Dinner at Sette Osteria Italian Restaurant in Wynwood – The SoFla Sage

Bringing more than 15 years of experience from Washington D.C. to South Florida, Sette Osteria, an authentic Italian restaurant and bar, is now open bringing an elevated, authentic Italian experience to the Wynwood Art District.

The casual Italian eatery utilizes the freshest ingredients in signature house made pastas, authentic pizzas and traditional entrées to complement an endless selection of wines. Sette Osteria offers an indoor dining space, an intimate bar, and some outdoor seating. The open kitchen, warm green hues, high ceilings and use of wooden planters create an inviting, neighborhood restaurant for locals to enjoy.

Designed by Miami-based Saladino Design Group, Sette Osteria creates a balanced atmosphere with warm earthy tones and casually sophisticated decor. Upon entering guests will find lush greenery floating over 80 wooden indoor seats.

I brought my #SageSister (is that a thing now? lol) Laura, an aspiring makeup artist, along for dinner.

grilled calamari wynwood

Calamarata – grilled calamari, mixed greens, tomatoes, olives, capers

For me, thinly sliced and grilled calamari was a unique take on the dish as compared to the typical fried version.

But, if you google the term, you’ll find that “Calamarata is a kind of thick ring pasta, often dyed with black squid ink so that they resemble sliced calamari. It originates from Naples in the South of Italy.” Im pretty sure this was actual calamari, though.

 

Suppli al Forno – arancini stuffed with mozzarella, potato croquette

The Suppli al Forno comes with two varieties. The rice and mozzarella one was really good and I liked the potato one too – that one surprisingly had some blue cheese in it.

 

kale ravioli

Ravioli del Giorno

The ravioli of the day had sage in it, so you know I just had to order it (I was planning on trying the ravioli anyway). 😉

It was a delicate ravioli, not bad, but I felt something was missing from the dish overall.

Bresaola Pizza – San Marzano tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, arugula, beef bresaola carpaccio, Parmigiano Reggian

I was happy to see some cured beef as an option for a topping. Not that my taste buds have anything against the deliciousness that is prosciutto, but I usually don’t see beef available.

Panna Cotta

Oh man, you can even see the vanilla bean brimming in this photo! They were not messing around with the true vanilla flavor in this panna cotta, but not in an overwhelming/artificial way.  Good texture, too.

For great ambience and good food – try Sette Osteria for lunch, dinner, or weekend brunch!
