Serafina, my favorite Italian restaurant in the city now has a revamped menu. And everything on it is so good! From the refreshing Twisted Orange Mojito, to the earthy and filling Cappuccino Di Funghi – Cream of Mushroom Soup to the mains, each dish is a winner all the way.
The carnivores will love the Anti Pasto Misto, a platter that includes parma wrap chicken, chicken mortadella crostini, buffalo mozzarella, parma ham, grilled zucchini, chorizo and pimento stuffed olives. I am not much of a soup fan but the Cream of Mushroom soup I really liked. This is served with a portion of chicken with mushroom crostini with a generous helping of parmesan cheese.
Serafina always makes great pizzas and the Pizza Pollo Funghi with tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, spicy marinated chicken, shitake mushrooms, onions and chilli flakes did not disappoint. My favorite however was the Brasato Di Pasce – a braised beckti served with spinach and mashed potatoes. After the beckti, the next favorite was the barbeque pork sausage with egg fries. A dish that has pork and egg is kinda tough not to love!
Serafina is synonymous with Tiramisu in Kolkata but they do have some other desserts that are equally good. Crespelle Con Nutella is a new addition to the menu. Nutella stuffed crepes with vanilla ice cream. Something very simple but oh so delicious!
