Sette Osteria – Washington, DC

Sette is a simple, reasonably priced local restaurant in Dupont Circle The restaurant tends to get crowded in the evening and the food is what the PizzaSnobo likes to call “DC Good,” so don’t go expecting Italian nirvana. There is a large outdoor area that is nice and is relatively quiet at any time other than the main dinner rush.

The pies ($13 for 10 inches though looked more like 12 inches) are made with fresh ingredients. The crust is light and sweet with just a little bit of crunch. As for the cheese, it covers most of the pie in a paper thin layer. The sauce tastes like fresh tomatoes and may be the best part of the pizza. Overall, the margherita is quite minimalist and not too heavy, so there is no need to feel guilty eating an entire pie on your own. The basil placed on top can overpower the rest of the pie, but it’s easy to remove if you’re not in the mood for it.

Give Sette a try during happy hour when the margherita pie costs only $6. You might find you like Sette’s pizza just as much as more specialized joints like 2 Amys.
