We love Serafina and call it our neighborhood restaurant even though we live 40 min away! The meals are always excellent, service is always top notch, and the new pastry chef makes a 7 layer special dessert that’s outstanding! Our friends also love it! Appetizers,...More

We always loved Serafina. It was a great local Italian spot with good service and great food. We had dinner there tonight and I'm not sure what's changed but it was not the authentic Italian we have enjoyed in the past. The server was new...More

I would never eat here again. The service was substandard and the food mediocre at best. The dining room manager in particular was nasty and unprofessional. I wish I’d gone to one of the other 5 million restaurants in Seattle

4 of us had dinner - I had been several times before - and we were all disappointed. The Limone salad was bland. My carbonara was almost exclusively pasta, I had to search for the meat. And two had the Affogato dessert, which was basically...More

Enjoyed a dinner here recently and really enjoyed their mussels. We had not been to Serafina for quite awhile but I was reminded why we liked it when we went in. It has a nice atmosphere and a décor that works well for the restaurant....More

Serafina is a little gem tucked away on Eastlake. It has great ambiance, nice servers and fabulous food for great prices. We loved it so much, we went back twice in one week. Happy hour is 4-6, and they have great house wines for $6...More

From appetizer to dessert, every item was excellent. Timing was perfect with each course arriving as the prior was completed. Will definitely return.

No matter if you eat in or out, Serafina in East Lake will give one of the finest Italian/Mediterranean experiences anywhere. Try the Cozze or Polpo appetizers, the Gnocchi, or the Cappa Sarte. Pricey? yep. Worth it? yep. Excellent wine list and the service is...More
