Sarafina's is consistently very good. Comfort Italian food is how I'd describe her cooking. Portions are large and prices are fair. service staff is always very friendly and accommodating. Sara herself frequently checks-in on diners,making sure they are enjoying themselves. Sarafina's is our favorite restaurant...More

The place to eat in Arnold. Very busy. Don't forget to get reservations ahead of time. They have a very nice wine list.

We decided at the last minute to try Sarafina's on a Saturday night. The restaurant was full but they managed to get us seated in a very reasonable time. Reservations advised- especially on weekends! The restaurant is rather small and rustic. They will seat people...More

Four of us had dinner over the weekend. Make reservations a week ahead if it's a good skiing weekend, tho you might be able to walk in and eat in the smallish bar. We eat at Sarafina's often and we are always pleased. The ambiance...More

Italian is pretty generic, but this food was excellent. I had the Rolled Chicken stiffed w/ Asparagus - really good. We started w/ the Calamari, which was really crispy (the way I like it). Make your reservation well ahead of time, and bring an appetite.

Very tight space. We had a hard time with our large group. The food was not all that great and over priced. The potatoes were watered down with no favor. Stingy with the bread. Waitresses were nice but very rushed. We will not be returning.

We arrived at 5 p.m. on Sunday for dinner without reservations. The parking lot was full so we parked at a vacant building next door. The only tables were 3 high top tables, one next to the front door and two in an adjacent room...More

Busy little Italian. I think the reason it is so busy and high on TA ratings is that there aren't many places to eat in Arnold. We were sat outside looking over an unpleasant side lot. I had the signature dish of squid to start....More
