Serraffini's: not quite up to par [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 12 November 1998
Serraffini's: not quite up to par By Roger Burlingame staff writer Recently I visited Serraffini'sTtalji- * lan restaurant (located on W. 12th street) because I heard it was the best Italian restaurant in Erie. I was sadly disappointed. If this is the best Italian food Erie has lo offer, then I suggest going to some other city for Italian food. We sat at the bar for ten minutes before someone came to seat us. It was another ten minutes until we were waited on. And to top it off, ihey didn't have the first three drinks I ordered. This was to be the sad story throughout our meal, with an atmosphere that was more oriented toward quantity rather than quality. With poor service, mediocre food, and a limited selection, this establishment proved to be no more than an overpriced family restaurant. The appetizers we had to choose from were limited to deep tried veggies or shrimp cocktail. So we skipped the appetizers and 1 went straight forshe frsnch onion soup. Hdwever, ft secured" ...

Alumni return to offer advice to communication majors By Rose Forrest layout editor Everyone knows, especially the staff of the Beacon, how disparaging it can be going into the field of communications. Communication majors aren't going to school for the money or the availability of jobs. This Tuesday, November 10, the Communications Club helped a few students out.
