A wonderful restaurant. Excellent food, but limited menu so you need to check it before you go. Please support the restaurant. They're doing an excellent job under difficult circumstances and deserve to be in business post-Covid.

We were outdoors due to dining restrictions during Covid, and it was really quite nice. Fresh air, the night sky and being under a canopy enhanced the ambience. The food, as usual, was outstanding, starting with the signature bruschetta - tomato atop warm, well seasoned, soft Italian bread. Lamb chops were perfectly cooked to taste and the pork medallion had a tasty slice of prosciutto inside.

Always a great time at Sette. Food is fresh and delicious. Because indoor dining isn’t permitted at this time, the reconfigured outdoor space is lovely. The atmosphere was akin to dining at a taverna in Greece.
Shrimp dish (appetizer) was excellent, as was the Mediterranean sea bass. Although delicious dinner rolls are served, have the homemade bruschetta as a complement to your appetizer selection!

We ate there for my birrhday celebration. Alan Russo is a class act. The food was fantastic. We ate outside in the european alley. Perfect.
Can't wait to go back.
Hope he is able to open his cozy little restaurant inside soon.
Thanks

Always expect excellent food here but last night our lamb while tasty was overcooked. Everyone is allowed an off night especially during COVID and their off night is better than most. We will happily be back.

I had to rate the ambience lower than their normal indoor dining, but the team has done a great job to make the best of a difficult situation with limited outdoor dining. We love Sette -- the food is always good; the owner, Alan, and his team are top notch. So welcoming and attentive. It's really a special place and we were delighted to be back...highly recommend.

About every two or three months my brother get together for lunch in Bernardsville, it's about halfway between our homes. Sette is so good we never consider going anywhere else. Alan, the owner, is so hands on, overseeing every facet of Sette. This is really nice to see these days in my humble opinion. Alan knows we don't bother with the menu anymore, he just brings out several courses. All are creative and delicious. The restaurant is small and well appointed. Dinners are every bit as good as lunch. This is clearly one of my top 3 favorite restaurants in NJ. Go.

This is a quiet upscale restaurant with attentive service .
The food was excellent and portions are in the larger size. We couldn’t finish everything so we had to take doggie bag home.
It was a treat the next day to relive the food with the leftovers.
I would definitely go back for any occasion. The price is on the high side for every day dining but so worth it.
