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

My favorite time to visit Sarafina's is in the winter. The stone fireplace is golden, the pasta hearty, and friendly chatter inviting. Of course summer on the deck is pretty good too, with a good red wine!

We have eaten here many times. Great pasta dishes. Restaurant is small so it feels like you are sitting with the table next to you. Because of the size it can be noisey. Service has always been good.

We have eaten here many times. Delicious Italian food. Went for dinner recently and commented that Sarah's Favorite looked yummy except it had cream sauce and the waitress offered that they could leave the cream out. It was delicious with just their tomato sauce. Service...More
