Went for Miami spice. Portion sizes clearly smaller. Steak was chewy but truffle fries were tasty. Salmon was cooked well but very bland. Ceviche was fresh but small portion. Eggplant was excellent. Wait staff was inattentive and water glass was left empty several times without it being refilled. We wanted tiramisu but they didn't have any left, so we got the pistachio gelato instead and only have one small scoop. It was okay.

Food was ok . Service was horrible. Arrived on time for my 6:45 reservation , was seated and at 7:30 still no waiter approached us to serve us water. Finally had to flag someone down to serve water and place our order. Took about an hour to get our food, which was just ok. My guest and I did not have another hour to waste so we ended up heading somewhere else for desert.

Conveniently located inside the mall on the upper level. Graciously greeted by the hostess. We chose to sit outside and were given a corner table under a fan, which was nice on a humid evening. Very few patrons seated outside. I was expecting to be a bit neglected since the place was busy inside. Our server was attentive the whole evening, and checked on us regularly. Had a few special requests during our meal which they accommodated. The Rose wine was very good! I ordered a pepperoni pizza, which was very stingy on the pepperoni. But otherwise tasted good.

The Miami Spice menu is delicious. There was an event the day we scheduled and we were unaware of this until we got to the restaurant. So seating was 'outside' and it was VERY noisy. A bit tough to chat and catch up without leaning into the table. It was also VERY crowded. If I leaned back in my chair I could hear the conversation in the table behind ours. The fact that it's located inside a mall doesn't help. And the food was good.

Das Restaurant Serafina liegt im ersten Stockwerk der Shopping Mall „Aventura Mall“. Das Essen ist super authentisch und schmeckt wie von Mama. Das Personal versteht sich sehr gut untereinander und ist sehr freundlich und aufmerksam. Das beste italienische Essen ausserhalb von Italien.

$16 for a shot (a pretty small shot at that) of Crown Royal? Come on, the 5th is only $19.99. It's a mall...and the front is wide open to the mall and outside seating is as well. We thought this was related to a restaurant with the same name in Ft. Lauderdale which we love.... not so.

Fetuccini Alfredo for the Mrs., a salad for me, and the Crown Royal shot and a glass of wine - $80 (rounded). After the waiter handed me the Ipad with the 20% tip already highlighted (ostensibly for my convenience?), we were just under $100 - NOT GOING BACK.

Waiter was inattentive. Hostess forgot to mark us present for our reservation and as a result we were not able to use our Open Table reward. We were marked as a no-show. Food mediocre and overpriced. Salmon entree was the standout. The staff could use
some extra training.

Ughhh not my best Italian meal.
I know Serfina from philly and maybe in my head it was much better than it was but this location wasn’t that good.
The server hyped this veal and risotto dish that I was sure I’m gonna melt , end up getting uncooked risotto and slow cooked meat with tomato sauce. By the time we got the order fixed we finished all the other food and had to take it to go.
The breaded chicken dish was tasteless and I kept applying lemon on it , Cheesecake Factory that is half the price have way better breaded chicken.
Carpaccio from other hand was amazing!
We got free desserts which was nice and tasty especially the Cannoli.
With the fact you seating in the mall so it’s definitely not your “nice Italian restaurant “ experience.

The food was as good as usual and the wine 50% off deal for lunch was a great surprise. But the staff was not paying attention and-or not well trained: plates were carelessly left on the table, anywhere, desert was a mess (the same guest was served two plates while the others were still waiting! crazy!).
