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!

Server got our order wrong and when it came out he said “the kitchen must have been really busy”. Didn’t apologize, didn’t over to bring our the correct order. Just rude. Bland food and bland service.

Unremarkable eggs Benedict for brunch. In toasted English muffin, bland hollandaise, measly spinach. Potatoes good. But for the price go elsewhere

It was clean, they honored our reservation and were polite. However we had to ask the busboys three times to stop removing the plates before we were done. That drives me insane. The manager must be beating them, but there were empty tables so we couldn't figure out the mad rush. For mediocre food at that price, it should at least be relaxed.

Went for brunch. The ambience was basic but fine, and food was good but nothing really special, my biggest complains is it’s overpriced. The worst value: a $14 piece of avocado toast was a single slice of bread with smashed avocado and a tiny pile of greens.

On a recent quiet Tuesday evening I went to Serafina with a friend. Our reservation was for 7:30 PM and we really didn't need to do it. The interior is smaller than I thought it would be. The food and service were fine. BUT, the noise level at the bar was incredible. The loud voices spilled into every part of the restaurant and ruined my dining experience. The bar drinkers stood and had amazingly loud conversations. We sat just a few feet away. I found the behavior boorish and highly inconsiderate. I will not patronize Serafina under these circumstances.

Great food - the waiter excellent but the bus boys were coarse olive was brought to the table which no longer had bresd plates! At the end of the meal they took dishes/baskets without asking if we’d finished! The food made up for the graceless bus boys.

We went for a last min option on New Years Eve. I knew they have vegan options bc I’ve been to other locations. Our table was terrible we sat next to some wet wipes! Yes like legit baby wipes lol smh. Anyways we order I got the arugula salad that was drenched in too much vinaigrette. Presentation and salad was terrible. The waiter just kept passing us so after 15min he comes over and we just got the check and left. Never again

We were allowed to make reservations an hour before closing time according to hours of operation by opentable. Upon arrival, we discovered that the establishment was completely closed. Luckily we live two blocks away but still a very distasteful experience if you had to turn around from further away. We like to eat out almost everyday, just a shame while Serafina having great food will not count on us returning.

Pizza wasn’t to my liking - felt very under baked. The waitress didn’t have a notepad when taking our order and got my husband’s main wrong - he took what she had ordered as the waiter basically told my husband that he is wrong (I am sure he is old enough to remember what he ordered)! To save hassle and more awkwardness, my husband kindly said he would take what was given, however we still got charged the extra as the wrong main was more expensive. I felt this was out of order and there was no mention of the wrong order again e.g no free drink or anything like that and we were disappointed that we got charged the extra. Also, the waiter came with my main while I was still eating my starter and was squeezing it on my table while I was still trying to eat/finish my starter. This put me under pressure to finish my starter and was just unprofessional- you wait until the customer is ready for their main. This was a disappointing Christmas Day meal - would never recommend here.

A deeply mixed dining experience. My husband’s gnocchi was excellent but my ravioli was undercooked and over salted, and the waiter forgot to put in the order for one of our guests. Next time we will go to the 78th street branch, where the food is reliably good.

I'm always on the hunt for homemade gnocchi and Serafina does not disappoint! Delicious gnocchi bolognese. The prices are a bit high for a pasta dinner but the bolognese sauce is quite good and homemade gnocchi is fantastic! While you're there try the Galvanina Italian sodas. They are delicious and flavorful. I'm not really a fan of soda but I LOVE these. YUM!
