We were seated in the outside space... which was heated and quite as we were the only ones sitting there initially. The food was absolutely amazing... there was a fish I was interested in but not on the menu and they were able to accommodate me immediately. The best part was the dessert... we had the best Tiramisu I have ever had ❤️

Our waiter was unpleasant. Would not acquiesce to any special requests. And, instead of saying, "No, I'm sorry we cannot do that," or "I'm so sorry, the chef does not take special requests," he just said, "No." That is just not good service. Though the food was good, I would not visit the restaurant again.

Typical Italian food offerings. Food is good. Pasta and marinara sauce very tasty. Called to make reservations on Tuesday & Wednesday - no call back - restaurant closed those days. Booked on Open Table and all was good.

I have dined at Serafina numerous times and usually order the spaghetti squash, as I choose to eat a vegan entree. This time is seemed less tasty than on visits in the past...I'm not able to say why, but perhaps the sauce left something to be desired. The salad however, was excellent, an excellent mix of lettuce, tomato, avocado, corn, but the bread was dry, not warmed, and basically tasteless.

My friends and I had a great meal at Serafina East Hampton. The restaurant boasts a lively atmosphere with a friendly and attentive staff. The food was excellent, especially the linguini with clam sauce. Will be back!

Pizza’s were excellent, including the robiola calzone, however my wife’s vegetarian pasta was really awful, the vegetables were completely uncooked. One of the worst meals I’ve ever seen at an Italian restaurant.

Great service, Tamara, who had served us before was again super and recommended the porcini ravioli (after we asked for a reco) which was delicious and we had the shrimp, avocado salad, one of our favorites and a margarita pizza, always a staple here.
Great drinks and not too loud, we didn't feel rushed, which often happens in the Hamptons in the summer and look forward to returning soon.

The food was good but the service was terrible. Our waiter was nowhere to be found. We had to ask for our drinks and bread for the table. He never came back to see if everything was good. We had to ask other waiters for help.

We sat inside with an early seating so it was still quiet. The food was very good the pasta is home made but while no one else at the table had issues with the serving size my dish had only seven mini raviolis and that's it! For the Hampton's the price was pretty reasonable. Service was very quick and very attentive. As a side note, I could see a lot of people had ordered takeout from here but the kitchen was not bogged down.

Waited 45-50 min for my res, hostess too young and naive seated walk ins before people with reservation, older manager yelling at patrons for being angry for seating walk ins and making us with reservations wait 45 min for our table. Waitstaff was excellent and food good and reliable but we are not in italy so good for American Italian. Experience would be best off season and or weekdays. To be fair weekends in the Hamptons across the board is horrible at every restaurant in August, unless you slip in cash to manager

I get it...it’s summer in the hamptons. That doesn’t mean you should quadruple book tables to accommodate the crowds. We had a reservation for 7:45 and waited one hour for our table—of course, we, like everyone else, was told “your table is almost ready. The guests are leaving soon. It should be about ten minutes.” PS—the “guests” at the table hadn’t even been served dinner yet and this “excuse” was given to everyone who had a reservation for dinner. Fast forward an hour when we finally sat for dinner and there was a rowdy group of millennials dropping the f-word (extremely loud) in every sentence they shouted. The tables with families around us were furious. The food was not even edible! Basic spaghetti pomodoro tasted like something from the Dead Sea! They rushed to serve the food that they must have thrown the pasta into an overly salted pot of water. The ravioli was undercooked and disgusting. In the end, the wine cost more than the meal, the management is poor and I would have been happier going elsewhere. Lesson learned.

We had a party of eight for a early Saturday family dinner, We had ordered eight entrees including three entree pizzas.
Five of the entrees came out promptly, but the pizza oven was backed up with orders, and three of us waited almost 40 minutes for the pizzas to be eventually served. By that time, everyone else was finished with dinner while those three were just starting theirs.

To their benefit, Serafina did take the pizzas off our check, but the entire dining experience was very sub par.

They don't disappoint! We can always count on a good meal at good prices with good service. Chairs were a little uncomfortable on the outside terrace- but they can be put up with for what you get!
