“A lovely Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

I have eaten here on several occasions and have never yet had a poor meal or had poor service. We normally eat at lunchtimes or early evening but this time stayed over at the Premier Inn which is within walking distance, so we were able to sample the atmosphere more. There is an excellent choice of food on the menu and staff are attentive without being intrusive. The restaurant has huge front windows so it is lovely watching life go by outside whilst eating. Only drawback is that the toilets are two flights of stairs up - not good if you've had a couple of glasses of wine - but otherwise it is a very enjoyable experience.

“BEST RESTAURANT IN WILMSLOW”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

I have eaten at Sarafina on numerous occasions, though mainly at lunchtimes and not in an evening, and this is the first time since starting to write Tripadvisor reviews. Saturday lunchtimes can sometimes be busy but usually just steady and it tends to be frequented by shoppers. Staying in Wilmslow this weekend, we ate here on Friday night around 7.45 and it didn't appear to be particularly busy but by 9 pm the ground floor tables were completely full. The service is attentive without being over the top and the food, as always, was of a very high standard. There was a large party on the first floor and it was better for those of us on the ground floor who tended to be in groups of twos and fours not to be subjected to the noise levels. All in all, a very good experience once again.

My husband and I happened on this fabulous Italian Restaurant one lunch time. Family run, great atmosphere, welcoming efficient staff and the food was superb. We shall definitely return to sample more from the varied menu.

“My favourite restaurant in Wilmslow by far”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

I’ve been to Sarafina with friends a few times and always loved it, particularly the early diner menu as it offers fantastic food at great value. I took my girlfriend for the first time there and we both really enjoyed it. The service is friendly and excellent and the food was delicious and exquisitely presented as ever.

“Best pasta in town”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Great family run restaurant (which you can feel).

Personal service, which is not always the best, but you can oversee that with the friendliness of the staff.

They cook the best pasta in town, and will make an extra effort to please you. For example, me and my wife could not decide on meals, and we were tempted to go for the same dish. But instead, they said that they will make both portions a bit bigger if we picked different dishes so we could share (and there was no way we could finish it all!).

Would recommend a visit!
