Rafagino restaurant


About Us

Our company is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals. In those rare instances when we might not meet your expectations, I promise two things: First, that it was not for lack of effort, for negligence or merely for dereliction of duty. Second, that we will try even harder next time. We might not always succeed but we will absolutely always try. As the proverb goes; if at first you don't succeed... you know the rest.

We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.

A quarter of a century plus - Rafagino Restaurant just had its 27th anniversary on 01/04/2022. Thank you for being a part of our success and longevity.

Happy 27th Birthday, Rafagino! It’s been an incredible ride so far and we are looking forward to the future. I would like to thank all of our customers for their invaluable support and patronage over the years.

Especially during this pandemic, your generosity was the primary reason for our survival. Salute!!!

You have our unending and unforgettable gratitude.

Events - ​Monthly Wine Dinner - Due to a previous commitment, this month's wine dinner will be on the penultimate Sunday of the month instead of the last Sunday of the month. 

Please join us this Sunday, May 22nd at 5:30pm for our monthly 5-course wine-pairing dinner.   

 We will feature the city of Bologna and the surrounding region of Emilia-Romagna. This is the food capital of Italy; Bologna (known for its Bolognese sauce, lasagna and its Mortadella), Parma (famous for its Prosciutto di Parma and Parmesan cheese), Modena (famous for its aged balsamic vinegar), Ferrara (famous for its chocolate), Rimini and Riccione (famous for its seafood as well as its beach resorts). As if that wasn't enough, this region is home to Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and Ducati.  

This is also where the mythical tomato parallel is located.  It is said that any recipe north of Bologna calls for butter while south of Bologna calls for olive oil, north of Bologna most sauces are cream based while south of Bologna they are mostly tomato sauces and while north of Bologna risotto and polenta reign supreme, south of Bologna pasta is the undisputed king of the meal.

The most famous wines from this region are the white Albano, Trebbiano and Malvasia as well as reds such as Lambrusco, Sangiovese, Bonarda and Barbera.

We hope you'll be able to join us as we discover this beautiful region of Italy.

If you'd like to join us, please call the restaurant for reservations at (703) 455-3095.

Thank you,

Paulo & Rosa

Eat well and drink passionately!

We would love for you to join us for a FUNtastic time!!!
