Serafina was conceived while Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato were traumatically lost at sea.
Suffering from bitter cold, violent weather and severe hunger pains, the two stranded friends fantasised about creating the perfect pizza.
Using Fabio’s architectural genius to construct a revolutionary oven and Vittorio’s artistry in Neapolitan cuisine, the Serafina idea and brilliant partnership was born.
With an uncertain immediate future, they swore to open a restaurant serving the best pizza and pasta in the world if they were to survive the terrifying ordeal.
In 1995, they fulfilled their promise by launching the very first Serafina.
Inspired by the authentic approach found in Northern Italian food using only the highest quality ingredients, Serafina delights its diners with a creative twist on simple and original Italian dishes.
With a wide selection of homemade pastas, simple marinated meats, fish and vegetables and an array of authentic pizzas.
The unique combination of an intimate setting in one of Dubai hotspots with trendy Italian music, charming service and deliciously good food, is why Serafina is so popular around the globe.
