“Disappointed”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

Sette Cucina is located in the lovely town of Bernardsville, NJ. It's a very small space, and quite comfortable although not well heated on a chilly night and somewhat noisy, even with just 20 or so customers. But we found the menu somewhat limited and unimaginative. Three pork dishes, beef stew, fish and veal, along with braised chicken thigh, which I chose. While the food was fairly priced and well prepared, it would be in the restaurant's interest to expand its offerings and be more adventurous.

“Wonderful food but service needs small touches”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

Our first visit. Small menu with wonderful choices. Everything was delicious and nicely presented. Charming and cute with seating for about 30. Service could be improved with some staff education. Since it is BYOB, one of our servers tried to pour a different bottle of wine into our not empty glasses. Also, frequently our silverware was taken away and we had to ask for replacements when our food was served. All that said, we are looking forward to going again!
