Italian
A beautiful building on the corner of West Broadway and Reade Street with large windows, excellent for people watching in the colder months and lovely breezes on warmer days and nights. Comforting Italian cuisine paired with excellent wines, or one of the many choices from the large bar menu cocktails and spirits.

Open for Breakfast/ Brunch, Lunch and Dinner daily.

There are a large range of pasta choices, which I love. Pastas are offered on a scale of plain, traditional to decadent and fancy. Prices are a little high, but if you are looking for a nice night out with a promising meal this is a good place to go.

Very good, nice wines. Salads are large and inventive. I like the tuna tartar and carpaccio. Ask them to hold the sauce.

We made the mistake of going to Serafina two meals in a row- a Saturday evening and Sunday for brunch. The food was quite good (albeit overpriced); however, the service was terrible- it didn't help that we ended up with the same server both times!

For our Saturday evening meal, we were never offered a kids menu (nor were we aware they had them) or crayons. We had to get up to find someone to track down our server several times throughout the meal. He was unapologetic about the extreme delays and was generally MIA. The entire meal (for which we didn't even order appetizers) took over 2 hours.

We ended up with the same server for a late brunch on Sunday- at which time we were offered a children's menu and crayons. Despite a lovely and attentive busboy, our server was again completely MIA. We had to ask two different people to find him just so we could order our drinks/food- and then had the same issue with the check. Never offered bread. I felt terrible because the busboy was doing his very best, but our server was virtually non-existent and non-apologetic.

Either they are chronically understaffed (as we were there on a Saturday early dinner and late Sunday brunc- neither of which appeared very busy) or we were unfortunate to have the same uncommunicative, absent server.

The continental breakfast from the hotel next door is served within the restaurant space.

The waitstaff and female GM were rude and not accommodating in the slightest. When asked to have the entrees brought out after the appetizers (a very fair and normal request) the dishes were all brought out together. When we alerted the waitstaff, they took the dish, only to return it to us later, cold and hardened. When we asked to speak to the GM she was rude, aggressive and walked away mid-sentence. There are far better restaurants in TriBeCa, will not give the time of day to this location again.

We had a nice, relaxing meal. The vegetable pizza was very good. We all liked our entrees, including penne a la vodka and pasta primavera. The service was good and they did not rush us despite the fact that we had to wait a while for some of the people in our group to arrive. We had a very pleasant evening.

Our group of 7 arrived for our 7:30pm reservations..our table was ready and waiting for us. The service was good and the meal well paced. We split a few pizzas as appetizers which were crisp and super tasty. Everyone ordered pastas and was very happy with their meal. One meal arrived but it was incorrect - the person ordered penne not spaghetti as listed on the menu. The waiter immediately took it back-- we thought it would take forever to bring out the correct dish, but within just few minutes a new meal came to the table! Very impressed. Overall a very enjoyable meal.

My husband and I went to Seraphina for dinner and really enjoyed it. We shared the best calamari appetizer - very lightly coated and absolutely delicious! My seafood black ink pasta was excellent , very generous serving of seafood, and my husband's pizza on a thin crust was a real treat. The next time we are in NYC we will definitely go there.

Pizza was described as having fresh basil and olives. It arrived with ONE basil leaf and three olives. If I’d known that I would have ordered the plain pizza for $3 less. Three dollars for one lousy basil leaf and three olives? Serafina can do better.

We had a reservation and ended up at the bar because there was a large party upstairs. The large party freaked everyone out. Bartender was complaining, no one seemed to know what was going on. I ordered avocado toast. I asked for no onions or tomatoes. Both were in my food and the poached eggs had egg shells in them. I probably won’t ever go back. And we had had to use a horrible bathroom.

Noise level was horrendous and deafening. Very close seating. Area is too small to accommodate diners. Very unpleasant evening. That, combined with poor service, small portions and mediocre food, will guarantee that we won't return to this neighborhood spot.

Good spot for a business breakfast. Big tables to look at documents and low noise level. Also, they don’t mind if you linger.
