Great food...but be prepared to stay a while

Serafini's has great food. The sauce is excellent, all of the Italian dishes are great, and the staff is knowledgable and friendly. They also have a nice selection of reasonably priced wines. No complaints there. But every time I have gone here it just seems like everything takes a fairly long... read more

I had lunch here recently and enjoyed it very much. Serafini's has been a consistently good restaurant for many, many years. I ordered the lunch size rigatoni with meatball as my entrée. A nice side salad and Italian bread were included. The portions are generous and very affordable. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Erie area.

By far the best meatballs in town. We often order a dozen or so takeout for work lunch. Employee at take out counter is very nice and helpful too.

This restaurant has Italian homemade items on their menu. Very good! The waitresses are all helpful and pleasant. There are large servings and almost always a leftover box to reheat the next day.

Serafini's has never disappointed me, EVER! The staff has been incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and very friendly every visit. Their prices are worth the portions, and presented very well. I remember a family visit to this is establishment when I was around 10 years old, and let me tell you, the sauce still taste the same! They pride themselves on tradition!... More

We always go to this restaurant when we go to Erie and it never disappoints. This is the place to go in Erie to get Italian food. The cost is also very reasonable and the ambience is very nice. Do yourself a favor and go there.

We visited with friends and ordered a variety of meals. Everyone was pleased with what they were served. The chicken parmesan is a favorite of mine when we dine here. As always the salad and dressing were fresh and flavorful. We had requested a round table for our reservation and when we arrived discovered we would be seated next to... More

I make me own sauce, so I'm very particular about red sauce. Their sauce is amazing. My husband had the lasagna and I had the gnocchi; both were incredible. The meatballs are also excellent. My 12 yr old daughter ,who is a very picky eater, had their fried raviolis, which she loved. She said they DIDN'T taste like the packaged... More

Stopped in Erie for 2 day work visit and and dinner at this restaurant. I ordered the breaded chicken parmesan and started with the roasted red pepper Bruschetta, it was super good and that combined with my salad was almost enough for dinner! Once my dinner came, just the right time, it was presented nicely with a side of spaghetti.... More
