I have been eating at this place for 40 years! Food is very good and reasonably priced. Country style atmosphere, no problem wearing jeans or shorts. A small Italian salad or antipasto can feed 2 people easily. Ditto for the spaghetti and meat sauce! The chicken marsala and meat lasagna are excellent. Thin crust pizza with tons of toppings. The also have a bar and full take out service. Place is always full.

Pa Raffa's makes the best pizza on the planet. It's just that simple. If you want thick crust, don't go there, if you want incredible service, don't go there, if you want fine dining and an expensive bottle of wine, don't go there. If you want the best pizza ever and some interesting décor and wait staff characters, don't even think of going anywhere else.

Food is good but i Like the antiqated decor like the fafe grapes on the ceiling with a ton of dust and dirt on them. Theve been hanging there since i was a kid, about 40 years and probably never cleaned.

We attended the Chowder Festival in New Bedford where Pa Raffas took first place by the Peoples Choice Award for the delightful Quohog appetizer, not surprising. We decided to once again stop at Pa Raffas for some quick apps and some take out. We ended up staying enjoying a HUGE Antipasto, Vegetable Lasagna and an order of Meat Lasagna, needless to say we had quite a few doggy bags, the portions here are huge, Our server was very pleasant and kept our beverages full at all times even though the restaurant was very busy. I did notice on the way out that the surrounding restaurants had empty parking lots while Pa Raffas lot was full.

Whenever we travel to Mass. from New York to visit family, this restaurant is always included in our plans .Finnally a great Italian restaurant that charges a very reasonable price for super quality food. So many Italian restaurants are charging for not only the food but the fancy surroundings. where here it is like sitting at home chowing down on great Italian fare WITHOUT paying 20 bucks for a bowl of pasta. The staff has always treated us in a fun and friendly manner, we also stock up on some of those great pizza crusts to bring home.
Where we live in a restaurant saturated community, only about half the restaurants accept credit cards, so no problem to stop at an ATM on the way to a restaurant, takes a whopping two minutes and I can only guess that is what helps keep the costs down and the pricing so reasonable at Pa Raffas.
