Last night is was raining hard, one of those nights you want to stay in but we went to our favorite pizza place Raffaele's to have our plain pizza. To our disappointment the pizza was not good. Usually the whole pizza is gone before we leave, but half was left uneaten because it did not taste good. Any place can... More

Raffles is a colonial heights fixture , family run with a very low staff turnover. I have eaten everything on the menu most items are great some just good . The cooks like to come up with new variations on many dishes most not on the menu so you have to ask " what's new ?" Sometimes it'sa hit with... More

We had heard about this place having the best spaghetti and thought we would try it. It was not a restaurant I would go out of my way to visit again. The calzones were doughy and the fillings were cold. Very bland. We have had better calzones at the Crazy Tomato across the street. Maybe it used to be good... More

I have eaten here so many times I couldn't remember each visit, but do know that every time has been great. Have eaten almost everything on the menu. The staff is always great. Have taken business associates, and out of town family and they always want to go back when they come in town. Take out is always good and... More

Raffaele's is a favorite for my family and friends. The variety of pizza, pasta dishes, salads and sandwiches, makes it easy for everyone to order the perfect choice. Recently, I found I cannot have gluten, and Raffaele's also has gluten free pizza, pasta and rolls, etc. The taste of the food is always amazing (especially the gluten free options), and... More

Over all good place to eat for a quick meal for locals. I would rate the food as good to average but still would recommend for locals. If i didn't live in colonial heights, i probably wouldn't drive to eat there over its competitors. Overall is a good place. Just try to avoid the server with the blonde hair (a... More

The family that runs Raffael's has three restaurants in Kingsport. Giuseppe's is more of a full service restaurant than Raffael's, and Italian Village is a pizza place at the mall. But, Raffael's still has a good menu. Their food beats any of the chain Italian restaurants hands down. I particularly like their pizza for their great crust and sauce.

I ordered the eggplant parmigiana, my mother-in-law had pepperoni pizza,and my husband ordered the Italian sub.Of the three,he got the best meal. I have eaten eggplant parmigiana in many restaurants, but never before has it been served swimming in grease.It looked good when the waitress brought it,but once I tasted it, YUK! The breading was not done and was saturated... More
