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.

There was a two hour time limit for dinner. By the time you have a bottle of wine, and appetizer, and dinner...there was no time for dessert. The waiter continuously rushed us. It was not a pleasant experience.

The restaurant was relaxed but elegant. We definitely would return to try more dishes. Definitely start with a cocktail - the black Manhattan hit the spot. The lobster bisque was fabulous and the stuffed veal shank was delicious. The branzino was flavorful. We were so full, we couldn't do dessert. Service was well-timed and friendly, and there were affordable wines choices. Recommend being seated away from the bar, since it appears that locals enjoy meeting friends at this location, even during the COVID environment.

We had a fantastic experience on a very cold, icy night. Our waiter was outstanding -helpful, there when you needed him and a very pleasant style. The Osso bucco was perfect, the burrata appetizer with prosciutto on the side was delicious, and the Chilean sea bass was great. We found a new wine that we loved, and it accompanied the meals perfectly. I highly recommend Osteria 177.

Service was outstanding. My wife's dinner was excellent. My dinner was average (Filet) Overcooked. I ate the steak without complaint, but would not recommend. Server indicated steak was better than Lewnes, which is our favorite Steakhouse.

This is a favorite place for us. Service is great and food outstanding. My husband had the Osso Buco Veal shank and I tried the Venison tenderloin with berry sauce dish. Both were delicious. They have a nice selection of appetizers as well. The Caprese Di Mozzarella di Bufala with roasted peppers and prosciutto is my favorite. They also had a full bar and a nice Italian wine selection.
This is a great place to eat in town!

As a very frequent diner we were completely disappointed. We went for my daughters birthday. The waiter towered of us as he continuously rushed us to order (throughout the night). He came every 2-3 minutes to ask have we decided on drinks. We finally choose our drinks. Before he brought our drinks he asked about appetizers, went right into the “dinner” specials. The antipasto was sad-meat had a slimy feel (it was old) 2 pickled onions, 2 squares of cheese. For four people. The octopus (calamari) was so chewy it was not edible. As we tried to enjoy the waiter would hover. Was the worst experience I have ever had there. Not to mention there were only 6 tables w/guests. Don’t understand the rush.

Osteria 177 will make you feel as though you are back in the Old World. The best authentic Italian food not only in Annapolis, but the mid-Atlantic as well. Service is top-notch and the pride shows through from the owner, Arturo, down to the bus staff. Waiters and waitresses are classically trained, friendly, engaging and unpretentious. All posses an in depth knowledge of the menu selections; from food sourcing, preparation, flavor description and pairings. Great gem in a great little city and well worth the drive to experience dining the way it should be. Don't miss it and be sure to reserve ahead of time as walk-in dining is seldom available.

Osteria was hands down, the best meal/dining experience we've ever had. The service was outstanding (the water refills kept coming) and we were given excellent recommendations from our waiter. We had the grilled calamari, then caramelized sea bass & lobster ravioli - all house favorites. It was exquisite. For dessert, we had panna cotta. The atmosphere was perfect and romantic. We couldn't recommend Osteria enough.

Birthday dinner for my wife was exceptional. Staff was friendly and very professional. Food was outstanding and the ambiance was great. Very quiet due to COVID-19 capacity restrictions so we had a romantic dinner with attentive staff making us feel special. Highly recommend this fine restaurant!

As usual the food and service was fantastic. We went in thinking this would be the last time we would dine at Osteria for a while as our politicians decided to close restaurants down for a month. Thank goodness a wise judge slapped that decision down realizing that restaurants are not a spread point for COVID compared to other venues. I hate to get political, but to take a persons livelihood away while that politician still gets paid is terrible.

The tables were spaciously separated inside leaving diners relaxed about dining out. As usual, the Rack of Lamb did not disappoint; perfectly seared while maintaining the medium rare interior. My wife had the Filler Mignon served to perfection. The Lobster Ravioli w/Shrimp and Lump Meat Crab sent my eyes rolling back in my head. An absolutely wonderful dinner, and the staff here is A+.

We love coming to Osteria. The food is always so good and Chris always takes great care of us. The stuffed Veal chop is a favorite. We decided to order a few of those veal chops and unfortunately this time, they were a bit fatty. More like ribeyes. It is what it is, can’t control that. The meal was still delicious. I just prefer a leaner chop.

The real issue I have, is we came for dessert. Someone decided to take the dark chocolate mousse off the menu.... The milk chocolate mousse was an okay...... substitution. But I’d highly recommend bringing the previous recipe back. We’ve been eating that for a cpl years now and loved that dessert. I’ll have to call ahead from now on to make sure it’s available before coming next time. 😉

Great meal and even better service. Love the oysters as well. Until next time.
