Serafina Restaurant Group was conceived when Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato made a pact while traumatically lost at sea. The two friends agreed to open a restaurant serving the best pizza and pasta in the world if they were to survive the ordeal. In 1995, they fulfilled their promise by launching the highly acclaimed Serafina Fabulous Pizza. Following the success of their first location, they have gone on to open numerous locations worldwide!

In 2008, they opened Brasserie Cognac in the Theater District where Chef Florian V. Hugo, a great-great-great grandson of poet Victor Hugo, serves fine French cuisine. Vittorio and Fabio energetically guarantee comfort, excitement and fabulous food at every location!

Always a pleasant experience at Serafina 105. Prices are fare and food is nicely prepared.
The service is excellent and servers always ready to be friendly and helpful. One of the best choices on UWS for a affordable lunch or dinner. Outdoor service is comfortable and nicely designed.

Kind of a bland experience. Service was not bad but nobody took charge of our table as our server. When it was time for a check, I didn't know who to ask. I like to relate to a server who is responsible for taking care of you. Food was OK. Nice big salad. Pizzas were a bit under-baked, so the middle of the crust was soggy from the beginning. Mushrooms were under cooked too, so they were rubbery. The affordable section of the wine list is pretty limited. So, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't particularly good either.

We were visiting Serafina 105 for a birthday celebration. We live in the neighborhood and have dined at numerous Serafina locations, including other states and Puerto Rico. This was the WORST Serafina experience we have ever had. Our server was grossly inattentive. He was impatient when we wanted to order drinks and appetizers before the main course. We did not receive our drinks until the appetizers dropped. He also told us there was no bread in the middle of dinner service, even while other tables were served bread. When our main courses came, we asked for pepper and Parmesan for the pasta which the server did not bring until our meals were nearly completed. After we finished our mains, the server dropped the check and did not give us coffee/dessert menus for a birthday dinner!

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! There are lots of Italian options on the UWS that offer impeccable service and foster a full dining experience. Serafina 105 is NOT one of them.

Great location and it was nice to side inside to get a break from the heat! Started brunch with a White Negroni, a delicious and refreshing drink. I ordered the omelet with fontina and herbs. But what I got was an overcooked omelet with big chunks of egg, too much fontina and no herbs. The server was very gracious and brought me a separate dish of herbs, but he noted that I was still not enjoying the omelet so he offered to have another made. At that point, I wasn't interested in the omelet so he brought some scrambled eggs instead and charged me for those instead of the omelet. My husband had the lemon ricotta pancakes and they were good, and the portion was huge.

The servers were friendly and helpful, but the overall quality of the food was mediocre.

Had a surprise anniversary celebration for my parents with my siblings and it was fantastic!!! From the start they set us up with 2 options for seating which was nice to have a choice… Our waiter Carlos was beyond attentive and patient!!! My whole family loved the appetizers and entrees… I’m so happy I chose Serafina!!!

Met up with friends from out of town for the first time since COVID, and decided to try Serafina. It was a good decision. Sat outside comfortably, received excellent service, and the food was super tasty. Would definitely recommend.

We have eaten at Serafina several times, and have generally enjoyed it, but things were "off" a bit last night. Appetizer salad came without dressing; we had to ask for it when we realized the problem. Pizza was barely warm and bland in taste. Pastas were fine, however, so some of us were quite satisfied with the meal. They were busy, so perhaps that explained some of the minor issues that arose. We'll still return since on balance we have enjoyed our meals there over the last few years.

A friend and I chose the Upper West side Serafina for lunch. We were told the squash spaghetti would have many vegetables and there were almost no extra vegetables and it was almost tasteless. The pizza we were told would be a crisp thin crust. It was thin but hardly crisp. It was difficult to hold it in hand because it was so gooey. So the food was disappointing. Service was good.

Had a lovely meal outside at Serafina. Even though we had a reservation, it took a while to seat us (they seem understaffed). But once we were at the table, everyone was lovely and attentive. Food was delicious, but a bit pricey. Still, if you're looking for a nice evening out I recommend the restaurant, and outdoor seating is plentiful if you're not yet ready to eat indoors.

The food is always interesting and satisfying. I had the spinach and goat cheese salad, and it was wonderful. Passed up an opportunity to have the lobster ravioli, which is one of my favorites here. Serafina is a great neighborhood choice; I highly recommend it.

The Octopus salad and the Calamari were amazing and the Fillet Mignon was exactly how I love it--medium-rare, although I did not care for the gravy. The service was great, our server was very attentive to our needs and gave us very good suggestions and recommendations.
