Two couples celebrating new jobs…we shared a Rita’s pizza, and ordered terrific dishes: zuppa di pesce, giant bone-in veal chop parmigiana, and chicken Milanese. Our server Valerie was very attentive and friendly. The two couples sitting next to us were friendly and we got chatting about favorite restaurants and dishes in the local area. We had a lovely time. Highly recommend, Chef Marco’s food is delicious.

Enjoyed our most recent dining experience at Sette Mezzo. I had the pistachio crusted Chilean Sea Bass special. The piece of fish was perfectly prepared and well priced.

Terrible service and terrible food. Have been there multiple times but it has failed horribly. Two of the three dinners were sent back because they were literally inedible. Will not go back here again.

Wow, we just can't get enough of Sette Mezzo. Located in the center of a very unassuming strip mall on State Road 7 in Coconut Creek sits what I consider to be one of the truly Classical Italian Restaurants in the Parkland area. The restaurant is small & quaint, seats about 60 people with a private dining room and romantic outdoor dining available. They have a fresh new menu that is complimented by an excellent wine list. I have said it before, but I have to say it again, Chef Franco Filippone is Truly Gifted. His pride and joy is in preparing food from scratch and using only the freshest ingredients available. For appetizers, I highly suggest that you order the In-house made Cervelatta Sausage. It is made with sausage, roasted peppers and onions. I could have that and a side dish of angel hair as my main entrée. Yes, it is That Good! The Shrimp Arrabiata was incredible and the (U10) shrimp were so perfectly cooked you could cut it with a fork. We also enjoyed the House Sausage and Rappini topped with a Ricotta Salata. For Dessert you must order the Italian Ricotta Cheesecake and Cinnamon ice cream to finish the night.

I can't say enough about this place where it is apparent, the most important ingredient is You!

We frequented Sette Bello on numerous occasions over the past decade and were naturally saddened to see it lost to Covid but we are so very happy to be able to continue experiencing the amazing food that Chef Filippone has to offer at the sister location.
I, as a Chef, enjoyed watching him command his brigade into action and making sure that everything is up to his standards. Take a night off and let Franco’s food transport you to Sicily.
A frequent special and favorite that was offered at Sette Bella was the Shrimp with Porcini Mushrooms and Truffle Oil over Pappardelle Pasta which is simply exquisite. It would really be nice to be able to enjoy this at Sette Mezzo.

This was my first time at the restaurant and I loved it. The food was very good at a great price. What made the biggest impression on me was how nice and friendly the service was. Truly top notch. The only issue I had, a minor one, was the noise level. A little loud.

Everything was great. The squash blossoms were a special app and tasted so good! We got a lasagna, pesto tagliatelle, and sacatini. So good! Tiramisu to go was excellent when we broke into it as well!

7 of us for family dinner for going away for my daughter and Mother’s Day.
Sat down at 7:10
730 we flagged down a waitress to take our order.
Drinks at 8:05
Appetizers at 825
Dinner at 910
A lot of staff on the floor but limited service. They all seemed very confused. They kept blaming service delays on only having 1 bar tender, 1 cook and a 35 person party in the side room. The owner finally jumped in the kitchen around 830ish and then meals for surrounding tables and eventually ours came out. Acoustics in the restaurant are the absolute worst I have ever engaged. You had to yell to the person next to you. Very expensive dinner ($230 for 5 adults (3 drinks total) and 2 small kids meals) for everyone to be restlessly hungry and then distracted by the poor service. Food quality was ok. Nothing extraordinary. Maybe they had an off night?

Wonderful start to finish. Waitress Natalie was excellent. Food tasted like homemade. We had chicken parm, eggplant parm, veal parm and the bronzing special. We all had a pasta side which was excellent. There was a nice wine list with some excellent value. We shared the Chianti Classico which was great.
Place is very clean and we sat inside and was socially distanced.
Been here several times and will return

It was everything we expected having been a fan of Chef Franco.
Once again we had Natalie as our waitress and she was great as usual.
He makes the best homemade cheesecake. Very light not heavy & the cinnamon gelato is the best.

As always, our waitress was friendly and attentive, but didn't hover too much. I had the scallops, which were delicious, but the spinach/potato side was too die for!!! We like to hit Sette Mezzo at least once every couple of weeks. It has never disappointed.

We found this place strictly through Yelp reviews. We were in town for personal business and needed a convenient place for dinner. What a surprise find!!! Entire experience was outstanding. REAL Italian flavors. The best Lasagne we’ve had in a while and the meatballs were amazing. We’ll make an extra drive next time we r in Southern Florida to eat here!!

We have been a frequent customer of Sette Bello while spending our winters in Ft Lauderdale & was saddened to hear it had closed but heard about Sette Mezzo & was anxious to try it. We were not disappointed. Our meal was wonderful it was so good I can’t wait to go back. Also we had the sweetest waitress Natalie who was knowledgeable about the menu & very attentive. When we go again we will ask for her. Also Chef Franco always had the best homemade cheesecake & I was hoping it was still on the menu which it was.

We’ve been several times & have always sat outside. The service is always great-they do a terrific job of training their staff. We love starting with their onion & olive focaccia which is perfectly crunchy & soft inside. I ordered a mahi special which was very good & cooked perfectly. I was a little disappointed in the spinach risotto it was served with. It was more like regular rice as it didn’t have the creamy texture of risotto. The flavor was good & it was definitely lighter, which is better for the diet! We splurged on the Nutella dessert which was delicious-like a calzone filled with Nutella, cut into slices & served with delicious cinnamon ice cream. It’s a nice end to a delicious meal.
