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

Raffaele's is our favorite place for Pizza. We where away for three weeks and had to stop by to have pizza before going home.

We absolutely love Raffael's!!!! Their pizza is the best in the Tri-Cities! As a matter of fact, all their dishes are wonderful! We have been going their since they opened and the service and food just keep getting better. They have a to die for grilled chicken salad, which I have to get on occasion to balance out all those...

We went to our favorite Pizza place Raffaele's. While there we told our server about our experience with Italian Village at the Fort Henry Mall of getting some pretty bad pizza. We have always gotten great pizza at Raffaele's and this time was excellent also. To our surprise the server gave us desert at no charge because of our experiences... More

Ate here with a colleague because I need GF food (hard to find in small towns) and them seemed to have a good menu online. Found them to be very good. Had a GF pasta and chicken dish, with a GF side roll and GF garlic cheese bread. All very good and my colleague enjoyed her Marsala. Will definitely eat... More

I ordered stuffed shells- terrible! Obviously microwaved, tough pasta, nasty canned sauce. My daughter ordered calzone with "steak". It was like they cleaned the grill and put it in her calzone. We couldn't eat our food. My other daughter did order a salad and the dressing was good. Other than that, very disappointed!

We like this place for pizza. Their pizza is like the pizza I use to eat in New York City. If we cannot go to Raffael's for Pizza then we do without. Nothing around this area comes close.

The Pasta Alla Raffaele's is really good, as is the thin-crust pizza. Sometimes the staff isn't very friendly. I've only had one bad experience here, and that was when I found a hair in my calzone. That was a few years ago. It really is a good place to eat though.

One of three restaurants in Kingsport owned by the same family. Each is distinctively different. But all are exceptional. This one is the middle range of the three. Great dinners, sandwiches, salads, bread or pizza. One of our favorites.
