Our first night in Richmond, Chris and I grabbed a bite to eat at Sette, a pizza joint on N. 23rd Street.
The restaurant is a small, intimate place with colorful, abstract artwork on the walls. Staff was prompt and cordial.
The table for two we sat at was sort of small, but big enough to hold one pie.
We ordered the Church Hill, which has pepperoni, roasted red peppers and mushrooms on a tomato sauce. It was so tasty! Take a look:
We had three pieces each and finished if up so we didn’t have to worry taking it back to the hotel. Not that we could stop eating it anyway! It was that good. 🙂
I sprinkled black pepper on my slices and Chris used parm cheese. There was plenty of sauce and cheese and all the flavors melded together beautifully. Nothing was burnt. Nothing overpowered everything else. Everything was in harmony and so was our tummies!
For dessert we shared tiramisu. Not really anything to write home about, but I find it hard to screw up tiramisu. It was a generous helping and one was enough for both of us. A nice ending to a wonderful meal.
We were tempted to go back another night, but we were only in Richmond for a short weekend and wanted to sample other local fare.
If we visit Richmond again, Sette will have to be the first food stop! Other pizzas I want to try are:
* Arugula: white sauce, arugula, roasted red peppers, goat cheese and basil
* The Greek: balsamic glaze, kalamata olives, merquez sausage, artichokes, grape tomatoes and feta
* The Florentine: white sauce, baby spinach and goat cheese
* Herbivore: white sauce, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, artichokes, kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, caramelized fennel and onions with mozzarella
* Wild Mushroom: tomato sauce with a blend of wild mushrooms
I count at least 5 more visits and I didn’t even glance at the appetizer or salad menus!
