Delicious food, great service, cozy atmosphere. We dont go out to eat very often, but this is a place we often choose when we do.

Chose Sarafino's over a more pricey Italian place and SO glad we did. Best homemade gnocchi ever, with a big loaf of fresh warm bread. Family friendly but also romantic enough for our dinner for 2. Looks like a locals favorite.

Been there many times, for years. Wait staff very friendly & efficient. Meals are always excellent. Beans & greens, hot bread with dipping sauce, salads, pizzas, crab cakes all great. Tried most entrees and never disappointed. Large portions. BYOB. Good for families. Easy parking. Not very big but never a long wait. Can get noisy when crowded.

I have been going to this restaurant for years because my parents like it. It is a cozy little local place with a nice Italian atmosphere and a good menu. In fact, I've enjoyed everything I've ever ordered there. However, the staff is so cold and rude it makes me never want to go back. As I said, I have... More

We were hoping this was going to be that little hidden gem, but we were very disappointed. The positives: It's a quaint little BYOB restaurant with 9 tables inside and 5 on the sidewalk. Our waitress was very nice. Prices are reasonable. The negatives: The food. I ordered the Diavolo, which our waitress told me had a kick to it.... More

It has been too long since I have been to Sarafino's! Just a few months, but that is WAY too long! I have always been greeted warmly and rapidly. This day, Tuesday, April 19, at 4:00p.m., was no exception. A friend from Erie was in town, so I took her there, to share the love! & it was food love!!... More

We were hesitant about stopping at 730 on a Saturday but pleasantly surprised to get a table very quickly since it was just the 2 of us this visit. Greens and Beans a must and a very large portion served. Great with the warm bread. We had 2 of the specials - crabcakes and seafood pasta. Both very tasty for... More

This restaurant is for true foodies. Who don't need all the fancy trimmings. This is a truly unique experience. Welcome to an authentic Italian Family Kitchen. I grew up in one and this is the same! There were 6 of us for dinner. Please start off with the Antipasto Salad. They cut the fresh cappicola, provolone and pepperoni with their... More
