at very reasonable prices. The staff is friendly enough, especially if you're a local. Nice, small town feel. Will go back.

Rather informal but the food was quite tasty. Staff was slammed that night due to an unexpected event. Still they kept the food coming and kept their composure.
