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

There is no debating that Serafini's is still Erie's best Italian Restaurant. We have out of town family & friends who choose Serafini's every time they visit Erie. No one is ever disappointed with the food or service. So glad to live in Erie and able frequent Serafini's more often.

As far as I am concerned, along with the rest of my family, Serafini's food has the absolute best Italian flavors in Erie. There choices are awesome and I have never had a poor tasting dinner. That is important when you are Italian yourself!!

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
