Nice spot with outdoor tables. The food was pleasant enough but not outstanding. Service OK but not great. Would be happy to go again but not rushing!

I enjoyed my meal here, but my husband thought his dish was terrible. They do have gluten free options, which is good to know. I noticed the service got slower as the place got busier, and I sometimes had to flag down the waitress. My daughter had the citrus creme brulee and it was amazing. The fact that we went... More

After a busy day in the city what could be better than a leisurely dinner curbside just off DuPont Circle for an early evening of people watching. The server (Nikola) was excellent as he adjusted his pace to ours. He suggested and sampled a delightful bottle of wine to accompany some of the best gazpacho of the season before turning... More

Flavor of the pizzas were good but the crust was soggy. The pumpkin ravioli with sage butter was great.

Lovely outdoor patio. Large menu with typical Italian fare. The service was a bit slow considering how early we were there, but the experience was very good overall.

We were visiting Hillwood and asked there for a recommendation for dinner in Dupont Circle. Sette Osteria was mentioned. We arrived around 6pm on Saturday and we were immediately seated on the patio. Water and bread soon appeared. In addition to the large menu, there were many specials to choose from. I ordered a special-steak with mushroom sauce, truffled Parmesan... More

Enjoyed Sette for the second time while in DC recently. Last time was dinner in March, this time lunch in July. Perfect summer day and perfect salads and pizzas to go with it. Delicious Pinot Grigio and our party of 6 enjoyed every minute. Terrific service and we even topped it off with a couple of delicious desserts to share.

We quite often hop the metro up to DuPont Circle just to have lunch at Sette Osteria. They have wonderful outside seating with a view of the hustle and bustle of Connecticut Ave and a couple of side streets. Great menu, very good food, we especially like their selection of salads and the grilled calamari. The bloody Mary's are also... More

Sette Osteria was one of the restaurants recommended by Embassy Circle and it was superb. It was a short stroll down our tree lined street and we ate there three times to try everything we wanted! The Sette drink was sooo refreshing and the pastas were excellent.
