One of the best kept secrets in NJ. This wonderful BYOB serves great food in a unique small setting that seats less than 30. The owner is the son of DaPhilipos in Somerville. Ideal for date night or 2 couples.

Awesome menu, quaint, great service and didn’t feel rushed. Only suggestion is to keep it warmer during winter months.

With a few tables you will have to make sure to reserve yours in advance. I can't say enough about Sette, just go. And tell Alan, who greets you that Daniel Mancini sent you.
