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.

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.

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.

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!
