Meatballs are a must here, very good just the right spice and good sized. I was pleased with my lasagna good size portion, served with salad and bread. My husband likes the hot Italian sausage inside the hot roasted pepper and their perch dinner.

We enjoyed the restaurant last night, while we were in Erie for the Tall Ships Festival. The staff was pleasant and completely willing to please. Of course, we smiled at them, rather than anxious to give them grief. We had the $60 dinner for two. A great deal. Soup, antipasto salad, all kinds of pasta, meatball, sausage. Coffee. Ice cream....

I would have given a better rating but the service was terrible. The waitress that we were supposed to have ignored us for about 15 minutes and then another one came over to take our order. A table of six came in after us and were served first (we were a table of 2). The food took forever but surprisingly... More

Upon entering, we waited to be greeted by the 4 women who stood talking. Not very welcoming. Then, had to figure out a place to seat us (party of 4) when there were only a couple of the tables being used. It was very early and the place was empty. Finally, seated us in the back by the door, passing... More

We came home to Erie to visit our family and had a great time. We stayed with my in-laws. During the week we were there, I wanted to take my family out for giving us such a great week at home. Even though I am from Erie, I had never been to Serafinis. I saw it from 12th Street and... More

We dined here with family while on vacation. We have eaten here before and it's nice to know that the food is still over the top yummy! Everyone ordered something different and all enjoy their meals very much. I love the cheese ravioli and my husband had spaghetti and meatballs. Other party members ordered calamari lasagna. The best part of... More
