Announced via release, Sassetta will start serving what it promises will be some of the city’s best pizza tonight, when it will host its first dinner service. The restaurant occupies a space in the District’s Decorative Center, where it shares a patio with Wheelhouse. The cuisine at Sassetta is described as “Italian by way of California,” and is on display via a selection of small plates, pizzas, and pastas.
Look forward to dishes like yellowfin tuna crudo topped with fava bean and strawberry, or charred Spanish octopus with salsa verde and cauliflower. Freshly-made pastas, like a seasonally-appropriate ramp tortelloni served with tomato broth and parmesan, offer a budget-friendly dinner option, as do the creatively-topped pies that are perfect for sharing.
Sassetta opens for dinner tonight at 5 p.m. Scope out the menu below before making a reservation.
