We dined there around 6 times over a 9 day period and to be honest this was the best food and service that we received during our north American trip .

We ate on a Wed evening about 5 pm. My wife's sister is 83 and lives about 10 blocks away in subsidized housing. She chose the restaurant and I picked up the tab. $105 for three of us plus the tip. Good for NYC. I am 78. We are from Michigan and are at the rv park in Croton-on-Hudson. I... More

Settepani was a favorite spot for friends and I for many years. Today's service was unbelievably poor. We ordered three different times and no one seemed to be able to understand our order. We departed in frustration and unfed. Very discouraging. Ah sigh...

The four of us greatly enjoyed our meals sitting outdoors at the Settepani on a very hot Harlem summer night. The service was very prompt and friendly and the owner even came by for a quick chat as we finished eating. We had pasta dishes - gnocchi and linguini with clams - that were both extremely tasty. We highly recommend... More

Nice venue with outdoor seating and quieter seating with tablecloths inside so you get to pick. Lots of choices of appetizers and mains which are very good and a cut above the norm for flavours. Fairly quick service and food delivery. Good range of beers on tap. Wines as well. Recommended.

Very enjoyable meal in Harlem, all 4 meals were at a high standard and came out quickly. Really impressed with the service from all the waiters definitely the friendliest we found in New York. The owner is also very welcoming and likes to have a chat. Overall very nice meals and a good Atmosphere made it an enjoyable night.

We had lunch on a Sunday afternoon at Settepani and I have to say that the recommendations from our waiter were spot on. One of us had a lovely cocktail with out starters which was really nice. As main course we both had the recommended seafood pasta which was creatively presented and we did not regret it. We do recommend... More

It was more than an office birthday party. Our colleague holds his annual birthday event here and now I know why. The ambiance is graciously casual with a flair. Elegant dining at its best.

I had the homemade pumpkin ravioli, my date had the steak, and we shared a bottle of Asti (it was New Years Eve). Everything was delicious. The space was casual and upscale at the same time--so comfortable and classy. We heard people speaking Italian all around us and reminisced about our trip to Italy. Overall, excellent experience.
