The best Italian restaurant for casual dining. There are several Serafinas in NYC, the food is always consistently good. Make sure to try the Focaccia Di Sofia, crispy on the outside and soft cheese with truffle oil on the inside. Nice grilled fish selection too. Kid friendly, cool vibe, music, families, single people--something for everyone.

The goat cheese salad and the pizzas are wonderful! The decor is also very classy italian. It is worth it to give your Manolo's a rest from Madison and stop in here for a great pizza!

Serafina has been, is, and will continue to be a Madison Ave/Eastside institution. And it should be. It is pleasant and inviting place, particularly the upper room. The food while not knocking anyone socks off, is solid and flavorful. Service can be spotty. Overall a decent place for lunch or a light dinner.

very Chic and New York!

Food was very tasty. My only gripe is that the waiter didn't ask if we needed refills and unfortunatly, we were thirsty for more water. Everything else was good. The atmosphere is very chic and fresh for a nice afternoon lunch after shopping. The place was very busy and noisy but we got in right away and were seated. Price wise, expensive, but it is after all NY and most places we ate at were around the same prices as this restaurant.

Nothing special

Just had dinner here. While the ambiance is nice and the food is pretty good it was nothing to write home about and I wouldn't go out of your way to take people here on a special occasion. I ordered the swordfish special and it was a weird thin cut of fish with no sides, only some cherry tomatoes. The other entrees the people I was with ordered were ok, but stingy on the potatoes and side dishes. And no Italian bread for starters!

  • No, I would not go back!

The food was medicore, and the service horrible! They kept complaining about the need to turn over the tables in front of us when we were done in under 30 minutes. They never refilled water and even tried to take my plate away before my husband's dinner was brought out! To add insult, we went to the bathroom and they moved all of us our things away from the table and on the floor!
