Serafina Italian Restaurant serves up the best gourmet dishes in Fort Lauderdale. The candlelit trattoria on the water offers an extensive lunch and dinner menu that includes a wide variety of delicacies, including their popular fried calamari.

Calamari, which translates to “squid” in Italian, is a tasty appetizer served with fresh tomato sauce. Often found in Mediterranean cuisine, fried calamari is sliced, battered, and deep-fried to achieve a crispy exterior and tender interior.

At Serafina, fried calamari is available on both our lunch and dinner menus. We use only the freshest ingredients available, prepared by our authentic Italian chef and served by our friendly and personable staff.

Calamari is known for its mild and slightly sweet flavor that doesn’t overwhelm the senses. It can be prepared in a variety of ways, such as grilled or broiled, but deep-fried is an undisputed favorite.

Fried calamari rings are one of the most common ways to prepare and eat calamari all over the world. Dip a ring into our fresh tomato sauce and enjoy the impeccable fusion of textures and flavors as they hit your palate.
