The food was beautifully prepared (starting with a summer melon salad with four different types of melons and a gentle dressing and then risotto. The servings were the... More

My husband had the lasagna and it was one of the best he'd ever tasted. I had a perfectly dressed salad with toasted honeyed hazelnuts on top! Fantastic tomato soup.

It can be challenging to please a large traveling group of fab foodies with as diverse tastes as our group of 9 had - and still Serafina's manage to delight us separately as well as a group.

Don't let the dense neighborhood dissuade you. Find... More
