The ritual of coming together sharing wine and food with family and friends is the central motif in our lives. Italian food has an immediacy, honesty, and warmth; it possesses the spirit of a grandmother's wisdom and love. Italian food isn't about trailblazing alchemy or edible high fashion; Italian food is about staying connected—to each other, to the past, to the earth.
The food, service and ambiance are always superb at Serafina, I have been dining there for many years and am never disappointed.
I did feel that the “large” serving of pasta we received this time was quite skimpy—and by volume a small would have only been about half a cup...
Always great across the board and fab business lunch spot.
Not only amazing food but great service as well! We were celebrating a birthday and more than one person made note of it and made the night very special. Would highly recommend this restaurant (and the duck confit agnolotti).
Everything was delicious.I would recommend it to my friends.
Italian meets the PNW. The dish that I had the other night was spaghetti with Dungeness crab. It was so good. In the PNW, we are blessed with such amazing ingredients. It's nice to see an Italian place take advantage of what's good locally.
My wife had lasagne which was great too. It was the typical Italian version with a bolognese sauce and béchamel. It has super light pasta sheets and was rich & creamy.
The staff there is so welcoming in an authentic way. If I Iived closer, we'd go here all the time.
Serafina is lovely, but the menu was challenging for me. It's very heavy on meat. There wasn't a single vegetarian dish, let alone vegan. And, the meat was challenging even for my meat-loving husband, including rabbit, duck, veal, octopus, and cuttlefish -- choices we'd rather avoid.
I'm surprised that such a fine restaurant can't manage even one excellent vegetable dish or even one pasta dish without meat. This is, certainly, their choice, but we won't be returning soon.
Been coming for 20 year! I drive up from Tacoma because it is my all time favorite restaurant!
We loved our cozy and delicious dinner, the place has aged gracefully, the server was outstanding but the food was the thing, just delicious course after course!
The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. Very friendly and helpful staff! My friends and I loved the ambiance of the restaurant and will definitely be back again!
A fantastic restaurant. Great food, fantastic service, lovely ambiance. Never disappoints.
Excellent food and excellent service. Highly recommend.
The only complaint I would have was the noise level, so loud! The food was fantastic and the service very good
Serafina is one of our favorites, and with a visiting Italian-American friend in town, we knew we had to treat him to a visit. We all had a wonderful time, and our friend loved it! Everything is always on point at Serafina. Thank you!
Serafina is a fabulous restaurant with remarkable consistency!!
Simply put, great food , brilliant service, fair prices. We would go again anytime.
We had a fantastic date night here. Our food was delicious: scallops, charcuterie, and pasta. Our servers were really great. They were knowledgeable about our bottle of wine and even brought us each a complimentary glass of a white wine.
Sadly, we were next to the restroom. Also, a space heater was blasting right next to me, causing major discomfort.
Talk about a place that tries to nickle and dime you out of every penny that you have. Oh you would like the $15 appetizer that comes with 6 crostinis (not nearly enough)? Would you like a few extra crostinis? That will be $3 extra dollars. $25 for a ravioli with 4 raviolis. The waitress was overbearing and mispronounced a lot of the dishes names which was odd. Good food, terrible value
I haven not been to Serafina for several years. It was delightful, with delicious food and excellent service. Will be back soon!
We brought a friend from Toronto and needed a place with a warm atmosphere and solid food. Serafina delighted as usual with a mouthwatering octopus antipasto and rich, earthy tagliatelle pasta secondo that I'm still dreaming about. The service was impeccable, knowing exactly how to be attentive and when to give us room to converse.
There were six of us at the cozy north window table where you can see the passersby as well as the warmly decorated main dining room. The service was excellent, thoughtful and caring and the food was enjoyed by everyone and the wine fit my meal subtly and enhancing. Just couldn't finish my desert but saw everyone else did.
Our server Kyle was amazing. The food and wine were exquisite!
Serafina was lovely, as always. Phenomenal food, perfect service and warm ambience.
Everything was wonderful at dinner. Black garlic gnocchi was fabulous. Roasted brussel sprout dish was another beautiful creation.
The staff went above and beyond to make our date night an individual and romantic experience, the food was phenomenal, and the wine list was exquisite. I have nothing but good things to say.
The food portions we super small for the price and nothing we ate was remarkable !
We still hungry after we got home so ate popcorn .
Serafina was excellent and so nice that they were open in the snow!
The food was absolutely sensational...innovative and complex....from the salad to the dessert we were not dissappointed!! i am still dreaming about the delicious flavors and swooning from the romantic atmosphere :)
Good traditional neighborhood standby. Great staff!
Great waitress. She made it really fun!!!!!
Absolutely FABULOUS!! Our waiter, Kyle was over the top amazing & the food followed suit. I can't begin to describe how wonderful the whole experience was.
Extra bonus points for the locally owned, beautiful array of glassybabies. A different lovely color brightened up each and every table.
Serafina has retained all of the charm and remains at the top of my favorite dining experiences in Seattle.
We always love going to Serafina. Consistently good food and service!
A truly wonderful place for dinner. Very romantic and comfortable.
Outstanding food and service!
Food was pedestrian. Been there many times; this time was disappointing.
Serafina is amazing, there's definitely a reason we go at least 5 times a year. Staff is incredible and the food is amazing.
As great as always. Serafina is the best Italian restaurant in Seattle, so I visit often and the food is always delicious and the service impeccable.
Very noisy! Great food and service, but I could not hear what my companions were saying. More soft furnishings? Sound baffles?
I went with old friends to have good food in a festive atmosphere. All points hit. Our waitress was great.
