Not every story about a pact made while lost at sea ends in the creation of a successful chain of Italian restaurants. Actually, it's entirely possible that the story of Serafina owners Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato is the only such story. As the tale goes, while adrift in a sailboat far from home and dreaming of the perfect pizza, the two came up with their plan: survive their ordeal and prosper, and make that vision a reality. And so it was. Today the duo hasn't just opened a pizza place, but more than a dozen thriving Serafinas on three continents where the broad selection of Northern Italian food options is on equal footing with the founders' incredible story.
