sauted with capers, lemon, & white wine served with lemon risotto
with baby arugula, grilled radicchio, avocado, and tomato, all tossed with a spicy cilantro dressing
As per usual I was not disappointed. The grilled calamari was delicious. Had the zucchini florets stuffed with ricotta and they melted in my mouth. The shrimp and pappardelle was a culinary delight
I wish them the best on reopening May the summer be a good one
Excellent! Our server Reisa is exceptional, always there just when you want him to be. The food is always delicious and the sauces are unique and wonderful!
The food is usually delicious but they were out of their homemade pasta and didn’t have the dish I was craving. Also the service is usually better than we had that evening.
Excellent evening with outstanding service as well as food. Never a disappointment . Great place to bring friends. It has become our “go -to” restaurant.
I was so disappointed . I will not go back. Here is why:
The restaurant in itself is dated and reminds me of a glorified pizzeria.
The wait is way to long with a reservation and NOT because the food is so good.. it’s because they are disorganized .
The food.. well mediocre . Do not understand the rave unless you really don’t go out much. It’s really just fair. Not bad but totally not great..
We went because the chef owns casa d’angela and seriously it’s a joke on everyone. He just have bought it for his nephew .. no way is there any comparison. Step up from OIive garden. Sorry folks.. just being honest .. it’s hard earned money we use to go out .. don’t wast it
Great spot for a romantic dinner or a date. Great Calamari
Best veal chop in town
I had company visiting from out of town and was looking for a great restaurant. I’d been to Sette Bello a few times before and knew the food was amazing. Typically the service is great.
This time the service was mediocre at best. The waiter wasn’t friendly, he was short and aloof. He was missing most of the time as well. When I received my food, it was cold. I’m sure I had to have been there on an off night so I’ll try again.
Fantastic food and service. Great chef with some interesting and delicious appetizers. Will be returning shortly. Reasonably priced.
Excellent food and outstanding service
Food is always exceptional
The scallop and pasts special was one of the best dishes I have ever had at Sette Bello. The wine was a wonderful compliment to the meal.
As always Sette Bello did NOT disappoint!! Besides always honoring our reservation time the service (Reze) was over the top!! Food was superb!! I highly recommend Sette Bello for any occasion. I had the branzino which was perfect! Other dishes ordered were the veal chop , scallops dish with pasta and zuppa de pesce. We had some appetizers and dessert as well as wine. It was a great evening with great friends!!
The food is always exceptional!
Best scampi I’ve had in a long time
The pasta and sea scallops dish was divine...Possibly the best scallops dish I have had in a non-seafood based restaurant. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the truffle sauce was rich and flavorful. The wine we selected was an excellent compliment to the meal and very reasonably priced. The chef visited our table and was gracious and welcoming. A local gem!!
Sette Bello is a hidden gem. This is the finest Italian Food in South Florida and I know my Italian Food. I grew up in Brooklyn, NY and often visit my relatives in Italy. Service is phenomenal and you can actually carry on a conversation. Oh by the way the wine list is excellent and a great buy.
Sette Bello exceeds my expectation every time with their homemade pappardelle pasta. On Valentines Day
they gave roses and chocolate berries. What a special touch!!! I highly recommend this awesome restaurant to everyone who is a foodie. You will not be disappointed by the welcome, service and food!!!!!!!
we made reservations for 8pm. confirmed the reservation 3times via email and text. We arrived on time and was told there were 5parties ahead of us. Very similar to what airlines have a habit of doing, overbooking. We were asked to wait outside and we would receive a drink . No server ever arrived.
no apologies or explanation received. Because of our experience I would never recommend this restaurant. Finally, when it started to rain ,we left for another restaurant and had a very enjoyable evening.
Even with a reservation we had a 45 minute wait. Was extremely crowded, tight and loud. One of our favorite dishes, pasta made in a cheese bowl with truffles (very expensive) was cold and fair. The place is a hidden gem but really needs a quiet time for the food prep, service and feel.
Great Valentine's day experience. Glad we thought to make reservations a week out. Was full all night . Veal chop was spectacular as was Chef Marco's cheesecake! Worth a visit for sure.
