Serafina Group restaurateur Vittorio Assaf and his wife, Charlotte, have listed their posh four-bedroom, 5 1/2 -bathroom apartment at the Leonori building on East 63rd Street for $35,000 a month.

The home was designed by Italian architect Misa Poggi, who also designs for Loro Piana Interiors.

The apartment is above Madison Avenue and has Central Park views, a 40-foot-long living room with a fireplace, a chef’s kitchen and 12-foot ceilings. There are also Venetian-plastered walls, a large domed entry and lots of storage space. The rental is available starting June 1.

The Leonori building is a Beaux-Arts structure that dates back to 1901.

The Assafs live in a penthouse that they own a few blocks away.

Listing broker Reba Miller of Core declined to comment.
