Sette is Italian for seven, the traditional "lucky" number. The restaurant design is comfortable with a traditional Italian tone, and with a great "feel and flow." Sette Osteria is a destination place for people as well as a place for people walking in the area to come in and enjoy.

Decor: Sette Osteria has an open kitchen and an action station viewable by guests. Pizzas are cooked in a wood-burning pizza oven.

The best decor in a restaurant is people. Windows give guests a view of the active passing scenes on busy Connecticut Avenue and R Streets. And, people walking by are able to view a very inviting and appealing restaurant. The decor is soft and appealing but still carries a theme of sophisticated Italian culture and international buzz. Guests can view the young people going in and out of the chic clothing stores G-star and Emporium 2050.

This was a great place for bottomless mimosas. The meals were very good and so were the mimosas!

I am always amazed at the amazing value at Sette Osteria. It's the most reasonably priced brunch spot in Dupont Circle! The service is reliable and efficient. The food is very good -- I've been here both for weekday lunch and weekend brunch, and both were excellent. I'm hesitant to recommend it too much, only because it's such a hidden gem and love that I can always get a table there! I will continue to come to Sette for lunches and brunches with friends.

Meh. Kind of perfunctory in atmosphere, menu, food. Nothing special except it’s not stupid expensive for that location.

It was painfully loud making conversation at our table nearly impossible. The salad was soggy with dressing and appeared to have been made awhile ago...not fresh, wilted. The olive oil on the table for dipping was delicious but the bread was super doughy, as was the pizza -not crispy ..disappointing. The penne margarita was ok-pretty average. Overall we weren’t impressed.

Sette Osteria is a chain of yummy, basic Italian food. We had not been before but were pleasantly surprised. Good menu and wine list, good service, and comforting Italian food. Very vibrant location in Dupont Circle.

Great location; near hotel. Good food and service.

Food was good but the restaurant has closely packed tables and it is hard to carry on a conversation. In addition, after I had selected a wine, the waiter brought an additional lst and tried to push wines that were twice as expensive and disproportionately high compared to the food prices.

This is a go-to place that doesn’t disappoint. We shared the fried calamari and zucchini, done perfectly, tender and tasty. We each had a pasta, done al dente and sauced in the Italian way. The service was attentive. All in all, a wonderful Sunday evening.
