Serafina - Philadelphia Reviews List

Serafina - Philadelphia

Our cuisine is Northern Italian, originating from family recipes handed down from generations of cooks and adapted by Vittorio Assaf and his team of professional chefs. Serafina's creative pastas and risottos come to life with the freshest locally grown produce and ingredients, while the delicious desserts and extensive wine list satisfy every craving. Our famous thin crust pizzas are made with 00 Italian flour, filtered water, extra virgen olive oil, sea salt from Sicily and are produced in ovens hand built with lava stone from Mount Vesuvius fueled with burning cherry-wood. The remarkable food combined with the lively atmosphere of each location has mass appeal.

"I enjoyed a delicious dinner with my 11 year old daughter. She had a simple pasta dish, which she enjoyed. I had a grilled chicken dinner with arugula, which was very good and surprisingly filling. Our server was very nice."

"I went to lunch here with my mom on a beautiful spring day. This place is perfect for dining alfresco in lovely Rittenhouse. The food was better than I expected. I just got a simple arugula salad with tomatoes and parmesan and my mom got a delicious salad with chicken, and we got a marinara pizza with mozzarella. It was pretty affordable and I was expecting the service to be a little snobby, but the waiter was really nice. I'd definitely go back for lunch and sit outside on a nice day."

"I was entertaining out of town guests on a Saturday night. They were staying at Rittenhouse Square. They wanted Italian food? Where to go? We chose Serafina. There is definitely something for everyone on this menu - poultry, seafood, and of course, pasta. The pasta is the specialty of the restaurant. One of my friends loves pesto sauce. There was the perfect pasta dish for her. My other friend loves seafood. Our knowledgeable server suggested the pasta, seafood, and the type of sauce (shrimp and tomato sauce). I was uncertain as to what to order. Yes, I wanted pasta, the pasta in salmon looked tempting, however, did I really want the cream sauce. Again, our amazing server to the rescue. She described the sauce as creamy, yet not the rich cheesy-creamy sauce that is served in a lot of restaurants. She was right - the noodles were light and fluffy, similar to fettuccine noodles. My dinner was perfect, filling, yet not overwhelming. All three of us have low resistance to bread. The bread at Serafina was excellent - fresh and outstanding with the pesto, cheese, and olive oil dipping sauce. My friends were impressed with the restaurant and will definitely stop in again when they are in town."

"Not the first time that I experienced bad service: rudness, delays, forgetfulness, and just overall stress and mayhem. The food is ok, but not good enough to have to deal with that."

"If you like to be rushed, this is the place for you! We weren't even done with our meals and/or drinks and the busboy was reaching to take our plates! We literally were chewing and he's standing over us waiting for us to finish chewing! Our drinks were 3/4 finished and the waitress came over and started to take them away. Really? And, before you think that the restaurant was full, it wasn't! It was 12:30 on Saturday, March 12 and about 1/2 of the tables were empty. Go someplace else for a peace full meal and dining experience."

"We were very disappointed with our first (and last) time at Serafina.
For starters, our waiter was rude. When my girlfriend asked him to repeat the special because she could not hear him (seating is very close to other guests), instead of bending a bit to repeat the special, he opted to roll his eyes and then "yell" the special.
I tried to ask him a questions about a dish, but he quickly walked away.
The house Chianti was flat. It tasted as if the bottle was uncorked earlier in the day or even the night before and left uncorked. When we told the Mgr. (because he asked), the response was "sorry".
Portions are very small and very pricey. We left the restuarant hungry.
The one positive I can give this "Italian" restaurant is the pizza. It was different and very tasty.
If you are looking for a traditional Italian meal and a nice house Chianti with dinner, this is not the place.

"Decided to give Serafina another try after a year hiatus. Starting with the host who seated us...the restaurant was no more than 1/3 full at 8pm on a wed night. We had to squeeze by other tables to be seated in a cluster of occupied tables that were literally 2 ft apart at most. Could not move nor could you hear. Our server mumbled the specials and after repeating them, again mumbling, we gave up on understanding him. The server also had to squeeze by other tables to get to us so we did not see much of him at all. Salad was ok food was just average -much better Italian food and much better service is prevalent in Philly. Fettuccine was well cooked but my friend's dish was soggy pasta swimming in sauce. Hiatus will now be permanent!"
