We have always enjoyed Serafina Always and were pleased to discover that, after a year away, the food is still delicious and the service is friendly and efficient. The indoor dining area is nicely spaced for social distancing while still providing a nice buzz from happy diners. Ther is also a lot of outdoor dining space

It seemed like serving us was an afterthought. We had to continuously ask the bus service to call our waiter.

The food was good, we had a nice time. The ravioli could have included more pasta but less butter.

Ambiance and food were great. Service on the slow side but very courteous and accommodating. Food took a while to come out so the manager comped the app and drinks. Outdoor area was very nicely appointed, not your typical wooden structure. Calamari was tasty (not chewy) and the filet mignon in the arugula salad was cooked perfectly.

Have been there several times and has always been very good. This time was a great disappointment. Food was mediocre at best. Ill attribute this to these tough times for all restaurants but they need to try and not lose their base

We kept on asking for Lemon in out water which we never got.
We kept on asking for fresh pepper which we never got.( no pepper and no salt)
We asked for ketchup we we got when we finished our food.
We basically were ignored most of the time.
Loved the food and the sitting.
I have been going to Serafina for a very long time so I might give it another chance before I will stop dining there.

Serafina is a family fave local spot. We have dined outdoors with them several times. The indoor dining was much better in a snowstorm! Food very satisfying and service great as always.

OpenTable stated that there was a time slot available that the restaurant did not have. Very odd.. We could not sit in the outdoor shed because of this but ultimately it was a good time. Very cold though. Good service
