With locations in the heart of Atlanta and Boca Raton, Serena Pastificio is a sophisticated yet approachable nod to the best of Italy with a focus on coastal seafood and housemade pasta artfully created in the concept’s scratch kitchen. Inspired by the tastes and flavors of Northern Italy, Serena Pasitificio departs from traditional American-Italian cuisine and delivers a menu headlining a seasonal selection of dishes featuring delicate sauces, lighter meats and natural flavors from high quality ingredients. Driven by regional flavors, the housemade stuffed and fresh-cut pastas anchor the menu alongside fresh seafood, chicken, veal and beef entrees, craft cocktails and an expansive wine program.



Serena Pastificio’s seasonally-driven menu transports guests to the coastlines of Northern Italy with a selection of antipasti, salads, stuffed and fresh-cut pastas, fresh seafood and meat entrees. Rooted in rich Italian history, both locations boast a “pastificio,” a pasta station where the team’s pasta makers prepare pasta by hand, with Atlanta’s version of the station sitting front and center, welcoming diners to observe the team’s artistry upon arrival. While housemade pastas remain the focal point – think Mezzelune di Aragosta (lobster ravioli), Gnocchetti Sardi (gnocchetti with sausage) and Fondutelli al Tartufo (fondutelli with truffle) – the menu also showcases additional Northern Italian comfort foods like Gnocchi al Pepe Nero featuring black pepper gnocchi with balsamic grilled wild mushrooms, arugula, parmesan, porcini oil & chive, Pollo alla Cacciatore featuring braised airline breast, cacciatore ragu & basil, Salmone e Lenticchie with black beluga lentils, calabrese chili & orange-thyme emulsion and an herb marinated Branzino served with grilled baby leeks, fennel, Meyer lemon, vermouth butter sauce & micro parsley. 



Serena Pastificio’s beverage program is carefully curated with a mix of signature takes on classics alongside seasonal, ingredient-driven cocktails, zero proof beverages and a globally sourced wine list. Brought to life behind the bar, standout signature cocktails include the Martini Pastificio with Engine gin or Bustletown vodka, reserved pasta water & olive brine, an Italian Espresso Martini mixed with espresso liqueur, vodka, espresso & simple syrup, plus the concept’s Italian take on the classic Margarita made with tequila blanco, Aperol & orange liqueur. All are offered alongside seasonal favorites with playfully inspired names steeped in folklore and vibrant flavors from fresh ingredients. The concept also curates an impressive wine program heavily influenced by Italian selections alongside U.S. varietals and imports from France, Spain, Germany and Argentina.



Nestled in the newly revamped Colony Square in the heart of Atlanta’s Midtown neighborhood, the coastal Italian destination is appropriately anchored by a prominent “pastificio” where onlookers can observe the culinary team artfully preparing the restaurant’s housemade pastas upon entering the restaurant. Designed by renowned Chicago design firm Studio K Creative, the 6,635-square-foot oasis then welcomes guests into a vibrant space complete with an oversized bar, a main dining area, semi-private seating and a 36-seat private dining space, all adorned with warm white oak flooring, an assemblage of delicate accents, oversized white oak beams across the ceiling that evoke the Italian countryside, garden-worthy lush greenery and dried botanicals and a show-stopping hand-crafted resin leaf aerial installation (featuring 24,000 leaves!) that creates a canopy of reflected light in the space. The space also dons a secret garden-inspired outdoor patio featuring seating beneath a trellis with string lights, live greenery and weather accommodating heat lamps and fans.



Situated in Boca Raton’s downtown neighborhood in the area’s bustling and scenic Mizner Park, the design-forward 5,000-square-foot restaurant stuns with a mix of decorative porcelain floor tiles, warm wood tones, white leather banquets and subtle coastal accents throughout, all topped with a hand-crafted resin leaf aerial installation that creates a waterfall of reflected light through the space. Complementing the main dining room’s 500-year-old reclaimed Chinese Elm flooring, the space boasts an anchoring bar, a “Cocoon Lounge” offering cocktails and lounge seating beneath an oversized wooden canopy, accents of acid-washed Italian marble slab flooring throughout the bar and lounge areas, a show-stopping wine wall and a 23-seat bar. Alfresco, the restaurant also offers two breezy patios alongside the team’s very own working garden, where fresh herbs and vegetables are grown and then incorporated into various dishes.
