What a treat to discover this lovely local eatery, northern Argentina dishes to die for in a familiar atmosphere. Cheap and cheerful!

This is a proper bodegón of the kind you usually have to travel towards La Crespa, Parque Patricios or Boedo to reach. Which is not always easy at night if you're in town briefly. Ña Serapia delivers - outstanding mondongo; a few wines that go...well with bodegón meals, but like most Argentine wine aren't meant to be drunk without food. Great prices and efficient and helpful service. Let's face it, if a cuisine hasn't been adapted to the bodegón format, porteños old and new usually aren't very good at doing it. Vivan los bodegones!More

It is a simple local diner. If you are looking for a comfortable restaurant, this is not for you. We were here for dinner. We ordered a couple empanadas and a plate of grilled chicken. The chicken was dry so skip it. The empanadas were...excellent. We highly recommend verdura (vegetable), queso y cebolla (cheese & onion) and choclo (corn). Prices were cheap and the service was friendly.More

Despite the awesome food reviews, I was not sure whether to try the place based on some of the critical reviews of the ambiance of the restaurant. I would totally disregard those. It was charming and authentic. If you are looking for anything fancy this...is not the place for you but excellent empanadas made fresh while you wait and very reasonably priced (4 empanadas and 2 drinks for $12 USD). Afterwards we walked to the Floralis Generica near the park.More

If you're aftering good empanadas look no more. This place will fix you up nicely. Price is cheap. Ignore the environment and service but just focus on the empanadas. It's worth it.

It is esy to miss theis small restaurant from the street. It looks like an old fashioned luncheonette from the 1950s. The place looks a bit run down. However the empanadas are fresh and excellent. The owner is quite friendly. This is mostly a place...for localsand so is a nice break from tourist oriented restaurants.More

We went looking for the best empanadas, the place is very small, not as clean as should be and the quality of the empanadas that you want to forget. DO NOT WAIST YOUR TIME!

Just arrived in BA today for another long stay. Not in the mood to "fine dine", we walked over to Na Serapia and ordered empanadas for the two of us. Two carne.......one jamon.......one cebollo y queso....really "hit the spot". We've done take-out here numerous times,...but since we haven't been back in 2 years, we actually forgot the deliciousness of these things. At 13 pesos/empanada.......dinner at home cost 52 pesos or $4/blue rate.......$6/official rate. You can't beat it. Yes, the place lacks ambience....but the owner is terrific and so is the food. Great location on Las Heras...across from the park. Try it.........you'll love it.More
