Great food. High quality ingredients and simple recipes typical of the italian cuisine.
Fantastic authentic Italian food! Excellent wine and cocktails. Love the bar area as well as the outdoor seating. A lovely evening! So happy to find a place that actually feels like I’m dining in Italy.
Even though we had an outdoor reservation, the only table left was one right next to where the wait staff stood, I guess the service area, so it was a very awkward spot. They should have actually had a decent spot saved for us. We arrived 10 minutes early but it looked like others had recently arrived as well.
Delicious pasta, absolutely perfect! Great service!
Good food, drinks, and service. Great for a night out with friends, especially with the new outdoor seating.
Food and service was amazing as usual
Had a wonderful experience, the ravioli and truffle pasta were wonderful. I had an aperol spritz and espresso martini, absolute perfection. And the tiramisu is to die for. Our server was lovely and patient while we had trouble choosing from so many great choices. The ambiance and aesthetic is an A++
Many thanks for a memorable and lovely evening!
Inexpensive Italian food on Boston’s trendiest street. Pizza was a standout, but the entrees suffered from over-salting. Service was
We got the truffle fries, gnocchi, spinach ravioli, and aglio e olio. Everything tasted great except for the AEO, which had no salt and was a bit dry. We had to ask the woman at the front desk for cheese and salt because our server didn’t check in with us until we were almost done with our meals. We were seated outside and even though we were on the street the noise level was totally fine.
Was served dirty silverware twice- and waiter did not even apologize!
I love eating at Serafina! The food is great and the ambiance excellent.
Our server Juan was 110% he was so lovely, patient, efficient, and helpful. Amazing service makes for an amazing experience.
Again amazing service as usual
The bolognaise was delicious! The wine was yummy! And the server was great! Made for a wonder night !
One of the best restaurants in Boston, the service is unbeatable. The whole staff is amazing
Waiter was rushing us
Great outdoor eating experience with excellent service and food!
Amazing pear martini
Amazing! Great service and delicious food...The outdoor experience is awesome . A must eat at place.
Our meal was outstanding. The restaurant is in a cheerfully decorated basement level area, and there is a lovely outdoor seating area.
Beautiful place to eat outside on Newbury Street. The flatbread pizza was delicious!
Great neighborhood restaurant; friendly, great service, nice choices.
It was great.
Keep up the good work. Thanks for serving us :) Stay save!
Amazing food and service! We love this Back Bay gem. Always a delight
Great food and service
Great food - Great service. Hostess was very warm
My boyfriend and I were not approached by a waiter for 40 minutes. We waited very long after finishing our salads to order our meals and were without drinks for most of our time there.
Casual ambiance. Service was excellent and the food even better.
Nice casual dining and good food
The spot in the Back bay is very casual, good for a first date. Good service, good food.
I loved it
Definitely not a place for a nice dinner unless your looking for cheap night out . Not what I anticipated
Great lunch place but nothing more . With all the great restaurants that Boston has to offer this was definitely a mistake on my part. Live and learn!
Service was amazing
If I knew that this was a large chain beforehand I wouldn’t have dined at Serafina. It is what you’d expect from a place like Olive Garden but with a higher price tag. I was craving cacio e pepe and saw they had it on their menu. Don’t waste your time! It was watery and lacked any flavor. There are many other restaurants in Boston with superb cacio e pepe. We actually left after a few bite to go to a different higher quality restaurant. In all fairness, my boyfriend’s shrimp pasta wasn’t that bad, the cinnamon hot toddy was great, and the waitstaff was quick and attentive.
Had a great lunch outside in the sun. Great service, great food. They immediately got a heat lamp out for us when we arrived which was just perfect for a cold December day. All round lovely!
The food is tasty and portions are good. Ricardo’s service is amazing. BTW their Barolo is divine - paired with their truffle fries and burger was simple yet fabulous!
LOVED our server, the food and the atmosphere! Tons of gluten free options, will definitely be back!
We were sat outside next to a giant HVAC machine of some sort and near the inside door so servers kept going in and out trying to get by. I ordered a salad to start before my main meal and the server didn't ask what size so automatically ordered me the big one that was huge. I was disappointed once I got the bill to learn this. The food was okay nothing special. The atmosphere was good distanced otherwise. I probably wouldn't recommend or return.
