A colleague recently suggested we meet at Osteria for lunch, an upscale Italian restaurant on Main Street in Annapolis where I'd only dined for very special occasions. My recollection was that the restaurant was too pricey for normal weekday fare. How wrong I was. Osteria has added a reasonably-priced lunch menu with several delicious options. At my friend's urging I... More

Shared dinner with friends here last month and was pleasantly surprised, as last time I had been to this location, it was a Burger King! Even though it was crowded and we did not have a reservation, they were able to seat us. Service was good although we did wait a little while for our food (possibly due to the... More

Great Italian restaurant. Food was excellent (NOT typical American pasta) and the service was fantastic. I'll definitely go back.

Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, or your first night in town - stopping by Osteria 177 for dinner is a treat. The food is top notch and the wines are reasonably priced (especially if you go when they're giving half off bottles under $100). The servers are friendly and quite attentive. I've been here three times since August 2014 and... More

waiter elario was great and some of the food was good. i made the mistake of ordering n. italian dumplings because i had never had them before. did not enjoy them. on the whole it was an enjoyable experience until i found out that they had charged me $40 for an after dinner cognac which i feel is completely exorbitant.

I made reservation for my son and his friends for dinner before prom night. Everyone in the party enjoyed the food and said the service was excellent and the cost less than expected. I really appreciate the staff treating the young adults in the party with the same respect and service level as would be expected by adults running a... More

A local suggested Osteria since it's her favorite and I can see why. Servers are professional. Trendy and beautiful interior. Food was really good. Wine selection is really nice. We were there for an Eater dinner and couldn't have been happier with our choice especially since they can cater to gluten sensitivity. It's right on Main Street which is a... More

We'd walked past this restaurant many times and decided to try it on a a busy Saturday night. Ended up at the bar to be entertained by a real bartender! He was amazing and seemed to have a loyal clientele who helped us pick our food choices. The calamari was huge and well done, but my swordfish saltimboca was unbelievable.... More

My husband and I were looking forward to dining at Osteria 177 on Easter Sunday. We have dined there several times and have always loved the food, wine selection and service. Unfortunately on Sunday, after chatting with the hostess, we decided to go elsewhere. The reason is simple...the restaurant was only serving from their dinner menu.I found this very strange...a...
