“Best of the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2009

I don't know what to say. Our friends suggested eating here and when we arrived there was really no place to park. We had reservations and were seated at a very small table. I was concerned because like many others have stated, it's a very small dinning room. But the service was great and the food was better then I have ever had before. We were in San Pedro waiting to take a cruise the next day. Now I'm planning a trip to the area just so I can eat at Raffaello's again. You will not be disappointed. We noticed as we were leaving they do have a banquet room, which would be great for weddings or anniversaries.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2009

We were in San Pedro last week - walking to a brew pub that we had heard about - and ran into one of the owners of Raffaello - Kelly Cutri - she suggested that we try her restaurant - and we were blown away! The food was outstanding - we were treated like royalty - each dish was served was absolutely top notch! We totally recommend this restaurant - but a word of caution - it gets really busy (as we found out 2 nights later) - but I can tell you that even if there is a wait - it's a culinary delight worth waiting for! Thanks Kelly !

“Stud place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2007

My friend owns this restaurant and he is a great Italian chef, i know from chef class. This is a great place with amazing service. The food tasted delicious and it is my favorite Italian place in California, and it isn't overpriced. What a relief. The atmosphere inside the restaurant makes you feel happy immediately before you even get your food. The waiters are friendly and the food is fabuloso. I am Italian and I know my food, this place is one of my favorite's. I love raffaello's ristorante and i recommend everybody to go.
