Settepani may not serve the “seven breads” that its name recalls, but it does offer up a widely varied menu of Italian flatbreads, salads, pastas and other entrees. Start out with small bites like the spicy jumbo shrimps ($12), assorted bruschetta ($8) or flatbread with prosciutto and arugula ($14) before moving on to larger dishes. Why not follow the Italian tradition and order both a primi and secondi course? The spaghetti di mare with assorted seafood ($20) might lead to the grilled branzino ($27), and the bucatini with sardines, pine nuts, fennel and black currant ($18) would go nicely with the osso bucco with saffron risotto ($32). It’s not just for dinner, either—stop in before 4pm to order off the egg-laden brunch menu. Go for the classics, like quiche with ham and gruyere ($12) or eggs benedict ($14), or order up a freshly made flatbread for breakfast. When in Rome, right?
Settepani Bakery also offers baked goods for all religious and secular holidays.
