Late evening "special" dinner

I dropped by the restaurantfor a late and light dinner. The kitchen was closed I belive but the chef prepared me a dish based on the leftovers. I got some pasta with a bit of everything. Splendid.

I have been at the Serenata because a friend of mine told me it was good. She was absolutely right. We took an Entre and a Tagliata Filet. Everything was well cooked and nicely served. Service and food has the same level. The waiter that attended us was very kind. And at least bu not last......the price was very good

For the past 16 years Serenata has consistantly been serving high standard dishes. Nice and always delicious. The maitre is always friendly and has been there as long as we have been visiting. Slight downside is really that you take the kitchen smell with you if you are sitting in the left hand side of the restaurant close to where... More

Had a nice business dinner here with three colleagues. Nice seating area and ambience with the murals. My pork rolled in cheese / ham was good. Tartufo for dessert with amaretto was the favorite.

my first visit wasn't that nice as typical for here you need to have a reservation although lots of tables might be empty. Also to be mentioned on that first visit is that the service staff wasn't that friendly. BUT….after having several visits now in this place I made contact with the staff and now we do like this place... More

This restaurant has it all: good food, reasonable prices (max 20-30 per meal), a nice interior, friendly waiters who take your jacket and a beautiful plates. A nice place for a date, or for seeing an old friend!

Ate here a few times (which was always good) but it wouldn't hurt to have a more inventive & changing menu. I know that when I go back in a couple of months the menu will still be the same. Too bad! The approach of the waiters and maître is also not appreciated by everyone (can be very blunt).

I have had dinner here twice. The first time I already noticed the waiters a bit arrogant and quickly annoyed if you asked anything. The second time we were a group of 4 colleagues and for expenses claim reasons we needed to all pay a fourth of the bill. The waiter told us we needed to talk to the manager... More

I had an excellent codfish dish and my colleague had veal which I tried and it was also excellent. Although our server was stretched a bit thin due to the holiday season causing the serving staff to be a minimum, he was very attentive and charming. Excellent suggestions on food and wine. We enjoyed a very nice meal.
