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.

Wonderful restaurant, beautiful interior and the pasta was delicious. Great selection of wine pairings and cocktails. Fun for a girls night out or a special occasion!

There was no air condition inside. Only one waitress to work the patio and the few people that wanted to deal with the heat inside the restaurant. If you are unable to staff your restaurant maybe you should consider just having takeout. It’s not fair to the staff or the patrons.

The food and wine were perfect! The only issue was that we specifically requested outdoor seating in our reservation, but were seated indoors - it was by an open window, but I wish that they were able to accommodate the initial request.

Went here for dinner on Labor Day. The food was great, but the restaurant had our waitress waiting on all(!) 7+ outside tables. I can understand that restaurants are generally understaffed at this time, especially during a holiday weekend. I’ve had brunch here before and the service was great - so I’m chalking this up to a one time anomaly.

We sat and waited for over 20 minutes with no one to acknowledge or take an order. When the server came towards our table and I attempted to speak … she looked and walked right by us to take care of a table sat 10-15 minutes after us . We left and went to another restaurant and had a great experience.

The food was bland and yet somehow incredibly oily. There was no air conditioning inside so we had to sit outside in the humid, summer DC heat. Way overpriced for what it was

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.

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
