Diner Reviews
  • "Pleasantly surprised. I thought as a chain it would be only fair, and it was quite good. Also Italian speaking people seated near me, which was a good sign. One of the reasons we chose it was because the price seemed moderate but we ended up spending $85/head anyway (before tip). Given the dearth of good restaurants in this part of town, this is an excellent option."

  • "If you in the Upper East Side and are tired of extravagant food and need very good food at fair prices and casual attire, this is perfect. The lobster pasta is fabulous and wine list extremely fair. Great pizzas and all the other pasta dishes I’ve tried are very good. This place fills up fast after 7pm."

  • "Fish was over cooked and drowned in a tasteless pinkish sauce, chicken Parmesan was petrified and gnocchi dish was just goo. Cheapest bottle of red wine at $65 retails for $8 in wine shops. Needless to say it was a waste... Filled with UES parents feeding pizza to their kids. Yuck."

  • "The pizza is very good but the other dishes are bland and overcooked. This restaurant is good for groups but the service and food could use a little more attention."

  • "The staff and services are terrific. Food is also very good. Must start off by sharing a pizza & then find out what the daily specials are. The ownership is as nice as the staff & most always there to make your visit a memorable one."

  • "We were looking for a different Italian restaurant in the low 60s and decided to try Serafina. The service and the food were fine, but not better than "good." We wanted to like it more than we did. A problem in getting Open Table credit from the restaurant that reported us as a now show didn't help."

  • "Brought my daughters and friend to have Sunday lunch. Truffle focaccia was amazing! Pasta and salad was delusions as well. Saw other friends there who also commented what a good meal they had."

  • "This used to be decent and affordable, but lately not so much any more. Last two times I went, food is becoming more and more mediocre and very pricey. I won't go anymore and do not recommend it anymore."

  • "Nice location, long narrow restaurant, with lots of noise and super fast service. We sat upstairs with all the families, small table for 5 people. Somewhat pricey, and good food,mbut not a place to relax and enjoy the company of your family conversation. Downstairs is the best place to sit, relax, and enjoy the slower service."

  • "We were a large group of 17. We were seated upstairs in a small area where three large groups could be at one time. They decided to turn the music on. We couldn't hear ourselves talk. They turned off the music at our request. The pizza was good. The other dishes were not. We will never go back."

  • "Food was delicious, the service was not the best. They were a bit slow, but they were polite and apologized for any issues. They forgot a dish we ordered so they gave us two free desserts so they tried to accomodate. I would go back because the food was worth it."

  • "Popular Italian place with good food and bundles of energy (read, families with kids, twenty-somethings) but neither peaceful or romantic dining."

  • "I do not live in New York and have been here a few times. The last time it was excellent, this time the service was rough. The server fit the New York stereo type of a little too blunt. I would still go there again, just hopefully the server was having a bad day the day I was there or next time hopefully get someone else."

  • "Lovely menu has something to appeal to anyone who enjoys food. Nicely prepared. Served at speed requested by customer. I was catching up with a longtime friend & didn't feel rushed to order or leave. Very nice service."

  • "Kudos...we came with 2 young grandchildren...early, so as not to let them get too hungry, or to upset other patrons. We were seated upstairs where we didn't need to be self-conscious or stared down. Our service was better than attentive. Only after we'd gotten our check did another table get seated in our area. Thank goodness for everyone...We had a great meal and Serafina returned to its normal charm very quickly....thank you for anticipating our needs. And...the food was excellent and enjoyed by all. The kids' menu is brilliant!"

  • "I love the ambiance of this place - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The rigatoni bolognese was amazing. Everyone at the table loved their meal. Service was well-timed and friendly, the waiter did not rush us."

  • "Staff was nice. Food was great, we really loved the focaccia de Sofia!!! The truffle ravioli was amazing, as well as the branzino alla sale. We definitely recommend this place to everyone, we had a large table including children and we were all very happy"
