Nice memories... 11/16/2003

I visited this restaurant about a year and a half ago for my anniversary. And after arriving we waited about 3 minutes before being seated. But lucky us we had the seats by the window which was very romantic. The food was great and the wine just as nice. My girlfriend like that bottle enough that tipsy was a new feeling she learned that night... All along It was a very nice and romantic night. The hostest was very inviting and helpful... I'd come again and again... Pros: Romantic, menu more

A Perfect Evening 4/8/2003

my fiancee and I went here for our celebration dinner and everything was perfect. the food was tremendous, the service was top notch and the mood was relaxed. they were very accomodating to our situation, gave us a private table in the corner. even when i knocked over a wine glass, they made no big deal of it and it was like the accident never happened. to top it off, the bill was under $125 for full dinners and two bottles of wine. Pros: Affordable, Accomodating, Ambience more

Good Stuff 2/15/2003

Creative Italian- not your standard pasta joint. Romantic ambience, great specials, and they also create custom dishes upon request. more

Love it! 2/11/2003

Everything about our experience at Rafaella was wonderful. The service was simply the best we've had. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. more

Excellent ambience and wonderful food 12/13/2002

The food and ambience are wonderful at this West Village Gem. Despite the fact the service is usually slow, if you are willing to have a leisurely night, then this is definately worth a try. more

where is our waiter? 10/24/2002

It's very romantic (simple yet trendy decor, white table cloth setting and the lighting), but the waiter was very hard to find. The daily special my friend ordered was great, but my pasta dish was little too plain. Pros: location, romantic Cons: not attentive waiter more

Romantic! 9/28/2002

Went there last weekend with my boyfriend to celebrate our anniversary in this very romantic, dim lit, comfy restaurant. Although we had a reservation, we had to wait 30 min, but the service turned out to be excellent. My b-friend ordered the osso buco which wasn't too good- I however had the pasta and was amazed. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking to have same great pasta- but stay away from the meat dishes. more

Good dinner? Not exactly 9/9/2002

Agree with the previous reviewer on every point. Dinner here this past Saturday night was unimpressive at best. My grilled calamari app was actually pretty good, but downhill from there. The space is indeed beautiful, but I must say that I left half of my osso buco (a good test for any self-respecting Italian restaurant) on my plate as inedible - way overdone, chock full of chewy bits of gristle. The pile of brown rice it was plopped on looked and tasted like Uncle Ben's - which is fine if you're at home. We also had to pour our own wine. Hard to believe Zagat's quotes someone as saying this place is ""underpriced"" - for what you get, I beg to differ. Pros: Nice space, good neighborhood, by Magnolia Bakery Cons: the food, the service, only beer/wine more
