Fodor's Review

To many loyal patrons, Serafina is the perfect neighborhood restaurant. And then there's the romance: burnt-sienna walls topped by a forest-green ceiling convey the feeling of a lush garden villa—a sense heightened by the small sheltered courtyard out back. Menu highlights include grilled eggplant rolled with ricotta and basil; asparagus with an egg and truffle oil; and gnocchi with rotating ingredients such as mushrooms, nettle, or beef cheeks. Live jazz every

Friday through Sunday (and the first Wednesday of each month) should be considered a plus, but it can be difficult to hold a conversation while the band is playing. Note that Serafina is close to Capitol Hill, in the Eastlake neighborhood, so definitely spring for the short cab ride here.

Serafina osteria & enoteca Review

The Fodor's review left me feeling this place was overhyped. The ambiance wasn't special, but just workaday, neighborhood-y like you'd stop in if you lived nearby, but wouldn't exactly bother looking nice for. The happy hour menu was a good deal, however.
