Serafina Restaurant Group was conceived when Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato made a pact while traumatically lost at sea. The two friends agreed to open a restaurant serving the best pizza and pasta in the world if they were to survive the ordeal. In 1995, they fulfilled their promise by launching the highly acclaimed Serafina Fabulous Pizza. Following the success of their first location, they have gone on to open numerous locations worldwide!

In 2008, they opened Brasserie Cognac in the Theater District where Chef Florian V. Hugo, a great-great-great grandson of poet Victor Hugo, serves fine French cuisine. Vittorio and Fabio energetically guarantee comfort, excitement and fabulous food at every location!

We loved it!! We went to celebrate my birthday as a family, we have a teen with Autism and when I made the reservation I specified that we wanted a comfortable table so as not to disturb anyone and have a good time, they were super attentive and of course we will return. Good food and ambience ❤️

Serafina at 105th St and Broadway is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. We went on Tuesday for lunch with 2 of our daughters and 4 granddaughters. Our waiter was working the entire inside dining room as well as outside- and taking care of bar drinks. He was amazing- and he got everything right! Not always so easy with children aged 7-13 with special requests! Even made a perfect Shirley Temple for our 7 year old. The food is consistent and very good - the pizzas are all great! We appreciate that they have a children's menu - and love the crayons and paper table cloths!

We went for brunch, but no brunch during the week however there ws more than enough to have brunch! Pizza with an egg, terrific goatcheese spinach salad, drizzled with honey!, plus a great hamburger. We sat outside due to covid. Heaters worked. Delicious.

We really enjoyed our brunch at Serafina. The food was delicious, best scrambled eggs with sausage I've ever had. Service was attentive and very friendly.

This Serafina is in a lovely space with lots of room between indoor tables and good airflow once they turned the heat down. The staff is warm and solicitous. Our lunch, however, was just awful. We both ordered the chicken salad, or should I say a plate of very tired romaine with a small amount of dry cubed chicken pieces. It came way too quickly to be freshly constructed. The sun dried tomatoes were an unfortunate addition. The dressing was decent but could not compensate for or disguise the poor quality of the salad. My cappuccino arrived with a lovely foam design but after a few sips, I abandoned it. I wonder if it was brewed coffee under the foam, not an espresso shot.
I am mindful of the challenges of Covid and try to be less critical and look for the positive, but this was impossible to rationalize. Maybe a pasta or pizza would have been a better option. I won’t be eating there again, however.

The food was exceptional. It felt to me like our server was going in fast-motion though not necessarily rushing us. Up until it was time to order dessert and get the check. That all took too long, but the ambiance was great as was the food. I’d definitely go back again.

I like this chain of upscale Italian food. The pizzas are a solid choice. Also had the spaghetti squash dish which was tasty and a good choice if you are vegetarian.
Recently at dinner the waiter was somewhat inattentive. I'll return but I'm hoping they pay attention to their server staff.

Our Thanksgiving dinner at Serafina was delicious. The service was excellent. Serafina has very nice outdoor seating - one of the best in the neighborhood- so we had a great time. We have been there a few times and would highly recommend it to anyone for any occasion.

First and last time, horrible experience 2 hours for the food and when it finally arrives it wasn’t edible. Tried to bribe us with free bread and olive oil. I’ve heard great things so I had high expectations but I will never return nor recommend to anyone. Worst experience thus far.

It was just okay. The food was good but service was just alright. We had a lot of empty glasses that needed water. I was also pretty upset that they didn’t tell us soda wasn’t free refills. It would have been really nice to know that. I blame that on our waiter because it seemed like he was no where to be found half of the dinner.

Food here is delicious. Service was a tiny bit slow but super friendly and it was a very busy lunch period. Prices have gone up since the pandemic. Still, a really good friendly place where you know you'll get good food. Also, ate outside so flying insects here and there. Not sure how to deal with that.
