A word from Osteria 177
Osteria 177 is the ultimate expression of an Italian tavern where the main attraction is imported delicacies of one-of-a-kind food and wine. Adorned by barreled wine, an Osteria would never lack the sought out local specialties, spices, cheeses, fish or meats. It was here that many people tried to alleviate life's stresses by numbering themselves with good food, good wince, and good company. The owner/chef of the Osteria would take the utmost pride in stocking these praised elements as the basis for mouthwatering meals, a delicious dance-for-all of the five senses. This is the basis for Osteria 177.

    Dinner was terrific. Everyone in our party enjoyed their dinner. My partner & the wife of our friend thought the Cosmopolitans were outstanding. I had duck - a very nice flavor pairing with blueberries. the duck could have been crispier, but it was delicious.

    What a gem! Great food at very reasonable prices - we went for lunch and the fact that they offer any bottle of wine for half the price made it a bargain! I would recommend eating at Osteria 177 for anyone who is looking for a nice, quiet place on Sunday - great for groups!

    Celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary at Osteria. I called ahead to request to have glasses of Prosecco waiting for us as well as request Dimitri as our server. The entire staff knocked it out of the park. Food was, as always, excellent. Let Dimitri make wine recommendations. He never gets it wrong.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    The food, service, and ambiance were great, but the prices were too high for the portion sizes. I understand that Annapolis in general can be pricey, but I expected much more for what I paid for. Happy to say we tried it, but likely will not come back.

    My wife and I were about to give up on finding great Italian food. We've eaten at a few places in Little Italy as well as the District, but have been mostly disappointed until we found Osteria 177. Osteria was a pleasant surprising find in Annapolis. We started with Calamari alla Griglia, grilled squid with arugula salad, that was tender and delicious. Next, my wife had veal parmigiana that was excellent. I ordered the Cioppino alla Genovese with a side of linguine with garlic and olive oil. It was absolutely delicious. The seafood was fresh and delicate, the tomato broth was pleasingly spicy and incredibly flavorful. In fact, so flavorful that I half thought to take the leftover broth with me because it was so good. I highly recommend this restaurant. My wife and I plan to return to this restaurant frequently to work our way through the entire menu. The Pappardella al Ragu di Cinghiale will be the next dish I order, perhaps this upcoming Friday.

    My wife and I celebrated our 6th anniversary, and at the risk of sounding far older than we are, Osteria 177 was our first true "Yelp-only find" - I wanted to do something different for our anniversary, Annapolis had been fun in the past but I didn't know it well; Osteria 177 was highly rated, so we gave it a try and were not disappointed. The food was great, our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive but in our face. A nice atmosphere, right on Main Street in the middle of everything. A short walk to other bars if you're looking for something with live music or a bar scene just a few blocks away. And the harbor is right at the end of Main Street, a nice way to end the evening with a walk. A great night, great restaurant!

    This was our first visit to Osteria, but it won't be our last. We went with friends who have eaten there on several occasions, and they were anxious for us to try it. The drinks were generous and the food delicious. We felt so comfortable that we ended up staying at our table and chatting for almost 3 hours.

    We went with friends, all of us had eaten at Osteria 177 before, but this time we got the best server, Dimitri, who not only helped with dinner suggestions but also made fabulous wine recommendations! The food was very good, excellently prepared and presented. The only disappointment was that the chicken portion of my wife's entree was extremely small - we don't like big portions but this was at the other extreme, maybe 4 ounces. In spite of that, we highly recommend Osteria 177 and will continue to be frequent patrons.

    second time at Osteria. food was decent but not great this time. dont mind paying premium prices for really good food but this time I felt like we over paid. Wait staff was friendly but mia for second half of the meal. Overall, we felt like the B team was in the kitchen and the staff was short handed.

    The food is fantastic, fresh ingredients prepared in the best Italian style. The atmosphere is modern yet understated. It doesn't shout to get your attention although it holds your eye when you look around. One the evening we visited, the server was quite personable but seemed to be having some serious problems. Maybe he was taking care of too many tables, maybe he had no runner or bus boy, I'm not quite sure. But he deserted us once right after we sat down (but before we even ordered drinks) and again during the meal service. We were happy with the meal, but concerned about the service.

    We were celebrating our anniversary- we also hadn't been on a date since Valentines Day (we have a one year old). I noted in the Open Table comments that it was our anniversary and that we'd love a good table. Sure enough, the hostess made sure we had a table upfront looking out onto Main Street. Our waiter Demetri was great- very personable and informative. They were out of the dish I had intended to order, but I suppose that is bound to happen sometimes. Otherwise, my meal was delicious. Started with the grilled octopus. Next, pasta with seafood and white wine sauce. Finished with the profiteroles. My husband had the snails- which I think he thought were just okay- the veal parma and the salted caramel gelato. Definitely recommend.

    We entered the restaurant with a waiter, "Chris", sternly saying "Hey!!...(glaring eyes towards hostess) She politely turned towards my wife and I and handled us in seating and introductions. Our waiter is the same one involved in the flare-up up front. Really, I wouldn't be mentioning this except...As this waiter is standing off to the side near the bar we hear him and another employee carry on about this hostess. We got very tired of the murmuring and bickering attitude and almost asked to move. I had to ask the waiter what his name was towards the end of the meal. The food and the OTHER expediting wait-staff were excellent and saved the evening for us. "Chris" needs an attitude adjustment.

    I don't know what they are doing, but they have upped their game! We enjoyed dinner with out of town guests only two weeks ago and the meal and service were outstanding. On Saturday night, we were there again for a friend's birthday dinner and it was over the top. Great tender grilled calamari, delicate carpaccio, gorgeous Chilean sea bass, a perfect branzino, and a veal chop that was out of this world. Wonderful cocktails and wine. Exceptional service from Dimitri. Just when we think it can't get better, it does!

    We were consistently told by locals that this is the best restaurant in Annapolis, and they were right. It was so good that we ate there the only two nights we were in town. The Sicilian style salmon made salmon a totally new and delicious dish. The seabass was as good as a local told us. My sister liked her pasta dish so much she ate it two nights in a row. In addition, the staff is friendly but professional. Wish I lived there to eat at this restaurant.

    We enjoy Osteria fairly regularly, but tonight was really outstanding. My parents were visiting from out of town & we were celebrating a few birthdays, so a special dinner was in order. Osteria delivered. Grilled calamari were tender & delicious, just the right amount of dressing, & beef carpaccio was beautiful. We requested penne with simple marianara sauce; it was lovely with tiny, grape tomatoes. Grilled veal chops were huge & perfectly prepared. A Barolo went perfectly. Salted caramel ice cream & tiramisu topped it off. Service from John was top notch. A classical guitarist playing in the background. All made for a great evening!
