Serafina Restaurant Group was conceived when Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato made a pact while traumatically lost at sea. The two friends agreed to open a restaurant serving the best pizza and pasta in the world if they were to survive the ordeal. In 1995, they fulfilled their promise by launching the highly acclaimed Serafina Fabulous Pizza. Following the success of their first location, they have gone on to open numerous locations worldwide!

In 2008, they opened Brasserie Cognac in the Theater District where Chef Florian V. Hugo, a great-great-great grandson of poet Victor Hugo, serves fine French cuisine. Vittorio and Fabio energetically guarantee comfort, excitement and fabulous food at every location!

Disappointing dinner. I have always liked going to Serafina restaurants around NYC, but this one at 105th is always under par. I first thought it was because they were new (I went within a few days of their opening), but having gone twice since then, I still find the food and service not as good as the other Serafina's.

Disappointing meal at Serafina 105. I enjoy many of the Serafina restaurants around the city, but this one was disappointing. My pasta was over cooked and the chicken was chewy. Their wines weren’t very good. I won’t be going back.

Went to Serafina with a neighborhood friend and we enjoyed it very much. The food is good -- but the artichoke salad is spectacular. Pizzas and pastas are great and the menu has something for everyone. Our server was friendly and attentive. The prices are right. Will definitely return.

Average food, nice service, average ambiance, a little high-priced for such average-ness.
I would not care to return but have a friend in the neighborhood and if this place pleases her, I'll order only a small pizza.
Best bet--stick to the basics here.

I live the gnocchi and spaghetti bolognese here. It’s delicious! Of course, they don’t always get my order correct. That has happened at least twice before and it happened on this occasion too. The waitstaff is slow and not very attentive but certainly friendly. The olive oil at the table with bread is delicious. I will buy a bottle next time.

The food is solid. It's known throughout the city that Serafina is great for dining all the time. This new location at 105 is completely welcome and will become a neighborhood fave, though is probably a little pricey for families to come all the time.

Service was very slow. We waited a long time for drinks, close to an hour for our salads and appetizers, and when we thought at last our entrees were being served they were promptly whisked away to the apparent right table. One pasta dish arrived cold and with one small piece of chicken (added for an additional $6). It was sent back. Gratuity for our party of 7 was included but at a presumptuous 20%. Pasta was very good. But overall it was a very disappointing and relatively experience dining expensive. Won’t go back.

We have had positive experiences at other branches of Serafina, but were disappointed by our first visit to this outpost. The food was bland--the arugula salad was wilted, shrimp was not fresh, and the pasta had too much sauce. Overall, the meal was overpriced and unappealing.

The service is horrible. The waiter never once came by although the salads had not even come out 45 minutes into the meal. The drinks were wrong and there was no carbonation in the soda. Wine was warm. When we called the manager over there was a lot of eye rolling and although she apologized, there was no offer to get a round of drinks or to even offer more bread. I’ve been to three other Serefina’s and they’ve all been great. Do not waste your money here.

The UWS has a new great place to eat! Simply delicious food, he service amazing, and the place could not be more enjoyable. A party of six on a Friday night and we never felt rushed, hurried or ignored. The food was really, really good. I have to tell you, was not so impressed by the other Serafina locations, but this new location was phenomenal. It may become my new neighborhood go-to!

Went with another family of three. The ambiance was good for this sort of relaxed group. Other than the pizza, which was excellent, the food was pretty bad. Caesar salad entirely soft green leaves soaked in oily dressing. Shrimp and avacado with white beans was sour and inedible.
