Walking down 7th avenue in the West Village, you are going to come across Rafele. They have a huge outdoor patio section and a big inside as well. I went here for my birthday dinner last August while my family was still trying to social distance. We were able to sit at a table off to the side in our own private patio section. It was perfect. The menu had a lot of options, making it difficult to decide what to order. It ended up ordering the Pappardelle alla Bolognese. It was very flavorful and pappardelle is one of my favorite types of pasta. I would recommend this spot to a friend and come back.
