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.

We're new to the neighborhood and have eaten at Sette twice now. Both times the food and service were very good. We particularly enjoyed the calamari, which is grilled, not fried, and has a wonderful smokey flavor. My favorite main course was the Cavatelli; my wife loved the Gnocchi. The wine list isn't extensive, but it's a fine selection and... More

We come here over and over again when we travel for pleasure or business. It's a must for us to unwind, sit outside, and relax as we watch locals walking by. I keep coming back for their Arugula & Prosciutto pizza - oh my! Last visit we were a business group and couldn't decide if we wanted lunch or breakfast... More

The food is fine, but not as good as it could be. But sitting on the patio on a warm night is very pleasant. Service is attentive and friendly.

On a Saturday night we accidentally stopped here instead of th e"planned" restaurant. They made an effort to find us a table quickly, outdoors per our request no less. We found the service solid, the food selection well varied and well prepared to our liking, timing good, and overall experience enjoyable.

We were there on a crowded Saturday night. We were promptly seated at the time of our reservation. Our drink order was taken in a timely fashion. The problem began with our dinners. Three of the five meals were delivered in an appropiate amount of time. The fourth dinner which was the same as one of the first three showed... More

By 6:30, most tables were full and the bar area was standing room only. Looked like a number of neighborhood families were there which is always a good sign. Was a bit loud so if noise is a concern you might try outdoor seating - weather permitting. We had the penne arrabbiata, which was a reasonable portion with the right... More

The first time, we both had great pasta dishes with salads. We liked it so much, we went back 2 nights later and had a cheese platter and a pizza. Both times we had very attentive staff and really good food. If you're near the Dupont Circle area, check them out.
