Shari Woods, executive chef and owner of Serafina, on the Middle River.

Serafina Waterfront Bistro 


This charming trattoria isn't easy to find, but it's worth tracking down for a lovely Italian meal and a romantic setting whether you dine inside or on the patio overlooking Middle River. New owners have taken over, presenting authentic Mediterranean dishes paired with warm, professional service. It's intriguing to watch your waiter carefully fillet the whole red snapper; our other faves include roasted red pepper soup, the silky house-made pasta and a delicious cheesecake made with whipped ricotta and an almond crust. End with complimentary, house-made limoncello that will make you dream of Italy.
