This restaurant is a unique dining experience. They have a vast wine selection and extraordinary menu. The staff is very professional and friendly. The staff are very competent at wine pairings. On the weekends they have live entertainment. During the summer they open the outside dining in the courtyard. The bread with olive oil is always a nice starter. There... More

Celebrating my birthday, the three of us had a wonderful meal, full of good flavors. The caprese appetizer has thick cut tomatoes and wonderful mozzarella, the charcuterie was more than enough for the three of us to share. The short ribs were rich and meaty and the eggplant involtini was a taste treat. We enjoyed their manhattan especiale to start... More

Over the years, all of my experiences at Serafina were great - exceptional food, good service, nice vibe. Until this week. We visited for the first time in about a year and prices have just got too high - least expensive wine is $10 a glass - most are $14 to $16. Butter lettuce salad is now $11. And most... More

On a warm summer evening, we sat on patio for dinner and had a very special experience. Service over the top (Fern primary server), pork chop best ever, wife had rabbit pasta (light on rabbit, terrific taste) and the ahi tartare over the top. Highly recommended. Will return - first visit.

We were seated outside in their courtyard with lovely plants. The food was wonderful, I had the pork loin which was cooked perfectly. The service was great and we had a very nice evening before heading off to a concert.

For an upscale Italian dinner, try Serafina. While the menu is somewhat limited, the entrees are attractive and well-prepared. Service is excellent and the restaurant has a good atmosphere. The eggplant dish was excellent, and others in our party had the menu specials, which also received good reviews. Entrees are pricey and there is an extra charge for bread.

If I could give Serafina 6 stars, I would. After many years and many meals there, I have never had a bad experience. The food , service and ambiance are all first rate. Recommendations: crustini, Boar pappardelle pasta, any of their specials. Ask the waiter to pair the wine to your meal. Be adventurous here you will not be disappointed
