Italian
“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!

    Beautiful waterside setting. Bread was stale, Emma was good but had too many tables and the food was just ok!

    Very traditional Italian vibe restaurant. We all enjoyed our food, portions are large and can definitely be shared. Only minor negative is that it is small and we thought there was a bar to sit at but there is none. Would recommend and come back.

    We came here for dinner for our 11th wedding anniversary because we had been here prior with some friends and absolutely enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was fantastic.

    First, our table was not ready. About 4 couples had 7pm reservations and we all had to wait....we waited 20 minutes. I really don't have an issue with that, but the fact that there's "no substitutions" when it comes to what your entree comes with, is not right. We're used to fine restaurants that will basically make what you want and adjust the price of the dish accordingly. I did not want the potatoes or the mixed vegetables that my chicken dish came with. I wanted them to only give me sautéed spinach and they refused. I had to order the side dish of spinach (it was very small) for $9.00. Why not leave off the potatoes and mixed veggies and give me sautéed spinach on the plate with my chicken for $5.00? Not that 4 bucks matters, but it's the point that matters. So, no, we do not recommend this restaurant and will not be back.

    Remarkably delicious food, everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. Additionally the kitchen was flexible and modified a dish due to food allergies. Great outdoor dining patio. I regret that the last time I dined here was 5 months ago - we should come more often!

    My husband and I have loved this restaurant for many years and we still do. However, last night it seemed that the chef was overly generous with the salt. Every dish - especially pasta alla vodka and risotto - were excessively salty.
