We decided to check out Rafele on our recent trip across the US east cost, because of its glowing Tripadvisor reviews. While it might not be a typical 'destination' restaurant, it is a great neighborhood restaurant in the West Village. The ambiance is pleasant and the service is excellent. We absolutely loved the swordfish, calamari and shrimp grill. The only downer, was the Pasta Bolognese, which could've had more flavour.
Even the staff did a great job of explaining the wine menu - we got a complementary glass of wine on arrival. This place is definitely worth a visit!
