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...

When you walk through the door there is an air that tells you this is going to be a fantastic place. From the greeting through out the meal the service was impeccable. The menu offerings are both extensive and interesting. Our meals were without question some of the best that we have had in a very long career of enjoying... More

I had the best pasta dish is a really long time last night at Osteria 177. My wife had a perfectly cooked 20 oz Prime ribeye that was amazing! Everything was on point with the service. Timing was a little slow on drinks but the meal was so good, I didn't really care after I had eaten. Overall, a really... More

In the true Italian spirit, Osteria 177 delivers superior food, attentive service and a wonderful drink and wine selection. Although I feel the only negative is the noise level, one can overlook that with all the other advantages. The location in downtown is wonderful and the parking garage is 1/2 block away if you can't find on street parking. Try... More

Had a business dinner there and was impressed with the quality of the food but not the portion size. Very good Northern Italian cuisine but portion sizes were small. Had some service problems to the point that even getting bread took 20 minutes. Everything is ala carte including salad with dinner. Price is expensive and must say I have had... More
