“Nice tasting food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We went here on the off chance, party of 4, looked nice. Lovely setting with the bar area inside. I had the burger, others had pasta and pizza. No complaints, all really pleased with taste and presentation. Mid priced food but worth the money.

“Save yourself...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Had dinner at Serafina two nights ago...and I'm still confused by this restaurant.

Let's start with the good:

*Staff is super friendly.
*Good location (probably really nice outside in the summer).
*My picky husband liked his pasta (which never happens).
*Food comes out quickly.

Now the bad:

*The vegetarian platter was a total disaster. Tasteless!
*Prices at this place are unnecessarily high.
*The bread is cold and bordering on stale.
*The restaurant lighting is odd and troubling (at least for me).
*Food comes out too quickly! This scared me a bit.

Bottom Line: There are far too many good Italian restaurants in NYC to waste more time / money at this place. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

“Great Food at a Great Price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

We stopped in after the theater. Our original restaurant was down the block, but they had a sign that said 20% off if you show your theater ticket after the show. Serafina turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Their portions are big, and the food is fresh and well prepared. They are known for their brick oven pizza, but their pastas are super! Very interesting appetizers and salads. We had a problem deciding on just 2. Very innovative. I guarantee you will have a nice time here.

“Good Mood and a cosi food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Reading the trip advisor's reviews we have been leaded to this special restaurant. Great location, very close from times square by foot. We was surprised by the good mood, service and great food. The white truffle's focaccia for the starter was an amazing food experience, the pizzas and meats are great. No doubt we are going back in the future.

“Trendy pasta/italian in Meatpacking district, NY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

7 Ninth Avenue, New York
I dont usually like pasta but a friend living in NY organised the meal and it was delicious! We sat at the bar and had a few drinks and continued to eat, they had a tele on in the background showing the Nicks game, perfect for my guyfriend while us girls chatted away! Friendly staff and not too busy. Cute little romantic resturant true american style and in a very trendy area. We walked 5minutes to the Strand hotel afterwards and had cocktails overlooking manhattan & empire state! Perfect evening to a quick break in NYC!
