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!

Food and drinks were amazing, food came out steaming hot everything was great. Service was also great. Just the ambiance threw me off a bit, no music playing and very quiet dim place.

Our Thanksgiving dinner at Serafina was delicious. The service was excellent. Serafina has very nice outdoor seating - one of the best in the neighborhood- so we had a great time. We have been there a few times and would highly recommend it to anyone for any occasion.

Waiter brought wrong appetizer-
2 waiters brought second course before removing empty appetizer plates.
Forgot to bring item requested. had to be reminded
overcooked pasta-- grilled octopus appetizer plate had more roasted potatoes than octopus-penne a la vodka sauce was extremely thick

First and last time, horrible experience 2 hours for the food and when it finally arrives it wasn’t edible. Tried to bribe us with free bread and olive oil. I’ve heard great things so I had high expectations but I will never return nor recommend to anyone. Worst experience thus far.

Brussels sprout salad was more like guacamole but was still delicious. Both ravioli with sage and with lobster were very good.

Great ambiance, welcoming staff. Delicious Octopus! Brussels Sprouts are also a favorite. All pasta dishes including their pizza are all delicious. Definitely recommend.

It was just okay. The food was good but service was just alright. We had a lot of empty glasses that needed water. I was also pretty upset that they didn’t tell us soda wasn’t free refills. It would have been really nice to know that. I blame that on our waiter because it seemed like he was no where to be found half of the dinner.

Food here is delicious. Service was a tiny bit slow but super friendly and it was a very busy lunch period. Prices have gone up since the pandemic. Still, a really good friendly place where you know you'll get good food. Also, ate outside so flying insects here and there. Not sure how to deal with that.

I've only eaten at Serafina 105 once for dinner, when my broccoli rabe side dish was too salty. I preferred my brunch experience, particularly the food and service.

Had the Brunch Bruschetta, which was superb - except that the toast was over-toasted to the degree that even a steak knife (which I needed to request) had a very hard time cutting it into pieces!

I normally don’t write reviews, but I had such a wonderful experience at Serafina today. I took my boyfriend out for a Birthday lunch, and we had the best time. From the moment we walked in the hostess was so warm and inviting, and the waiter took great care of us. We started with the prosciutto and burrata, which was so creamy and delicious, as well as the truffle pasta and gnocchi, which was heavenly. It reminded me of what I had in Italy a few years back. We had a nice glass of red wine and finished with some cheesecake, which was so tasty.

Serafina to me is one of those places that you can go for any occasion and you won’t be disappointed. In general I think it’s a great for family/friends get together based on the portion sizes and ambiance.

The host spilt wine all over my dress and didn’t even notice until I pointed no out. The manager came over much later and was arrogant and told me that mistakes happen. She apologised but offered me nothing more. It was embarrassing in front of our guests who we took to lunch. This experience ruined my lunch and I will never go back to this location.

The gelato and pizza were great. However, the pasta was bland and lacked flavour (we ordered penne a la vodka and spaghetti carbonara). The service was also slow and our waiter was inattentive. We had to wait forever for our check despite trying to waive him down to us.

This was my first time dining at Serafina 105, and I had the most wonderful experience. The dining room is beautiful and very welcoming. The mista salad was excellent. The homemade fettucine with tomato cream sauce was out of this world. And the tiramisu was nothing short of phenomenal. I can't wait to go back for another amazing meal.

We really enjoyed a recent meal in the outdoor seating area of Serafina 105. Service was prompt and good. The food was very tasty, though pasta dishes were a little on the heavy side. The meatballs, bruschetta, and the buratta appetizers were very good. Eating on most NYC sidewalks can be noisy, but it wasn't too bad (it was a Tuesday evening). Serving sizes were healthy, so the fact that we had leftovers for lunch is appreciated.

Always a pleasant experience at Serafina 105. Prices are fare and food is nicely prepared.
The service is excellent and servers always ready to be friendly and helpful. One of the best choices on UWS for a affordable lunch or dinner. Outdoor service is comfortable and nicely designed.
