Just visited Rafaele for the very first time with my husband and our best friend and both the food and the service was UNBELIEVABLY GOOD !
Since it was restaurant week, we ordered more food than perhaps we would have in a normal setting, and even though we thought we would not be able to finish - we ate everything up to the last crumb of the dessert and we ordered three appetizers, three main courses AND three desserts!!!
The tastes of the different dishes are truly unimitable!!!
So far this was THE BEST Italian restaurant in New York City we have been to!
