Attended a vintage Sangiovese luncheon hosted by Serafina and sister restaurant Cicchetti. Had such an amazing time, that we came back for dinner that night!

Luncheon featured DOCG Sangiovese from vintages 1995 to 2009, paired to perfection with dishes including antipasti (Chickpeas three ways, Sardines, and prosciutto with shaved artichokes and olives), Pork terrine with dry cherries and orange zest, Duck confit agnolotti with morel mushrooms and foie gras sage butter, and lamb prepared two ways (Roasted rack of lamb with rosemary and balsamic reduction, and house made lamb sausage with poached Mission figs). Amazing food and an education from sommeliers Sal and Cheryl.

Went back to dinner and enjoyed superior attentive service without pretention. Enjoyed entrees of seared halibut atop baby squash with a snow pea puree, and pan seared pork chop with a fig reduction. Food matched perfectly with a bottle of Chateau Masur red!

Great day spent with the team at Serafina/Cicchetti!

You gotta go!

Went for lunch and both food and service were excellent. They offer a spring fixed menu for 15$, which was good. We also had salads and the sausage entree, both of which were great.

So this is a big claim...right... But it is true!
We just ate there for Easter and the meal was "Over the Top" excellent! Fantastic menu selection, Superb food, excellent service in wonderful atmosphere. Since they hired Chef Chandler the restaurant has vaulted to a "10" +.
If you get even close to Seattle...don't miss this restaurant. You will be in for the best meal of your life.

What I like to do at an Italian restaurant is when you can just go in and ask if the server or even the chef could just bring out what he or she thinks we would like. That's what our group of 4 did and it was simply incredible. See, sometimes it's the thing you wouldn't think of ordering for yourself that you end up liking the best. Bryan took care of us from start to finish bringing us each course in portions that made sense for 4 people. When we are all eating the same thing and Bryan presents each dish, the whole thing becomes an unforgettable and enjoyable evening. Can't wait to come back to Seattle so I can visit Serafina again. Thanks so much.

Serafina catered the wedding of our son - the courses kept coming. Unique cheeses, flatbreads, home made pastas and fresh fish and veggie dishes. Perfect! Thanks Chef Christian and Maxine!
