This is the best local authentic Italian pizza place. They also have delicious pasta and salads. This is not a chain and produces superior pizza as compared to the typical chain. We order nearly weekly from Raffaele's and are always pleased. If you are visiting in the area, give them a try.

So why a 3 star??? They got the order wrong... bit were gracious to correct it. Once received it was better than average. My GFs pizza was good too. I'll be back to try something different. Service was nice.. They have some dishes I like...

Authentic Italian bistro food from a family of second generation Italian immigrants. Couldn't be better.

I once had a friend who was visiting from NJ say, "you live in Tennessee, why would you take me to an Italian restaurant?" My answer, after slapping him in the head for being rude and ungrateful (I was paying, of course) was that one can't find more authentic Italian food anywhere in the US.

First time here. The sign says, "authentic Italian." Not so much. Pizza dough was under cooked in the center, very doughy. Asked for a side of anchovies and was told they don't have much request, so just use a can at a time, would not sell me the entire can. I said that was odd for an Italian restaurant. The person replied, "Well Italians eat them." Also, they use canned mushrooms.
