Italian


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.

My wife and I have been coming to Osteria since the owner/chef first opened it over 15 years ago. The quality of the food never varies. It’s always top notch. The wait staff makes you feel like valued guests. It’s our favorite restaurant in Anne Arundel County. If you’re looking for superior
Italian food with a creative flair, you can’t do better than Osteria.

Wonderful meal. Excellent service from Dimitri and team. Gracious hostess. All around fantastic dinner. Ambiance is lovely. A full house, but still plenty quiet for easy conversation. Very comfortable banquet seating. Octopus appetizer was among the best octopus dishes I've ever had. Tortelloni with wild boar ragu was similarly excellent as was the Snapper Livornese. We were told the menu had been reduced in 2020, but it remained full of more than enough great options for all tastes. We'll be back for sure. Highly recommend.

The food was wonderful and creatively plated. Our server was from Italy and explained the dishes and recommended a great wine to go with our selections. He was also attentive as well as the waitress that keep our water flowing. We would highly recommend anyone visiting Annapolis to make reservations and experience a lovely dinner.

Everything from start to finish was just superb! The waitstaff and the attentiveness without being at all obtrusive was first rate. The entire staff was friendly, helpful and SO pleasant. The setting was perfect- spacious, quiet enough to hear our conversations and above all, the food was absolutely wonderful! The BEST veal parmigiana I have ever had, hands down! The presentation was lovely and I just can’t say enough wonderful things about our meal and our experience there!

I really loved the food and service. The only thing that bothered me was that I mentioned to the waiter that it was our anniversary, I thought they would have brought a complimentary dessert or something small but there was nothing. I was a little upset that they did not do anything special. Other than that everything else was wonderful! The waiter went out of his way to suggest a different dish when he realized the steak had way more fat. He suggested a different dish because from his experience he knew that it would not have tasted as tender and amazing as it normally would be. Also one of the hostesses was setting up a new table next to us and when she shook out the table cloth dust particles landing into our wine glasses (we purchased a bottle for the table) the waiter without a question got us a new bottle. While they really gave us great service, we just wish they wanted to celebrate our anniversary in a special way.

We've had the great fortune to live in Italy and have thoroughly enjoyed the cuisine and hospitality in the various trattorias and ristorantes we had visited. From the moment you walk in, through the warm hospitality and of course the incredibly well presented and flavorful menu items, our experience at Osteria 177 was superb and truly like stepping back into a high quality restaurant in Florence or Milan. We had the great fortune of having one of the owners host us and we thoroughly enjoyed reminiscing with him about life in Italia. Osteria 177 is a must visit .... and for us a must return. Thank you.

We ate here Saturday, 7/10/21. Food was outstanding! It was crowded not packed. Don’t leave without ordering dessert. This is one 2nd time we have had dinner here. Make reservations especially on weekends.

We had a lovely meal with excellent food. After initially believing that our waiter was going to be stuffy, he turned out to be very attentive and not condescending. Service was prompt and efficient. The burrata was very fresh and the veggies that went with it were done just right. My branzino was outstanding--just a hint of sweetness from the crab and a very light and delightful sauce.

We didn’t like that we had to purchase either bottled still or sparkling water rather than having tap water. Seems like the restaurant was padding their pockets with this requirement. Otherwise, the food was fabulous!

My husband and I dined with another couple, and we all raved about our dinners. I had the gnocchi, which was the best I ever tasted, and the sauce was so light and flavorful! Our waitress was very attentive.

Inflexibility with reservation time and zero acknowledgment of the situation put a sour note at the start. We made it anyway thanks to not changing for dinner and traffic stars aligning. Then our waitress laid out a matter of fact water policy which felt needless; she brought it up, not us. I’d say that the staff could demo more empathy for their guests’s experiences based on those starts. The waitress was also was positive, encouraging. Food was very good— lots of made in house quality items. Slight skin on a sauce was followed by delicious tastes, so I focused on tastes. Good food when traveling is important— the food is very good, the restaurant is very nice. Perhaps fancy city restaurants have the luxury to call all the shots, however, as a guest, whether I show up on the phone or in my travel togs, I’d prefer a dash of empathy to a lecture. And I’ll take good food over a less than perfect start. I’d go back, but to become a regular, they would have to up the empathy quotient.
