Serafini's is one of Erie's oldest Italian restaurants.
It was established by Edward (Eddie) and
Assunta (Suzie) Serafini in its original location at
1708 W. Twelfth St. in 1938. Growing beyond
its capacity, a new building was built next door at
1714 W. Twelfth St. The business was handed down
to the second generation in 1964 and owned and
operated by Anthony (Tony) and Gladys Serafini.
Due to the completion of I-79 interchange in 1979,
our third and present establishment was constructed.
After enjoying countless meals with his family
for many years and becoming friends with the
Serafini family, Richard (Dick) Carrara purchased
the restaurant in 1988. By adding his own character
and savvy to the tradition of serving authentic
Italian-American food, Serafani's Italian Restaurant
flourished and continues to be Erie's oldest and
most-loved home-town Italian restaurant.
We're honored to continue an Erie tradition and
look forward to serving you and your family for
many years to come with our delicious variety of
Italian-American cuisine, including many homemade
items such as fresh pastas, signature sauces,
and our much-loved Italian wedding soup!
