We were in town for one night so we wanted a memorable meal. Thank you fellow trip advisors for your rave reviews of this place. I called in the evening and they had a slot opened at 9 pm. We arrived a few minutes early and the hostess was welcoming. We were promptly seated by 9 and we had a... More

This was our most memorable dining experience in Annapolis. The decor was classy but comfortable. Service was attentive and friendly. We started with Prosciutto & Melon. I had Linguine alle Vongole. She had Pappardelle al Ragu di Cinghiale. Finished with gelato and espresso. Solid classic fare. Will definitely return to try the other items on the menu.

My husband and I had planned to have a Friday night dinner at another restaurant but when we arrived there it was closed for a private party. What to do?? We thought we would try Osteria since we were close by but wondered if we could get in without reservations. Yes, the very welcoming hostess was able to seat us.... More

My wife took me here for my birthday. We had a wonderful experience! Our waiter was very attentive, the atmosphere was open, yet intimate. We had the calamari which was cooked to perfection and lightly spiced. My shrimp scampi was the best I've ever had. The shrimp were huge and succulent, the garlic sauce incredible. Finally, I finished with an... More

Being told their tuna sushi was "the best in the world", I ordered it. One third of tuna couldn't be cut with a knife. Once I told this to the server, he completely ignored us. Finding another server we asked for our bill. He apologized for our bad experience and would have the manager call us. Never got a call.... More

Perfection. Osso bucco. Tartar. Whole fish expertly prepared and de boned at the table. Excellent cocktails. Amazing Wine list. Superb service. And the atmosphere is nice without being fussy.

I visited on a busy Saturday night and service was flawless and food excellent. I had the Branzino, a whole white fish served table side which was exquisite. I tried other dishes and appetizers from my companions and all were delicious as well. The caprese and grilled squid were excellent. Gnocchi and pappardelle were also standouts. The profiteroles ( the... More
