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.
Complimentary garage parking after 7pm.

Except for the fact that they ran out of gas tanks and it was pretty cold outside, everything was perfect. Very friendly staff and amazing food. Will definitely go back
Enjoyed lunch in the tent with a couple heaters. Food and service was great!
An appreciated way to eat out, with very friendly service and good food.
Last couple of times at Sette have been mediocre. Lentil soup was served lukewarm
and sour. Bread plate included no crusted bread.
Has been our 'go to' place for many years. Food is always good and generous portions.
Food was funky spoiled I sent it back. Bottomless mimosas were awful I had either food or alcohol poisoning that night
All of the food was very poor in taste and preparation
A neighborhood favorite made even more special in this time of Covid-19 by its large heated outdoor seating.
The food is consistently good with favorites such as pasta alla bolognese, chicken milanese and any of the pizzas worth making a trip here specially for. Outdoor seating is ample, essential and a treat these days.
We were able to dine outdoors with tables separated from others. I wasn't even aware off the other people seated outdoors with us. It was the good old Sette, with social distancing.
Neighborhood favorite. Great food and service at a reasonable price.
The veal scallopine was thick, overcooked and o accompanied by a very mediocre sauce.
The spaghetti bolognese was very bland
The grilled calamari was thick, over cooked and tough
The only redeeming course was a mushroom flatbread.
Very happy to have met family at Sette Osteria on Connecticut Ave for appetizers and cocktails. Food and wine were excellent, as was our server.
Great happy hour! The food is great and there's always plenty. The price point is great.
I hope they will be able to provided heated outdoor seating during the cold weather--this is a really nice place.
Birthday meal and happy hour was the best! Two rounds of gnocchi and pumpkin ravioli, the prosciutto pizza, the sausage, everything was AMAZING!
Seated at 655pm for 7pm resy. Server first approached at 715pm and we ordered cheese plate and Montepulciano. Wine was significantly warmer than room temp but gradually cooled in outdoor setting. Both were tasty. Entrees (medium rare filet mignons) arrived before soup / salad. Of course, when we finished soup/salad, we received same steaks that sat beneath heat lamp and were a solid medium well by time of first bite. Server apologetically offered comp desserts which I readily accepted in the hopes of saving the “just meh” experience.
The food was very good. The atmosphere is a little chaotic, but fun and the wait staff all help each other out. They are making the best of the outdoor dining situation with table spacing and heaters. Good wine selection.
Food was great, service so friendly, and the drink prices are such a great deal! It just took us awhile to get our check and often times things like our food and plates/ silverware was almost sent to wrong table. Outside can be alittle loud because on Connecticut but honestly such a wonderful time!!
Mad average. Good wine list but food is mediocre. Service fantastic do not sleep on these days waiters.
Restaurant did a good job with safety protocols. Liked that the menu was on an app.
They didn’t even acknowledge us we were sitting at the table for more than 20 minutes... very disappointed... it was a really awful feeling
Service excellent. Very nice outdoor seating. Delicious Chicken Milanese with arugula.
Thank you for the great meal and service Emilija - The outdoor patio is great!
Always a solid choice!
Our only problem was that it got very cold. They will need to get heaters and maybe curtains if they want to stay open once it's cooler outside. (We didn't want to eat inside.) I think the city might provide heaters for restaurants so they can stay busy.
We wanted to stop for italian food on our trip to Washington DC and came across to Settle Osteria.
From the first step in we were immersed in a warm wood burning smell of a pizza stove. Service was fast and very friendly. Food was like we are back in Rome. Pasta, pizza, salad... Every dish was so delicious. I regret I did not make any pictures...
Sette makes me feel safe and welcome during the pandemic. Thank you!
Great bottomless mimosa brunch.
We return to Sette Osteria every time we visit Washington, at least twice annually. The food is always good, and the Dupont Circle location is perfect. The outdoor dining area is just right.
Only problem this time was that our server brought one wrong entree. It was quickly fixed.
We'll be back next visit.
Food was not authentic, not fresh, half of it wasn’t even good, bad service, lots of excuses
A great place for outdoor eating, while the weather lasts.
I dine at Sette Osteria a few times a year and love it! I definitely recommend it.
Good food. Decent outdoor space. Good service. Calamari Fritti was nice. Veal piccata really good.
We went for brunch and it was amazing! Outside and all tables safely distant!
Bottomless mimosas are $15 which is a great deal in DC and the waiter was very timely and definitely got full value.
The food was also great which is shocking for brunch places with good deals usually.
My friend and I split the half portion of gnocchi (big size still) and the breakfast flatbread with sausage, mushroom and artichoke.
Both were great and good size!
Really enjoyed it a lot!
They do a great brunch! Really fun and definitely felt safe with covid rules and all.
Outdoor seating, pretty reasonable COVID precautions. Even though the menu is pared down for COVID, pizzas and flat breads were pretty good. Lunch service was quick and attentive.
Went for Labor Day brunch and the food was honestly very mediocre. They burnt the crab cakes and I ordered a brunch burger which came with absolutely nothing other than the meat and egg. It was not the best food in my opinion.
Great food. Great outdoor seating. Quiet but at the same time very close to busy area.
Hector is the best server I've ever had. The whole staff communicates and works together as an amazing cohesive unit. Best brunch place in DC
Food is dependable, always very good. Outdoor seating was well spaced. The only negative was our server, who was distracted, forgetting the drink one of us ordered, serving spoons, not checking in tosee if we needed anything. It was still a good evening but more attentive service would have made it better.
