Annapolis
About the restaurant


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 wine, 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.

This is our favorite restaurant in Annapolis! The food is always outstanding and the service shines! The veal parmesan is enough for 2 to share (maybe even 3 people) and it's presentation is unique. Any of the pasta dishes melt in your mouth. My husband said he could eat here every night.

Great choice. Restaurant is bright, comfortable, and quiet, perfect for enjoying dinner with friends and actually being able to talk. Sarah, our server, was excellent, answering all questions and making very helpful suggestions. All of us really enjoyed our meals and left stuffed. Definitely a place we would return to the next time we're in town.

Thrilled to share our favorite Italian restaurant with my parents last night. Always delicious, with friendly staff, huge portions, and a reasonable price. My Dad particularly enjoyed the Zabaglione, which he hadn’t seen on a menu of years.
