Serafina Boston has officially arrived! After months of anticipation, the latest restaurant venture by industry veteran Seth Greenberg opened its doors to the public yesterday, April 1, in Boston’s Financial District.
Serafina Boston is the first New England installment of the legendary New York City-based Italian eatery. The restaurant, founded in 1995 by Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato, is famous for its use of authentic, fresh ingredients used in its thin-crust pizzas, salads, soups and other light Italian fare.
Guests will find a menu chock-full of Antipasti and Insalate options, including Beef Carpaccio, Beef Involtini, Charred Octopus, P.E.I Mussels, Baby Beets, Avocado “San Pietro,” and Tuna Nicoise.
Serafina’s famous thin-crust pizzas are hand-crafted from XO flour and olive oil imported directly from Italy and cooked in the restaurant’s signature display oven. Combinations available at Serafina Boston include Margherita, 4 Formaggi, Di Fabio, Al Porcini, Tartufo Nero, and Al Salmone. In addition to pizza, Serafina Boston will offer a variety of pastas ($14 to $27) and main courses ($18 to $38).
In the main dining room, guests will find four large booths that seat up to eight guests as well as a mix of wooden tables and chairs. Serafina Boston also offers a downstairs space dubbed “The Vault.” The space was previously used as a bank vault and retains its original metal security door. On the inside, “The Vault” houses two large farmhouse tables that comfortably seat up to a total of 16 guests.
Take a look at the slideshow below for a glimpse inside. If you go, Serafina Boston is located at 10 High Street in Boston. The restauran is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sundays from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.
