Amazing Little Italian Joint

Great food, service, drinks, etc. We have been the last three times we visited Seattle and it never disappoints. The staff is always so friendly and accommodating. I would recommend a reservation. We have only ever been on the weekends and the place is always hopping.

You know how warm and comfy Sleepless in Seattle makes you feel? Serafina will make you feel that way too! It is tucked away on Eastlake not far from where Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan filmed their Valentines Special Movie. The hotel has a Lively Seattle cool to it. The front desk people were fun, our server had a sassy... More

We recently had a family dinner at Serafina. There were six of us and the servers managed to know who ordered what, a plus. My food was not as hot as I like it but I did not complain. The wine list lacked any low or moderate priced reds, in my opinion. Overall it as a pleasant experience.

Had a wonderful lunch with my wife with the best Italian food we have had since our Italian vacation two years ago. We both had Pappardelle Bolognese that was simply prepared but tasted great. Just like the food we had in Florence. They were also sensitive to my wife's food allergy.

Enjoyed an evening dinner here with friends while we were in Seattle. At our request we were seated at a table in the bar area. If you are lucky enough to get our server, Tony, you will not be disappointed (call ahead for eves he works). His knowledge of French (among other) wines, his first-hand reviews of menu items, along... More

My husband and I have been going to Serafina for our special occasion and celebratory place for over a decade now. We even have 2 other couples that join us on New Year's Eve each year as our tradition. The food is beyond delectable and service is impeccable.
