This is my third visit to Raffaele's and I was hoping this time would be better. I was not crazy about the taste of the food on my previous visits but, this time topped it off. We met another couple for supper and we were a few minutes late. The waitress appeared to be in a huge hurry even though... More

My brother had been staying in town and have eaten here and said you need to try it so I did. The pizza was OK but the egg plant Parmesan not so much. I was thinking with this being an Italian family, the egg plant Parmesan would be superb....not so much! The eggplant was overcooked the sauce just did not... More

We wanted to watch the Football so we ordered take out. We ordered pizza. It was very good. We would eat there maybe 2 or 3 times a month. We would get great service every time. Good place to eat.

In from out of town and had to stop by again. This time on my own so did carry out. Always nice to get an exceptional gluten free pizza. This is one of the best I have had. Service is quick and courteous as well. When pulling in don't be deceived that they are in and older storefront. They stay... More

Abundant portions of fresh hot Italian dishes served quickly and with a smile. The Italian sausage with pasta was had a wonderful marinara sauce with perfectly cooked pasta. I din't get to try one on this trip but the pizza looked fabulous. The location is the only downside as the parking is not convenient. Put this place in a fancy... More

If you are looking for fresh homemade thin crust pizza in Tennessee, Raffaelle's is the place to go. Not a fancy place but you can tell by the line outside locals love it. My husband and I got salads and shared a thin crust veggie pizza that was a really healthy and delicious choice. They had a decent beer selection... More

Raffaele's is a regular stop when we are in Kingsport. We enjoy the Lasagna and Eggplant Parmesan, usually paired with a house salad with Creamy Italian dressing. This also our favorite place to pickup pizza.

Tucked into a corner at a small nondescript strip mall in the Colonial Heights section of Kingsport is Raffaele's, a worthy stop for a bite to eat, so don't let the bland appearance of the strip mall fool you. Step inside the cafe and you'll be pleasantly surprised by a quiet and cozy cafe interior. I admit, even though I... More

I have been searching far and wide for good Italian AND good pizza in Tennessee. Until I went to Raffaele's, it had all been just "OK food." Raffaele's nailed it. The first time I went, I had the eggplant parmigiana with angel hair. It was absolutely delicious, authentic and the sauce was supreme. I decided to go back for pizza... More

I eat there regularly for lunch and I have never been disappointed. Good portion sizes and friendly staff. Chicken Marsala or Alla Pasta Raffaeles is my favorite