Valentines so it was very busy.We think they lost our order Because the people next to us were paying their bill and we were just getting served our main dish and we came in before they did.
THE FOOD IS CONSISTENTLY EXCELLENT. THE YELLOWTAIL SNAPPER LIVORNESE WAS THE BEST DISH WE HAVE HAD AT THIS RESTAURANT, REZA, OUR SERVER WAS EXCELLENT ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE STAFF, ESPECIALLY JIM. TRULY, A NEIGHBORHOOD GEM ON THE PRICEY SIDE, BUT WELL WORTH IT.
From the moment we sat down the service and hospitality were both exceptional. The veal parmigiana was delicious, as were the pasta dishes. The apple pie a la mode was sensational. Noise level was perfect. Good for the young and for the not so young! We’ll be back for sure.
The chefs at Sette Bello always prepare the most delicious food. It is our go-to restaurant for special occasions because of the excellent food, service, and atmosphere.
We found a gem! The food was excellent, the atmosphere quaint and very authentically Italian. We were in no hurry, but the service was slower than usual US restaurants - more European long leisurely dinner. Reza was our server and he was very knowledgeable about the menu, but definitely was hurried.
I would recommend a Steward/Stewardess to backup/assist the service staff in table clear/tidy/reset etc..because it was full house and the servers were getting "weeded" having to clear/reset/etc...
As always, food was outstanding, service was excellent, and wine was spectacular. Veal parmigiana and rack of lamb special were done to perfection. 2012 Il Poggione Brunello Riserva (Wine Spectator ranked 95) was the hit of the evening and was very fairly priced. Our compliments to chef, servers, and sommelier.
Great lamb chops and veal chops
We were seated 30-40 minutes before we even got to order wine! We would have ordered a second bottle if they took our order sooner and came back to ask if we wanted another bottle when finished. It was an hour before we even placed our order.
The food was quite good, but it was very busy and the service staff were overwhelmed. Unfortunately, the service made our evening far less than acceptable.
No, I wouldn't go back.
The service was a little slow and it took
A while to get seated. That has never happened before. The food was great.
Settle Bello continues to be the BEST FOOD ANYWHERE we go! Fresh, homemade ingredients made in to outstanding dishes. I had a pasta dish with bay scallops and truffle sauce that was out of this world!! My husband had the citrus marinated shrimp with Chef Franco’s homemade linguine and sauce that NEVER disappoints. And, our waiter Bob makes the evening “perfect” with his excellent service! You can NOT go wrong at this restaurant!!
Excellent meal and service.
This has been one of our favorite restaurants for several years. Last year we had a disappointing experience here, but decided to give it another try because the food is delicious. We had a great meal last night and we're happy that Sette Bello is back on our favorites list!
Another great meal at Sette Bello!! Truly a neighborhood gem!! Never disappointed!!
Asked for a booth and there were 3 open BUT none for me so we had to sit in front of the wine cooler while the booths were open for at least half my meal awaiting more important guests than us! Not sure why someone else's reservation for a booth took precedent over my request. Had a new waiter, Will who did do a decent job for his first night solo.
GREAT food, GREAT atmosphere, GREAT service. Sette Bello never disappoints !!
The food was great, as was the service. I asked for a quiet table and I got one in the corner. We waited for friends who didn’t show and the server was so nice about the delay in ordering.
Have been to Sette Bello several times. The food is reliably good, but never "out of the park'. There are better meals for the price
Unfortunately, our last couple visits have not been close to our earlier experiences.
Service was good but not excellent (on a Sunday & weren’t full). Our server Alberto was relatively attentive, but we were disappointed in how he described their “specials”. Most likely our fault, but Alberto did not mention the PRICE of specials. We chose their Dover sole selection for two in the party and were SHOCKED to see the charge was $59 per plate. Understanding it is a European fish that has to be shipped in, but have never been charged $30-35 (2 times) over normal menu prices. A side of mixed vegetables was the only non-a la cart item served with it. Will demand pricing in future!
Wife became deftly ill 5 hours later and appetizer, bread and wine was shared with everyone else who did not get sick. Apparently the Dover sole?
Ask for prices if not listed on menu!
