Serafina Osteria e Enoteca, Eastlake, Seattle, WA

Serafina opened its doors in 1991 as an intimate neighborhood restaurant located along Eastlake between the University and Downtown. Its ochre walls, reminiscent of the Tuscan landscape, its intimate, sultry atmosphere, and its authentic Italian cuisine make it a favorite with diners from around the Puget Sound and beyond. Serafina’s philosophy is simple: Offer the freshest, highest quality ingredients, present the food in an honest and inviting way, and provide the casual warmth and soothing ambiance that echoes the welcoming embrace of an Italian home.

The ritual of coming together sharing wine and food with family and friends is the central motif in our lives. Italian food has an immediacy, honesty, and warmth; it possesses the spirit of a grandmother’s wisdom and love. Italian food isn’t about trailblazing alchemy or edible high fashion; Italian food is about staying connected—to each other, to the past, to the earth.

Our menu recreates many of the dishes that owner Susan Kaufman has enjoyed in friends’ homes throughout Italy. It is our hope that your dining experience at Serafina will leave you feeling transported to the sublime Italian countryside, and completely taken care of by our sincere, professional staff.

Thank you, Seattle DINING for catching up with the team and helping tell our story! The magic continues at these two Eastlake spots. While the 'family' lost owner Susan Kaufman to cancer, they haven't lost what makes both spots magical.

How America Learned to Love Rosé

Patio season is just around the corner and that means it's time to uncork the rosé! George West of El Pinal Winery in Lodi, California, made what is documented as the first White Zinfandel in 1869. The viticultural commissioner at the time found the wine impressive and began to advocate Zinfandel’s use outside of red wine. For over a century, this pink wine gained little traction.…

There's nothing like connecting with friends over a few happy hour bites! Enjoy our risotto fritters with green garlic, foraged greens, and gorgonzola fonduta.

Spring has arrived at Serafina! Celebrate the turning of the season with a sun-kissed cocktail hour.
