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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Went there with my sister and her husband on vacation from England. The food was excellent, the server was friendly and entertaining. All in all, a great dining experience."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Food selections were tasty but nothing too exciting, only our first visit. Wine by the glass selection were satisfactory but still not great. Service during first half was attentive and thorough, towards end, hard to get his attention - hanging out by bar chatting with other staff. Will make a second visit with time for full bottle of wine."

  • "Great Italian food and very good table service. My only complaint was the hostess forgot about us after we checked in and we had to remind her that we were still waiting for a table 20 minutes after our reservation time. Not sure what that was about. But the servers and the food were excellent."

  • "My husband and I frequently visit Annapolis and have dined here on two occasions, two years apart. I typically do not choose Italian restaurants but find this particular restaurant to be fantastic! The entrees are interesting and being a Marylander/seafood lover, I thoroughly enjoy the freshness and abundance of seafood in each dish. All the staff are extremely attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend it and will definitely be going back the next time we are in town."

  • "We eat out yery frequently, but rarely have had as good an all round experience as our July 4th meal. The food, and particularly the waiter were exceptional. We had a window seat for the parade, which rounded it all off. We'll be back."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "This restaurant never fails to please. Between the lovely craft cocktails, the rich and savory pasta dishes, and the beautiful cuts of meat, there's not a single part of the meal I'm ever unhappy with. They always have a big list of specials, allowing you to try new dishes, though I often stick with my tried and true favorites. Absolutely lovely decor in the restaurant, and the wait staff are extremely attentive and knowledgable. I'm looking forward to going back soon."

  • "We had the most wonderful time at Osteria 177! Our first visit there, we celebrated our wedding anniversary on June 30th. Arturo went over the top with his culinary celebration, after my wife asked to go off menu. His filet is simply extraordinary, and his passion for food is evident in each plating. We wound up spending about three hours there, in an unhurried, traditional Italian manner of dining. Dmitri, their Sommelier, catered to our every wish throughout the entire experience. We enjoyed talking wine and Italian terroir with him. Their decor is warm and inviting, with imaginative art tastefully displayed. Comforting as that is, it's about the food. We will most definitely be back!"

  • "We were married earlier in the day at the Annapolis Courthouse Chapel and decided on Osteria for dinner. The food was phenomenal and the service we received was fantastic! This is some of the best Italian I've ever eaten, particularly the caramelized Sea Bass."

  • "The food is amazing and the wait staff is even better! Demetrie is one of the top waiters in the city."

  • "Our total dining experience was excellent. Our waiter was attentive and the staff was well in sync taking care of us during the evening starting with drinks through desert. The food off the chart, perfecto! We will entertain at Osteria 177 again."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The service was amazing and the pastas were especially good - the entrees, not so much. pasta dishes we ordered (wild boar and a seafood one) and the clams and mussel app were amazing - they were so nice, they split the 2 pasta dishes into 4 individ svgs for us so we can enjoy it as a pasta course before our entrees. For our entrees we had 2 orders of duck, which was good, veal parm...pretty typical of what you would expect, and salmon, which sad to say was overcooked. We sail to Annapolis at least a couple of times per season but and this was our first visit to Osteria. We will come back for sure but will stick with apps and pasta."

  • "I really enjoyed the restaurant. The waiter was really good and nice. The food was good and flavorful. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "My wife and I went here for an early dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Everything was amazing, from the friendly, informative, and funny waiter Dimitri to the delicious entrees to the scrumptious desserts. We had the sea bass and ahi tuna entrees, the crème brûlée and cheesecake (extraordinary) desserts, and chose the Jermann pinot grigio 2011. We rank this among the top ten restaurants we have dined in."

  • "In a world of franchise restaurants, it's wonderful to find an ooriginal where the food is well thought out and prepared with care as welll as novelty. The mushroom soup was divine as was everything else for that matter."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "I took my fiance there for Father's Day and it was excellent. The waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu choices. In fact, his knowledge was so good we thought he had actually lived in Italy. This restaurant is a very good fine and worthy of a second, third, etc. visit"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We are still talking about the amazing dinner we had at Osteria. The menu is creative and the kitchen is able to modify any recipe to accommodate dietary needs. I would have liked to see more non-meat appetizers. Don't bring the kids, it would ruin it for you and the other guests. For a Thursday evening, the restaurant was full. The service was amazing but our server was handling too many tables and he was not as attentive as he could have been."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "A repeat performer. We love the truly authentic Italian menu. Having traveled throughout Italy, there is a certain flavor that is so difficult to replicate but Osteria in Annapolis has done just that, the knowledge of the wait staff is expert. The complimentary knowledge on pairing of wines based on your taste in wines is exceptional. Thank you for a wonderful experience."

  • "Had a very nice dinner at Osteria. A state senator was dining at the same time which tells you the restaurant is good. Food was terrific, wait staff was very knowledgeable. This was a special dinner for birthday."

  • "Osteria 177 is one of our favorite places in Annapolis to dine. The food is fabulous and the service is always great! They have an amazing wine list in all price ranges and we just love their cocktails (highly recommend the Osteria 177)! We frequently travel to Italy and we feel that this restaurant is the closest it gets to true authentic Italian food. Highly Recommend!"

