This place is out of business. When Raffaeles was open they were just ok. His brother in Southern Pines has a Resturant called Vito's. Try this place as it is in business and like a few miles away. Great Italian food

Pizza and Italian cuisine. Not my favorite. The food is okay, pizza is average. Some folks really like it, but maybe because it is inexpensive.

It is the original Italian restaurant in the Pinehurst-Southen Pines area. The owner, Raffaele, has set the standard for Italian restaurants here for the last 25 years, as has his brothers who own award winning pizza restaurants, i.e. "Vito's"
