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.

We loved our experience at Osteria 177! Our waiter was AMAZING!!!! I cannot remember his name - please forgive me! But he stated that he worked there before and just started back! His personality matched the ambiance and make our experience even better. All of the wait staff were amazing and attentive! Food was out of this world! We will definitely be back!

Fantastic food and service! Pretty inside and low noise levels for once which is nice. The only ding I'd have is that they sat the two of us at a table configuration made for 8. It was 2 tables pushed together with booth seating and we were at the one end with another party at the far end. Also, a little pricey but it was amazing!!

There is nothing but wonderful things we can say about Osteria 177. The food is amazing! The entire experience is just the best. We went for my birthday with family and it was perfect. I had the pasta filled with pear, mascarpone (?), in a cream sauce with mushrooms, it was delightful! My husband and sister-in-law had veal sambuca (?) it was tender, and so very good. My brother-in-law had a venison dish that was flavorful, not gamey, and like a fantastic cut of beef, we were all impressed. Our waiter/sommelier, Demetri, really knew his wine! He chose the perfect pinot noir, it was dry and went perfectly with the veal and venison. He has an impressive knowledge of wines, in addition to being incredibly attentive.

Had my friends 50th bday dinner. Prosecco was great and chilled and poured promptly. Got a great window seat! Our server named Chris was knowledgeable and friendly. Food was fabulous! Split caesar salad yum and my candied sweet chilean sea bass was like butter! Friends had tuna and salmon cooked perfectly. To finish. We had the chocolate profiteroles (3 of them) which was perfect! I would go back for sure!! 😊

Service is excellent. Everything you'd expect from a high end restaurant. Very attentive and friendly, but not hovering. Very knowledgeable about the menu. Food was excellent. Good menu selection. If they have the gnocchi special with the pesto sauce & salmon, get it! It was heavenly. Very mild fish taste. The gnocchi melts in your mouth. Rich, but not overly rich sauce. My only disappointment was that they didn't have cannolli as a desert option. But everything we got was delicious and they made our anniversary celebration special. A bit pricey, but in line, if not better quality as other restaurants in the same price range. Will definitely return for special occasions.

We had dinner at this restaurant during our weekend visit to Annapolis. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice to dine here. Coming from NY we have many wonderful Italian restaurants and Osteria 177 was on par if not superior to many of them. The service was superb and the food memorable. It was well worth the visit.

This is a great restaurant in Annapolis. The food is always good. We enjoyed the specials of the evening. Sea Bass was cooked over greens. Delicious ! And the Branzino dish. Can't go wrong with fish dishes. This is an Italian restaurant so try the pasta dishes too. The have a nice wine list of Italian wine and a full bar. They had the best Affogato Yummy!

The ambiance is wonderful. Interesting Italian themed art on the way walls, a black painted industrial ceiling and perfect lighting. The banquets are comfortable with heavy grade while table cloths and silver. Service is extraordinary and the servers are knowledgeable about the items on the menu. Arturo’s menu and specials are very interesting and always a treat. We shared a Caesar salad, with Anchovies that was dressed perfectly, and followed it with chioppino and a filet of branzino topped with crab in a wonderful light sauce. The seafood stew was filled with a generous amount of shellfish a seafood In a very flavorful broth. We finished with a light tiramisu and strong black coffee. Osteria is always terrific.

Excellent waitstaff. Dimitrius was very knowledgeable about food and wine, courteous and prompt. Fish entrees for the three out of the four of our party were outstanding...best we have had in Annapolis! Chicken entree for fourth member was tender and uniquely flavoured. Very comfortable seating. It was a lovely night out for birthday foursome.

The sword fish Livornese was good but the scampi alla Pescarese was one of the best things I've ever tasted and the tiramisu that ended our meal was arguably the all time best version of this classic dessert. Osteria 177 was, and remains, the best restaurant in Annapolis hands down.
