Lovely food, great service. Will definitely come again
Amazing food, generous portions, great drinks (cocktails). Wine list could be a little improved upon.
Me and my partner had a lovely meal with a great atmosphere and fantastic service, we will definitely be visiting again!
Italian style Sunday Lunch, the slow cooked pork belly was incredible.
Had a lovely meal in lovely surroundings, just a pity that the drinks are so expensive especially the wine. Definitely go again.
We booked a table at Raffina as an anniversary date night treat after being recommended by a friend.
( It was a Saturday evening )
On arrival the restaurant was empty, whilst the staff were attentive and friendly there was zero ambiance, we remained the only customers in the restaurant.
The food was average at best, little to choose from the menu and overpriced for the quality of food.
A disappointing experience overall, would not recommend.
Nice Relaxing lunch venue, basic menu but good food
Lovely evening meal. Food was good and presented well. The starters we shared were a highlight. Great service and staff were knowledgeable on the menu and recommendations. Such a nice ambience in there at night too.
Lovely chilled atmosphere and delicious food. Service was excellent. Would definitely go back.
Small menu. One starter and one main (out of two!) we considered very strange. Very long wait for mains even tho only 3 tables taken, with no apology. Wine vastly overpriced. Very disappointed.

Fab Sat am brunch with the kids, great vibe, quality food and the best coffee in the area.
Really lovely place for breakfast with amazing service!
Tasty food, good value and service and welcome excellent. I have never been disappointed on any visit to Raffina. I highly recommend a visit.
Great dining experience. A clean and beautiful restaurant. I absolutely loved the salad I ordered, it was super fresh and very flavoursome. Staff very professional and friendly.
Food was very reasonably priced, especially compared to the new Marmadukes up the road. The food at Raffina was delicious, lots of options including vegan and veggie. Fresh juice was delicious!
The staff were excellent, the food was good. Drinks, especially wine, overpriced.
We went for lunch on a Tuesday and it was quiet. Staff pleasant and helpful. Food v nice though it was a little slow arriving as not busy. Desserts mixed, Tiramisu was a dry though mini doughnuts were enjoyable. We would be happy to return though today’s visit was pleasant if a little lacking in some areas.
The food and wine was so good however the service wasn’t the best, still had a nice time though
I visited the restaurant (Ecclesall Road, Sheffield) and was very quite disappointed with menu choice, i have to be careful in what i eat and always look before attending. I did struggle to find something that suited my diet.
The wine is very expensive, lowest price for bottle £30, other restaurant have lower priced bottles to suit other budgets. I drank Rose, which was ok, but after a while gave me a headache straight away. No other option, not even a blush.
The menu looked very exciting but didn’t really deliver. The tomato bruschetta was tasty but just halved Cherry tomatoes on a very thick piece of bread. Lacked imagination. The carpaccio was ok but didn’t like the very crispy lentils. The cod was nice but don’t like slimy fish skin. Needed to be crispy to give some texture to the dish. And lastly the Parmigiana was very heavy, very big and a bit ordinary.
I have to say that the staff were fantastic! Some of the best ,especially Luke. What a pleasure. Restaurant also lovely.
Slow service and antipasti was underwhelming for the price. Cocktails were very nice though
Thoroughly recommend a vist to Raffina, Ecclesall Rd. The menu provides plenty of choice for even the most particular diner, me!
My friend and I really enjoyed our lunch. The ambience was convivial and we are looking forward to coming again soon.
Excellent fresh food sourced locally and cooked in a very traditional Italian style. Excellent wine coffee and a great range of desserts for the evening, and pastries for morning. Recommended!
Food was lovely, staff were friendly and attentive
Really tasty food
Love the decor
Food was fantastic with lovely service. Thoroughly recommend
The food was superb and excellent portion sizes, although a little expensive - especially when you can't resist the cocktail menu! But the service was excellent, the atmosphere and decor is fabulous, and we'll definitely return - we just might be saving it for special occasions :)
Perfect as an upscale family dining experience. Staff was pleasant and attentive. Food was freshly prepared and had a string flavour of local, top-notch produce. The drinks were generous. The deserts were well sourced and quite a delicious way to end the meal. Would recommend for small groups of four to five. The Tagliere (antipasto board) was an excellent starter and our personal fav.
It was a last minute booking, and we really were delighted with the food, drinks, atmosphere- almost felt like being in a Mediterranean city! Was fabulous would recommend and I cannot wait to return
Service was abit slow and other customers quite loud
Food was amazing
Fantastic lunch, and great service. Highly recommend the brownies, too.
This was my third visit to Raffina and it just keeps getting better and better. Delicious food, great service and a lovely atmosphere. I will be back again very soon!
The service we received from the moment we walked in was great and nothing was too much trouble. The food was served in good time and was presented very well. It tasted even better though! The whole place is great and we’ll definitely be returning soon.
Fantastic food. Had the most amazing tempura prawns as a starter and gnocchi. Delish. Staff were friendly and attentive.
Thank you for your kind review, Lisa!
We really enjoyed our meal last night, the food was amazing, friendly informative staff and great decor
Thank you for the kind review, Sally. We're so pleased you enjoyed your experience with us.
Excellent food and good service. The tuna tartare was great. Even the salad that went with the arancini was tasty. Loved the nutella gnocchi as well! Good-sized portions. We sat outside and it was lovely to get the evening sunshine. You can't do much about the traffic noise outside but it was ok once you got used to it and you wouldn't hear it inside.
Thank you for the 5 star review! We hope you'll join us again soon.
Yummy brunch, coffee and pastries made a lovely Saturday morning. Nice atmosphere, service and food. Family friendly too, we took our toddler and they have high-chairs and colouring in sheets to keep them entertained.
Thank you for the great review! We hope to welcome you again soon.
Very pleasant dining room , friendly owner and staff. Good food and drink. Well worth trying!

Thank you for the kind review, Ann. We hope to welcome you again soon.
