“YUM!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2011

Get reservations--at least in the summer months. Lovely decor inside, tho not fancy or stuff plus outside patio tables. Italian-Californian food at pretty reasonable prices considering the quality and quanitiy. Each entree had a suggested local wine pairing suggested which was nice. Calamari appetizer was great, so were the salads. At the table we had a chicken dish, pasta and seafood--all were great. Too stuffed for dessert tho :(

“Good family Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2010

This is the only romantic restaurant in town. Open Wednesday through Sunday, and will need reservations. Cozy and small, so come early or find yourself parking in the street.
Good food, huge portions, (and hats off to their extra expense using earth friendly takeout containers for leftovers) with great service.
Thanks to the staff there for making our 14th anniversary special.

“Spectacular Italian in the mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2009

Located just off Highway 4 in the beautiful town of Arnold, Sarafina's was a great dining experience. We started with the bread and balsalmic dipping sauce with garlic...outstanding! We also tried the calamari, crispy and great dipping sauce. All of the entrees were prepared exceptionally well and served right from the stove. The restaurant is in a log cabin and has a rustic feel. Much better than I would have expected for a small mountain cafe. Everyone was very satisfied and I will definitely go back again!!!

“delicious--local wines with suggested pairings--”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2009

Will definitely go back when in town and bring friends. Very very good. Small, but you can make reservations. A little expensive for Arnold, but not overpriced for the quality and pure deliciousness of the food!
