We ate a Serafina because it was convenient to where we were in NYC. We didn't have the time for high end, formal dining & this place is casual. The food is pretty good. My wife had the black truffle pasta, which she liked but it had too much oil. I had the tuna & salmon tartare app & the... More

Friendly staff and great food. Loved their tricolore salad, tuna carpaccio and tartar, pasta is great and pizza is amazing. Great wine, cocktails to accompany your dinner. Nice ambiance. This restaurant make me and my husband love Italian food and keep coming back for more mouth watering dishes.

Horrible service!!!!! We visited this location on Christmas right before the 7pm Rocketts show. The location is great but it felt like it was tucked into a lobby and not a restaurant location. The atmosphere is really bad. Our server was the worst!! He never checked on us, we would have ordered at least two more drinks! The only person... More

Located in the Time Hotel and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We enjoyed the breakfast and diner but did not eat lunch. My wife enjoyed the French Toast and my egg dishes were prepared and tasted very good. Service can be a little slow but can be expected anywhere when all tables and seats were full of people.

If you are into Italian, Serafina's the place to try out- pizzas and all after a day of shopping. The very pleasant staff makes it a delight to dine there!

Serafina's many locations are a staple in NYC. I've been to 3 or 4 locations and the food is always good. Nothing special, and perhaps a little overpriced for average Italian food, but there's consistently good service, a nice atmosphere and I never leave hungry. My only complaint about this location is the bathrooms. You have to go upstairs in... More

We came here after the Radio City Christmas Show on a Sunday afternoon. I knew it was a bad sign when we came in & there was only 4 people in the place! The service was friendly but that couldn't make up for the terrible food. I ordered a Caesar salad & it tasted so bad (sour) so I sent... More

Our meal at Serafina was splendid --really tasty food. We went in after a matinee performance on Broadway and place was just beginning to bustle. Service was very attentive and nice atmosphere. We had a Caesar salad which was quite light and delicious. My partner had porcini mushroom raviolis and I had the seared tuna on squid ink pasta with... More

This was really good ! I had the gnocchi and it was wonderful! My girls had pizza which was thin crust and very goo. My husband had a seafood pasta which was excellent ! Desert and coffee and we left happy and full . Nothing is cheap in NYC but this was reasonable. Definitely would go back .
