    Delicious food, flavorful black truffle pasta and good drinks (had old fashioned). Service was prompt, our table was bit cramped between two others. Good for vegetarians - many options!

    The staff was unbelievably kind, always checking in on us to see what we needed, and were so apologetic for the delay in service. The service alone will bring us back but the food was phenomenal.

    The food was definitely not worth the money. My pasta felt like melted butter was poured all over it rather than the sauce depicted on the menu. My friends experience was the same. We will never go back to that restaurant. Service was poor as well

    Serafina - Boston Back BayResponded on July 23, 2022Hi Sharong, We are deeply sorry we did not live up to expectations. I would love to have you come back as my guest for the poor experience. I can attest that is isn't our status quo and we need to do better to avoid visits like this in the future.

    we were seated near the bathrooms, where there was an unpleasant smell. the service was top notch, however the menu prices were not up to date so the bill came out with unexpected prices, which were later fixed. food was disappointing, flavorless, and unseasoned. the price did not justify the taste and quality of food. the ambiance was cute for brunch

    Serafina - Boston Back BayResponded on July 23, 2022Hi Diyora, We are so sorry we did not live up to expectations. I just sent you a private message, feel free to respond to the email provided.

    Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The meatball appetizer and the salads were wonderful. I really liked the bowtie pasta and shrimp dish. Others enjoyed the chicken parm and grilled salmon. Antonio was our server, and he was delightful and very attentive. Highly recommend if you are looking for Italian food in the Back Bay. We will return.

    We had the most amazing experience. The manager and all the staff were so warm and sweet and helpful. We arrived a little early after our race and they seated us before the restaurant opened. They gave us water and as soon as they opened had our drinks and food out so quickly. The food was delicious and the drinks were just as good. I highly recommend the chocolate martini and chocolate cake for dessert. Thanks for a wonderful day!

    I definitely would return to try more dishes. I would have to go in for lunch and dinner I have been there for brunch. Nice and cool vibe I couldn’t decide between the breakfast pizza or the Nutella with strawberries so we split both. The drinks were delicious. Service was well-timed and friendly. We will be back soon

    There was a mixup where they delivered one persons meal to another table. Mistakes happen but it felt like not enough was done to correct it. 2 of 3 had our meals and 1 did not. It was awkward to eat at different times because of this.

    Serafina - Boston Back BayResponded on May 31, 2022We are very sorry this happened. When something like this happens, we try to get food out to your table as soon as physically possible. I'd like to extend an invitation back to make up for the error, feel free to email Newbury@serafinaboston next time you're planning on coming in.

    We ate very early- 5pm and the restaurant was nearly empty, but we were immediately informed that they would need to turn the table over at 7:30. I thought it was a joke, since it gave us nearly 2 1/2 hours to eat, but it became apparent the manager was serious. Then we received very rushed service and they managed to feed us and get us the check in under 30 minutes. I did not even bother to finish my glass of wine. The food was fine, but I would not eat in the restaurant again. It was a little rude and stressful.

    Serafina - Boston Back BayResponded on May 31, 2022Hello, I am so sorry to hear of a less than stellar experience. I will personally following up with the management team and hosts to assure we are not sending the wrong message. Our kitchen does good food out quickly but it was sounding like the rest of your service felt rushed. I would like to personally invite you back to make up for the issue. Feel free to email Newbury@serafinaboston next time to plan to do so.

    Good food and reasonable decor but way too noisy! Also, wine list was weak.

    Serafina - Boston Back BayResponded on May 31, 2022Hi Novel, thanks for your review. We're sad to hear we did not live up to your expectations. Balancing dinner conversations and music volume on a busy Saturday can some times be challenging. As for the wine list, we try to offer as many of our favorites as we can; unfortunately we are limited to the amount we can carry based on our smaller size on Newbury. Hope to have you back.
