nice place

Italian menu that is quite eclectic. Not typical. Quite pricey as well. Nice staff though the waiter we had we could hardly understand him.

We were at Osteria 177 once for lunch and once for diner and did not find any interesting flavors on our plates. Service was good and the atmosphere for once was silent. The waiter knew about the plates and wines.

We were spending a couple of nights at a marina in Annapolis with boating friends and of course, we all went out to dinner. The previous night we asked slip mates where they went for dinner as they were returning to their boat; they said they had a wonderful dinner at Osteria 177. Our group left the marina the next...

Hands down my favorite restaurant in Annapolis which has a wealth of excellent restaurants. The menu is innovative, interesting and fun. The food is always delicious. The restaurant has a lovely interior and impeccable service. Highly, highly recommended for either lunch or dinner. Reservations are a good idea for dinner. Could find no fault in this lovely restaurant and all... More

We made dinner reservations at Osteria 177 to end a day trip to Annapolis. The TripAdvisor reviews are positive but Annapolis is not Washington or New York. However, Osteria 177 would hold its own in any big city! We started with the Calamari Alla Griglia (grilled). Notice it's "grilled" not "fried." The calamari slices were accompanied by arugula and perfectly... More

My wife and I were had one of the best meals ever outside of multi starred Michelin restaurants in Europe. This meal is truly worth a drive from Washington or even Philadelphia. While expensive, Osteria is better value than many fine dining establishments in DC and certainly New York. Our server was friendly, and helpful without being unctuous. So glad... More

Excellent Italian. Fine dining. Great date place or group dinner venue. Good sized portions. Expensive though so be prepared, especially if eating more than one course.

Osteria 177 has delicious food and wine with friendly and down to earth staff. We had a huge group there for a friend's bachelorette dinner (in a private area no less!) and it was a truly wonderful experience. We sat there quit a while waiting for our food, but we were about 20 ppl. When the food did come, EVERYTHING... More

My wife and I had dinner here on Wednesday, August 19, and it was excellent, like a a quick visit to Sicily or Naples. The food was superb, everything we sampled. This included arugula salad, steamed octopus, pan-seared monkfish and jumbo shrimp over pappardelle, and grilled Chilean sea bass over greens with pine nuts and golden raisins. Dessert was tiramisu... More

We've been here a number of times and we've always enjoyed our dinner whether it was with friends or just the two of us. The Food and Service are always outstanding and we look forward to our next visit
