Good pizza on Colorado Boulevard

My wife and I stopped at Settebello on a coolish Sunday. We decided to split a four cheese pizza, and it was good, maybe not quite as cheesy as I might have hoped, but still, good. The ambiance is spare and on the hip side, the service a long way from the quickest or most attentive in town... read more

It's more somewhere between 3.5 and 3.75 but I can't give 4. The crust was good, that's not the problem. It was thin enough and chewy. I have never been to Naples but I believe the reviewers who say it's the real thing. I, for one, am more of a paper thin crunchy crust, as we had in Roma. I... More

I lived in Naples for a year back in the late 80s and loved Neapolitan pizza. On returning to the US we tried numerous places advertising wood fired pizza but was typically disappointed. Settabello came to Pasadena and we have become regular customers. I could go every week for the Pizza Margherita and a cold beer. Monday Margherita night is... More

My wife and I found this location about a year ago, and we can't stop coming here. The pizza's are about the closest thing we had to pizza from Italy that we've found anywhere else. The Salads are amazing are amazing and fresh and the drinks are not very common, bit in a good way. Try it, you won't be... More

Went there 3 times. They really have great pizzas. The Margherita DOC really tastes like the real thing. On top of that they have a good choice of draught beers and wines. Service is nice and quick. Highly recommended!

We've been to Italy, and this is the most authentic, thin, "forno" cooked pizza we've had in the Inland Empire/Pasadena. The Margarita is sauce and cheese, and was very traditional Neapolitan. Absolutely loved it! The meat eaters in our group liked the Settebello meat pizza, which was delicious and flavorful. The third pizza had arugula, and we also loved it,... More

I've been eating at Settebello since they opened and have enjoyed it. I just returned from a trip to Naples, Italy where pizza was invented and from where Settebello tries to pattern their pizza. I've got to say that Settebello is as good as anything I tasted in Naples. In fact, I had pizza at Brandi where they've made pizza... More

I happened upon Settebello and am glad I stopped in. The pizza was delicious, and I loved that the crust had a toothy, chewy texture. If it had a bit more cheese it would have been perfect! The friendly staff made me feel right at home.

Visited this place last year and again this past Thursday. We had a party of 7 and ordered quite a bit - appetizers, salads and a variety of pies. Although the food here is decent, I seem to recall a tastier experience last year. Food came out quickly, service was great, but if I'm paying top dollar for pizza, the... More

Its a Mid-range, reasonably priced pizza chain. They are accommodating, as to changes, serve quickly, and offer a good deal during 'Happy Hour'......a 6 in pizza for $5. Plus a couple of other $5. Items. Gets crowded and somewhat noisy after 6:15-6:30 pm.
