We were introduce to the Rafele restaurant while on a Greenwich Village Food tour. This restaurant is authentic Naples Italian, from the fresh homemade food to the Italian owners and staff. We could have listened to them talk all day. We decided that we had to come back for dinner. They have a special "Chef's Table" that is close to the kitchen. You can see the extra care the chefs take in preparing everything from scratch. They also offer a "Chef's Tasting". It is a 4 course tasting that includes appetizers, pastas, entrees and desserts. Pierluigi Osanni, tommias and even Chef Raffaele came by between courses to talk to us about the food and make sure we wanted for nothing. You will definately need to come hungry because the food just keeps coming and each item will blow you away. The flavors are so pure and delightful. You haven't had true Italian food until you have had Rafele's. This is a MUST if you are in New York, even if it means making a special trip. You will not be disappointed.
