The moment you enter Serata Restaurant you can feel the love of life and food in the air. The restaurant is a labor of love and collaboration of the Ferrara and Gironta families who have traveled Italy, the Mediterranean and stateside to perfect their craft and share what they know about eating, drinking and enjoying life with you — the customer.
Start off with one of the tasty antipasti dishes, such as Zucchini Squares, seasoned ricotta cheese wrapped inside grilled zucchini, finished with truffle oil and aged balsamic vinegar (served chilled); or the Stuffed Artichoke, stuffed with a special blend of seasoned breadcrumbs. The Tricolore Salad, a combination of baby arugula, Belgian endive, radicchio and toasted pignoli nuts in balsamic vinaigrette, is also a favorite.
Enjoy choosing from a large selection of delicious entrées. The Pasta Serata, pappardelle pasta served in a white truffle oil cream sauce, parmesan and pecorino cheese wrapped; or the Zuppa di Pesce Fra Diavlo, clams, mussels, scallops and shrimp served in a spicy plum tomato and white wine over pasta, are heavenly. The Chicken alla Vincenza, morsels of chicken pan-seared and covered with a sauce of artichokes, onions, garlic, white wine and chicken broth, is also popular. The Veal Valdostana, red wine marsala, mushrooms, melted mozzarella and prosciutto; and the Baked Norwegian Salmon topped with Italian bread crumbs are prepared to perfection.
With this deal in hand, take a seat in their Long Beach location and let Serata serve you food prepared with the best local ingredients and with love!
