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 Dinner - SARDINIA

Please join us on Sunday, May​ 28th for a 5-course wine dinner featuring the delicious food and wines of the beautiful island of Sardinia (the 2nd largest island in the Mediterranean).

This region’s cuisine is influenced by its original inhabitants the Nuraghic people from 1600 B.C and its many invaders - Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs and Spanish. Sardinia didn’t become part of Italy until 1861, so the island had more than 2,500 years to absorb these hybrid influences.  Sardinia's food culture is strictly divided into food from the land and food from the sea, reflecting the island's historical vicissitudes and especially its geographic landscapes, spacing from the coastline to the ragged mountains of the interior.  With twice as many sheep as people, lamb as well as pork are very popular. Great seafood from its waters include Tuna, swordfish, sardines, anchovies, lobster and many others. 


Sardinia also offers lots of great wines such as its famous white wines including Vermentino, Torbato, Malvasia and its red wines such as Cannonau (Grenache) and Carignano.  This is also the location of the largest contiguous vineyard in all of Italy (Sella & Mosca) in the northwest part of the island.


We hope you'll be able to join us.  Please call the restaurant for reservations at (703) 455-3095.
