Serafina is known uptown for its self-proclaimed “fabulous pizza” and in a large landmark building downtown, Serafina on Lafayette turns out the same uncomplicated fare to largely the same crowd. There are a few exotic dishes, like pizza al caviale, with boiled sliced potatoes, crème fraiche and caviar, but most of the ingredients are ones you’re intimately familiar with. Pastas like tagliolini di Cortina (mushrooms, peas, chicken and a touch of cream) taste fresh and pizzas like the Caprino (goat cheese, mozzarella, arugula, red peppers and roasted eggplant) are crisp and yummy. The large size and unoriginal décor are reminiscent of a really nice mall restaurant, and the abundance of tourists makes the experience feel not so unique. But as far as providing a menu that has something for everyone (everyone who likes Italian food, that is), Serafina delivers.
