My husband and I enjoyed a lovely lunch today, great pasta and "small" Caesar Salad on the special lunch menu, a great value ($15). Dinner tends to be more expensive, so we went there for lunch. It's on Main Street in Annapolis, so we can go on the Circulator trolley.

This is one of the best restaurants in Annapolis. They have an interesting and reasonably priced wine list, and the kitchen produces imaginative and delicious meals. The seafood dishes are particularly fine and not just because of their proximity to the bay - they work magic with fish.

I've already done one review, the first time I ate here, but felt compelled to add another glowing follow up for my second visit. As I guessed, the first time was not a fluke, his restaurant is as high as they get on my list. My husband and I shared the arugula salad, with shaved Parmesan cheese on top, just... More

The biggest disappointment was they had run out of two of the appetizers (both had eggplant), I was really craving, and it was only 7:00 PM. Both of our ordered appetizers, arugula salad and melon with prosciutto, were somewhat disappointing. The melon had little taste and the salad was salty. Our main courses were good. Although my husband said his... More

we booked this off trip advisor reviews and it was better than we could have expected across the board, they take reservations, they checked to ensure we were still coming, they greeted us warmly, the sat us promptly in the front near the side windows, the served us with style and humour and they fed us like kings. well done...

All I can say is WOW! We ended up at Osteria 177 looking for a great Italian meal while visiting Annapolis and that is exactly what we got. From the fresh grilled calamari, delicious gnocchi, and the main course of fresh fish everything was outstanding. My wife had the Chilean sea bass and I had the sole. Everything was cooked... More

We stopped by for a Saturday dinner and Osteria was packed but the service was on perfect. We asked for our drinks up front and when the wife asked for a white Russian, our server mentioned he was the only one there at the moment. We had a great time and the food was spectacular. Ask for the Benzino fish... More

This could be Annapolis' benchmark for fine dining. The New Yorkish interior decor may seem odd in the middle of a historic town noted for its colonial architecture. Once you get past this, the convivial and professional waiter service transports you to a rather unforgettable experience. First course of caprese with prosciutto paired well with my Giome red. The homemade... More
