We've been to Sarafina a few times and the food and staff are excellent. Perfect for a family meal. The majority of the staff are Italian including the chefs so they know their food and wine. Large portions for the children on the children's menu.

Second time to Sarafina and not dissapointed. Service and food was spot on. Waiter, one of the owners I think, made the evening. Very polite and nothing was too much trouble. Can't wait for the new refurb. At the end of March I think 😉

We went to Sarafina on a saturday night with family we were visiting at their recommendation and were really glad we did. The staff were friendly and attentive, chatty without getting in the way. We each had two courses, generous portions and really delicious. The kids had their own little meals to choose from and we were sat upstairs, which... More

We visited Sarafina this weekend for an evening meal. We ordered the antipasto for two, two mains from the specials menu, and two desserts. All of the food was delicious - would recommend the generous antipasto for starter, and the chocolate brownie for dessert. We also tried the cannoli which was lovely for those who like citrus desserts. The service... More

I would have scored 4 but some of the dishes were odd and overpriced. I had the prawn starter which was great and the chicken pasta which was also nice. My husband didn't do as well... He had a duck special starter, very nice but over priced and then he ordered the monkfish with sweet chilli sauce but it arrived... More

Sarafina is lovely! Very intimate, romantic setting-- my boyfriend and I sat on the upper level nearest the window. The food was delicious as well. I highly recommend the Bruschetta Peperonata to start and the Ravioli al Peperone! The Mozzarella Fritti was nice too. Would definitely return!

We were in Wilmslow to browse round the sales and decided to eat in Sarafina as we were at that end of town. It is also one of our favourite eating places. We were surprised to find it had changed hands since our last visit but were pleased to report that the standard of food was unchanged and if anything,... More

Visited Sarafina tonight with family. We all really enjoyed our meal. All had pasta, good portion sizes and lovely flavours. The staff were friendly and attentive. Prices were reasonable, especially considering it is in Wilmslow! Service was pretty fast even with it being busy. We will certainly visit again in the future. Great little gem.
