“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!

Service and food were excellent. Was disappointed that our quite corner table for dinner became extremely loud after a party of about 15 came in for corporate dining.

Bianca was lovely...she deftly recited the specials to “ try to change our minds” about what we intended to order. And, she was successful!! My husband had snapper With angel hair pasta and said it was quite good. I stuck with the osso bucco and risotto which was excellent. Bianca also gave us a suggestion for a restaurant in Islamorada
where we intended to visit the next day. We went there and really enjoyed it.
it was a special occasion, our 49th wedding anniversary. Several of the ladies sang to us and we were treated to
tiramisu..It was incredibly light and fluffy and delicious!
Great place to eat. You should try it!!

Table was on time as requested, "scenic view" of the Ft. Lauderdale Intra-Coastal waterway. Good wine list, a bit on the high prices, recommendations by the waiter were very good.
The entrees were excellent and we had an excellent time.

I could not think of a better place to be on Valentine's Day for dinner. The owners are so accommodating and the view is beautiful! The food is always delicious and I've never had a bad meal here.

Service was terrible and our food took over an hour - we looked around and saw tables that got sat after us and they had their food. I realize things happen but we were aggravated. I got the stuffed pork chop and it was very tough, my jaw hurt after my first bite. However, they did take it off the check. My husband got the lobster ravioli and it was OK. I enjoyed my bottle of champagne and we left and had dinner elsewhere. Needless to say I wont be back.

The food was amazing! Our waiter was great, although where our hostess decided to sit us for a “Valentine’s Dinner” was not great at all. No dinner date privacy. I wish they would rearrange their outdoor seating area.

Don’t let the front door scare you away! Great food! Fun place and nice homey feel. View was of very large boats not the water. Wonderful pasta!

This restaurant is quickly becoming one of my favorite restaurants, hands down. The food is amazing and the location on the water refreshing. We each had one of the specials that night and each was so amazing- the veal Parmesan was hands down incredible, the gnocchi that went with the stuffed pork chop likely the best I have had when my friend shared and my snapper with artichoke and lemon wine reduction my favorite as always. I recommend this highly.

The fish dishes need to have less additives on them. Leave the fish just as grilled or blackened. Adding things takes away from tbe originality and flabor of the fish
