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

We recently were in Eastlake on a Sunday and decided to make reservations at Serafina's for brunch. I am so glad we did, I have rode by this location many times and the outside always looked so inviting. It was a lovely Sunday afternoon so we were able to sit outside in a charming back courtyard. The hostess was extremely... More

We recently had dinner in a large group at Serafina. Of course there is absolutely no parking set aside so you're on your own to find a spot in the residential areas. You might luck out or not. The restaurant inside is beautiful and has outdoor seating. It's much larger inside than it looks. We sat inside and the windows... More

Just had a late lunch here today, I was unsure of what to get here so I let the waitress pick the food for me. Both the salad and pasta were very good. Service from Amilla was most excellent.
