Get your tetanus shot before you sit down here for a meal. What a foul smelling place with hardly any if at all service.

From the moment we met the rude man at the reservation counter to the constant calling for our waiter to get us more drinks, we found the service was miserable (even by NYC standards). One of our colleagues ordered a scotch and she never received it! We were almost finished with the first round of drinks before she could get... More

I had a pizza there recently. It was ok. The crust needed more salt. However, the service was great. I didn't realize that this was a chain of restaurants in NYC. I would have eaten at another Italian restaurant had I known.

We were excited to go here on our trip to NYC but we had terrible service. We felt neglected during our meal and my pasta was cold when it was served. I wouldn't go back.

When we come to the City, we always hit Broadway and before the theater we eat at Serafina. It is always delicious, whatever you order, the staff is very courteous and friendly, and we always look forward to going back. How many restaurants can you say that about? Enjoy!

I come here several times a year to meet a friend for lunch. The food is very good, but there's nothing on the menu that stands out as a dish that I can't wait to order every time I come here. The owners/hosts are very nice and welcoming and that speaks well of the place. It's definitely a crowded NYC... More

We ate here twice. Once for dinner and as we had such a good experience we actually followed up with breakfast the next morning. The food at dinner was lovely, the Calzone was huge, but was managed to be devoured as it was delicious. The Paglia & Fieno pasta was cooked just right, lovely. If you like chocolate try the...

Pasta was ok but salad drenched in dressing and the service was friendly but not skilled.Pancakes the next morning were tasty good but undercooked, on the other hand... More

Had to grab a nice dinner for a last minute change of plans so was nice that we didn't have to wait as we did not have a reservation. Was very happy with the food!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
