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. Natalie our server gave spectacular service and was prompt and attentive as well as energetic and enthusiastic, asking about food preferences and guiding... More

We celebrated a family birthday tonight at Serafina and I had not been back to this restaurant for 20 years. It was the same high quality wonderful food I remember including the quaint patio for dining alfresco. Each of the dishes selected were excellent and our server took great care of us. Don't let the dense neighborhood dissuade you. Find... More

we had a delicious brunch at serafina. The food was very good, flavorful and interesting. but what makes the place worth the price is is the excellent staff. The hostess was so welcoming and we saw her extend real kindness and welcome to other guests. The server also was excellent and went out of his way to meet our needs.... More

Had wonderful fresh, flavorful, classic Italian dishes. Pork Chop with fig, great bread with olive oil and seasonings to dip. Wonderful fresh seasonal peas and pea shoots lightly sauteed. Ravioli in a light butter sauce. Lively, classy vibe. Great service. Good for dates, girls night and nice business dinner.

Visiting family is Seattle and found Serafina on Tripadvisor. While reviewing another restaurant for lunch, a fellow traveler highly recommended Serafini and advising us to skip the "other" restaurant (unnamed). We were warmly greeted both by the host and our waiter Kyle. My husband enjoyed 'Fix Prix' lunch menu and on Kyle's advice chose the Cappelletti (ravoli like) pasta in... More

Have been to Serafina several times while visiting Seattle. Always a great experience. I don't think I've ever had a bad meal, from a full dinner to snacks at the bar. Service is always friendly and efficient. They have a great bar crew that take care of us every time. Atmosphere is good for a romantic dinner, small and intimate.... More

Attended a vintage Sangiovese luncheon hosted by Serafina and sister restaurant Cicchetti. Had such an amazing time, that we came back for dinner that night! Luncheon featured DOCG Sangiovese from vintages 1995 to 2009, paired to perfection with dishes including antipasti (Chickpeas three ways, Sardines, and prosciutto with shaved artichokes and olives), Pork terrine with dry cherries and orange zest,...

Went for lunch and both food and service were excellent. They offer a spring fixed menu for 15$, which was good. We also had salads and the sausage entree, both of which were great.

So this is a big claim...right... But it is true! We just ate there for Easter and the meal was "Over the Top" excellent! Fantastic menu selection, Superb food, excellent service in wonderful atmosphere. Since they hired Chef Chandler the restaurant has vaulted to a "10" +. If you get even close to Seattle...don't miss this restaurant. You will be... More

What I like to do at an Italian restaurant is when you can just go in and ask if the server or even the chef could just bring out what he or she thinks we would like. That's what our group of 4 did and it was simply incredible. See, sometimes it's the thing you wouldn't think of ordering for... More
