Simply the best authentic east coast style pizza 🍕 around and especially in Petaluma. Only thing I noticed is the pizza is the best when Rafy’s in the house. When he’s not there the quality drops off a tad this has been my experience on...a couple occasions but still the best. I always ask for a little extra sauce because the sauce is delicious!More

Used a coupon for a large two topping pizza for $20. They advertise as New York style pizza, and it is close. We had sausage and black olive with pesto topping. I like it greasy and this is how it came out. The dough could...be rolled a little thinner for my taste, as well as being a little more crispy. Still, along with New York Pizza downtown, the two best places in town. Commendable craft beer on draft - Fort Point Kolsch and Bear Republic Hazy IPA. Check it out - good service and seating areas.More

I appreciate Rafy's Vegan Cheese Pizza SO MUCH! Cannot find this anywhere in Petaluma! So glad to live right next door. Vegan pizza: I get EXTRA CHEESE and sometimes even add (shhh...) anchovy to it. I ask them to drizzle some extra olive oil on...top to make it more cheeezzy. Sooooooooo delicious!More

Being A vegetarian with vegan leanings when possible, pizza is not one of those foods I generally seek out because it is hard pressed to find a good cheese-less pizza. This unassuming restaurant located in the Whole Foods Market shopping center is clean with comfortable...tables and a wide selection of pizzas, salads, and a few non-pizza entrees. This no frills restaurant with paper napkins, simple flatware and china is getting high marks from me. Raffy the owner waited on my party of three adults and the pride in his offering with confidence excellent service and food emanated from him. We ordered a vegetarian /vegan combination pizza and he agreed to sub a couple of the toppings without extra charge. The other pizza was a traditional sausage and cheese topping with the addition of olives and sausage. The biggest surprise was the crust. The pizza had a perfectly cooked crisp thin crust that was loaded with the toppings. Absolutely delicious; each of them. I even ate the crusts w which generally are soft and doughy at other pizza restaurants, m nit there these crusts were light and crispy like a cracker. Draft, bottled beers and soft drinks available. Ample parking in the parking lot. My only criticism is that the pizza maker who is mesmerizing to watch toss and stretch the dough should be wearing food service vinyl gloves when distributing the toppings on the pizzas and not using his bare fingers.More

We stopped in to try Rafy’s Pizza, and we were not disappointed. My vegan pizza with vegan cheese was so good. It was perfect. Hubby enjoyed his pizza, but would add other ingredients next time to change it up. Rafy was so nice and personable....We will be back again.More

Very good pizza. I ordered a 12-inch pizza with Kalamata olives. Yes, they have Kalamata olives. That's awesome. Service was fast and Ultra friendly. Restaurant is clean and bright. Bathroom is even clean.

I had tried Hectors, Old Chicago, Round Table, Mary's, and 4 or 5 others. I didn't want gooey, thick crust stuffed with processed "cheese," pesto-laden, "Italian" style pies, square "Sicilian" versions, or half-baked ham and pineapple "buy 3, get 2 free" types. I wanted a...bare-bones, THIN crusted, warm, NEW YORK style pizza. That's what I got. The large costs $18 and I couldn't find any coupons; pizzas are the most heavily-couponed food on earth. It was delivered in 30 minutes as promised, and it was cheese, tomato sauce on a THIN, crisp, tasty crust. PERIOD.More
