Yes, I've eaten pizza a Napoli and all over Italy and the US. Settebello is by far the closest Napoletana Pizza in the US only to be topped by Pizzeria Bianco in AZ. At Setteobello, it just comes down to basics. Excellent cocktails, tasty light appetizers and delicious simple pizza. My favorite is the Margherita DOC with crushed tomatoes, buffalo... More

We were going to the movies and were a little short on time. Pizza joint on the corner was crowded, loud and counter service. We wanted a quiet place that had table service and cocktails. We found a great restaurant just down the street, Settebello's. Lovely, large place with central bar with TVs. We told the server that we were... More

The food is a little pricey, but maybe worth it. The antipastos are creative and high quality. the pizzas are top 10%. Awesome desserts, save room for more than one. Always good service. An interesting co-ed washroom. Good location on Colorado, by the Playhouse.

By this I mean 100% certified authentic sicilian style. They dont even have pepperoni, as that's not authentic. But they do have buffalo mozzarella cheese. The sauce is spread thin, but is Perfecto! My Margherita DOC pizza came with just : Crushed Tomatoes, Fresh Buffalo Mozzarella, Basil, Parmigiano Reggiano, Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It was great. My friend had: the... More

This is my second visit to Settebello and this time we tried it for lunch. It's still five star pizza. The temperature outside was in the 90s and as you passed the brick oven, heat was pouring from it. But it was nice and cool where we were sitting. The service was excellent and I really enjoy the decor which... More

If you love pizza and our family does, be sure to give this restaurant a try. The pizza is thin crust, not crispy but a little on the doughy side and not overwhelmed with toppings or sauce. The flour and meats are imported and the chef's come up with the perfect combination on each pie to make them wonderful. The... More

4 of us shared 2 pizzas and 2 salads and it was perfect! The beet salad was interesting, delicious and unusual. The pizza of the month was fantastic with cherries, cheese and prosciutto and the Capricciosa with Tomatoes, Prosciutto Cotto, Artichoke Hearts, Roasted Mushrooms, Olives, Mozzarella, Basil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil was amazing as well!

Run, don't walk to this place! I am Italian and have lived in Italy for an extended time. From my first bite, I was transported back to Italy. True thin crust pizza cooked to perfection. We ate our individual pizzas the true Italian way, with a fork and knife and it was heaven. The flour is imported from Italy -... More

Far from being an Italian pizza, but tasty. Already the Menu sets you in an alarming state through the incorrect spelling of Italian names and the awkward American inspired combination of ingredients. I had a Diavola, which spiciness (searched purposely) helped to hide most strangeness. The dough was too soft and I ask myself which yeast was used. Not at... More
