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 26th anniversary on 01/04/2020. Thank you for being a part of our success and longevity.

Events - ​Monthly Wine Dinner - Please join us for a gastronomical virtual tour of the  Mediterranean European nations of Italy, Greece, France, Spain and Portugal. Our 5-course wine pairing dinner will be Sunday, January 31st at 5:30pm and it will feature the delicious food and wines of these countries.  Despite their different languages and economic features, these countries are united by a common cultural and historical heritage, which is derived from Greco-Roman influence. Their weaving of common threads is an impressive number of tangible and intangible cultural assets—including monuments, literature, dialects, customs, inventions, superstitions, and symbols that are constantly highlighted to promote mutual understating, dialogue and a sense of oneness.  Thus there is much more convergence than divergence on fundamental values and willingness to live and work together and intermarriage.

Italy, Greece, France, Spain and Portugal share beautiful scenic coastlines, perfect beaches, ancient architectural and artistic treasures, heartwarming hospitality, cultural & family values and a way of life (la dolce vita) that stresses leisure times, constant interaction with friends and family and activities with large groups of people; but they also share a love for food and wine which is usually the centerpiece of all gathering while adhering to the Mediterranean diet:

Eating primarily plant-based foods, such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts,

Replacing butter with healthy fats such as olive oil,

Using herbs and spices instead of salt to flavor foods,

Limiting red meat to no more than a few times a month,

Eating fish and poultry as often as possible,

Replacing daily end of the meal desserts with fruit and nuts,

Enjoying meals with family and friends, and of course

Drinking wine daily, preferably red wine..

We will be serving a course with a wine pairing from each of these countries attempting to feature the most ubiquitously representative dishes from each nation as well as its most famous wines, in the process enjoying the healthy and delicious foods that are common ground in these regions.

We sincerely hope that you will be able to joins us for this delicious treat.
