Neighborhood Eats: Sette Osteria

Though the place shares an owner with Cafe Milano and Sette Bello, the crowd at this Dupont Circle pizzeria is mainly young and from the neighborhood. They come for thin-crusted wood-oven pies (the Margherita is best), salumi, and pastas such as the robust cavatelli with sausage and broccoli rabe. In summer, the sidewalk cafe is a prime spot for people watching.
