Wonderful !

We love this place. The food is great and the staff is very pleasant. We are in Erie about once a year and Serafini's is always part of our trip. Highly recommend.

We visited Erie for a few days and were craving Italian food. We asked our hotel concierge if she knew of any good places and she recommended Serafini's. It turned out to be one of the highlights or our vacation! We liked it so much that we went back again 2 days later!! We had great service, delicious food, and... More

Yet another group dinner, this time with 9, and group dinners can be a challenge. Serafini's rose to the challenge of serving our group, and the dinner was great, but the overall atmosphere was dated and crowded. Serafini's is not what I would consider an intimate setting for an evening out with my family, rather the feeling was a little... More

We spent a few says at Presque State Park and friends said they had gone here to eat. The service was great. I think out waitress was Becky and she was wonderful. The food was not bad but just average. After we left my wife and I both said it was ok for the price. We had been to a... More

We always enjoy eating here when we visit home. I love the meatballs and meat ravioli! And, the Italian bread, it's always soft and light. I've lived many places where you can't even find Italian bread. This is one of the only restaurants I know of that serves my favorite wine, Riunite Lambrusco. It's light, fruity, refreshing, and pairs well... More

Dropped in at 9:45 and asked if we could still get service. Hostess waitress and help said no problem. Service was like you would expect anytime. Ordered a Martini along with beer and wine and all were served properly. Correct glass, chilled and prompt service. Stuffed pepper apitizer was excellent. The sause and cheese were an excellent and delicious blend.... More

Very good food, reasonable prices. As usual, I ordered traditional spaghetti, meatballs and red sauce to see how they stack up, and I will definitely return! Great family restaurant as well. The kids loved it and it is very family friendly.

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.
