    The restaurant was quiet during our visit. We were well looked after by the waitress, and were given plenty of time for our meal. The food was good, we ordered from both the al la Carte & brunch menu. I’d recommend Sarafina to families with young children in particular, as we felt comfortable being there with 6month old twins.

    After hearing good things about this restaurant we were all disappointed with our meal. Very rich, over-reduced sauces. Lost the freshness we were looking for. Small portions, with all sides extra. Made for an expensive meal. Not enough waitresses for the tables. Our waitress, although very pleasant, was always rushed and in a hurry, giving one the impression you had to make your mind up quickly. Not likely to return any time soon.

    Lovely relaxed atmosphere and pleasant staff. Everything delivered with a smile. The food is much nicer than the average Italian and better value. I had risotto last time and it was delicious. There are also lighter meals too. Good for me who would otherwise struggle with 3 courses. The salads are also lovely and fresh and the pizzas not doughy and an interesting selection of toppings. Good wine list and a couple of cocktails on the list.

    Service and food quality were great - no complaints. Pity there was a table with a large number of people enjoying themselves too much by singing at the table which spoilt the ambience.....maybe the manager could have asked them to reduce the noise level a bit?

    we were six slightly boisterous adults late saturday afternoon celebrating a 60th with dinner before heading into Manchester to a gig. All agreed the food was the best we had eaten "out" for a long long time and we are all regular restaurant visitors, the service was perfect, the waitress could not have been more helpful and cheerful and our visit could not be faulted in any way. Thank you for both food and service of the highest order.

    Modern twist on high quality Italian food. My fish dish was delicious, perfectly cooked and impeccably served with excellent broccoli and spinach, two vegetables seldom presented at their best. My only criticism would be the bread used for the Bruschetta; good sourdough is widely available in the area now - not from the supermarkets- and makes all the difference to the texture of this classic nibble. Overall very good and pleasant attentive service without being intrusive.

    Top marks all round. When they first started I thought some pasta plates were on the small side, but they seem to have addressed that. The tempura prawn starter is of Michelin star quality. Highly recommended.

    Our first visit to this well recommended restaurant was up to expectations. The five of us were unanimous in our approval of the quality of the food notwithstanding that one or two dishes were slightly overpriced. Table service by very pleasant staff was acceptable despite slight delay in delivering starter courses. Will dertainly return and recommend.

    The ambiance was lovely and the staff very friendly and attentive. Our risotto starter was very nice. Sadly both of our main courses came covered sauces so rich as to make them unpalatable- tenderloin of lamb and brill totally over-powered. In particular the brill was unrecognisable as a lovely delicate piece of fish. I understand that the food here is excellent but on our visit the chef had a very heavy touch when it came to his / her sauces. However, lots of lovely dishes in the menu and would give it another go if in the area.

    I picked this restaurant because it was close to the airport and we were staying overnight for an early morning flight. I have to say I was really astounded at the quality and flavor of the food - I had a pan fried gnocchi which has to be amongst the best I’ve ever head. I would highly recommend

    Dined with the family on a Saturday evening and had superb food. Some of the items are expensive- kids pizzas are pricey and the cost of a “shot” of lemoncello eye-watering, but very tasty food. Overall really good experience!

    We tried Sarafina a number of years ago but weren't impressed. It then got lost, for us, as there are a lot of restaurants in the area to choose from. Then, on the recommendation of friends, we tried it again - fantastic! It's now a regular for us - the specials in particular are innovative, delicious and excellent value for money. Service is always friendly, knowlegeable and efficient. Top restaurant - really glad retook our friends advice as things do change.
