What’s on the Menu:

  • Ravioli Alla Salvia (Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli with Sage Butter Sauce)
  • Tomato Bruschetta

Two men lost at sea vow that if they survive, they’ll open a restaurant honoring the Italian roots of their parents and grandparents—and a year later, that restaurant is the hottest dining ticket in New York. Sound like fiction? It’s real life, and Fabio Granato and Vittorio Assaf are here to tell you the tale and teach you to make some extraordinary Italian classics along the way. Join them to learn how to make a classic, all-purpose pasta dough that you can use for countless homemade pasta dishes. They’ll transform it into ravioli, a shape that can be intimidating for home cooks—but doesn’t have to be. They’ll show you how to roll your pasta either with a rolling pin or with a pasta roller, how to cut your ravioli to minimize waste, and how to ensure that your spinach-and-ricotta-stuffed bundles of goodness don’t burst open when boiled. You’ll learn one of their favorite pasta sauces, a couldn’t-be-simpler combination of butter and sage. The result is a plate of ravioli you’ll be proud to serve—if you can bring yourself to share, that is. Plus, Fabio and Vittorio will also whip up a classic Italian small bite: tomato bruschetta with roasted garlic oil. The essence of summer in a bite, these bruschetta prove that sometimes, the best cooking involves almost no cooking at all.

About Fabio & Vittorio:

Founded by Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato (both from Italy) in 1995, Serafina Restaurants is a collection of Italian eateries that started with the acclaimed Serafina Fabulous Pizza on the Upper East Side of New York City. Following the success of their first restaurant, the duo quickly expanded Serafina across Manhattan and into a global presence; specializing in contemporary Italian cuisine crafted with quality ingredients and fused with an energetic vibe at each location. The Serafina family of restaurants includes the flagship Serafina brand, Serafina Express, Café Serafina, Farinella, Brasserie Cognac and Bar Penelope. With 20 locations across the eastern U.S. and in eight different countries, Serafina remains an affordable luxury built on the foundation of creating a welcoming and social environment for all. Our motto is "A Home Away from Home.” Their journey and brotherly partnership began on a crisp but sunny day on the North Fork of Long Island, when they got stranded at sea on a small sailboat. After hours of drifting and before being saved, it gave birth to the concept and vision of Serafina. Their work began the day they were back in Manhattan after the life-changing but bonding ordeal.
