Nice place for a classic Italian dinner in Meatpacking district. Great ambiance upstairs and large portions for pasta dishes.

The service and the food were excellent. We made a last minute reservation on OpenTable and didn't have to wait long for our table to be ready.

Everything about the restaurant was quite good except they put a mom with two screaming kids on the same floor as a few business lunch groups. I'm not sure why they did that as I thought for sure they would have put them on another floor. They may have been "regulars" as the waitress seemed to know them. In which case, they should certainly know better.
I would recommend this restaurant, but maybe make a request for an area so you can have a business lunch conversation. I failed to do so and paid the price.

Very disappointing. Overpriced for poor food quality. Presentation of the food is not nice either. Fortunately we had a great waiter.

The host who was apparently the manager was EXTREMELY rude. We had a reservation for 9 people which I had called a few days earlier to confirm and she had told us that it was booked under 8 and that now we would have to wait and that it would be “tight” as she proceeded to roll her eyes. I can’t believe she is the manager. Once we were seated we were next to a large party that were all clearly wasted. I felt like I was at a sports bar and the super bowl was playing..... we will NEVER be coming back. The only positive part was our waiter, Luis. He was amazing and very accommodating.

We shared the fried brussels sprouts as an appetizer and they were quite delicious.
We then had different pastas dishes that were all consistently tasty, cooked to perfection and in generous portions, perfect for a main dish. I would definitely go back and recommend to friends and family.

Unless someone told you Serafina was a chain, you wouldn’t know. This particular location has a true charm and ambiance to it that is hard to find in such a trendy part of the city. It was a bit noisy on a Saturday night, but I could still hear the person across from me just fine. The menu is standard Italian fare; I had penne alla vodka, and my friend the farfalle al limoncello. We had calamari to start; the dish is quite generous and the calamari here are always good. The sauce is a bit spicier than most calamari sauces but it was tasty nonetheless. The menu does say it is a spicy tomato dip, so no qualms there. My penne alla vodka was rich and had the appropriate amount of sauce (generous, but not drowning in it); with a bit of parmesan added on top, it made for a great dish. My friend’s farfalle tasted a bit too much of lemon, but other than that it was also a solid meal. The service was very good- our waiter was attentive, but didn’t hover either, and the food came in a timely manner. I will be back here again for my next Italian dinner in the meatpacking district.

The service was nice, just the end of the service was interrupted by the manager Marina. She was quite rude to the employees and made all of us feel uncomfortable. The service and the waiter were great, until this incident.
In the future we will go to one of the other locations.

Surprisingly moderate prices and fine Italian food in Meatpacking District. Good happy hour wine and prices. Lovely ambiance and low noise level. We totally enjoyed our pizza starter, lasagna, and orechiette. We came here on the recommendation of a Whitney Museum employee, and he did not steer us wrong. Go!

There was nothing special about our Saturday lunch experience, just pretty good food at reasonable prices in the hot area close to The Whitney Museum. This is a casual bar/restaurant on several floors overlooking the small square in the Meatpacking district. It was just what we were looking for.

Overall my meal was fine, but I much prefer the tribeca location of serafina. This one left something to be desired and it felt like the waiter wanted us to move it along while we still had food in front of us...
