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!

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.

Een dag voor kerst geboekt en nog eenntafel voor 5 kunnen reserven. We hebben niet lang hoeven wachten op onze tafel. Bediening was snel en vriendelijk. Tevens werd het eten ook al snel gereserveerd en was erg lekker. Prijs kwaliteit verhouding ook top.

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!

Disappointing dinner. I have always liked going to Serafina restaurants around NYC, but this one at 105th is always under par. I first thought it was because they were new (I went within a few days of their opening), but having gone twice since then, I still find the food and service not as good as the other Serafina's.

Disappointing meal at Serafina 105. I enjoy many of the Serafina restaurants around the city, but this one was disappointing. My pasta was over cooked and the chicken was chewy. Their wines weren’t very good. I won’t be going back.

Went to Serafina with a neighborhood friend and we enjoyed it very much. The food is good -- but the artichoke salad is spectacular. Pizzas and pastas are great and the menu has something for everyone. Our server was friendly and attentive. The prices are right. Will definitely return.

Average food, nice service, average ambiance, a little high-priced for such average-ness.
I would not care to return but have a friend in the neighborhood and if this place pleases her, I'll order only a small pizza.
Best bet--stick to the basics here.

I live the gnocchi and spaghetti bolognese here. It’s delicious! Of course, they don’t always get my order correct. That has happened at least twice before and it happened on this occasion too. The waitstaff is slow and not very attentive but certainly friendly. The olive oil at the table with bread is delicious. I will buy a bottle next time.
