We were in town for a concert-Serafina seemingly had good reviews. We went for a late lunch. The restaurant looked quaint and cozy. Service was terrible. The waitress kept saying she wasn't prepared for work. It took forever to get our salads, I got mine...More

I love bolognase and have it frequently. This was not my favorite. It was generously endowed with meat but needed something to make it more flavorful, in my opinion. I finally added salt and it was better. The staff was friendly, helpful and attentive, and...More

My daughter and I went here for dinner after a day of college visits. Lovely atmosphere, great staff and delicious food. Would come here again. Hopefully, we will if she gets into a school in Philadelphia.

Located at 130 South 18th Street, just off Rittenhouse Square, Serafina is convenient to reach and very attractive and inviting to anyone walking by. Our party of 5 was seated at a table near the rear of the restaurant, in an alcove corner by a...More

The restaurant was ok. The pasta was perfectly al dente but the sauce (a simple bolognese) could have had more seasoning. It was a little noisy though from the busy S 18 Street traffic. I would go again maybe not on a busy night and...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.
