Sette Osteria - 14th St

Italian
Sette is Italian for seven, the traditional "lucky" number. The restaurant design is comfortable with a traditional Italian tone, exposed bricks, and with a great " warm 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 pizza station viewable by guests.

The best decor in a restaurant is people. Windows give guests a view of the active passing scenes on busy 14th street. And, people walking by are able to view a very inviting and appealing restaurant. The decor is rustic and appealing but still carries a theme of sophisticated Italian culture and international buzz.

Felt super safe eating outside. Menus were on our phones and the staff was masked and gloved up. Thanks for a great evening.

It was litty, henny. Those mimosas made my week. The food has not been on point as before, but there is a lot of potential!

The service and value is pretty great. I got the breakfast flatbread and wasn’t very impressed, but the other menu items did look pretty good. I would go back!

Costas was an amazing server that kept the mimosa’s flowing down to the last minute (since we came at 2:30 and brunch ended at 4). It got a little cold outside and they let us move inside, which was very social distanced so we felt comfortable. The food was great and I had an awesome time!

We went for brunch on a Sunday and it was a great choice! Not very crowded even though it's on 14th, and they offer bottomless mimosas, Bellinis, or spiked apple cider for $15

Sette is hands down my favorite Italian restaurant in DC. Perfect date spot but also great for group dinners and brunch!

I’m Italian-American from the Northeast and grew up in a big Italian family. This restaurant reminds me of our big family dinners because the quality of the food is so old school authentic Italian. I’m dying to know where they get their mozzarella because it honestly looks and tastes like it’s made in-house. Every pasta I’ve had here from gnocchi to tagliatelle has been cooked perfectly. Their sauces are all homemade and it’s easy to tell. Their meat and fish dishes are also incredible!! The wine selection is large enough to satisfy everyone in your group.

Seriously can’t stress enough how well the food is made here. The chef clearly has a passion for his food and it’s evident!

Wait staff was a bit rude/curt. Had to keep asking for stuff and didn’t check on us often or make us feel very welcome. I reserved outside but they said there was a 25 min wait for outside so we sat inside where it was quite hot

Only came for a drink, so I can’t speak to the food, but a great experience overall! The red sangria is amazing, as is the aperol spritz!
Service was great, and the team there did an incredible job of making everyone feel welcome and safe at the same time. They brought a sense of normalcy, which was greatly appreciated.

Food was pretty mediocre. Most of tastes like it wasn’t freshly prepared and was reheated. Both of us had upset stomachs when we got home.

This is the first restaurant we have ate at since moving to DC in March. We started with a few signature cocktails- mango martini and bellini- with bread to start then the chicken parm for him and chicken flatbread for me. We were both surprised at the portions we were served! Neither of us could finish our plates and will have tasty leftovers. They did a great job with the outdoor seating during phase 1 reopening during the vivid outbreak. Our table was ready 15 minutes before our reservation and we got seated right away. The virtual menu that we pulled up on our phones via QR code was easy to work convenient too. We look forward to trying the brunch service next time.

It was nice to be back at a restaurant. It looked like Sette Osteria took the social distancing and safety guidelines issued by the D.C. local government seriously. There was some trepidation on everyone's part, as you might expect, but the food was good and the service very good, especially when it came to explaining to us how to use a digital menu instead of a hard copy. I left a pretty large tip for our server. After all these service workers have been through these last few months, they deserve it.
