This place as really good reviews online. However, it does not score very high for me. Menu was dirty (food stuck inside it). It was stained and nasty. Service: This was good. They were friendly and attentive for the most part. Decor: Its dated and kinda dingy looking inside. Food: Well, there are some issues. They will give you a... More

Attended a concert in the area and checked around for a dining option ~ Raffaello's won. Incredibly busy for a Sunday night, that's a great sign. Full of locals, another great sign. Family owned/operated and employs family members, even better sign. To hear Italian spoken in an Italian restaurant, molto bene. They start you with obligatory bread and butter ALONG... More

Our family visited this wonderful restaurant because it was located close to our hotel and had great ratings. It was a wonderful choice. A few of ordered a house wine, which was poured from a bottle, not a box. We shared a few entries. They were all very good, but I'd have to say the peppers and bruschetta were amongst... More

I am not from the area, but a relative recommended the restaurant to me. I made reservations in advance to accommodate our party of 15. We ended up arriving an hour early (phone called ahead with the time change) and the table was ready and waiting for us. We all enjoyed the roasted peppers and warm bread. A salad came... More

What an amazing find this was. Spectacular food, service, and ambience. Could not have enjoyed a more wonderful dinner. We were celebrating a birthday and they made it very special. The egg plant Parmesan, chicken Parmesan, and veal Parmesan was to die for. The salmon salad was perfect. Our waiter was outstanding, and made everything very special. The prices were... More

My date and I weren't that hungry so we decided to split a salad and an entree. The Salmon salad (Insalata Al Salmone) was terrific and even a 1/2 portion each was plenty. Our shared entree - Pollo Alla Zia Teresa (Chicken breast sauteed in sherry wine, mushrooms, shrimp & herbs) - was done just right and included veggies and... More

Great little Italian restaurant with excellent food and reasonable prices. Go early because it fills up fast. We were referred by the folks at the Best Western on Gaffey street.
