We so enjoyed eating here last October that when we knew we would be back in town the first thing we did was reserve a table. Once again, the food was delicious and the service great. My sea bass and our appetizer of grilled calamari...were unusually good, but this time we had a couple of issues. The first was being told we had to buy water and that tap water wasn’t an option. The second and bigger issue was when we asked for a two top in the window, we were told it had been requested so we couldn’t sit there. Having been in the restaurant business myself, I said to the host that we would be gone in one hour - by 7 pm. Did they need the table before then. The answer was yes, so we let it go. We left promptly at 7, as promised, and the table never was seated. We will be back anyway since we think it’s the best food in town but it was annoying. It wasn’t as if the host had said they could seat only 50% capacity due to Covid. That we would have understood. And we were seated at a 4 top and we had requested a 2 top....More

Went here for my daughter's birthday weekend. We started of with the Caprese di Mozzarella di Buffalo which was fantastic. I had the Cannelloni di Carne al Forno (Cannelloni stuffed with veal) and it was also very good. My daughter got the Linguini alle Vongole...or Linguini and clams, which she also loved. Her boyfriend got the Tortellini di Vitello con Burro e Salvia or Tortellini with veal and sage, which he also liked. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Yes, they are following the COVID restrictions with social distancing and face masks. I would highly recommend you have a reservation since it is a fairly small restaurant in the heart of the downtown area.More

Thank you for an excellent meal. Due to covid we are limited in our travel choices, so we stayed close to home. OSTERIA 117 was a very pleasant positive surprise. Thank you for an excellent meal! Grazie mille! We will be back!

Valentine’s menu too expensive for the quality of food appetizers was good but main courses very plain with very ordinary blend vegetables and tasteless potatoes preparations the dessert was ok but nothing extraordinary for this day you expected better service was just ok not extra...attention to details.More

We wouldn’t have an accurate guess as to how many times we’ve enjoyed meals and libations here at Osteria. For 16 years runnin’ they’ve consistently served the very best food that’s to be had in and around Annapolis. Covid compliant and Customer Service at its...best. The Sea Bass, oysters and specialty pasta dish were our favorites this night and as ever was absolutely scrumptious. A bit on the pricey side but certainly worth the price of admission.More

Absolutely delicious seafood with exceptionally good service. Sat outside and had amazing sea food soup and my husband had branzino. Now up there with Flamant as one of my top 3 Annapolis restaurants!

Had a wonderful meal at Osteria 177. The restaurant is lovely and the food out of site. Great selection and everything we had was delicious. Had Burata with tomatoes and roasted pepper and olives and the best marinated onion ever for an appetizer. Just had...a great, great time. Our server was very personable and we had a pleasant conversation with him. Can’t wait to return.More

The staff were very friendly and very knowledgeable of the menu and how the food was prepared and explained it well. We had 10 people in our group and everyone raved about the food and presentation.

Just had the best tortellini in the creamiest sauce ever! Loved the menu...good choices across the board. Spaghetti & meatballs were excellent too as were the choice of salads. Cannot imagine anyone disappointed with this restaurant! We will definitely go back!

I suspect they do because one of our party required a gluten free meal. Maybe you can google Osteria 177 and look at their menu online as I did.
