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.

I enjoyed this restaurant. We were seated at our reservation time 8:00 right away, no wait. Rearuarant ia pretty small though. The noise level however was very loud. The food was great as well as the service. The noise level went down around 9:00. If we had it to do over again we would come at 9:00 when it’s quieter.

Really good Caesar salad lemony garlicky. . I got the pear ricotta sacchetti. It was perfectly cooked and the porcini mushrooms added a delicious earthy flavor. Companion couldn’t say enough about the linguine Vongole. Service is serious. The olive oil served with the bread seemed to be very high quality.

If I knew I had ONE meal left, I would choose a bowl of pasta from Osteria as my last meal. BEST pasta I've ever eaten in my life (and I've done my research)!

The food was very good, however our experience was let down by their unimpressive wine list. Normally this isn’t an issue since we bring our own wine most places and pay a corkage fee, but Osteria 177 has a ludicrous corkage fee of $50. This, I suppose, is to force customers into ordering from their underwhelming and overpriced wine list. This certainly takes away from the dinner experience as it left us feeling as if they were way more interested in making money off their liquor license than attempting to complement their food menu with their wines. This is particularly evident by the lack of affordable Italian wines on their menu— a region with myriad affordable, quality wines to choose from. There are plenty of other places in Annapolis with $25 and under corkage fees and great food that we’ll frequent in lieu of this place in the future.

Immediately seated in nice cozy table, congratulated on our anniversary and flawless service from our server. Great special recommendations Pampano and Branzio - both were excellent and paired well with our Prosecco as did the recommended appetizers- calamari and baked oyster special. We felt a little put off by the busser staff who seemed to be rushing to clear and not rushing to fill water or bring bread. Otherwise a wonderful experience !

Just happened to do a quick search on best restaurants in Annapolis and Osteria 177 came up. Really enjoyed our meal. The service was great but the food was DELICIOUS. I eat out quite a bit in DC and around the country. I am looking forward to returning to this place. The Branzino special was fantastic. Great job all around!
