Newly Revamped Serafina: Best Place for Valentine’s Day Dinner in Kolkata!!

The D-day of love is almost here, and I know for a fact that Kolkata couples have started making plans and looking up Zomato to find the perfect restaurant for Valentine’s Day date. And, with our culinary horizons being expanded, we have a host of restaurants to choose from. Kolkata is now the hub of some fast-growing stand-alone eateries, as well as global brands. Serafina is one such brand which came to Kolkata, having started its journey from New York. It delighted the lovers of Italian food of the city for a while, and then pulled down to shutters to get revamped. Every time I walked past the closed doors of the restaurant in Quest Mall, I used to remember my splendid Sunday brunch at Serafina. And, now, the international food joint is back in town!

At the end of the meal, I realised that:

a) I absolutely loved both the soups, especially with some croutons in them.
b) The Polpette Di Manzo Piccanti, i.e. beef ball starter in a spicy sauce is a must-try.
c) Veg pizza beats non-veg pizza any day.
d) I have a crush on their savoury crepe-rolls.
e) Serafina’s Tiramisu is still to die for.

Final Verdict:

For me, most of my memories involve food in some way or the other. If you’re anything like me, and are in the mood to splurge on some good Italian food on Valentine’s Day, then Serafina is the best place for Valentine’s Day dinner in Kolkata. Begin the evening by titillating your senses with bread dipped in a mix of Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar, Oregano and Parmesan Cheese. End the night on a tipsy note with some fine wine. Serafina will do the rest for you in setting the mood and giving you a memorable, romantic evening.
