A bottle of a nice Barbera from that place round the corner to accompany the courses that Allan prepared this evening made for another outstanding dining experience.

Always a local favorite. Food is delicious and the total bill is reasonable since it is BYOB. Missed seeing the owner Alan on this visit, but the staff did a fine job.

We had dinner with friends, and as usual the service and food was excellent. We all had smoked Norwegian salmon as an appetizer, and it was delicious, served with thin sliced onions and capers. Some of us had the haddock entree. It was simply extraordinary, perfectly cooked, moist and light in texture. For those interested in fresh fish, cooked to perfection, Sette is the place to go. Others had the lamb ragu pasta, which is also very special. All in all, a wonderful experience.

Outstanding; both courses, the Trofie al Sugo d'Agnello and the Costata al Forno, were prepared to perfection. Allan was away this evening; nonetheless, his team gave me a wonderful dinning experience.

Perfect. We shared a delightful ricotta gnocchi appetizer. The lamb ragu trofie was excellent, and the poached sea bass was perfect. We finished with a freshly prepared profiterol, simply outstanding. And, the service, as always, was very professional.

Disappointed that neither the gnocchi nor burrata cheese appetizers were on the menu.
Food and service were excellent, as always.
Patrons should be advised that the bruschetta is not complimentary.

Top notch all around. Best Italian in Morris County and that's saying a lot. Food and service were excellent. We get there at 6 pm and were the first table seated. By 7 pm all 8 tables were filled and it was very noisy despite the menus request to speak quietly. Our first time at Sette and we'll be back soon.

The food is fantastic and very creative. The only request I would make is include some kind of chocolate in your desert menu. Considering where the Chef studied you would think chocolate would be a given on the menu. Other than that I would recommend this place to anyone.

The food was outstanding. We dine in NYC when going to the the theater and Sette would be in the company of the best of NYC. The restaurant is small and very intimate and it was so nice to enjoy a great meal in a quiet atmosphere. The owner greeted us and instantly made us feel special. I cannot wait to return to Sette.

Excellent meal and service. Small and intimate. Extremely cold night and when door would open and close could get a little chill. However, not enough to ruin an outstanding meal.
