It was our first time there. It started off with a great server and went down hill. Portions were not large and prices were pretty expensive for a strip center. Spaghetti was good but chicken Frances and chicken Marsala were just ok. Bread was amazing.

I had a family dinner. It is an excellent peaceful place. The social distancing was excellent. We had a three course dinner. First the bread was brought in a paper bag, and it tasted great. Then calamari was excellent and it came with a delicious marinara sauce. The grilled veal shop was exquisite, it came with delicious vegetables. The fettuccine alfredo with the jumbo shrimp was excellent and the chicken Parmigiano with spaghetti with red sauce was delicious.

What a lovely surprise. Fun and happy staff.
Had calamari steak appetizer. Delightfully light with a freshness that can not be described. Beef carpaccio with a light hint of truffle oil.
Had sea bass special and veal chop special. Both were mouth watering. Not a bite was left.
Finished with tirramasou.
You will not go wrong here.

Happy I went there the food quality, menu and service were among the best I’ve had in South Florida.
Everything we ordered was a home run. Try the Veal Milanese the best I’ve ever had. What a pleasant surprise and a great find.

Sat inside because it was a warm night outside. The food was incredible- Meatball appetizer over eggplant topped with ricotta cheese. Warm bread right out of the oven, lightly breaded calamari & seafood. The Risotto was top tier too.

The service was excellent- the waiter was from Italy and can really feel transformed as if you are sitting in an Italian Cafe.

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

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.

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

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.

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 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.

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.
