Sette Osteria - 14th St

Italian
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.

Service was incredible - shoutout to Costa our server! Went for bottomless brunch with a group of friends and they were very accommodating to our last minute number of people change. Food was good but the real prize was the $15 bottomless drinks.

This place is amazing! The food was awesome. We were visiting DC for 4 days and ate here on the last night. It was by far our most enjoyable meal!
Highly recommend

A serviceable place on 14th street for brunch. My benedict was cooked with the eggs appropriately runny, and the side salad was simple and tart; a nice accompaniment. My companion's Norwegian benedict was similarly good. Our reservation was at 10 am on
a rainy Sunday, making us the first and for about 30 minutes the only customers in the place. Inexplicably -- it wasn't as if the pace was bustling -- the service was slightly surly, which detracted from the overall experience.

I absolutely love this place!
First time dining was a great experience. Our server “Milliana” (i’m sure I butchered her name I’m so sorry).
Provided us with nothing short of a five-star experience. Food was fresh and delicious. So many menu options I could barely choose. I plan on going back here at least once a month for Sunday lunch!

The staff Is warm and friendly. We went at an off time- around 3:30 pm on a Friday. It was quiet and only one other table occupied. We have been going there for several years but this was the first time during the pandemic. The grilled calamari was abundant but not as “grilled” as it should have been. The lasagna and the eggplant were delicious. The Caesar Salad delicious. The veal piccata was good. We love the feel of the place. Wish we could return more frequently!

Food was so so and they really need to sort out their outdoor heater situation. Small space heaters for every other table just doesn’t cut it-plus the fuse blew twice

The wait staff appeared fairly uninterested in us as a party despite the volume of customers being quite low. Also, they ran out of fuel in their outdoor heaters, and were out of Soup, so not great considering the cold. The food was good (I had a lasagna) and things seemed reasonably priced, but overall I was disappointed with my choice to eat here relative to other businesses that are trying to make it through the pandemic

Sat outside on a Saturday and had a great experience! We were sat immediately (with a reservation) and our food came out very quickly. We enjoyed the cacio e Pepe and the tiramisu. I lived in Rome for 5 months so I am a hard cacio e Pepe critic, but this place was amazing! I will definitely be coming back very soon. Highly recommend!

Costas was an amazing server that kept the mimosa’s flowing down to the last minute (since we came at 2:30 and brunch ended at 4). It got a little cold outside and they let us move inside, which was very social distanced so we felt comfortable. The food was great and I had an awesome time!
