If you either live in/around the Somerset Hills in New Jersey, or plan a trip this way, you must have dinner at Sette. This restaurant is both elegant and as comforting as mom's kitchen (if your mom is Italian).
We simply love Sette. Everything about this restaurant is exceptional, the staff, ambience and the certainly the food.
My only regret is that my Italian is so rusty I'm embarrassed to express how happy I am when dining at Sette to the staff in Italian. However, if you're inclined for a bit of dialect from Napoli...mangiare e fatta grosso.

The food, service and environment are great. Very attentive to wishes and changes to accommodate dietary needs. Well spaced tables, even in this small restaurant. Go to location for a BYO with thoughtful dishes and a creative menu.

A small and precious gem. Italian hospitality and authenticity. A brilliant, unique, original well rounded menu. Love ‘bufala e speck’, ‘orecchiette baresi’ and ‘costata di manzo’. A little detail that speaks volumes...no spelling errors in the full Italian rendition of SETTE’s menu. Not an insignificant one when considering those present in supposedly renown restaurants.

If you haven't been to Sette yet, you must add this wonderful restaurant to your list. The dining room is small, so plan ahead.

Sette is one of the most authentic Italian restaurants you will find. Only the finest ingredients, an incredible menu, and a warm and welcoming staff.

We started with Smoked Italian Prosciutto on a bed of fresh arugula. The prosciutto melted in your mouth and the vinaigrette was light and flavorful. And, a beautiful arugula fritter with a lovely cheese and butter.
The main course consisted of Tagliatelle Bolognese. Beautiful pasta and in rich ragu. Perfect! We also had a special braciola of beef. It melted in your mouth, was beautifully prepared, subtle, delicious with a wonderful tomato sauce.

We finished our meal with a millefoglie with a beautiful cream. It was unbelievably delicious, freshly made (pastry warm, cream just right) and while I was rather satisfied, I had to finish this wonderful dessert. We also had profiteroles with a delicate cream filling and a delicious chocolate/berry warm sauce...I'm salivating just writhing this review.

An expresso and cappuccino and we called it a night.

Remember to bring wine, but if you don't there's a wine shop within walking distance.

Wow!

Still among the best restaurant in the country. I'm from California, if I'm within 500 miles of
Bernardsville, NJ (Suburb of New York City), I'll detour to go to Chef Alan Russo's 'Sette'.
I always ask for the six course the tasting menu. In all of the years I have gone to 'Sette' I've never had the same meal twice! Amazing culinary experience. I wish he'd open a restaurant in Southern California!
