Sette Bello Ratings and Reviews
Food wasn’t to our taste. I had yellow tail which had strange texture. We had tickets for a movie, so I didn’t have time to wait for a new dinner.
3 others at the table said the meals were unremarkable. Beautiful restaurant, romantic.
Just FYI there is no bar, wine only.
Absolutely phenomenal. From the ambiance to the service to the meal it was the best meal my sister and my parents and I have had in awhile. We are from RI so we have great Italian restaurants near us locally but I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quality Italian meal.
Our dinner was great but we had one problem. One of the guests had just completed chemotherapy and was wearing a cap to cover baldness. The restaurant informed us it was policy that no hats are allowed. Even when informed of the cancer the guest had to remove hat. Exception should have been made
I love this restaurant! I've been here several times over the years with my husband or with friends. It's consistently delicious! Always a great list of "specials". Upscale Italian cuisine, good wine list, nice ambiance, and fair prices for the quality! This visit I tried the grilled asparagus salad and it was outstanding! Had the grilled shrimp special with pappardelle, mushrooms, spinach & truffle oil... Yum! Go there... you won't be disappointed.
Our server did not introduce himself. He would come to the table and then disappear for extended periods. The calamari appetizer tasted frozen. The Caesar salad was too lightly dressed and when we ask for more dressing it was an unappetizing clotted consistency. The best part about the meal was the fra Diablo shrimp. For two people, we ordered one appetizer, one salad, one entree, one dessert, and one glass of wine. The bill came to more than it would have if we had only ordered only two entrees. And yet, we were still charged a sharing/service charge. We had to dispute it with the owner.
I’ve lived in Lauderdale for 20 years and Sette Bello has the best food and is correctly priced for the great quality and quantity of food.
It is possible to have a private conversation without raising your voice and yet it is a friendly ambience, not stuffy.
The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
Personally the only drawback is they do not have a full bar (beer and wine only).
If you’ve never been I highly recommend you go n
Wonderful, creative and familiar menu. All six of us agreed that the food was delicious. Amazing and knowledgeable service. Lovely cozy atmosphere and very conversation friendly. This was our first time at the restaurant yet we felt very welcome and will be going back many times in the future.
We are Canadians who spent 51/2 months a year in Florida, we always make sure to eat at Sette Bello 2or 3 times every time. The lady who serves us was exceptional, I am sorry not to remember her name. The food and service was excellent. All this at a fair price.
