This is the second time we have eaten here but don't think we will be going back. The food was ok as was the service but for what we paid I would expect both to be better. There are so many choices of other restaurants...More

Delicious restuarant on Rittenhouse Square. We stopped for lunch and had excellent salads and service. Great vibe similar to the Serafina in Manhattan

I wanted to grab lunch in downtown Philadelphia and Serafina looked welcoming with it's open air seating having all it windows open. The restaurant was almost empty at lunch, one table sat inside and one outside. This maybe should have told me something! First the...More

Decided to stop here for dinner last night. As a former person who has been in the food service industry, this place was not the greatest. We opted to do the $35/person Resturant Week special...which included bruschetta, appetizers, entre, and dessert. The bruschetta was probably...More

Our family of 6 had a horrible experience with our waiter last night (Aug. 1). He spilled water all over my son and didn't even attempt to help clean up. We ordered a bottle of wine that he never once came over to pour additional...More

Overpriced average food. Nice place in good location, but the food was not too impressive. Service was ok. I'd rate my experience 2.5

Walked in Saturday night 7:30 with coworker. We were seated right away. Service was prompt, wine glasses decently full, and my chicken Parmesan was worth writing about. I would go back.

This is a good Italian restaurant in the middle of the city center. The food is authentic Italian and very good. The service is very good, including the pastas which are cooked "Al dente" the proper way and very delicious, The Branzino fish dish was...More

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.
