I was invited to Serafina for Aperitivo. What is Aperitivo? A pre-dinner drink where people in italy meet after work socialize, relax, and nibble as dinner approaches or is overlooked altogether.
Aperitivo is more popular in northern Italy, The Happy Hour offers wide range of salads, cured meats, cheese, bruschettas, cocktails and so on. The Produce meats veggies cheese are pretty good what ever they serve is of high quality.
My review is posted on Zomato please click here to view.
Serafina has incorporated mixture of rustic and modern interiors making it a cosy place to dine. Exposed brick walls, Murals created by an Italian artist, Hard wood floors and cushioned dark wood furniture's infuses character and rustic charm in this space.
Ample seating offers relaxed patio seating overlooking a well stocked bar, two level formal dining area and a secret terrace seating arrangement. A well stocked bar is a prefect place to unwind with a few cold ones. Neatly maintained space, and most importantly the staff being really friendly and attentive truly impressed me.
