Da Raffaele - NYC
Excellent food and service! Scungilli Fradiavolo cooking perfect, not many restaurant have anymore. My wife order lasagna Bolognese with besciamel superb better than Bologna.
My wife and I always enjoy whatever we get. Great atmosphere and always nice to see Rafaelle there working hard. He’s such a nice guy!
Old style Italian restaurant and I mean it as a compliment. Quiet, friendly service, excellent food. Will definitely adopt it as a neighborhood spot.
Neighborhood gem . We are so locking to have this excellent restaurant in the neighborhood. I am eating to Da Raffaele and the food and the service never disappoints me. Home made pasta is cooking perfect.
Excellent continued like this. We love your beautiful consistent food. Bravissimo!!
Simply the best meal i have had in a long time. Every dish came out perfectly .
Cozy little Italian restaurant in East Midtown with an upscale ambiance and excellent food. Service was terrific. We ordered the scallops appetizer, spaghetti and meatballs and paccheri with eggplant puree. All phenomenal. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on their menu.
Somewhat disappointing. Food was not great. Service was good and it is s charming place, but food was just OK. Pasta was gloppy & not that tasty.
Da Raffaele is N1 in the neighborhood.Quality end Prices
More expensive than suggested by Opentable guide
We never have bad meal To Da Raffaele. Service and ambiance are excellent!
Service was outstanding and the food was delicious. I appreciated the quiet environment.
Nice, but the branzino wasn’t as good as the last time and the price was higher
Excellent quality food. And very comfortable price For NYC.
Perfect place and great service
just the right size and ambience- reasonable price for quiet dinner with very good food and wine list
Low quality Italian food with fancy labeling and pricing
We go there regularly, it’s a wonderful neighborhood restaurant and one that’s also worth going to for celebrating a special occasion.
Consistently a great restaurant. Food and service are always outstanding. One of those restaurant that gets better with every visit. Favorite place for a nice meal that is not outrageous expensive
This is a real contemporary Italian restaurant with great atmosphere and food. We will be back!
Our favorite neighborhood restaurant! Nothing beats the fine Italian menu, including numerous specials, and the service by Raphael!
We selected this restaurant based on the Yelp reviews which were very strong. However, we were quite disappointed in all aspects other than the service which was decent. The restaurant was quite cold although it was not that warm outside. The candles on every table were not lit. The mushroom ravioli appetizer was good but the salmon main course, which our party of three all ordered, was only fair - was under cooked based on the server's recommendation to ask for "medium rare." Thus, we sent back our salmon for further cooking. Hence, we would not return.
Always we have excellent food. The fish is always cooking perfect.
Baby Lamb Alla Romana FAVOLOSO . Black spaghetti with Manila clams and asparagus pure. Excellent. And the pistachio tartufo ice cream. They make me crazy 😜. Very authentic Italian cuisine. I extremely recommend.
Delicious and innovative menu. Always a delightful experience at this cozy, friendly and elegant Italian restaurant.
Pleasant atmosphere and good Italian food, and especially the risotto.
Pappardelle whit fresh Porcini Great. Dove sole excellent. Prices very reasonable. We will recommend.
Excellent food for the beginning to the and ! I love homemade pasta and desserts!
Amazing gem, excellent value for money. Will go back there anytime!
Everything is good, and you will feel at home in the dining room!! All is good, but I Love the Branzini !!
Excellent food, innovative cuisine, great place for lunch.
One of the best Authentic Italian cucina in NYC!
A wonderful neighborhood restaurant - nothing fancy but a relax atmosphere with sensational food.
If you are visiting NYC and staying in the UN neighborhood this should be a must for a relaxing evening, they do not rush you, with great food.
Wonderful experience and great food. Will be back!
Da Raffaele is the only authentic Italian restaurant in the neighborhood! I have for appetizers stuffed mossols with cannellini beans puréed !! Whaooo delicious and Halibut whit radish and green peas puree!! Excellent. I will recommend this restaurant!
Da Raffaelle's has been around for decades, they just used to be located at 57th. street and 1st avenue. The new location is nicer even. The Art work by artist Busser Howell is exquisite as was the food. We were three for dinner. Everything was delicious and we plan on coming back soon because it's actually quiet enough to have a conversation. Highly recommended!
Excellent food! Top quality! Great wine list by the glass. Will recommend this restaurant.
Excellent food and service. Looking forward to a return visit.
The most interesting and delicious pasta in NYC!!
The food was amazing and overall experience A +
