About Sette Osteria - 14th St

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.

We didn’t get seated until 45 minutes after our reservation. Then half way through the meal, we were asked to switch tables. They did bring us dessert on the house but I would have preferred quick seating, especially when we had to get home to a babysitter.

Sette Osteria was excellent! They were able to accommodate a large group and our group was very happy with the experience. The food - especially the handmade pastas - were superb. One small issue was the air temperature in the restaurant was too hot.. but that might have been because we had a big group packed in on a crowded Saturday night.

This is my go-to brunch spot when I have family visiting. The brunch menu has really fair pricing, there are a ton of options, and the entrees are very filling. I went to Sette Osteria for dinner for the first time when family came to visit. It was a little pricier than the brunch menu, but on the less expensive side of the average price on 14th street. It got pretty noisy, but there was a large group seated behind us. Still one of my go-to spots.

Sette Osteria was able to accommodate 12 of us on fairly short notice. The food came out in a timely manner event though there were so many of us and everyone enjoyed their meal. They also gave us a complimentary tiramisu for our friend's birthday which was a nice touch. Prices here are very reasonable as well, especially for D.C.

Made a reservation for this place because it had the best bottomless mimosa/bellini deal in the area, and I wanted to have a nice brunch with friends visiting from out of town. Service was very quick and got right down to the matter and that is something I was a fan of right away. One other friend and I ordered bottomless bellinis and the drinks were definitely free-flowing (we both got so hungover afterwards).

My friends ordered a pasta dish and flatbread and I ordered the brunch tart. We all tried a little bit of each other's dishes and I have to say I had entree envy because I definitely enjoyed the pasta and flatbread more than my brunch tart.

Still, it was a very enjoyable experience overall and we left very happy and drunk. I would love to come back and try some of their pasta dishes!

When a waiter says “anything is possible”, you know it is going to be a great experience...and it was. Three of us had the bolognese, two split the beet salad and branzino special, and one had the risotto special. We shared a cheesecake and creme brûlée. We all enjoyed our meals, desserts, wine, and cappuccinos. Our service was exceptional. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the servers name, but on our receipt it shows Darko M. He made it a fun evening. We will definitely be back!

The staff there is not customer friendly and socially regimented. When I asked if it was Happy Hour, the bartender responded yes, then proceeded to give me something that wasn't on Happy Hour prices - and had no apologies.
The management needs to review their staffing procedures and select staff that is customer friendly.
I live only 1 block away and have been there many times, but I will not go again.

The service was very accommodating to our special needs (for a quiet place because of hearing loss) and were very attentive throughout the meal without being intrusive. The food is good but not great. But I'd go back again when I'm in the neighborhood because the servers were so nice.
