THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Setacci Restaurant Review

: Set on the corner of Hudson and Leroy Streets in the West Village, this inviting Italian eatery is bathed in pistachio and chocolate hues. The minimalist interior and two-seater tables that line the periphery of the room make for a somewhat cozy atmosphere. The menu, however, is loaded with Italian goodness. Setacci, which means “sift,” suggests that chef Joey D’Angelo (late of Union Square Café and Esca) has sifted through the boot-shaped country for the best of the best. And, if the raw oysters, which are fresh enough to convince your taste buds that you’re steps from the sea, or the crispy grilled octopus, or the juicy brick-roasted chicken or tender roasted monkfish are any indication, the name is a perfect fit.
