Just outstanding! Best service I have had in years. Some of the best house made pasta I have had and kale Caesar salad with soft boiled eggs awesome. Thank you.

Serafina never disappoints. Everything, from the olives to the salad to the pasta, is delicious, and the service is fantastic as well. Would highly recommend the Agnolotti dal Plin, but you really can't go wrong. Will continue to return!

Planning our 50th wedding anniversary week with our two son's and their families for Feb 2016...so 6 adults and 3 children, ages 13, 4 and 2. One son has one child, the other has the two younger ones....so not sure how to arrange this for best pricing! Place looks great for everyone to be able to do their own thing. Do you have three cottages/ condos near one another or ?... Would want to be nearest to beach and gardens. Coming from Portland, Oregon ( and I have never been to Hawaii!)
