Italian accented Fine dining
First time trying The Osteria and disappointed is the best I can say. Positives: The food was well prepared, attractively presented and tasted okay - not spectacular. For the prices, I expected better. Our waiter was very attentive until a regular customer came in, at which time it was like we were 2nd class, and ignored. That alone put a damper on the night. Did not bother staying for coffee or dessert, which is something we would normally do. It came down to a regular customer who obviously was spending more money or my husband and I. Too bad for them, they lost a potential good customer. Plenty of other places in Annapolis where the food is good and the people are warm and friendly.
Great food and very very friendly service
Excellent food in a lovely restaurant.
Hum, what can I say..I really wanted to like this restaurant, but it is quite pricey and not ALL that great. We ordered the mixed seafood appetizer for our table and were less than overwhelmed. 3-4 types of seafood were basically thrown on a serving platter and served. Simply not done in an appetizing fashion at all. I wanted the lamb chops, but the restaurant had run out, so I settled for another lamb dish. Those who ordered seafood seemed to enjoy their meals. I just don't think the quality justifies the price. Service was haphazard at best.
Our waiter was very nice but stood over us a lot which made us a little uncomfortable. The food was delicious but a little over priced.
As always at Osteria 177, a delicious, well-presented dinner served well by the wait staff.
I'm Italian and pretty picky with my national cuisine, at Osteria 177 you will surely find very authentic Italian food with a wonderful inventive by the talented chef. This is de facto my favorite Italian restaurant in the DMV area. Highly recommend
Had the sea bass special, priced at $38...server suggested having it on risotto...agreed, presented without the special garnish, was supposed to be with wilted greens, golden raisins and pinenuts...just fish on mushroom risotto, dinged me a $17 upcharge, server did not inform....poor form...
We have dined at this restaurant frequently since moving to Annapolis in 2009. In the past we had enjoyed eating there. We dined there again for dinner on February 14 this year and several changes have occurred since our initial discovery of Osteria 177.
The first thing we noticed is that the prices have increased significantly. This isn't surprising for a successful restaurant but the increases are unfortunately not warranted. I ordered a Cesar salad that was anything but. It had a bland olive oil dressing oil and a smattering of parmesan cheese on it but no Cesar dressing! I couldn't finish it. When I complained to the waiter, who barely had time to revisit our table after serving us, he said he would bring me another as he walked away from us. I told him not to bother. I expected it to be comped but I was charged for the salad though it certainly was inedible.
My wife's branzino was swimming in a creamy sauce that obscured the flavor of this ordinarily wonderful fish. She couldn't finish it. I will say that my Pesce Spada (swordfish sauteed in bread crumbs, parmesan cheese and garlic) was delicious. The serving was relatively small, however, but tasty.
When the bill arrived, I thought I had been transported to Manhattan! We had ordered a bottle of wine ($70) but the bill was $160! We had ordered only the salad I couldn’t eat and two entrees (one of which was not edible) plus the wine. Most of the entrees were quite overpriced, especially considering the size of the servings.
Throughout the time we spent there, the wait staff was too sparse to serve adequately. They always appeared rushed. Our waiter spent minimal time taking our order before he dashed hurriedly away.
This had been a wonderful restaurant and perhaps we caught them on a bad night but I really didn't think the service and the food preparation warranted the prices. We won't return.
The food was amazing! Our server Keith made the best recommendations! We will request him the next time we visit Osteria. We look forward to going back soon.
We went out for an early Valentine’s Day Dinner. The Fresh Pasta was amazing.
Some of the very Best food in Annapolis! Much attention to detail. Great atmosphere right downtown. Highly recommend!
Food was delicious! Service was slow, but luckily we weren’t in a rush
Simply excellent every time. Fantastic food and equally attentive staff.
Loved this restaurant .. only in Annapolis for one night and we wanted an Italian style restaurant and we lived it .. Food was delicious ... will be back again
the service and the food were just outstanding! Everyone's meal was truly delicious and our server was so professional and engaging. Had report with everyone in the group (50+) and my 21 year old daughter! LOVED IT.
As always, the food and service were exceptional. I usually eat seafood but other dishes are great as well. If you like calamari, and I love it, you'll really enjoy their grilled--NOT fried--calamari. I've told the story a few times of how, after a wonderful meal there, I ordered as a dessert another order of their grilled calamari. Calamari lovers will understand. Others, perhaps not so much. But all the dishes I've had were worth coming back for more. And one fish dish (branzino, I think) comes with special attention. The waiter debones it at your table. Very nice ambiance inside, not loud. And just up the street from the waterfront. It's a destination restaurant for my wife and me.
Great night. Sat at the bar and had a fabulous time getting to know others from the area!
Food was delish. However when I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass with shrimp and clams I expected to have more than 1 shrimp and 2 clams. Waiter seemed to rush us. As it was a special occasion, we wished to dine and take our time. Tables are extremely close. I recommend their sister restaurant in Glen Burnie, which was much better.
Overall a great dining experience - delicious! Price for a glass of Champagne is way over-priced. The server was good, but disappointed when I asked him what were the main ingredients in the after dinner drinks which included a list of about 10 cordials/ liqueurs and he only knew about 2 or three, and nothing about the others; so I asked him to find out and he comes back saying "the rest are all different levels of intensities of herbs" - didn't even attempt to get the information I was looking for which was WHICH specific herbs comprise each one.
We celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary! My wife had the Sea Bass w/Shrimp and clams and it was excellent. My Rare Tuna was also excellent. We will be back.
This was our second trip to Osteria 177 and both have been exceptionally good.
Best meal I have eaten in years! We took a large party and EVERYONE loved the food, staff and environment. Well done!
The food was truly delicious and beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner for our son's 27th birthday and the service was very good. I did feel like the staff tries to sell you up and the prices are high so be prepared before you go for a luxury-priced meal. For three people with one bottle of wine ($60) and two bottles of water including tip, $275
The food and service were topnotch. It is a little pricey though. If that is not a consideration then we would highly recommend it.
Osteria 177 is one of the best Annapolis has to offer. Our food was delicious, imaginative and well presented. Our waiter was knowledgable, gracious and friendly. The ambience, especially the art, is to my taste. It was expensive, but it was my daughter's birthday and it was worth it.
My husband and I came with our son and daughter in law for an early New Years dinner. Our server and service was just wonderful and the food was amazing. The staff was friendly and efficient. Thank you for a wonderful experience. We are sure to be back.
Wonderful Meal at Osteria 177. Enjoyed the tuna appetizer and not-to-be-missed lasagna.
Osteria 177 has a unique take on lasagna that makes it hearty and delicious. The risotto and scallops entree was perfectly prepared. The hazelnut mousse and salted caramel ice cream was divine. Can't wait to return. Be prepared to be patient as the number of customers can, at times, challenge the wait staff to keep up. Kudos to the truly excellent hostess who worked on Wednesday night. She made us feel welcome.
Osteria177 has been our favorite fine restaurant for 3+ years. The food is always spactacular and the service has always been excellent. We have recommended several friends whom all boast that Osteria177 is now one of their favorites as well.
