One of the BEST Italian restaurants in our area! While very small and you must have reservations in advance, Sette is worth the wait! It's a very small and intimate place where the owner remembers you, the food is amazing and the decor is reminiscent of the quaint restaurants we visited in Italy. Had the broccoli rabe (OMG amazing) and... More

A friend suggested this restaurant to me, which I had never noticed in all the times I've driven by. It is now my NEW FAVORITE! Quaint, delicious food, wonderful service. A real gem. I loved everything about it and will now be returning with other friends, too.

Went on a Wednesday late. Table was ready and staff could not be more accommodating . The Burrata was excellent. Pasta cooked to perfection. The mushroom sauce with the petite filet was the best I have had in years. Only ten tables so a reservation is required. But you will not leave disappointed .

Sette is #7, easy way to recall the address. Easy parking at the B'ville train station. Best part of walking up is the congenial proprietor/ chef. Classic Italian cuisine in cozy ambiance, perfect for slow food and relaxing conversation. The freshness and preparation carry through to the presentation of the dish, where Sette succeeds consistently. I suggest lunch, evenings are... More

Delicious lunch with gracious service. Food is carefully and skillfully prepared. Elegant, but comfortable--good for social or business meeting lunches. Definitely will return.

Thought we would try a new place to dine for my husbands birthday and were extremely happy with Sette! Delicious food and great service. Must try the burrata and risotto....authentically Italian. Less than 10 tables so make reservations in advance...you won't be disappointed!

On Friday and Saturday nights- reservations are a must. They probably only can seat 40 people- tiny place! Food is always good, owner is there usually, and it's a warm intimate spot. Perfect if you're going to the movies after, or before. Triplex is next door.

Sette is just such a wonderful place! It's my restaurant of choice for Mother's Day because it feels like family. The food and service is impeccable and we just love the cozy setting! A real gem of a place!
