CASH ONLY, that doesn't deter us, the staff are friendly and the food is fantastic. They put your order up to the way you request!

Pa Raffas has been a favorite for a long time.The thin pizza crust is so good and their antipasto is unbeatable. The waitresses are the best and make you feel welcome and they never rush you. The food is large servings and delisious.

Pa Raffa's is an old Italian staple in the New Bedford area. The antipasto is a classic that can't be missed. On our most recent visit, we also had the spaghetti and a roast beef sub. It's an old school place, but worth the visit.
