Zone 8 signs and restricted timelines can make parking in Eastlake a challenge. Here’s our guide to easy, stress-free parking when you come to Serafina and Cicchetti.
There is ample street parking around the restaurants. The north sides of east/west streets are typically unrestricted entirely. Most of the other street parking is restricted to two hours, which is usually enough time to allow for a leisurely lunch. Just be sure to read the signs regarding restricted hours so that you don’t get ticketed or towed (especially when parking on Eastlake facing north!)
Cheap Commercial Parking
If all else fails, there is really affordable parking above Eastlake Market on Eastlake Ave and Lynn, one block north of the restaurants. Just $3 will buy you a whole evening’s worth of parking.
Free Parking on Sundays
Sunday is a free day! Street parking is completely unrestricted. It’s the easiest day to park and dine at Serafina (Cicchetti is closed on Sundays).
