Pezh and Romin took a brave gamble here. Following an extensive refurbishment, they dumped the old carte with its weary, faux Italian selections and injected their enthusiasm for regional cuisine that sings out with inventiveness. Romin has created an ambitious menu which reflects the seasonality of local ingredients, cooked with flair and attention to detail. A tremendous effort went into... More

We went here yesterday after waiting for it to reopen. Food and service were both excellent. I ordered the calamari fritti for starters and the battered was perfect and light and crispy. The spaghetti de mare was delicious and had loads of seafood in it. Overall a great lunch and reminded me of being back in Italy. Can't wait to... More

Have visited many times but this is the first since it's reopening. The restaurant looks great and our waiter Tom was exceptional but personally I don't think the menu has changed for the better. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted nice but I used to devour the mussels in white wine which is no longer on the menu (now with... More

After many months' break, my wife and I decided to check out the re-opened Sarafina. They graciously accepted us at 5:30 pm after first calling them, and one of the owners and the waiter did everything to accommodate us, particularly my wife's vegetarian requirements in every detail. Her canelloni with spinach and cream cheese filling was mouthwatering, and my choice... More

We've been to Sarafina a few times and the food and staff are excellent. Perfect for a family meal. The majority of the staff are Italian including the chefs so they know their food and wine. Large portions for the children on the children's menu.

Second time to Sarafina and not dissapointed. Service and food was spot on. Waiter, one of the owners I think, made the evening. Very polite and nothing was too much trouble. Can't wait for the new refurb. At the end of March I think 😉

We went to Sarafina on a saturday night with family we were visiting at their recommendation and were really glad we did. The staff were friendly and attentive, chatty without getting in the way. We each had two courses, generous portions and really delicious. The kids had their own little meals to choose from and we were sat upstairs, which... More
