About the restaurant
“SERAFINA” in Italian translates to both “angel of the sea” and “fine evening”. Those who have been there completely agree! This beautifully romantic, candlelit trattoria is nestled in Victoria Park on a gorgeous view of the Middle River. Its doors open to the most irresistibly charming ambiance and aromas of fantastic Mediterranean flavors. Serafina has a covered and heated patio so guests can enjoy their surroundings in every season!

We went to Marti’s before a concert. The location is perfect, both on the water and right at the theater. The food was good, considering it being a prix fixe menu. We were not expecting a gourmet meal, but the restaurant exceeded our expectations. When we will be attending the theater next time we will definitely be back. The restaurant is perfect for pre-theater dining.

Absolutely excellent service from start to end!!! Eugene was amazing! We will be back! Food was traditional and exceptional! House brand wine was surprising very good! We will be back! In probably a week or so. Can possibly be a more routine stop for a drink and going thru every item on the menu one by one. We expect it will ba as great as our first experience. Thank you!

We came for outdoor dining in the evening and got swamped by flies. We had our main entrees packed to go and brought them back home to eat. The food was great, service was solid, and location is beautiful….but the flies were unbearable!
