For Fort Lauderdale’s finest Italian eats, head to Serafina Italian Restaurant in Victoria Park. With sweeping views of the Middle River and a comforting atmosphere, there’s no better place to enjoy good food and have some laughs with friends and family. The candlelit trattoria offers amazing lunch and dinner options that use only the freshest ingredients. Meals are served by our friendly, Italian-speaking staff, and in the kitchen, you’ll find an authentic Italian chef.
The hardest decision you’ll need to make when dining at Serafina is what you’ll eat. If you’re in the mood for pasta, consider the Pappardelle Al Bolognese. This tasty dish features wide egg noodle pasta, served with a mixed meat ragu sauce. Making a great Bolognese takes time and we ensure that every minute is well-spent to create a rich and delicious sauce that clings perfectly to pasta.
Pappardelle is the classic choice for Bolognese, allowing for the perfect ratio of noodles to sauce. A combination of meats is used to give the dish enhanced texture, visual appeal, and to create delicate layers of flavor. The use of wide egg noodles allows for maximum sauce coverage and the folds trap small pieces of perfectly cooked meats like beef and pork.
When you arrive at Serafina, you’ll have the option to be seated in our lovely dining room which overlooks the Middle River. Or you choose our Intracoastal waterfront dining on our romantic terrace.
