Had dinner at Serafina again. This is on our "visit often list." As usual had a great dinner. My wife and I had misto to start, larger than in the past, and now served in a bowl. Fresh and tasty. I had the daily special, a tenderloin, cooked perfectly and paired with a nice selection of root veg. The steak... More

This is the best Italian food I have ever eaten. The location is very cool and the servers are all very local. There is a real buzz and great atmosphere too. I strongly recommend a reservation as the locals sell it completely out on the weekends.

Having eaten at Serafina at various times over many years, it is always a joy and treat to come back again for dinner or lunch. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, no uber-modern décor or over the top noise. The Italian food shines and service is top notch. Enjoyed a great Old Fashioned from the bar on this trip. Highly...

Have been here a couple of times during my visits to Seattle and every time loved the spread they have. They keep refreshing their menu often but every menu is hand-picked. My husband is a vegetarian but he had multiple options to choose from. The staff is very professional. Highly recommended for Italian food lovers.

I haven't been to Serafina for a ~l~o~n~g~ time -- silly me! What a great place to *uncelebrate* Inauguration Day with a friend. I did the prix fixe with the Cavolo and salame panino; my friend had the Melanzane. Neither of us was disappointed. I will go back sooner rather than later just to have the Cavolo again. The presentation... More

Best restaurant I have been to in a long time. The food was amazing and the wait staff was great. The only negative was the place was crowded (not a bad thing) but really noisy! Had the cavatelli with rabbit and truffle - perfect. Tried the scallops - perfect, the lasagne - perfect, the pesto pasta - perfect, the cheese... More

We went to Serafina with friends during restaurant week. $32 for 3 course (we visit several restaurants every year to try them out). So, $32 x 2 plus tip = $160. Food was very good, BUT, during the meal, a server was serving the group behind our table and evidently spill something. We didn't think anything at the time and... More

Serafina is a very good Italian restaurant in the Lake Union area of Seattle - so it is not downtown. They have a good selection of Italian dishes - including nightly specials. It has very good food quality & quantity - with friendly & attentive service. The restaurant has a neighborhood clientele - located in a residential area - with... More
