Got pizza at Pa Raffa's tonight and it was great as usual. If you like thin crust pizza with great sauce and fresh toppings, this place is great. I have eaten here many times and have always been satisfied. Place was packed so I'm glad we were getting it to go. Prices range from $7.24 for plain cheese to $10.19... More

Very Good, consistent, Italian food in a no frills restaurant. You can't go wrong eating here and I'd highly recommend. The price is very reasonable and the food is really good.

Pa Raffa's has been around for what seems like forever in the north end of New Bedford. The food is always excellent as well as the service. They seem to hire just the right people that care about their customers needs. The thin pizza, lasagna and antipasto are the best around! Whether you eat in or get take out, you... More

I've been dining at Pa Raffa's since the 60's.. Yeah yeah dating myself. I still think its the best pizza around. The sauce, oh that sauce is always sweet and zesty. The cheese hot and gooey. The crust always crisp. From the Pizza, antipastos and there lasagna you'll never be disappointed. The lasagna has so many layers of yummyness you'll... More

Great assortment of food, drinks and good help. Haven't been disappointed yet. The red sauce is one of my favorites and I absolutely love the antipasto which is too big for one.

This place has obviously seen better days but it does mad business daily. The thin crust pizza rocks! The Italian salad, lasagna and grinders are great also. They only accept cash and it is not so visible on the door, but they conveniently have an ATM inside (strange for this millennium though). The inside of the Resturaunt needs a complete... More
