“Italian at its BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

The menus may be limited but you can't go wrong in anything you order. This is a small but quaint restaurant that is sure to please. The pizza is one of the best in the New Bedford area and the Roast Beef grinder can't be beat. Stop in and see for yourself. They also have a take-out which is always busy but the food comes out hot.

“Can't beat Pa Raffa's for Italian good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Went to Pa's for supper my wife had her usual mushroom with extra sauce pizza. I had the hot grinder - Italian grinder - you won't find a better Italian meal anywhere in the area. The food is great, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is really nice. If you like small restaurants with HUGE flavor, delicious food and great service try PA's you won't be disappointed. Oh yes you won't go away hungry.

“Always have this pizza when we are in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

This pizza is unique. The crust is out of this world- nice and thin! Whenever we return to town, Pa Raffas is on our list of must go to places. Try the linguica pizza and the mushroom pizza!

“My Favorite Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

I love thin crust pizza, and they make the best pizza in the area. I usually get the meatball or linguica pizza. They also allow you to buy the pizzas to bake at home. Only downfall is they dont take any credit cards, make sure to stop for cash.

“tasty pizza but no credit cards”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

One of the best linquica pizzas. excellent thin crust. I was pleasantly surprised by excellent and tasty stuffed quahog. service was attentive. would have been an excellent rating if they took credit cards. Very outdated decor but I was there for food-not atmosphere. It gets crowded but is frequented by locals so you know it is good food!
