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 01/04/2021. Thank you for being a part of our success and longevity.

Events - ​Monthly Wine Dinner -If you're staying in town for Memorial Day weekend, come join us on Sunday, May 30th at 5;30pm for a 5-course wine dinner featuring the delicious food and wines of Puglia and its capital city of Bari. Barletta, 20km along the Adriatic coast north of Bari is the birthplace of chef/owner Rosa Buono.

Puglia boasts gorgeous beaches, lush farmland, ornate churches, and ancient ruins. It’s also home to many of the foods Italy is famous for! Its deeply-rooted cucina povera tradition means its cuisine tends to be simple and delicious, relying on fresh, local produce. Plus, even the act of eating itself is a serious local tradition in Puglia.

Puglia is an agricultural region in the far south of Italy (it’s the heel of the country’s boot). With plenty of sun, fertile soil, and a flat landscape it’s ideal for growing vegetables and with over 500 miles of coastline it's home to a dizzying variety of fish and shellfish.

Local and seasonal aren’t fashionable buzz words here, it’s just the way things are done. This region’s cuisine relies mostly on simple cooking methods with pristine flavorful ingredients. This region produces 60% of all vegetables in Italy, 40% of all its wine and 25% of all European produced olive oil. Known for its plentiful fish and shellfish, its varied and fresh vegetables, its Burrata, its Orecchiette al Ragu and its Brasciole, Puglia’s “cucina povera” is truly local and fantastically delicious.

Its famous wines include the reds Negroamaro (Salice Salentino), Primitivo di Manduria, Nero di Troia, Castel del Monte Aglianico, Bombino Nero, Malvasia Nera and the whites Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Bombino Bianco and Fiano.

Come and taste it for yourself! We hope you can join us!
