Comfortable and unpretentious, Serafina is an Old World Italian restaurant with a multi-regional menu of traditional Italian cuisine and fine wines and has been a Seattle favorite for years. Tucked away in the Eastlake neighborhood and one of the leading culinary draws of the area, along with the adjacent Cicchetti Kitchen and Bar, which is perfect for pre-dinner drinks, Serafina draws inspiration from the rustic traditions of the Italian countryside to produce an eminently satisfying menu. Signature dishes include pumpkin-leek ravioli, homemade veal meatballs, slow-cooked lamb shanks, and braised rabbit with Parmesan polenta as well as wild-mushroom risotto, steamed mussels, and ragu of duck, veal, and pork. Desserts include sweet profiteroles and a decadent chocolate-hazelnut torte, and the charming vine-entwined courtyard is ideal for alfresco dining in the summer.
