Food at Raffaelo was delicious! I had homemade pasta with pumpkin and gorgonzola cheese sauce and my husband had a pizza. Both very tasty and pizza had a nice crust. Red wine (house wine and merlot) were not good; both tasted as bottles were open for a few days!

We ate here a number of times over our month long stay in Donauworth. Food was very enjoyable and plenty of it. Located in the town centre it is easily accessed by foot. Can get very busy. Thanks again Johnny for the bottle of red!

Had dinner sitting out on the patio and it was a lovely evening. Very helpful staff gave us a menu in English and were very friendly. Great pasta dishes and good wine all for 27 euros, so great value.

The food wasn't great, but it was t bad either. We did all finish our meals. There was a lot of choice on the menu too. I have to say the price was good; it was probably the cheapest restaurant we'd been to all holiday. The main problem was the wait time. It took about an hour or so for... More

I am shocked to come to tripadvisor and find this is the highest rated restaurant in Donauworth, is this because there isn't a lot of choice or the general quality is poor? The place was heaving so it took a while to get served then longer to get fed. It wasn't worth the wait; awful, mushy, foul tasting pasta. I... More

Raffaelo is a good place to eat and drink. The waiting time is pretty long but there is a wide array of beer types to choose from.

As I am a frequent visitor in Italy and speak Italian, it is natural, that I prefer Italian cooking when there is no special local restaurant. This one is not bad, but also nothing special - pasta con frutti di mare contained some not opened mussels, which is not a good sign; also beer was not fresh.

Went there in the afternoon, it's a very nice place by the lake. It was sunny so was good to sit outside and enjoy a good salad in a pizza bread plate, by the way a delicious bread. Very friendly service, several dessert options, drinks, tee selection.

The restaurant is located perfectly for a break walking around the city or hiding from the rain. The service and pasta were excellent, as was dessert, the one disappointment was the 2.5€ charge for a glass of water, almost as much as a draft beer... Overall a good place for a good meal.
