It was 6:30 on a Friday night. The wait was too long at a nearby Italian favorite, so we tried Raffaele's. We stepped inside, and the place was clean and attractive, and slightly upscale. But we were the only ones there! Really strange. Even stranger,...More

Recently had my favorite veal dish, saltimbaca at Raffaeli's. It was fork tender with a perfect blend of fresh ingredients - truly the best I've ever had! For me, the test of a great Italian restaurant is a plain plate of pasta with tomato sauce....More
