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!

We went for "Opera Night" and had a wonderful time. Our guests were just thrilled with the evening.

A friend and I chose the Upper West side Serafina for lunch. We were told the squash spaghetti would have many vegetables and there were almost no extra vegetables and it was almost tasteless. The pizza we were told would be a crisp thin crust. It was thin but hardly crisp. It was difficult to hold it in hand because it was so gooey. So the food was disappointing. Service was good.

Had a lovely meal outside at Serafina. Even though we had a reservation, it took a while to seat us (they seem understaffed). But once we were at the table, everyone was lovely and attentive. Food was delicious, but a bit pricey. Still, if you're looking for a nice evening out I recommend the restaurant, and outdoor seating is plentiful if you're not yet ready to eat indoors.

We had a nice Mother’s Day dinner that was enjoyed by everyone . The food was very good while the service was average since it was a busy day . The staff were pleasant and helpful as they turned on the outside heater as it got a bit rainy and cold . Overall it was an enjoyable day !

The food is always interesting and satisfying. I had the spinach and goat cheese salad, and it was wonderful. Passed up an opportunity to have the lobster ravioli, which is one of my favorites here. Serafina is a great neighborhood choice; I highly recommend it.

The Octopus salad and the Calamari were amazing and the Fillet Mignon was exactly how I love it--medium-rare, although I did not care for the gravy. The service was great, our server was very attentive to our needs and gave us very good suggestions and recommendations.

We had my birthday dinner at Serafina. The food was awesome I love their rigatoni bolognese!! My wife had the filet mignon which was cooked perfectly and equally yummy! This is my first choice for my birthday. The restaurant had excellent COVID safety protocols. We ate inside for the first time in a year.

Corner location is prime and great; easy to get to and locate, w/outdoor dining. We happened to dine on an evening with musical accompaniment (Puccini was ever present)! The food was lovely (I had the goat cheese and spinach salad) to begin, and the lobster ravioli served in lobster sauce as my main. Yummy on both counts! Great and ample wine selection, as well.

The waiting staff was accommodating, professional and courteous; we were promptly seated, menus delivered and discussed - and we took it from there. Will certainly recommend.

The best part about my family brunch was the bartender and the wonderful spicy margaritas he made. Otherwise, Serafina is not what it used to be.
The prices are ridiculous. The portions are small considering the large prices. Food wasn’t well seasoned. Almost bland. They charge extra for any changes you want to make. The server seemed very rushed - the place was almost empty.

Great experience with the restaurant, a bit expensive but I had expected it to be so. Food was delicious, as long as you don’t mind a few NY moments happening around you then you’ll be fine. Thumbs up!

The ambience was great. Jazz was playing in the background and at a certain point, the lights dimmed. It was a nice experience and the food was delicious. Their selection of wines also varied so it kept things interesting.

the new outdoor set up is superior and I look forward to it lasting for years. generally, continues to be a useful, low-key neighborhood spot and when we get the bar back, I'll be back at the bar. :)

We went on Valentine’s Day and it wasn’t busy at all it was very hard to get a server to come over to us or get us anything my dish came out wrong which was Penny vodka with chicken which shouldn’t be that hard they forgot to add the cheese I eat all over the place and this was very disappointing as there are several locations
