“Walk through the door and you are in Italy,” their regulars reportedly say. The folks behind Rafele pride themselves on authentic rustic fare from central to southern Italy, from Tuscany to Sicily, such as house made pasta and wood oven pizza. Sourcing from local farmers' markets provides Rafele with the freshest possible ingredients while also giving back to the community. A rosemary and lavender garden in their outdoor cafe creates the feeling of dining in Italy. Rafele also offers an extensive wine list, as well as one of the best cheesecakes in the City.
