Llegamos 5 mins antes de nuestra reservación y nos dijeron que ya estaba cerrado el lugar, que no podían atendernos, había gente todavía sentada en las mesas y cocineros. Pedí hablar con el gerente pero me dijeron que No estaba.
Simplemente nos fuimos a otro lugar.

We frequent Serafina often, especially since Covid and eating outside. Food is always good and servers very attentive.
Love the pasta with seafood and the salad with shrimp and white beans is excellent.
My only complaint is that they do not serve bread while waiting for the food. They used to but stopped for some unknown reason. The only alternative is to order bruschetta - 4 little pieces for $10, which isn’t right. A nice basket with warm bread & olive oil... really missing
That’s why I have only 4 stars for value.

Serafina staff is always pleasant to see & deal with. They go out of their way for their customers. Because of this I chose to eat there a minimum of 1-2 times per week. The chefs are on point with the specials.

Celebrating my husbands 30thb day. We opted out to share a pizza which we didn’t finish. It was delicious we had lemon drop drinks. They were pretty strong but costs $28. Service was excellent needed help finding the place and the guy stayed on the phone until we arrived. Really a nice experience

Food was really delicious, the only thing I don’t like to much was the prosciutto slice was so thin and pasta don’t was al dente. About the service is not top notch as you aspect for the place and quality of food, server don’t change dirty plate between appetizers and the second choice of appetizer. Second very important mistake was bring the main course when all of us at the table still eating the appetizers, look like eat, pay and go away.
Last think was the tips are calculated on the total with taxes!!!! WHICH IS ILLEGAL, you don’t want pay tips based on the taxes right? I will think about to recommend or come back to this restaurant

We went to Serafina in Aventura for a Fathers Day lunch. The waitress was very helpful and attentive. We started with a Bianca pizza with truffle oil and truffles. It was amazingly good. I had Rigatoni with a bolognese sauce and my dining companions had a salad with arugula and a side of shrimp and Cannelloni beans in a light sauce. Both dishes were excellent. Definitely a great place to dine.

They are complying with precautions, beginning with taking our temperatures prior to being seated. The restaurant became full during our dining there, I'm guessing tables had been repositioned or a number of them removed prior to reopening to represent their 50% of their original capacity. Our server was very nice, just took a while for him to take our food order once we ordered a drink and appetizer. All staff were wearing masks and gloves, don't know how often they are actually changing gloves. The meatballs and chicken parmesan were very filling potions and the ravioli in the butter sauce tasted good, but tasted more like I was just consuming a mouthful of oil. Ambiance is very nice, overall experience was good, would try different entrees next time.

Just reopened for dining, approached by the manger where he refused to seat us outside claiming that we did not request it , even though we were willing to wait a bit , but he said waiting about at least one hour , we decided to sit inside watching the outside tables. And in less than ten minutes there was 3 tables available , Approached by 2 waiters each says I will come to you soon. , our drinks order was taken by the third waiter and waited 20 min for a wine , waited another 15 min to Order our dinner which was salad , pasta, steak . We had to call the manger after 30 min to ask where is the salad ?? Basically we are there for more than 1+ 1/2 hr , the steak was cold and smeared with dark sauce that has no flavor , the pasta we asked for the shrimp to be on the side. , what they did they took the shrimp from the pasta dish and put it on a separate small ball , I noticed one of the waiters taking a plate from deferent table Assuming is not used and the customer just left , took the plate and put it on another table without washing ( not sanitary at all). Will not go again nor I will ask for take out. Till they put their head on their shoulder

Food is very good I had the bucatini carbonara and I have to say it has been the best I had in years! Unless I’m in italy. Italian restaurants in the states do not know how to make it. Serafina impress me. The wine list is also very good. I think they just have to improve a little in their service. Tables should not been untended for more than 10 min. My table took more than that. I do understand that Weekends are crazy busy but if this is the case the restaurant should bring in more help. Overall is a great restaurant.

The table-side Cacio e Pepe was to die for. Making the meal in front of us in the wheel of aged parmigiano reggiano was a uniquely cool experience that we weren’t expecting. The chef clearly took pride in what he made for us and the results were incredible. Highly recommend!

Birthday lunch with 8 people, service was great, most dishes excellent, but burgers significantly undercooked. This is the second time in one week we were served undercooked dishes. Noise level inside is off the charts.

Thank you so much for your review and Happy belated birthday! We are so pleased you celebrated your special day with us! We are happy you enjoyed your meal with us and we apologize your meat was not cooked to preference. We, in fact, are a very energetic, peppy space indeed, I always recommend the terrace as the decibels are a little more sensitive, plus, its very pretty. We look forward to seeing you again. Thank you!

I would say the food was very well done. Not a disappointment. We both ordered a house specialization table side.
However, the poor part of the experience was that no bread was provided unless you place a large order. This was brought up half way through our lunch.
Part of the experience of a true Italian restaurant is the bread. To not have this served and to make it as option is just not appropriate. Bread is inexpensive and to make it where you have to pay for it is insulting.
For this reason I would not return to the restaurant. I brought this to the attention of the waiter and the manager in a nice respectful manner. The manager stated they had a special meeting about the bread. I can only say to have a special meeting over bread smacks of cheapness and pettiness. I presume the owner is not Italian, if he is Italian he should be embarrassed.
