We're in Seattle for an extended stay in south Lake Union and happened on Serafina. It's a great neighborhood place. My lasagna was amongst the best if not the best I've had. My wife had Mellanzana alla Serafina which was thinly sliced eggplant rolled around cheese and other stuffing. It was excellent as well. Sit outside, weather permitting. We'll definitely... More

Great happy hour although bar is small and loud. Appetizers much less than same items on regular menu. Went outside after happy hour and had a lovely dinner on the patio. The special pasta of the day was fabulous, the lasagna predictable (but delicious) and the salad a nice compliment. The service was friendly and attentive. Will definitely visit again!

Needed some good Italian food while in Seattle. Serafina was recommended by staff at Silver Cloud Inn on Lake Union and was near by. Rustic atmosphere, enticing menu and nice wine list. Once we saw the Fiori di Zucca on the menu, had to have and was not disappointed. 3 large beautifully stuffed squash blossoms delicately coated in a light... More

My friends have brunch here every weekend. I guess it's convenient for them. The fruit plate was indeed fresh, but the egg dish selection seemed uninspired for the price. Attentive waistaff.

I have always heard about Serafina, but never ventured north along Lake Union to find it. When a Living Social coupon offered Champagne Brunch it was the perfect opportunity for a date with my husband! We were smitten with the atmosphere as soon as we walked in, the service was welcoming & friendly throughout our visit, the food delicious! The... More

Good News: Cozy, quirky decor, clueful staff, and among the most remarkably flavorful Italian food this side of the Mediterranean. Bad News: I can't stop thinking about my meal there! Caveat: Eastlake parking - what can I say? Frustrating. But worth it.

Serafina’s turned out to be a wonderful dining experience from the warm greeting we received upon arrival to the final farewell from the wait staff. We started with the crispy squash blossoms and Bruschetta. The house smoked mackerel on the bruschetta was a real treat! The anchovy vinaigrette on the Acciyghe salad was well balanced with the radicchio and gem... More

We've been coming to Serafina for years, it consistently a place we call one of our favorite restaurants in Seattle and definitely our favorite Italian restaurant. Unlike some other high end restaurants where you feel you need to be dressed up or you're looked down upon, Serafina reflects the family restaurant warmth we've experienced in Italy. Great wine list -... More

I've been to Serafina a few times and I've always had very nice food and enjoyed the atmosphere. I recently went there for the Restaurant Week promotion and came away very impressed. The food was fantastic, especially the soup and the halibut. I was really impressed, especially considering the deal going on. The wait staff were also very attentive and... More
