Came with a group pre arranged of 25. Didn't set a watch but was a long time just to order and forever to get our main course. Explanation was that some ordered white fish and that takes longer? We're here like 90 minutes already. Gasp.

Have gone there for years. Kind of a tradition. Nothing really great and the prices are really too high for the quality. Stay away from the seafood. The pasta isn't bad. Always say that we will go elsewhere, but return next year.

My family and I went to Serafini's for dinner one evening in late June. It had been a few years since I was there last...the prices went up but the fine quality of the food remained the same. I had linguini (it really looked like spaghetti), my son had spaghetti (that's how I compared the linguini size, even the waitress... More

Very unimpressed after our last trip to Serafini's. I ordered the seafood alfredo--it was a portion of doughy noodles with maybe 5 frozen shrimp floating around. If you are going to call a dish "seafood," then maybe you should actually put some crustaceans in the dish? My husband got the sausage and pasta--sausage was so dry he had to ask... More

Never even acknowledged at our table! Couple came in after us after 15 mins & got bread & water. We walked out... ridiculous!

Seated quickly, waitress attentive but not in your face constantly, lovely atmosphere, food was excellent, large portions. I had a steak salad that was fresh and delicious. We will go there again. I recommend it as A plus. Very nice place for something special.

The food was regular Italian food for a reasonable price. It wasn't particularly great. It's more for locals, not for tourists. Our waiter, however, was very nice (Connie).

When you walk in the door your nose wiggles from the smells. And it is good Italian food. And friendly people which make things so pleasant.

We ate at Serafini's and it was superb as usual. The pasta, sauce and salad dressings are all homemade. The servings are large and the bread is very good. This is a must visit restaurant when you are in Erie.

We had a fantastic meal last night at Serafini's. They were so helpful to check for MSG in the meatballs for me since I get so sick on it. NOPE....all clear! I had the Spaghetti and Meatballs and you can never go wrong. FANTASTIC. My husband had the Knocci and loved his meal as well. The server was great and... More
