Memories of Dining in Italy...Hand-made pastas, authentic sauces, excellent regional wines, and outstanding European-style service sum up the experience at Osteria 177. Having dined in Italy many times, the only difference between Italy and Osteria 177 is that I could understand the diners around me as they spoke English and not Italian...5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOsteria is nice...A great steak, great salad, decent place. A little pricey but not bad really. Great service!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Annapolis' BestOsteria 177 is magnificent. Its decor is captivating with its mauve interior walls, subdued lighting and its pleated curtains framing its windows. The furniture is ergonomically compatible to soothe a sore back and prevent slouching that some overstuffed chairs and booths allow. The service is beyond superb. Our server, Sabrina, was charming as she was professional and adhered to our even smallest need. The entries are exceptional. Osteria produces a large list of specials daily. We had the Sea Bass and the Duck Breast. Both were beyond outstanding. This exceptional dining establishment more than met our expectations for a truly delightful Mother's Day celebration. This restaurant is not for the inexpensive but is worth the splurge.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDINGThe food is amazing....and service is spot on .....love it, love it,, love it5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, and the serviceExcellent food, and the service was also very good. I'm not much of a white wine drinker, but it seemed the wine list was notably short of white wines by the glass. Also not many red wines by the glass. But several pages of wines by the bottle. Now that Maryland lets you take the bottle of wine with you when you leave the restaurant, I guess that means the entire wine list could be considered "by the glass". But frankly, once a bottle of wine is opened at my table, I can't recall very many times that there would have been anything left to take home!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTop dollar, and worth itBest food in a town with lots of great restaurants. This was our third visit, and both food and service are unmatched. The bill is higher than anywhere else we eat, but well worth it for special occasions.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AM1st Time here, definitely not last!We dined at Osteria 177 on a Thursday night before a performance at the Rams Head Tavern. This was our first time and we thoroughly enjoyed it! While a live jazz combo played, we enjoyed a lovely meal. Starting with a fresh, creative gin/cucumber cocktail (Floozie), continuing with fresh salads and onto our main dishes. I had the cioppino, which was superb and the spicy tomato broth was definitely worthy of dunking that crisp french bread into! Our only regret was that we didn't have time to enjoy a relaxed dinner and stay for desert! We'll definitely be back. Service was excellent; they acccommodated our tight timeline graciously and even validated our parking at Hillman garage.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA consistent favorite!We've been coming here for years and have always been pleased with its stellar, consistent quality. The Branzino is spectacular! For a treat, have the server de-bone it table side. I prefere to do it myself relishing in finding the tiniest morsel. Cocktails are well crafted & the wine list quit sufficient. The server gets the vibe from the table on whether you like discretion or more social intercourse. Perfect. There is something on the menu for every taste with copious daily specials. Prices, however, for this fixed income patron, have been steadily rising. But we always manage to find something delicious within our range.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location in the heartGreat location in the heart of down town Annapolis, close to public parking. Outstanding selection of beautifully prepared Italian cuisine, including unusual appetizers, handcrafted pastas, grilled meats and fish with wonderful finishing sauces, and desserts that complement the meal well. The wine list is thoughtfully curated, so course pairings are effortless. Nice, upbeat vibe and solid service4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as UsualOnce again, Osteria 177 did not disappoint. We had some discerning members of our dining party, and they were pleased. The server was very helpful to my vegetarian daughter and went out of his way to please. We will continue to have this restaurant be high on our list for fine dining.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is always consistent.Food is always consistent. Service is outstanding.

Everything was of the highest quality from the bresaola to the buffalo mozzarella flown in from Italy. The cioppino was excellent and the cinghiale was better than I remembered from my first visit. The panna cotta was quite unique with the addition of spices. Osteria 177 tops my list of favorites in Annapolis!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service, food, wineWaitor was exceptional, food was outstanding, It was like going to Disney everything was perfect .4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnnapolis Great FindMy husband's birthday dinner was a5 star event.The food was absolutely The BestThe server Demitri was a rare findKnowledgable, attentive and a greatHost.

Great bread and Olive Oil too! Top notch place for sure!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWithout question, the bestWithout question, the best italian restaurant in the Baltimore/Washington area. This is not your "Momma Leone's meatball and red sauce" restaurant but rather, a sophisticated and authentic italian dining establishment. It isn't surprising that the wait staff has remained with the restaurant for a number of years - they do that well here. The specials are always well thought and seasonal. Do not miss the chance to dine here.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBoth dinners were deliciousBoth dinners were delicious and our waitress was exceptional. It is very pricey but perfect for the special occasion.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMCouldn't get in for dinnerCouldn't get in for dinner in the middle of the week in March (start early) but found out why at lunch. Dmitri, our waiter, made several recommendations, egg washed noodles with boar meat red sauce for me and a white cream sauce over pear dumplings for my guest. The pasta is handmade here and careful attention is made to all the small details. Definitely a 'go back'. Lunch portions were good sized and no room for dessert sadly!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Very willing to customize any dish.
