Food was decent, service not very good. An ok meal, for a local place, but would rate in the top 50 or better anywhere. It's just ok......nothing more.

Raffaele's is one of the best Italian restaurant in Kingsport. The staff is helpful and friendly. We love the big salad and the sandwiches are fantastic, my favorite is the grilled veggie. And the prices are reasonable.
