This is a jewel in the Crafton area. Definitely not a Pizza shop. When our server brought the glasses for our BYOB wine, I teared up. They were the same ones my grandparents used to serve wine. Our big party ordered a variety from the menu. Pasta with Gorgonzola cream sauce, awesome. Pasta Fagioli...just like home...Rita's Special Pasta...yummy. And the... More

Had not gone there for a while, still really great food but I am glad I read travelgirl105's review about the juice glasses for your BYOB because I brought my own wine glasses and would not have been happy drinking my wine out of those little tiny juice glasses. Good food though.

If you go here and don't get the Greens and Beans you should be committed! Best Greens and Beans on the planet, all authentic Italian dishes, great service and huge portions. The place is small so plan on getting reservations any weekend and most week nights.

Small quaint restaurant that has a BYOB policy. It use to be a great place to go but they did away with all of their wine glasses. Now you take your wine .. pay a cork fee.. and get a tiny juice glass.. how awful for a great wine. The food is average and the service is OK. It is... More

Best greens and beans in the city! Daily specials are always a good deal. You may have to wait for a table but it is well worth it. BYOB.

I have gone here many times - their food is all made fresh daily - no matter what I've gotten (pasta, fish, beans and greens), it has been wonderful! The inside is very small, but there is seating outside in nice weather. It is BYOB which is nice. My favorite is the roasted red pepper sauce on their pasta. They... More

Seriously. The greens and beans are just that good. Order them with some creamy polenta, and your life will be complete. But I warn you... You will crave those greens and beans regularly!

This was our first visit to Sarafinos and could not have been more disappointed. I am able to say that the service was outstanding. The wait staff was very attentive and did their job extremely well. This is however the only positive thing I am able to say. Upon entering the restaurant,. the first glance left me with the impression... More

I liked everything about this place and the food was great. I had a pizza and salad takeout and it was fabulous. I showed up a little late in the evening and the staff was very accommodating. Give them a try not to expensive either
