Ok, I've heard all the regular talk about Setto Mezzo, some true, some not true, BUT the facts are the food is EXCELLENT! I have never had a bad meal, not one...the regular menu is terrific, BUT the specials, and they change daily, are superb. Everything is fresh, fresh, FRESH, mostly seasonal and great portions, not too big, not too small! As for being a club, I don't see it? I have 5 kids, yes in NYC, and we all go there, as do many other families and everyone is treated the same...this place is typical NYC, it's busy, no nonsense...so if you want to be stroked and fawned over this isn't the place for you. And good food costs $$$, so get over it or you can go downtown with the hipsters and really be ignored!

This restaurant is really a private club. If you have a house charge you're in and treated like a valued member of the inner circle. If you're just a cash paying person (no credit cards accepted) the service is rushed and borderline rude. Even if you go there with some frequency they act like they don't know you. It is clear they can't wait for your table to open up in case someone more important shows up. Recently I made a reservation and when I arrived with out of town guests we were told they had our reservation but no table. No apology just a shoulder shrug. I guess someone with a house charge showed up. I won't go back. Too bad because the food is pretty good.

VERY clubby, very solid food snobby(particularly for newcomers), incredibly homogeneous crowd(hedge fund managers eating $60 pasta special) Service is fine, Ambiance nothing special.

The gnocchi is incredible. Like little pillows--so good! The only thing that is even more delicious is the chocolate ice cream. It has tiny flakes of dark chocolate in it. Incredible! The tables are packed together, its a little bright but I always see people I know and the food is consistently delicious.

We go to Sette Mezzo around once a month, and we haven't been let down yet. The food is fresh and authentic, the service is friendly and fast, and even the atmosphere is nice and intimate. A+
