About Sette Osteria
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.

Sette Osteria Ratings and Reviews
I've been to this restaurant on three separate occasions and each time was a great experience. The fisrst and last times I was there the location of our seats left something to be desired but I enjoyed my company so it was not bad. Most seats in the place are fine there are just a few two person tables that are stuffed in odd places that either leave you stuck between a wall and passing waiters that occasionally walk into your arms as your eating. That is my only complaint. in the summertime the outdoor seating is a joy so do try it out if you get the chance. Food is delicious and all the pasta is hand made but please go in knowing that this restaurant is much more authentic than other Italian places (right down to mostly Italian servers) so you will not be receiving ungodly Americanized-olive gardenized monstrosities as dishes here. No endless bread sticks here.
Hosts were matter of fact, not welcoming. We were told to wait at the bar even though we arrived on time for a reservation. We waited thirty minutes. The hosts never apologized or gave us a wait estimate. We debated leaving at twenty minutes. At thirty minutes I went up and inquired as to the wait time. More rudeness. No apologies again. The food was fine but obviously I have no desire to go back.
This is a go-to for our group of friends. Delicious food (especially the homemade pasta dishes), good portions, amazing bread, and nice selection of cocktails and wines. The service is always on spot: warm, professional, accommodating. We ate outside this time which was lovely. They even give you blankets on each chair to ward off the chills. We'll definitely keep coming back!
Our favorite Sette in the area. We always go when the weather is nice and we always ask to be seated outside. Completely different atmosphere from the inside. Service & food are always good. We love the carpaccio , fried calamri, pizzas and the best linguine al vongole!
Sette is our neighborhood go-to place when we want to meet folks staying in Dupont Circle. You can just do drinks and small stuff or share pizza, etc. Outdoor seating is a big draw during nice weather. Well located for people without a car and close to Metro.
Went here after a play at the Keegan Theatre. Very good Italian food. We tried some chicken and fish dishes that were excellent. next time we will try their pasta dishes. Service staff were very attentive. Sidewalk seating was very quaint. We had this Italian Cheesecake dessert that was just crazy good. We should have started with that!!!!
Had a family get together where it was the first time to Sette Osteria for all of us. We had heard nice things about the restaurant and as it was close to where my son lived, we decided to give it a try. Right at the start, there was excellent validated parking right underneath the restaurant, a real plus in the DuPont Circle area. We were there early, so enjoyed an oyster appetizer and a Caprese Salad with excellent tomatoes and fresh mozzarella along with a very nice Italian red. After the party arrived, we ordered larger bites and dinner. The homemade pasta was especially good, and the veal chop was huge and excellently prepared. Each meal was considered one of the best at the table. We were too full for much desert, but did try the apple tart (excellent) and the gelati - which we had to finish. All in all, an excellent meal and we will certainly be back.
