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 Cove
Bottomless Weekend brunch $15 (2 hour) and daily Happy Hour.

It was my birthday and we had a fun time. The 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAKE" was on the house
The food was delicious, especially the burrata starter. There was little to no attention paid to us during our service experience, and we were not met at the hostess stand... A server waved us down and asked how many. I think they might have been understaffed. The indoor ambience left a lot to be desired and the patio was nice, but quiet.
it was a really busy day but those two waitresses were getting the job done!! I wish I had gotten their names. They did a great job!
The food was very good and despite being busy, the service was excellent!
I like your restaurant and come often but the cappellini was overcooked and
had minimum taste. Service is always good and you are convenient for me and
my friend to meet there but this is the firs time that I have shared with you my
general feeling about the food. Sam Kilpatrick
Great food! We enjoyed the homemade pasta which was cooked perfectly.
I went for brunch! The food was great and they were very attentive with refilling glasses for bottomless brunch!
So accommodating and lovely! Food was delicious and everything was terrific!
Thank you for being where you are. A very good place to come to.
They are out of many items on the menu. Also they have a wine list and they were out of 90% of the wines listed. All the people with us were not surprised about that as if they had expected such performance. They need to pay close attention since they have a great location
Everything was great but the pizza oven was down so I couldn’t order pizza.
Efficient service. Food is delicious. Beautiful patio with lots of passersby.
What a tragedy to witness this slow death of a once outstanding restaurant. There was no maitre’d or greeter and no operating ovens on the day we ate there. They should have just shut down. So unnecessary. That said the salad and pasta I had were delicious and the waiter somewhat professional. I just don’t get what happened here.
The staff was overwhelmed. I don’t think there was even a hostess working. Twenty minutes after ordering we were told they were out of one of the entrees we ordered. Once the food arrived it though was pretty good.
Everything was good except we asked to sit indoors but the doors were left open and there were mosquitoes biting us all throughout dinner. The service was excellent!
Food was delish!! Prices were super reasonable and the portions were big. Love their patio too - will definitely be back for brunch!
I’m a bit biased because we’ve been coming here for years; everytime we come to D we have dinner here and it’s consistently good!
I love Sette! It took a long time to get our drinks and food, but everything else was good besides that.
I’ve been going to Sette for 16 years. This was the worst experience I’ve ever had there. My pasta was mediocre, my wife’s chicken was over cooked. The server forgot to put in our appetizer and disappeared after delivering the lackluster entrees. We had to ask the woman refilling our water for a second drink and for the check. They were not particularly busy.
Sette Osteria was just what we were looking for Excellent homemade pasta, delicious desserts, and attentive service. The fresh mozzarella alla caprese was a standout. I enthusiastically recommend.
Ordered a pasta with chicken and they forgot the chicken, but the chicken that eventually came out was so delicious I didn’t care that they initially forgot it. My mouth is still watering for more.
We went for a large family gathering. The food was really great, and although they seemed a little short staffed, our server was wonderful - very friendly and accommodating.
Family get together. Lots of different dietary restrictions and preferences. All were able to get a good and enjoyable meal.
Good food and good service,
Excellent food & lovely ambiance inside & out.
The food here is good, but overpriced. The service is mediocre and not very attentive. The indoor ambiance isn okay, but could use some updating.
Food was delicious, service excellent—perfect place for a going back to school lunch with my niece!!
I went to there many times. Most times I enjoy but i dont on the last time. Because the pasta I ordered a little bit over cook and tasted not good. No smell of tomato and garlic.
Also, I’ve got 3 mosquito bites even in the restaurant. I saw it but couldn’t hit it.
This time was a little bit disappointing.
Eating outdoors at Sette is very nice. We had a group of 6, each eating something different. We could hear each other talk, the food was better than we expected, and the service was very nice. I think it is an ideal place to have dinner or lunch- you won't break the bank doing it, food is reasonable priced for the quality.
Excellent food. Great staff.
Enjoyed lunch outside. Service was great, and we didn’t wait long for our orders.
Overall, dinner was fine, but the Scialatelli sauce was orange, did not have much eggplant, and had very mediocre flavor. The bruschetta topping was good although its white bread base was soft, standard, and boring. Service was good. The last time I visited, several years ago, the food was better.
Muy buenas pizzas, masa fina, hechas a la leña y sabrosas.
Servicio excelente. Sin duda, repetiremos.
Homemade pasta and bread. The best lamb shank I've ever had. I never regret coming here. I crave the white sangria. 10/10!!!
Visiting. My waiter was friendly and efficient.
I reviewed two menus. I wasn't certain the web menu was updated, so I scanned the qr code. That menu said a lot of entrees were not available. I asked the waiter for a pasta with seafood and he brought over a laminated menu which had entrees that weren't on the other two. I'm so glad I did because I spotted a linguini with shrimp and calamari I didn't see on the other menus...
Great neighborhood spot, with outdoor seating. Friendly wait staff and good food at a good price!
We loooved it
Good brunch. I would definitely recommend. I would go back
Pleasant surprise, friendly service, good food and drinks.
