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.

We loved Sette Osteria, with a great special and yummy treats for afterwards. Good service, but lucky for us we were in a far table in the corner. The noise level in the main part of the restaurant was over the top. Other than that, we'll be back for sure. Excellent food.

Fabulous food, good selection of wines. Very lively, while still being able to easily have a conversation.
We were significantly delayed for our reservation and the staff were exceedingly accommodating. I plan on returning often, and highly recommend you do as well!!

They were very nice, the drinks were strong, and the food was good! Upset that we missed brunch, but rules are rules.

Sette is a favorite with one of my friends, so when she decided to celebrate her birthday there, we were thrilled to return to this restaurant. The food has always been very good, ranging from the delicious bruschetta to the excellent pumpkin ravioli. It tastes homemade and fresh, and should remain on the menu!
Our server was excellent - very attentive, and also brought out a candle on the panna cotta dessert as requested.

Always like coming by here when we are in the neighborhood. Our server was extremely attentive. Our food arrived promptly. There are several daily specials as well as a nice pasta, pizza, and entree selection. The wine list is extensive with several affordable by the glass or by the carafe options. We will be back!

Third year in a row that several of us have gone to the restaurant for New Year's lunch. Food is always good, as is the service. Price point is right on.

We've been to Sette Osteria before and we weren't disappointed on New Year's Eve, despite the enormous crowds (to be expected on New Year's Eve). Nevertheless, food was quite good and service was excellent. Truly a neighborhood gem.
