good brick oven pizza, fresh pasta. Lots choices on menu. BUT Decor is old and worn with neon lights that are ugly. No italian bistro feeling.

Before or after the BALL
Was attending Cinderella at the Broadway theatre and this was a perfect place to eat before or after.
Very good service, food and attention to their customers.
Would highly recommend this place.

Service Has Improved
The Serafina chain has always had authentic italian pastas and pizzas at reasonable prices. But their service was often lacking in certain locations. After dinner at the 55th street location however, we were pleased to find the service prompt, polite and efficient. Roving managers seem to have things under firm control. Good work!

Went with a group of 12 for a graduation lunch. They gave us a private room it was very nice and delicious.

Enjoyed it very much & would definitely return. My only comment would be about the music. It was more bass than actual music over the loud speaker and at times annoyinhg.

My dining experience at Serafinas was great. The food was delicious, service was great and the overall experience was fantastic. We were seated quickly by a
Friendly hostess and just as quickly met our waiter. Highly recommend to anyone.

A good meal right off Broadway!
We really enjoyed our meal at Serafina's. We were there on a non-theater night, so probably did not get the full experience - as the restaurant was not at all crowded. The food was very good. Loved my mushroom risotto. My husband really enjoyed his Linguini and Clam Sauce. Daughter (22 yrs old) was not as crazy about her ravioli and cream sauce with a sage flavor. Husband ordered tiramisu and it was outstanding (I consider myself a tiramisu expert!).
The service was only so-so, as our waitress was covering several tables (and she did not seem very interested in ours!). The busboy who was helping her serve was much more attentive and was able to get us our sodas and water. The meal was pretty reasonably priced for NYC at $85.

friends and serafina
we had a lovely evening and weren't chased out long after we were done with our delicious meal. Thank you!

I went to Serafina for a business lunch, and it was a great choice. Service was very good, food was delicious. I would recommend this place for a business lunch.

Good for pre- and post-theatre
The four of us had a well-prepared dinner before theatre, and returned for tasty desserts in an unhurried atmosphere.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the wait staff was friendly and proficient. There is some construction going on out front so there are some metal framework that detracts from the appearance but other than that the experience was fantastic. We sat at a table outside under the construction scaffolding but it wasn't really a problem. Def will come back!

Lugar gostoso para um jantar a dois. Food was excellente.

Quiet and empty considering it was a weekend on July. Perfect to end the day, without noise, away from Times Square frenesi, and Serafina finest quality.

Yummy pizza and salads
The ladies in our group ordered salads, which were wonderful. Our kids ordered pizzas, which they couldn't finish, so the ladies offered to help "clean their plates" and discovered that the pizza was great! Next time, forget the diet - I'm ordering pizza!

The best restaurant we visit in NY in our 7 days stayng.

Or food was outstanding and so was our waiter (unfortunately cannot recall his name). Made wonderful recommendations that we thoroughly enjoyed. Will definitely go back again and try something else next time!! Get the Nutella chocolate soufflé it's to die for!

Great food and wonderful experience
Any time I happen to take a bus into NYC for a Broadway Show and theatre is near your restaurant I will definitely be there to eat.
There were four ladies in my group and one of them reluctantly tried something out of the norm and was so so happy.

Dinner After A Play
My daughter and I ate here after a play. The hostess was personable and the waiter was just the right amount of attentive. I had the Grilled Filet Mignon, which was cooked perfectly and my daughter had the Ravioli Alla Salvia. We ordered desserts souffle and tiramisu.

Service was attentive but not rushed.

If you love Italian
It was crowded, a good sign. Recommended from our hotel as good Italian in the theater district - we were going to a Broadway play. Food was wonderful. Little hard to get our server's attention - they were hopping from table to table, but we were well fed and well served.

Excellent food and great location near Broadway shows
10/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
We took a chance in trying a restaurant in the City Center area that wasn't super expensive or rated poorly due to overpriced food. We were pleasantly welcomed rom the manager / hostess to the waiter. The decor was attractive & food was very good. My date ordered the chicken paillard, which could easily have fed two, & I ordered the salmon which was delicious. Only one issue; I ordered the lentil soup & when I took my first bite I found pasta in the dish. As a gluten free eater this was not good. They told me the pasta was a garnish & it would not be a problem to serve another bowl without pasta. Overall, it was a pleasant experience & we made it to to City Center with some time to spare.

nice reunion lunch
The five of us enjoyed our lunch at Serafina.....had a nice table to accommodate us and our order was taken swiftly....we all had salads and pastas and all were very good. Came out to about $25 a piece which was pretty good. We'll definitely go back.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We tried this place for brunch, it was great.Great value for your buck.However, their Bloody Mary wasn't good.So I got Bellini and Bellini got me relaxed.lol.

Pasta cooked perfectly, bruschetta was excellent and the service was great . Would go back for sure

great place to dine
Serafina is a pretty place where the food and service are wonderful. We had lunch before the theater and couldn't have been happier.

Great Thanksgiving Dinner
Made a reservation thru open table for 4:00. Both of our children were very cranky so we made our way to the restaruant much earlier, 1pm. They sat us right away and was seen by a server in minutes. I ordered the stuffed turkey dinner and my husband had the chicken parm. We loved our food! Our daughters had the bambina pasta and organic chicken and it was gone in minutes. There was a mix of people eating, some families and others with just adults. Overall great experience and will return!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was so much better than expected ! The waiter was also very accommodating since we also had a show to go to right after dinner.

My friend and I had dinner
My friend and I had dinner at Serafina before attending an event at Carnegie Hall. The food was very tasty, the presentation was very nice. The servers were attentive but did not rush us through our meal. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed. I would certainly return when I am in the neighborhood.

I'll be back

This was our first time here. We ate at the 55th and broadway location on a Saturday evening around 8 pm. The food and service were excellent and the restaurant had a decent wine list. The price was also very reasonable. The atmosphere was very nice however it was a bit noisy but that is to be expected on a Saturday night in midtown manhattan. We had drinks at the top of the adjoining dream hotel after which was very convenient. Overall it was an excellent experience and we will definitely be going back.
