Serafina opened its doors in 1991 as an intimate neighborhood restaurant located along Eastlake between the University and Downtown. Its ochre walls, reminiscent of the Tuscan landscape, its intimate, sultry atmosphere, outdoor garden seating and its authentic Italian cuisine make it a favorite with diners from around the Puget Sound and beyond. Serafina's philosophy is simple: Offer the freshest, highest quality ingredients, present the food in an honest and inviting way, and provide the casual warmth and soothing ambiance that echoes the welcoming embrace of an Italian home.
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.

Entertainment
Serafina offers live music every Saturday evening as well as Sunday brunch. Our musicians mostly perform jazz, but music also ranges from blues to bossa nova. The stage is at the heart of the dining room, with many tables enjoying a direct view of the musicians. There is no cover charge to enjoy music, however the dining room is reserved for dinner only until our waitlist is entirely seated. At that point, typically around 10pm on weekends, we are happy to seat guests for drinks and dessert who'd like to enjoy the jazz from the dining room.

My husband and I had left a wedding and were looking for somewhere we wouldn’t feel too out of place being super dressed up... in Seattle that is really hard to find. We had a great meal that was delicious.

The wait staff knew we didn’t have a lot of time and were very accommodating. There was one loud patron who was kind of annoying.

We recently moved to the area and this will now be our go-to Italian spot! Perfect for a date night you're both craving Italian.

Waitress and Valentine’s spaghetti were 6 Star. Waited for 15 mins past our reservation and the “main” braised short rib was average. Everything else from food to service was great as expected.

Valentine special. Great menu. Pretty pushy on table turns but it was one price fits all occasion. Serafina is always good though.

Food was so, so and highly overpriced (ended up getting 2 scallops for $34... absurd!) pasta was dish was dry and nothing special. Our server was excellent and very knowledgeable. C+ otherwise.

Our server (Beth?) was amazing! She was informative, understood our time limitations, also our bread and oil obsession! We all had wonderful meals and will definitely return!! We were going to see Hamilton!! Delicious dinner and spectacular show; a perfect night out!!

I recommended Serafina to the group because they took such good care of my group from the American Lung Association.

I truly appreciated the attention and care that was given to us as a very large group of 22 and small group of 4.

Thank you from the bottom my heart and stomach!! :)

Had not been in at least 10 years. The mussels were amazing. Soup special, amazing. Lasagna, amazing. Even the martinis were on point. Server was perfect. Attentive without annoying.

Left standing by our table near the entrance and told to wait even though it was empty and no one else was waiting. Service was super slow I ordered a seafood dish and asked if I could get a side of noodles with garlic butter but got a no instead. They make homemade pasta for heavens sake!!
Besides that the over all service was bad and slow. I have had two other meals in that restaurant which was outstanding but no more.it was a slow night as well so it's not like they were too busy.
