Comfortable elegant seating and exquisite food made my recent dinner with family perfect. I would recommend any of their homemade pasta dishes. The Chilean sea bass was fantastic and perfectly executed . The desserts were beautifully presented and delicious as well.

After so many glowing reviews, we thought this would be a terrific place to try. The food was good, some of it very good, but the service was so off that it was hard to enjoy. Our waiter just seemed to lose interest in us and kept us waiting forever for everything without any communication at all. Really poor. For... More

Date night here during the week, no reservation needed. We were immediately seated. Started with drinks and carpaccio. The bread that was served was delicious, the carpaccio was amazing. Beef was super thin on a bed of arugula. Husband ordered Penne alla Vodka with Crab meat and I had the gnocchi with marinara. The penne had such big chunks of... More

If you want a truly French (slow) dining experience in Annapolis, this place is for you. Our food was well-prepared and exceptionally tasty. The food deserves five stars. However, the service, and I mean just about every aspect of the service, deserves no stars whatsoever. The entrees took over 1 and 3/4 hours to get to the table. The waiters... More

Walked into a 90% empty restaurant and was told if we didn't have a reservation they could not take us, then the waiter just walked away. Won't try and go back

Celebrated a combined birthday anniversary with friends. It's seems to be our go to place when celebrating a special occasion. As always the meal was wonderful... Wine perfect and service was great. The staff was very helpful in describing and recommending menu items and specials.

We were in town and wanted to try Osteria again - let me say we were not disappointed! The salmon was De-Lish! Great service, great wine. Get a window seat so you can people watch - it's on a very busy pedestrian street in the heart of Annapolis. Perfect for a special occasion.

This was another restaurant that my son made for my birthday weekend. We were immediately seated which was the first positive. We were given menus and a wine list and then sat. A busboy came and gave us water and our waiter asked for drink order. We weren't quite ready. Big mistake. We then waited for 10 minutes before our... More

If you love fine Northern Italian cuisine, here's your place! Prices are in line with other upper-end Annapolis eateries, but this one's worth it. The grilled calamari was exquisite, the Caesar salad fresh and sophisticated, our entrees were perfection, the chocolate souffle pre-made but tasty. The wait staff was professional, personal, yet unobtrusive. The restaurant was neither sedate nor intimate--hip... More
