Our reservation was honored on time. Our server brought us our drinks and was friendly and courteous. We did have to look for him to take our order and bring us some bread. However, our food came out shortly after. The salad was large enough for three of us to spit it for an appetizer. Our entrees were also generously portioned and tasty. Everyone especially enjoyed the eggplant lasagna. We all agreed that the service was pretty good and the food was great. We will definitely be back!

We had an burrata as an appetizer and it was very good! For dinner I had the Truffle Pizza, it’s to die for! My wife had the truffle fettuccine with shrimps and it was amazing.

We recommend it!

Cenamos muy bien, las pastas muy bien hechas al dente, comimos spaghetti y ravioles. Muy ricas cervezas tiradas.
Tardó un poco en venir la comida pero nada tremendo. El lugar es agradable. Nos gustó, volveremos.

We sat outside. It was nicely protected from the view of the Aventura Mall's parking garage and passing traffic. The food was delicious. Their meat balls were only average but everything else was really good.

The food was very good, and so was the service. I think the music was too loud. Mealtime , with friends, is a time for conversation not music, unless it is very low, soothing classical music. Conversation with other diners is the point of meeting people for lunch or dinner. "Entertainment" is not needed.

The food took forever to come out and it was terrible. The Branzino was burned on one side and it looked that was barely 4 oz. The pasta was poor as well no flavor .
Lots of employees running around but service was slow and no attention to detail. We ordered desserts canoli and Tiramisu and the size of a teaspoon. Never again

This place is a gem. Service was the best i had all year. Our server Norman was very personal and attentive. Food came out quick and all tasted exceptional. We ordered about 4 appetizers and 3 entrees for our party of 6 and made it family style for everyone to share. Im a native NYer, so to have this gem in my hometown is a gift to me. Props to Norman again for making it extra special for us. The only negative thing i would say is that a manager never stopped by the table to say hello or check on things. That's a no-no in my books when its not all that busy. Sorry managers, you get a great review, but you dropped the ball on that topic.

Went for Miami spice. Portion sizes clearly smaller. Steak was chewy but truffle fries were tasty. Salmon was cooked well but very bland. Ceviche was fresh but small portion. Eggplant was excellent. Wait staff was inattentive and water glass was left empty several times without it being refilled. We wanted tiramisu but they didn't have any left, so we got the pistachio gelato instead and only have one small scoop. It was okay.

Food was ok . Service was horrible. Arrived on time for my 6:45 reservation , was seated and at 7:30 still no waiter approached us to serve us water. Finally had to flag someone down to serve water and place our order. Took about an hour to get our food, which was just ok. My guest and I did not have another hour to waste so we ended up heading somewhere else for desert.

Conveniently located inside the mall on the upper level. Graciously greeted by the hostess. We chose to sit outside and were given a corner table under a fan, which was nice on a humid evening. Very few patrons seated outside. I was expecting to be a bit neglected since the place was busy inside. Our server was attentive the whole evening, and checked on us regularly. Had a few special requests during our meal which they accommodated. The Rose wine was very good! I ordered a pepperoni pizza, which was very stingy on the pepperoni. But otherwise tasted good.

The Miami Spice menu is delicious. There was an event the day we scheduled and we were unaware of this until we got to the restaurant. So seating was 'outside' and it was VERY noisy. A bit tough to chat and catch up without leaning into the table. It was also VERY crowded. If I leaned back in my chair I could hear the conversation in the table behind ours. The fact that it's located inside a mall doesn't help. And the food was good.

Das Restaurant Serafina liegt im ersten Stockwerk der Shopping Mall „Aventura Mall“. Das Essen ist super authentisch und schmeckt wie von Mama. Das Personal versteht sich sehr gut untereinander und ist sehr freundlich und aufmerksam. Das beste italienische Essen ausserhalb von Italien.
