This is a small restaurant completely managed by the owner who is an excellent cook. The meals are delicious and excellent cook. They are also reasonably priced. Went here twice would recommend it.

Visited in January 2014 and found Raffaello's to be in good form with usual good food and a reasonably priced menu. The town was virtually closed down for winter but the best three restaurants were still open .

We had a lovely meal in this restaurant - the owner/chef was very welcoming - excellent food, good reasonably priced wine, and friendly service. Best meal and value for money during our trip. Really worth a visit.

Dined here several times and always the food is fresh and delightfully served. Small husband and wife operation but certainly one of the best dining experiences in the village. Simple dishes and very reasonably priced. Suffers from being on a side street away from the...More
