Great Food

Kind of an older looking little pizza spot, but food was fantastic. Pizza was huge with tons of topping. I had the Pasta Alla Raffaeles which was unique and tasted great. My only complaint was there were a lot of gnats flying around. Didn't really notice them while we were eating, but they... read more

My wife and I eat here regularly. The food is consistently good; the service is always good. I have tried numerous items on the menu and have not been disappointed with any order. My favorites: the grilled chicken sub; any of the calzones/strombolis; pasta alla Rafaelles. My least favorite: pizza. I must admit that many, many people like the pizza... More

My mom and I happened upon this place while returning from a trip, and we were both very impressed. The fact that the gluten free menu offers many homemade gluten free items like bread, cake, pasta, and pizza had me very impressed. Everything tasted fantastic and the price was very reasonable. It is so rare that I find excellent gluten... More

As long as I've lived here, I'd never eaten at Raffaele's. My husband ordered pizza and I ordered the pasta sampler. Both were very good, but the pizza was incredible. He got half pepperoni and half cheese. The crust was thin and full of flavor. The bread they brought out was some of the best I've had. I would definitely... More

Had a very good Gluten free pizza. Service was very good as well. When pulling in not sure what to expect due to Storefront. The food exceeded expectations. It was obvious seeing the volume of carry out business they have a strong local following. They have a full Gluten free menu of items. Much appreciated and not common in Italian... More

We have tried every pizzas place in a ten mile radius of our home and by far Raffaele's has the best pizza in town and their serving staff are really pleasant. Reasonable prices and service is great!
