SouthFlorida.com correspondent

Sette Osteria

2103 NW Second Ave., Miami, 305-576-8282, SetteOsteria.com/Wynwood

The owners of this traditional Italian restaurant with two locations in Washington, D.C. — founded 15 years ago — have introduced an outpost in Wynwood.

"Wynwood is full of young, aspiring professionals, and Sette Osteria will give them the opportunity to enjoy homemade recipes and an endless selection of wine," owner Iraklis Karabassis says. "The Wynwood decor differs a lot from our other locations. We wanted Miami to give off a more earthy and tropical feel. Our menu in Miami reflects more refreshing dishes that aren’t too hot and align within Miami’s heat."

Examples are bruschette pomodoro ($9), fresh burrata ($18) and cannelloni filled with ricotta and spinach ($19).

Bestsellers are margherita pizza ($14), Caprese mozzarella ($16), eggplant layered with tomato sauce, basil and mozzarella ($18), fettuccine with veal-beef Bolognese sauce ($19) egg-free tagliolini pasta with shrimp and pesto sauce ($19) and veal piccata with lemon-caper sauce ($27).

Warm chocolate cake is baked to order, and cheesecake is crafted with ricotta and mascarpone and garnished with a wild-berry sauce (both $9).

There are no cocktails, but sangria, wine and beer are available.

Lunch and dinner are served daily, plus weekend brunch, amid green hues and warm earthy tones, copper hanging lights, a bar, wooden furniture and counter seating overlooking an open kitchen. Greenery in wooden planters is displayed in a decorative framework and also hangs from high ceilings. Patio seating is pending.
