Sette Bello Ratings and Reviews
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.
This restaurant celebrated their 9th Anniversary the evening we were there. It is a fabulous restaurant. I enjoyed truffles, which is such a wonderful treat. This restaurant NEVER disappoints. Great food! Great service! Consistent!! Chef Franco is a fantastic Chef and lovely gentleman. Courtney continues to be our favorite waitress. She makes our experience PERFECT every time! We highly recommend Sette Bello!
We had yet another wonderful dinner. Thank you to Joe Cadillac and our gracious waitress Courtney. We had family visiting from NJ and they we very impressed with everything. I wish we had more time to enjoy dessert but we had to run. Next time we will plan better. Thank you all.
This is our 3rd time back and I’m happy to say that everything was consistently on point. It was nice to have Courtney again as our server ( I can’t say enough about her professionalism). I had the special of cut shrimp with porcini mushrooms and truffle oil over parppadella pasta again and again it was simply exquisite. We also had the Chicken Pizziola. The chicken was melt in your mouth tender and the portion was more than enough. I ended the meal with an espresso a must have ending to a truly Italian meal.
Reservation was made with the notice it was for a birthday. Server was so out of touch turned into a terrible evening. Setto offered nothing to help make it a special evening. Next day was at a breakfast place and later at a happy hour place. Both made a happy event happen for another customer. As a regular customer of Setto belo very sad
1st time. Asparagus app. was very good. I had veal marsala, my wife, chicken marsala. Both dishes very good. Just not great. The marsala sauce was very thin/watery, no body. I had a side of angel hair & pomodoro. Also good, just not great.
Will be going back another time to try other things.
I LOVE this restaurant. Feels like home when greeted by Joe Cadillac. And served by the wonderful waitress, Jessica. Food is outstanding and the kitchen could not have been run better. Never had pasta served at such a hot temperature. Serves only wine and beer but the wine list is very good. (Kind of missed a pre dinner martini.). Fantastic pastas and veal dishes. Yummy asparagus salad and grilled octopus!!
