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.

Our waiter Dmitri is a certified Sommelier and in addition to great recommendations for the meal courses, also suggested wine pairings which were excellent. We would definitely recommend this place especially for special occasions.

Simply spectacular meal! The veal ravioli, beef carpaccio, caprese, and gnocchi were all incredible and the service was attentive and professional. The wine list is extensive and our server was able to help us pair wines with entrees perfectly. I highly recommend this spot!

Our dining experience was excellent and among the most enjoyable we've had in some time. The variety of menu options, the flavors of each offering and their presentation made for a most enjoyable evening. We were particularly pleased, once again, to have a gentleman host us, Dimitri, who has always been very, very personable and expert in introducing us to a variety of menu and wine options. His personal investment in the quality of our evening adds immensely to the already great fare at Osteria 177 and is greatly appreciated. We look forward to seeing him again, soon. Thank you.

Excellent dining with personal, friendly staff in an warm inviting ambiance. The waiter was exceptional and recommended fresh fish and a wine that complimented our meal. For dessert I enjoyed a delicious chocolate hazelnut cake and a perfect latte. Great location in downtown Annapolis.

The server knew the menu well enough to make decent recommendations. My husband and I both enjoyed our meals and it was obvious that the restaurant is well run. The food come out in a timely manner and both meals were hot even though our meal choices, as different as they were, could have made that difficult. The staff constantly circled bussing and filling glasses. This was seamless and unobtrusive.

This was our second time here, and we were not as impressed as the first time. The apps were very good, the veggie terrine, arugula salad and something with prosciutto and parmesan that was excellent. 3 of us had pasta entrees, they were very good also. My dad ordered Covino fish, but asked for it to be prepared a different way than the menu. When it came it was not what he ordered but he didn’t want to send it back since it had taken quite awhile for the entrees to come and he didn’t want to have to wait much longer. The waiter offered but he declined . The fish was good, but nothing memorable. It was an expensive dish and I feel the waiter should have offered a discount. Also my husband’s beer had something in the glass. They brought him a new one but should have taken it off the bill. And lastly, my husband ordered chocolate mousse. It cane with a large amount of white chocolate in the center, which if he had know that he wouldn’t have gotten it. He pointed it out to the waiter, who agreed chocolate mousse shouldn’t have white chocolate. Again, he could have sent it back but did not. And again, I feel the waiter should have offered to take it off the bill. My last complaint is that my dad is hard of hearing and I had to translate everything the waiter said. He spoke very quietly, so I think once you see that a diner can’t hear what you’re saying you should try to speak louder. He didn’t need to yell, but he could have taken it up a notch. Overall we enjoyed our meal but would have liked to have better service.

Excellent food. Service overall was great, but I felt really pressured by the waiter to order a drink. He must have asked five times ultimately saying "come on its Saturday". I finally got him off my back by telling him I was pregnant and couldn't drink.

I would have given the food 5 stars, however there were no vegetarian pasta dishes on the menu. The risotto was good, but I was really looking forward to trying one of the vegetarian pasta dishes that I saw when checking out the menu online.

Food was great! Ambiance and interior design leaves something to be desired. It’s Italian matches with contemporary art. Strange. Also they have a chandelier hanging from their aluminum air ducts. Needs a renovation to attract a wider range of crowd. We are in our 30/40s and we’re the youngest couple in there.

Food and service was amazing!

The food was excellent and our server made several great suggestions. Unfortunately he disappeared between clearing dinner and asking for a coffee/dessert order - for about 30 minutes. We were all too tired by then to order dessert. We were seated at a very large table for 8 or 10 and we were a party of six. It was also very cold and drafty near the window.

Osteria 177 is a top tier restaurant in Annapolis. It is pricey bit worth every dollar. We had the special, a pasta with safron sauce, crab, and shrimp. It was perfectly lovely, the flavors are wonderful. You must try the appetizers, their perfect cappuccino, and desserts. Their specials are always unique and we look there first. Dress nice and prepare for a unique and delightful dining experience.

The food is so beautifully presented that you hate to dig in and destroy it but dig in we did. I had seared tuna on a bed of arugula with lightly fried potato batons...the sauce was delicious. I could detect a hint of tarragon. Granddaughter had pasta with a non meat sauce which she said was delicious. My husband had lamb Osso bucco which he claims was just outstanding.
We all had desserts which did not disappoint..spiced panna cotta with berries, creme brûlée and lovely profiteroles.
The only downside is we agreed that it is overpriced.

We had a delightful Friday night dinner. The salmon pastrami appetizer was exceptional, as was the escarole salad my husband had. We each had a pasta dish that were obviously fresh and delicious. All the food showed a great attention to detail. The server was very helpful with the wine choices, even offering a taste before purchasing a bottle, which turned out to be a good idea since it wasn't to our liking, but the second bottle was terrific! All in all a great meal - I would highly recommend this restaurant.
