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!

The host didn’t realize we were waiting at the door. Our server was inattentive. The food we ordered took a long time and was very bland. The drinks were just ok.

Wonderful attentive staff, food good (grilled bronzino fish a bit dry) ambiance pleasant on a block that has a welcome celebratory atmosphere, colored lights down the street.

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.

Kind of a bland experience. Service was not bad but nobody took charge of our table as our server. When it was time for a check, I didn't know who to ask. I like to relate to a server who is responsible for taking care of you. Food was OK. Nice big salad. Pizzas were a bit under-baked, so the middle of the crust was soggy from the beginning. Mushrooms were under cooked too, so they were rubbery. The affordable section of the wine list is pretty limited. So, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't particularly good either.

We were visiting Serafina 105 for a birthday celebration. We live in the neighborhood and have dined at numerous Serafina locations, including other states and Puerto Rico. This was the WORST Serafina experience we have ever had. Our server was grossly inattentive. He was impatient when we wanted to order drinks and appetizers before the main course. We did not receive our drinks until the appetizers dropped. He also told us there was no bread in the middle of dinner service, even while other tables were served bread. When our main courses came, we asked for pepper and Parmesan for the pasta which the server did not bring until our meals were nearly completed. After we finished our mains, the server dropped the check and did not give us coffee/dessert menus for a birthday dinner!

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! There are lots of Italian options on the UWS that offer impeccable service and foster a full dining experience. Serafina 105 is NOT one of them.

Great location and it was nice to side inside to get a break from the heat! Started brunch with a White Negroni, a delicious and refreshing drink. I ordered the omelet with fontina and herbs. But what I got was an overcooked omelet with big chunks of egg, too much fontina and no herbs. The server was very gracious and brought me a separate dish of herbs, but he noted that I was still not enjoying the omelet so he offered to have another made. At that point, I wasn't interested in the omelet so he brought some scrambled eggs instead and charged me for those instead of the omelet. My husband had the lemon ricotta pancakes and they were good, and the portion was huge.

The servers were friendly and helpful, but the overall quality of the food was mediocre.

Had a surprise anniversary celebration for my parents with my siblings and it was fantastic!!! From the start they set us up with 2 options for seating which was nice to have a choice… Our waiter Carlos was beyond attentive and patient!!! My whole family loved the appetizers and entrees… I’m so happy I chose Serafina!!!

Met up with friends from out of town for the first time since COVID, and decided to try Serafina. It was a good decision. Sat outside comfortably, received excellent service, and the food was super tasty. Would definitely recommend.

We have eaten at Serafina several times, and have generally enjoyed it, but things were "off" a bit last night. Appetizer salad came without dressing; we had to ask for it when we realized the problem. Pizza was barely warm and bland in taste. Pastas were fine, however, so some of us were quite satisfied with the meal. They were busy, so perhaps that explained some of the minor issues that arose. We'll still return since on balance we have enjoyed our meals there over the last few years.