  • "This is a great find for those who enjoy fresh ingredients, prepared in house meals and knowledgable servers! We had Dimitri and he was fantastic. The food is unforgettable. "

  • "Osteria 177 is a favorite, and this was not our first visit, but it was truly outstanding. We were celebrating several 50th anniversaries, and they could not have done a better job for us. The food, the wine, and the service are in a class by themselves, and this was an evening that we will remember with the greatest pleasure!"

  • "First time and will be returning. Went for anniversary dinner and service was great, from pictures by the hostess, an waiter that perfectly balanced attention and giving us our time to enjoy each other and the experience, to the bartender and other staff who congratulated us and took excellent care to make sure we had everything we needed. Food was just as pleasing, grilled calamari, filet mignon and shrimp scampi all seasoned and cooked very well, recommend all. Finally, had and old fashion and a tequila drink called tapita with grapefruit and peach, both of which were a good balance between the flavor of the spirit and the added ingredients. Overall one of my best dining experiences."

  • "Beautiful space on Main Street in historic Annapolis. Food was delicious; cappuccino a real treat; service was very friendly. Fish and veal entrees were superb. Will return to try other menu offerings."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "First time here...and chose it for a special occasion. NOT DISAPPOINTED! As if the food wasn't fabulous enough, the entire experience was heightened by a very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Our server was spot on in his recommendations given our wine selection which made the entire experience a most memorable one."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • " Everything about our evening at the Osteria 177 was outstanding. The waiter was very attentive and full of information about the menu items. The wine selection was eclectic and tight. We had an un-oaked Jermann Chardonnay from Northern Italy and a 2008 Mastrojanni Brunello. These wines paired beautifully with the grilled garlic-flavored calamari - a pleasant deviation from the usual batter-dipped version. Our main courses ranged from simple filet mignon, seared ahi tuna, to a fresh Dover sole that must have just gotten off the plane at Dulles. We did not have time to sample the desserts, but we will be back. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Almost like an upscale cafeteria setting... such a shame given the quality of the food and the service which deserve a MUCH nicer home. Despite this, I will certainly go back in a heartbeat."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "But this time, it was near perfection. I only write reviews, when the experience is completely amazing or terrible,on anything. I wish I wasn't restricted to keeping this a short one, so I'll refrain from specifics. I've worked in every position in a restaurant and waited tables for 13 years. Most of that in finer establishments. Near the end of our meal, my wife and I discussed the experience and couldn't think of any flaws. We then thought of the 5 other times we had dined here and had always been pleased then too. It is very evident from the creative menu to the highly trained staff that the leadership at Osteria is outstanding. We don't frequent any place often but we will definitely make this our usual place in Annapolis. Good job!"

  • "Took my 14yr old to dinner and it was absolutely amazing. Service and food was so far my best experience of 2014."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Everything was incredible. I asked my wife "How did they make a simple salad look so good?" The main dish was just as exquisite. This was a memory maker."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Was very pleased with my experience with Osteria 177. I took my boyfriend here for our anniversary and he was pleased also. The way the restaurant is set up, it is very crammed but that could also make it a very romantic scene. We are foodies and everything on the menu exceeded our expectations. Before dessert even came we were planning the next time we could come here. Our waiter, Chris, was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and what wines to pair with our entrees. Not to mention, Sunday's are half off bottles of wine!!! We will definitely be back and will highly recommend this place to anyone!"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Service was pleasant but perfunctory. Food was good but not outstanding. My husbands veal was saved by the sauce and cheese. Meat itself tasteless. My fish,sea bass was similar interesting preparation although too much and greens were saturated. Fish itself no taste. While preparation nice I expect fish to be flavorful on its own. We expected more. Nice evening but not special. Seemed to busy to bother with us. Espresso great!!!!!"

  • "We chose Osteria 177 for a military ball dinner and the food was amazing. My only complaints were to the fact that my group (of 6) was seated 25 minutes past our reservation time--which defeats the purpose of the reservation. On top of the late seating, our waiter (although incredibly kind) only attended to our table once. Wine glass being empty and already perturbed I think some extra attention would have been nice seeing that later customers were being served before us. The food however nearly made up for it all as the steak was cooked and seasoned to perfection. I recommend it but would hope for better service."

  • "I've been to Osteria 3 times in 2 months, and each time it's a visit to remember. The prosciutto and melon is refreshing and light. The veal tortellini is elegant and filling, but not bloating. The pannacotta tastes like 3 days before Christmas (you'll know what I'm talking about when you taste it)! The service is knowledgeable and friendly, but not overbearing. A fine way to spend any night of the week."

Reserve a table or take your chances at the bar - both choices result in a memorable experience that’s all good. Treating yourself or treating others? Go here."

  • "We celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary at Osteria 177. It truly was one of our best dining experiences ever. I am a vegetarian - I had Sacchetti Di Pasta Ai Porcini (pears & ricotta pasta in gorgonzola cream sauce). It was a new combination of flavors for me & was wonderful. My husband had cioppino which he orders whenever he can. He said this was possibly the best he has had. The service...I wish I could remember our server's name. He was pleasant, helpful, attentive, friendly - we can't recall when we have experienced such service. There was only 1 "issue" - the restaurant was not crowded at all, and we were seated at a mediocre table next to a party of 10 or 12. Yea we should have asked to be moved...Food was superb!"
