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.

    Fantastic experience. Everyone we encountered was nothing but the very best at their responsibilities. The wine knowledge/selection was first rate. The food exceeded expectations. We will return the next time we are in town.

    You cannot beat the food, service, and atmosphere at this place. From cocktails through desert, everything is simply excellent. Among the highlights are the Osso Bucco and the squid ink pasta with seafood. And, the service is impeccable. Thanks, Mauro!

    I found it strange that for a nice restaurant that charges for water (no tap available) there would be a bar with a tv on, that you could see from your table. Food was good, very big menu.

    My wife, daughter, and I dined at Osteria 177 celebrating my birthday last night. This is our favorite restaurant in the Annapolis area. We arrived right on time for our reservation and waited only about five minutes while the delightful hostess got our table ready for seating. We did have a much less impressive experience with our server than our past visits. The server seemed rushed, was minimally helpful, slow, and less attentive than what you expect for a restaurant of this class. With that said there was another large table sat in the section around the same time as us which dominated attention and time. What can I say about food? As always everything we ordered was phenomenal! We started with the Ostriche Alla Fiorentina baked oysters with pancetta, spinach, parmesan cheese, and a rich Sambuca Moreau sauce. This is an absolutely delicious dish elevated well above what you would get at any other restaurant. Perfecto! We also had a great Caprese which added a fresh complement to the oysters. Each of us ordered pasta dishes for our entree because nobody does pasta better than Osteria 177. My daughter had the Bucatini alla Matriciana, and my wife ordered the Linguine Alle Vongole. Both of them raved about their dishes and were extremely satisfied with their choices. I ordered the Rigatoni alla Norcina con crema di Pecorino and big time splurged by adding the sliced white truffles. All I can say is WOW. This is umami nirvana! I savored every flavorful bite and it made me think this is one of the very best things I ever ate. My wife and I also enjoyed a nice bottle of wine which paired well with our entrees. We love Osteria 177 and will continue to come back for the ambiance, service, and food. Oh yes the food! Our service in the past has been excellent, and although this time our experience was below standards we will overlook that as a statistical outlier and look forward to returning for another terrific dinner.

    Absolutely, and always, outstanding! The food, service, and ambience are perfection. Great wine selections. Try the caramelized sea bass (on wilted escarole) and the Sacchetti (pear and cheese) pasta! You will be amazed.

    I loved the food. The waiter was super nice and explained everything. He also gave good suggestions. I have been there before and I had the panacotta which was superb. But this time was just ok. Something changed. Next time I’ll try something else. But the pastas and the fish were excellent.

    We had planned to order an appetizer for the table but were told the chef doesn’t allow patrons to order that before deciding on the rest of the meal. We found this odd and never ordered that course. Not sure that kind of rigidity is the best way to start a meal experience. Nonetheless our wait staff was excellent and our meal terrific

    Went for a family night out to celebrate a birthday, and the experience was wonderful. Our waiter was well versed on the menu and friendly, as were the other wait staff. We all enjoyed our meals, and the menu was very adaptable for someone like me who has celiac. They even have gf lobster bisque, which I have never seen before. I did not order it,so I can't attest to the taste, but I will make room for it next time. The waiter provided lots of info. about how dishes are made and whether or not they contained gluten. We would definitely return.
