One of the best places for outdoor eating is the Sette Osteria at Connecticut and R st NW dc. They have one of the largest outdoor spaces and some of the best service in the city. My favorite here is the margherita pizza, big enough to share. You can sit here and watch the city go by on a good... More

We were seated quickly, our server was very attentive, our drinks were fantastic, and the pizza suggestion from the host was superb. I has a wonderful experience here and will certainly be... More

This place was really nice. I went with a group of 12 for brunch, none of whom had ever been before and we all had a lovely experience. Aside from a hair in my omelet, which they quickly made again, I enjoyed every bit of it. The food was delicious, ambiance was lively and wait staff were very attentive. I... More

The two hour Happy period only applies at the bar and doesn't cover all drinks just beer and wine which may not be a 'great deal' to all those who like a tipple. We were a bit miffed that we couldn't have our drinks at the bar taken at our table but otherwise no complaints. I ordered a 4 seasons... More

Visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Washington DC. Service was attentive without being overbearing and the food was excellent. We had a variety of pasta and pizza dishes during our visits (family of four) and there were no disappointments. The spaghetti and meatballs was a particular favourite and our 10 year old swears by the Fettuccini Alfredo!! Lovely... More

This is a very nice place to sit down for casual dining on a big outdoor seating area. The menu has lots of pizza, pasta, salads and other things. My daugherts had pizza and lasagne, I had carpaccio starter and pasta carbonara, and my wife had soup and sallad. The service was fast and friendly. All the meals were well... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant during lunch one day. We sat outside, the patio is great. The lunch specials and size plates are perfect for a midday meal. The service was attentive but not overbearing. Would visit again. Close to metro.

The new 14th Street location is really nice. We enjoyed our dinner and the ambiance. The wine was warm, but they brought an ice bucket for us. The mini calzones were really good.
