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.

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

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.
