The room was full, but not crowded. It was noisy but not harsh. The food was excellent and the service was ok considering how busy it was on a Friday Night, The staff was attentive and pleasant. I will return

Had lunch at Rafele. Delicious Italian food. Main course salads were all looked great. Had the grilled beef with arugula. Perfection. Don’t skip dessert. Staff is knowledgeable and professional. I will be back for dinner soon.

Went after work on a coworker’s recommendation. Got the pork chops which came with a salad. It was a well breaded slab of chop. It had a good natural pork taste, excellent. Also tried the deep fried cheese which was a good appetizer. The main...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
