Raracost is an apparently large Italian restaurant franchise that I had never heard of until one opened up near me. I went by for simple lunch one day and really enjoyed it, so we made plans to come back for dinner later in the week and get the full experience.
All of the window seats were taken, but there was ample seating available in the center. They also had large tables that could accommodate groups of 8-10, I didn't take a picture because a large group was sitting at the large tables and it felt like it would be weird to take a picture of them eating dinner, right? Two tops can also be pushed together with their neighboring for tops so if you have a group of 5-6 then you're covered too. I really like it when you you don't have to worry about seating.
Anyway, on to the menu. Wow, the website menu is actually set up fairly competently but has my one major gripe, no prices. Expect to pay 10,000 on average for most items, with some pastas being a little less and most pizzas being a little more. All-in-all nothing feels like a rip-off and once they bring you your food you can see that the portions are very generous. Let's check out what we ordered.
Primo, but I'm not sure yet. It's thin crust and it looked like they were using a brick oven, or perhaps ceramic. It went well with the beer so 피맥 was enjoyed by me. The beer on the other hand...
They give you free unlimited fountain drinks and coffee. The sign says to please use one glass per person, but you're free to fill that glass up as many times as you like. Awesome. What a nice service to provide your customers. I don't know about you but something like this goes a long way towards putting you in my good books. In the end raracost is awesome for what it is. Maybe it's not 100% authentic Italian food, but it is 100% delicious, and we'll definitely be back. The hard part is just choosing between here and Primo.
Final Review: 4/5 The price vs. the quality here is great.
Location: Raracost is a national franchise with multiple locations in Korea and Daegu. The one I went to was located in Yulha. It's between Yulha and Singi stations, just north of Yulha square. Here's a map.
