White table cloths, easy listing music, and of course excellent food. Salads fresh, bread warm, veal tender, pasta and wild boar sauce, penne cotta, all very good to excellent. Just up from the harbor , a natural for boaters. Older crowd. Dinner starts at 5

We have dined in most of the restaurants in the area, this is by far the best. It takes awhile to prepare your food but it is worth it. The service was just right. Prices are the same as in any top quality restaurant. Best to go on weeknight and make reservations.

The first night we went there but was turned down because we got there at 9 PM. So the next day we went back, was seated right away at 5:30. The ambiance was good. Our food was Delish, our wine was full bodied, our pannacotta was so good. Please try this restaurant when you are at Annapolis!

Stopped in to have a drink at the very small bar (only about 10 charis). The drink was excellent, bartender was great and didn't rush us at all. The atmosphere was upscale for sure. The food going by looked amazing. Lots of bottles of wine were opened. Regulars at the bar said they had the best food. Our next visit,... More

We first ate here with our son and when we were deciding where to go for a (major) wedding anniversary my husband didn't hesitate: Osteria. The food - we're working our way through their seafood dishes - is excellent and the service is exceptional. The noise level is low; they make it easy to enjoy your meal and your company!

Recently went here for a wedding anniversary dinner. Service was excellent and menu had wide range of choices and specials. All prices are at upper end of the range for Annapolis. Meat dishes have portions that are too much for one person (at least they are for us). We split a 16 ounce pork chop that was well prepared with... More

Had the opportunity to meet friends from Arizona for dinner in Annapolis and they desired Italian fare. My daughter, who lives in Annapolis in the summer, suggested Osteria. The four of us had a spacious booth and attentive service. The waiter's accent was quite heavy, but we had no problem understanding him. All of the meals that were ordered were... More

One of the best places in town to have seafood. All dishes on menu are great! Especially love the daily offering of soup which taste like its made with heavy cream, but is not. Great location, and if you are afraid of parking.... there is valet in the evenings. If you decide to park on your own, the city garage... More

Food too expensive, portions too small and flavors not correct in dishes. Has a good reputation but I would take a pass on this one.
