Yummy Mini Calzones!

My husband and I were seated right away. Food was very good, we both ordered a Cesar salad which was normal average and we also both ordered Mini Calzones which were very good! Some of the portions i noticed were very small for the price.

We wandered into Sette Osteria on a pleasant evening, mostly for the outdoor seating and ended up with a terrific meal. The beat salad was a perfect starter and the pizza was top notch. I will definitely return.

DuPont Circle area is great place to just walk around and wanted to make this our last stop before heading home. Did some shopping as well as menu shopping and chose here. The pitch at many restaurants near by is bottomless Mimosas and Bellini's for a max number of hours. So, why not! They have many choices for brunch to... More

Highly recommend Sette Osteria near Dupont Circle for a really great and reasonably priced Italian meal. My sister had the lasagna which she proclaimed the best she ever ate (and she is from the San Francisco area where good Italian restaurants are common...and has an Italian son-in-law who makes a pretty great lasagna himself!). I had a fantastic chicken parmesan,... More

We stopped in at Sette Osteria on the way back to our hotel in Du Pont circle late one afternoon - we had our choice of tables, either inside or out. Outside can be a bit noisy and sunny, although at night it is probably lovely. The waiter on the door in charge of seating wasn't the friendliest person around... More

We have been twice because they offer a complete menú with fair prices. Open when other are closed. Outside is very nice in summer. Service is excellent. To be recommended. Good quality.

After walking out of another restaurant due to poor customer service, Sette was a welcomed treat! The staff and service were excellent--warm, efficient, and professional. The food was spot-on, and the setting was great for people watching. We will visit again next time we're in town.

My sister and I ate here because the weather was beautiful and we could eat outside. The restaurant was crowded, our waiter was enthusiastic - the food average. We had a good bottle of white wine recommended by the waiter. Pasta was mediocre but bread was delicious.

Many tourists are taken aback by restaurant prices in Washington. Some are also a bit scared by fanciness in ingredients. But Sette is just good Italian food that is relatable to tourists and locals at reasonable prices. I would recommend the pizzas, but lots of choices. Just had a wonderful brunch with a dozen family and friends, including young children,... More
