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 started its 28th year in business on 01/04/2023. Thank you for being a part of our success and longevity.

Monthly Wine DinnerPIEMONTE

Please join us this Sunday, March 26th at 5:30pm for a 5-course wine-tasting dinner featuring the delicious food and wines of Piemonte and its capital city of Turin the most industrialized city in Italy and home to automakers Fiat, Alfa-Romeo & Pininfarina, Olivetti Electronics and Lavazza coffee.

This region’s food has more in common with French cuisine than Italian. Most pasta sauces are butter and cream based, meats are eaten either grilled or stewed and fish is almost nonexistent in traditional Piemontese cuisine with the exception of Tuna, Salmon, Trout and Baccala.

Its specialties include Veal Tonnato, Agnolotti, Bresato al Barolo (a tasty beef stew) and Taleggio cheese sauces. This region is the leading producer of rice and Hazelnuts and the birthplace of Nutella. It is also home to Ferrero, the third largest chocolate producer in the world, Alba famous for its white truffles, Asti known for its Moscato, Asti Spumanti and some of the best wines in the world such as Barolo.

Aptly named Piedmont (foot of the mountain), this region surrounded on three sides by the Alps, enjoys an unrivaled seat among the world's very finest wine regions. Home to such well known and respected wines Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera, Dolcetto, Roero Arneis, Gavi di Gavi and Moscato d'Asti. Although famous for its austere, tannic, and floral red wines made from Nebbiolo, Piedmont's greatest success story in the past decade has been sweet, white, sparkling Moscato d'Asti.


If you decide to join us, please call the restaurant for reservations at (703) 455-3095 


Best wishes,

Paulo & Rosa
