As usual, the food was fantastic, and the service impeccable. For an out of the way restaurant, this is one you shouldn't miss out on.

I have to say that this is the best restaurant I've been to in the Ft. Lauderdale area in the last few years. A little hard to find as it is tucked away in a corner of a small mall, but well worth finding it.

The food was good Italian food. Unfortunately, we both had 2 glasses of fountain soda each and we were charged $12. The food just wasn’t spectacular enough for a $71 price tag. The soda price made it clear that we will not return.

Food and service was consistent as usual. But they did change the recipes for their world renown cannoli's. Too bad... they were light and crisp and crunchy but not the ones I had last night.

The dinner was declared excellent by my wife and I and our guest--veal piccata, grilled branzino, and huge scampi, topped off by a bottle of montepulciano di abruzzo. The only minor issue wads the overly aggressive air conditioning on an already cool night. The next time we're in Fort Lauderdale we'll be back.

This is our 3rd visit to Sette Bello and it continues to impress. Every time we return to area, this restaurant is a must-do for us and we always make s pont to come back.
My brother had the shrimp Gambini that were not only some of the largest I’ve seen, but also the tastiest. He then had the Veal Chop special which was wonderful.
I had the Veal Chop parmigiana which was really delicious- first time I’ve ever had one on the bone.
Next time I hope we go with more people as there are so many good things on the menu I’d love to try.

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.
