    Made reservations for 4 at 6pm on Saturday evening noting “outside seating weather permitting”. Arrived 1/2 hour early, beautiful weather and were seated outside. Good outstanding Carpaccio Tartufo Nero, Sea Bass, Spaghetti Carbonara, Bolognese Ziti, Salad with Goat Cheese all excellent. Very hot day 90s and first Peroni Beers came tepid BUT waiter put next round bottles on ice and these were perfect!

    Very poor service at the midtown Broadway location. Not a single smile from our waiter who only visited our table to take our order and deliver the check (which we had to request from another waiter). Food was good, though.

    All was good. I didn’t like my chicken salad but that is personal taste, I guess. I liked all ingredients but put together, it didn’ t work for me. The pizza is good. Branzi no baked in parchment paper is a winner. Service was very good and accommodating , friendly, and we weren’t rushed. Outdoor patio works well. Hostess Caroline very helpful. Thanks

    This is one of my favorite places to eat when I visit NYC. The pasta sauces are delicious, salads fresh and the bread is good. The red wine list by the glass needs an improvement but overall wonderful. Looking forward to my next visit.

    Food and drinks were great! We started of with the calamari , split a Caesar salad, had our entrees which included lobster ravioli and farfalle and shrimp with a lemon sauce. Since it was my daughter's 23rd birthday, we ended with dessert. I had the affogato and my daughter had the chocolate hazelnut cake. My daughter top all of this off with an espresso martini. The whole experience was amazing. It was a great way to celebrate. The server could have been a little more attentive.

    The staff is overwhelmed at noon because of pre-matinee patrons. The food was tasty enough, but portions small. How can a restaurant run out of coffee? Coffee cups? I guess understaffing.

    Honestly, this location should be shut down. Every other location is magnificent, but everything from the managers, the host, the servers, the cook, wait staff are all miserable, and it really kills Serefina, it is closest to me - but I will never go here again its terrible. I actually loathe everyone who works there, cause they are THAT terrible.

    Went there for my sister birthday last night, the atmosphere is amazing and the service was awesome. Our server and busboys were highly attentive. The food wasn’t good at all, unfortunately. The calamari were salty even after we asked to remake them and the Brussels sprouts were burned. Cacio E Pepe and Formaggi pizza were just ok.

    OK Italian food in the West 50s close to City Center, so it's convenient for mid-town theaters and relatively inexpensive compared to many other places in the area. The meatballs and goat cheese & spinach salad appetizers were pretty good. The pastas were VERY al dente--to the point of almost being crunchy. I lived in Italy for 2 years, so I know what al dente is supposed to taste like--and Safarina's version was not it. The ice cream dessert with fresh fruit almost made up for the disappointing pastas. The atmosphere is quite nice, with one especially beautiful mural on the wall. And the attractive space is divided into a number of separate seating areas. But inattentive service and mediocre food make it a place I won't be rushing back to anytime soon.

    Our party liked Serafina Broadway very much. The only quibble is that we went before a matinee and it was very busy there. There were plenty of servers, who were very accommodating, but it was still a bit worrisome to make it out on time for the show. Otherwise, recommended!

    I love Serafina in Tribeca, but experience last night at 55/Broadway was not as good. For example, the waiter asked if we needed anything else (signal to leave) before our food had even arrived. When the food arrived, the server knocked over a glass of water in my friends entree, and then asked if he could bring him more water. When my friend asked a question about the salad, the server did not understand English. I would say the service was a bit disorganized. however the food was good, which is the main thing.
