“Exquisite food and wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I went to Sette's on the 10th of October and it was a very good dinner in a stylish and exclusive environment which i enjoyed tremendously! The food was exquisite with Squid for a starter followed by steak. And fruit salad. The wines were of high standards and the staff was friendly and attentive.
I can definitely recommend this place!

“Very good....Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Great food, great wine, attentive & polite staff, (easy to catch their eye, seem to be managed well), and a modern but homely interior with a good atmosphere.
A very enjoyable evening. Well will be back. Thanks.

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Very stylish restaurant, elegant but relaxed atmosphere. The staff is very welcoming and eager to accomodate all your needs. The wine list is intelligent, including very good wines, with a wide range of prices (with a good quality/price ratio). The bar is very cosy. The food is excellent, high quality ingredients well interpreted (the chef enhances the quality of the food rather than masking it with many artefacts). I had chicken liver toast so good that reminded me foie gras, the cod was spotless and the tiramisu was so well made that reminded the one that my mother prepares. Definitively one of the best italian restaurants in London. I will come back soon.

“Excellent food & atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We loved the Sette. Everyone in the group tried some sort of pasta dish, and the homemade pasta did not disappoint with its amazing texture. Raviolis in a brown butter sauce, pappardelle in a seafood vodka sauce, every plate was licked clean. Desserts were also excellent.

“Spoilt for choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We pass this restaurant everyday on the way home from work and the tripadvisor rating encouraged us to give it a go. We booked a table for just before 8 and arrived early but they have a cosy little bar down in the basement (with a quite fantastic photograph on the wall of, co-incidentally, one of the most ecstatic moments of my life) which meant we could have a civilised drink before we went up to our table. They were on a winner before they had begun.
It was mid-week and there were only a couple of other tables taken though this did change while we were there and it begun to fill up an hour later. It did mean, though, that we had attentive service.
I started with the melon, parma ham and figs which was lovely and my fellow diner enjoyed her good sized Caesar salad - we were in fact spoilt for choice and the decisions didn't get any easier as we scanned down the menu. We skipped the pasta/risotto course and dived straight into Halibut (for me) - which was lovely, perfectly prepared and well presented - and Veal Milanese which was also delicious but proved to be a bit much for my companion after her large salad. Luckily I was there to help her out. Its not a complicated dish but easy to get wrong and this was certainly all right. I felt it only correct to give the puddings a try and tucked into a torta caprese, a really grown up chocolate brownie but they'd probably not admire me for describing it so. All this was washed down with a very palatable Gavi Villa Sparina.
The bill did not surprise us; we thought it good value for money and had a very enjoyable evening all round. It's well worth a visit, I'd return just to take another look at that photo in the bar!
