Friday 6:30 did not have reservation made the day before. Out of filets. Waited 1 hour for salad. Not crowded no line I've cooked hamburgers thicker than the rib eyes. One was so full of fat my wife could not eat it. I've eaten at Raffaele's 5 or 6 times before and been generally pleased but I will not be back.

The best italian food in town. And the best part is that if there is something on the menu that you want changed, they don't mind a bit fixing it your way. The service is always great, the food even better. And the cook who also owns the place, likes to come around to find out what you thought of your meal. It's relaxing, laid back atmosphere. Somewhere you can go with friends or that love of your life. So I will continue to eat there and you should try it too.

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"
