We booked Rafele with homemade pasta in mind. The ambience was really nice and the menu sounded great. We started with the meatballs and artichokes for appetizers. Meatballs were fantastic, but the artichokes didn't have much of a taste.   The service was good, servers are very attentive which I factor one star. Our experience with our selection however, was the issue. when we were reading the menu we were really interested in Spaghetti alla Napoletana which boasts, homemade spaghetti, tuna, anchovies, garlic, olive oil, peperoncino. All I could picture was canned tuna--but I wouldn't think a restaurant of such praise would serve canned tuna, and the server confirmed its not canned tuna so two of us ordered it. When it arrived, it was clearly canned tuna (see pictures). Also, unfortunately, the pasta seemed like it was not homemade and came from a box (not confirmed.. it just didn't have the texture of homemade pasta that I've had elsewhere). I'm not one to cause a fuss so we didn't say anything and we just ate around the tuna and got through dinner. Our friend had the lamb Ragu and she was very pleased. Hopefully this is a fluke- I would probably come back and give them another chance.
So epic! The food was amazing and so fresh. The service was incredible and they mix their drinks very well there. One of my favorite places after being in NYC for 8 years. A must go!
Amazing authentic Italian. My go to place for great dinner and good wine with my girls but is also an awesome date night spot. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
