The North Italian restaurant in Palladium now offers a lunch platter on weekdays. The platter includes an appetizer, salad, pizza and pasta or an entree. You can start off the meal with a soup of the day or a bruschetta platter followed by the Serafina’s signature salads like D. Chopra – mixed greens, pears, cherry tomatoes, corn, asparagus, walnuts with lemon vinaigrette dressing or Avocado and shrimps salad if you love seafood. Their wood-fired oven pizzas are a must try so take your pick from Margarita VIP – imported Italian mozzarella, tomato and fresh basil, Marinara – tomato, oregano and garlic or Alla Norcina – mozzarella, mushrooms and chicken sausage. The mains section also has a choice of pastas or entrees. Try the Penne primavera all’ Arrabbiata, Spaghetti aglio e olio or Chicken breast paillard – organic chicken breast served with arugula and fresh tomatoes.
