Wonderful Experience

We celebrated my husband's birthday at Osteria 177 and had a wonderful time. The menu was loaded with appealing items from apps to desert. I had the veal cheeks which were superb. They were tender and flavorful and resembled osso bucco complete with the saffron risotto. My husband had a... read more

How can it be that I have lived in Annapolis for a number of years and have not made this a regular dining treat (treat because its menu, so tempting(!) tempts in the direction of no-calories-spared, classic preparations with the chef's (owner and executive chef Arturo) personal genius. That's really not it. Perhaps it's because downtown Annapolis is a busy... More

I love this restaurant. The food is always delicious and the pasta is made in house. They offer some of the best pasta dishes I've ever had. Be sure to have a dinner at Osteria, you won't be disappointed. Reservations are recommended but not required.

The restaurant is not too big and is elegantly decorated. The menu is short but the food is very well prepared. We ate penne alla matriciana and sacchetti di pasta ai porcini. The first one was very good but a little bit spicy but the second was really delicious. We tried for dessert a creme brulee which also was very... More

Osteria is a real treat--surely one of the finest restaurants in Annapolis. We enjoyed mussels in a great broth, a parmigiana, and an amazing thinly sliced swordfish fused with prosciutto. Service was attentive and the food delicious. We will be heading back soon for one of the hidden secrets of Annapolis: the $15 prix fixe multi-course lunch.

I had dinner last night with three friends. We had the table in the window, which was lovely and overlooked Main Street. The restaurant is small and the tables are a bit close together. This can make conversation difficult, depending on the conversation of the people at the next table. The service was very friendly and our waiter quite knowledgable... More

My husband and I happened open Osteria 177 just passing by as walking in downtown Annapolis. We looked at the menu and saw so many interesting entrees and appetizers, we decided we had to try it. SO glad we did. I started with the Osteria 177 cocktail- delicious-refreshing, light, no syrupy or diluted with soda as in so many restaurants... More

Don't get me wrong--the food here is marvelous and the staff is uber-professional. The management of a 2 seating (7:30 and 9:30) pre fixe NYE dinner was not. Tables from the 7:30 seating lingered as long as 10:45...our reservation was for 9:30 and when not seated by close to 11, we were pretty PO'd. Should have let all early seating... More

Simply happened by the Saturday night of the Military Bowl, a night when the town was buzzing. Saw the menu, walked in and asked for a table for two. For starters, they told us that we could eat there, but they needed the table for a reservation an hour from then. I thought this was very considerate of both us... More

This is an understated but beautiful restaurant. The menu is extensive which is sometimes troubling but Osteria seems to use standard items in a variety of dishes. The cold antipasto is superb with a variety of Italian meats, cheeses, olives and grilled pineapple. Antipasto for two was enough to feed six people. Our group split down the middle with three...
