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

We went hear on the recommendation of our hotel receptionist, and having read the reviews and we weren't disappointed. We were a party of 7 and so it was a good job we called ahead to book as the place was rammed on this Friday evening. Our waitress was absolutely fantastic - friendly and attentive, making sure the drinks were... More

We have lunch frequently at Raffaele's and have always been delighted by the quality of the food and the friendly staff. They have the best pizzas this side of Naples!

This is a small place in a strip mall, and very noisy and cramped. We ordered a large Special Supreme pizza that according to the menu included pepperoni, beef, sausage, mushrooms, onions, peppers, and extra cheese; and a side order of meatballs. First, they bring your drinks in a 5-6" tall glass, and if your lucky you get more glasses... More

We ordered food to-go from here last night. I asked a friend who is gluten free and likes fresh food like me if she could recommend a place in the Colonial Heights area that is good. She recommended them with rave reviews of food they eat there. Another friend also said they eat there often and love it. I can... More

Kind of an older looking little pizza spot, but food was fantastic. Pizza was huge with tons of topping. I had the Pasta Alla Raffaeles which was unique and tasted great. My only complaint was there were a lot of gnats flying around. Didn't really notice them while we were eating, but they completely swarmed our plates after we finished.

My wife and I eat here regularly. The food is consistently good; the service is always good. I have tried numerous items on the menu and have not been disappointed with any order. My favorites: the grilled chicken sub; any of the calzones/strombolis; pasta alla Rafaelles. My least favorite: pizza. I must admit that many, many people like the pizza... More

My mom and I happened upon this place while returning from a trip, and we were both very impressed. The fact that the gluten free menu offers many homemade gluten free items like bread, cake, pasta, and pizza had me very impressed. Everything tasted fantastic and the price was very reasonable. It is so rare that I find excellent gluten... More
