Outstanding food & serviceFrom the moment we entered until we left after dessert we felt welcome in this sophisticated Italian restaurant. From appetizers to entrees to dessert we enjoyed each dish. The wine list had some wonderful California reds. The whole branzino was great as was the squid ink pasta and the sea bass entree. Definitely worth going back again when I'm in Boca Raton.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely RestaurantFood was very good.

Angela D.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Ambiance, Delicious Food!The food was great. The owner served us and was most gracious. The sauces are sublime and the prices are very fair for this quality of restaurant. Highly Recommended!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVE!This was our third time here and honestly, I wish we could go every week. Raffaele himself started us out with beautifully made risotto balls and this time we tried the salmon with a grapefruit sauce and the shrimp "curry" both fresh,gorgeous and cooked to perfection. We ended our evening with R.'s homemade orangcello and perfectly made cappachinos. This is our favorite restaurant of all time and it just keeps outdoing itself.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Italian in Boca RatonThis is a gem in the Boca Italian restaurant scene. They serve creative, well prepared food that rises above the ordinary. The waitstaff is helpful and knowledgable, and the restaurant itself is lovely. I highly recommend Rafaele's.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRaffaele Ristorante is a littleRaffaele Ristorante is a little gem amid an island of fools gold. The cuisine is a continental Italian. It is not your run-of-the meal red gravy place. The interior is esthetically pleasing and soothing to the eye. A local transplant owns it, originally from Naples, Italy, whose restaurant path began in the kitchen at Il Mollino, in NYC, and decades later led him to Boca. The meal started off with an amuse bouche, little seaweed “fritters”. It reminded me of healthy hush-puppy which melted in your mouth. One of our four top, who does not like trying new things, tried it and truly liked it. For an appetizer, I had the home-made buratta in tomato-based puree. It’s freshness, flavor and textures married perfectly. The others had Ceas3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first visit, but definitelyOur first visit, but definitely not our last.
