The food was excellent as was the atmosphere. They were great with our 8 year old too. The pizza he had was delish!

It was highly recommended by others. Unfortunately, we were surprisingly disappointed by the lack of flavor. The pasta was just flat, the meat had no seasoning whatsoever, desserts tasted like week old boxed supermarket cheap dessert. We were at the Palace for 1 week. This...place was without a doubt the worse of all, when it comes to taste.The service was excellent and friendly. The location is nice and tidy.More

We were lucky to have a booking for this restaurant so did not have to wait in the long line, the buffet restaurants on the complex serve nicer pizza and pasta, the food was very poor and tasteless. I would not recommend.

We were not able to make a reservation ahead, so we waited in line for 1 hour and 50 minutes! Then, when we got our food, it was not near what we expected...very bland. Would not recommend it.

I love Italian food and this unfortunately was the worst I've had. The pasta and seafood dish I had was uneatable - unopened shellfish served and then pieced of shells throughout! The sauce was also terrible. We also had pizza which was very undercooked and...even the kids would not eat it. Disappointing food and service took a long time.More

It took three attempts to get a table here, and then only by going early due to the rain. However it was worth it for the quality of the food and a decent wine. My only problem was that the main course, veal, was swimming...in an excess of oil. Overall worth a visit.More

We travel extensively & the service level received by Maylin this evening @ Chef Raffaele restaurant was one of the best experiences we've had. Very attentive & truly gifted @ her job. I hope the management recognize her contributions to the resort. Maylin exemplifies the...service level that few can achieve & does it naturally. The meal was also delicious which rounded out this memorable experience. To guests of the Palladium & Royal Suites resorts, make sure to try this restaurant & ask for Maylin, you won't be disappointed.More

The Chef Raffaele Resto is one of many restaurants of the Palladium resort. It was a great romantic vibe. The menu can be viewed on the Palladium app. ahead or time. The resto. is situated in the Punta Cana section of the resort. Popular resto....Shares a common classy lobby with the famous La Parrilla steakhouse. It might be a good idea to make a reservation as soon as the resto opens at 18h. Off the menu: the crema de tomate: tomonato soup was delicious Verify the portion of the raviolis ahead with the waiter as this is usually served as a small portion. The risotto de camarones or the risotto de champinones ( shrimp risotto or mushroom risotto ) were delicious.More

We tried Chef Raffaele for dinner one night during our trip. The salad bar was great, but the menu was written mostly in other languages and I did not like the pasta or the sauce, my husband did not like his meal either. This was...one of our least favorite places to eat on our trip.More
