We saw this place while walking down Madison Avenue, the pizza was great, very tasty. Very reasonable and great food, and of course very handy if you happen to be on Madison Avenue.

This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants. Their pizza is perfect. Thin crust and not too thick with cheese.

Had a meal there 2 nights ago and I can say it was one of the best meals we have had in a month long trip around America. The only disappointment was the staff who placed us down the back and showed little effort is service maybe due to the compulsory 20% tip. 5 stars for the food and 2... More

If I could give no stars, I would. We found this place through a Google search of places to eat near our location. Having lived in New York for forty years, I knew it was going to be expensive due to it's Madison Avenue location. What I did not foresee was the shoddy treatment right at the door. My adult...

It's very common in Europe to spend your lunch without any hurry at all, and Serafina is a great place to spend your time with family or friends and enjoy your time there ! The food was great, the coffee acceptable ! I was not very happy with the service, but that was my personal experience!

I stopped in with a friend at closing of The MET. We were a bit indecisive to start as we were not sure whether others would join us or whether we'd have an appetizer and leave. The waiter was very kind, letting us take our time. The menu had so many of my Italian favorites, it was difficult to choose.... More

After a nice walk its a perfect spot to reload your energy with a good Italian meal. The topfloor has a nice and cosy seat also during the evening. The chicken salad is perfect! Only for that I come back. Friendly service and you can even load your phone in the kitchen ;)

After going to the MET museum in NYC, we wanted to lunch somewhere nearby and saw Serafina's on our phone app couple of blocks away from Central Park. Great pasta and great staff...and great for people watching. Expect not to have a lot of room between tables and that is on a 2nd/3rd floor...but that was all part of the... More

A very nice place to enjoy a glass of wine and a pizza. Intimate and quiet so I do not see small children doing well. Service is rather cold but efficient. I would recommend for travelers visiting the met to stroll over for a quiet lunch. I am sure the locals enjoy it as well.

Thank Tracey M

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
