The north end in maplewood square.

Was turned on by my son and his wife and couldn't be happier.Have been back 3 or 4 more times and haven't had a bad meal yet.Always ask for Alicia as she is a delightful waitress.I hope I spelled her name right.

Alright so, I'm kind of picky when it comes to Italian food. We were looking for a great local Italian place and this one got great reviews so we decided to check it out. Off the bat, I was pretty excited because the atmosphere reminded me of my Nonna and Nonno's house and the restaurant (for after 8PM too!) was... More

Everything... And, I mean everything here is absolutely delicious!! It's a smallish (40 people) intimate setting where everything is cooked to order... Plus, a nice Wine selection. I have never had anything there that I didn't like. There's an extensive menu... But, ask if there's Specials. His Salmon Encrust is to die for... And, the Pizzas done in the open... More

Serena's is an excellent restaurant when you are celebrating a special occasion or just out for a casual but elegant dinner. Ther service is great and the Italian food is just like moms. We enjoy this place because it is small and cozy.

Excellent Italian food in a small, cozy restaurant. The staff are very friendly, knowledgable and attentive. Red sauce is flavorful and I'm always a sucker for a great chicken parm! Go to Serena's and you won't be disappointed!

beautiful cozy atmosphere, intimate dining attention. The aromas fill the small establishment. never disappointed in menu nor service. Once we did take out and were chased down to our car because we forgot the salad! Oh my! What a loss on our part that would have been! The bread and salad were delectable! And I'm an omnivore by nature :)

My daughter and I were looking for a good Italian restaurant and she had heard some good things about Serena Ristorante at work, so we gave it a try. The restaurant presents itself well with white linen table clothes accented with black folded napkins and a bottle of wine on every table. We started with a glass of wine; and... More
