This tiny family owned restaurant was excellent. A husband and wife team took great care of me. The ravioli was made while I waited. Such light pockets of fresh pasta surrounding even lighter ricotta. Topped with porcini mushrooms. Pure heaven. The house red wine was very nice. I found it in a shop three doors down and bought several bottles.... More

My husband and I ate at Il Setaccio this past fall. It was the Italian dining experience that people dream of: a tiny restaurant, the husband in the front room, the wife in the kitchen - which was separated from the dining room by a curtain. The menu was limited and that, for us, was great because we knew that... More

Very nice comfort food. The ravioli was the best and the grilled sausage was just the right compliment to the meal. It feels like eating at your Grandmother's house!

The ravioli was homemade and amazing, filled with ricotta cheese and topped with delicious porcini mushrooms. The polenta was creamy and delicious... More

The husband came out and told us what menu items were available that evening, freshly prepared by his wife. I believe we ordered them all and thoroughly enjoyed this outstanding example of fresh, homemade Italian cuisine. The price was very reasonable and the overall experience was excellent.

Very small place where the owner and his wife do it all. He recited to us what his wife was making for that night. The wine comes in a pitcher and was pleasant if not complex. The mushrooms were fresh and fabulous on pasta. Polenta was also great. Informal atmosphere with good food.

Thank Sue K
