About the restaurant


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.

You simply cannot go wrong with this menu. In fact, I often tend towards their weekly specials, knowing the gems on the regular menu will be there “next time.” This is my hands-down favorite restaurant. The quality and sourcing of their ingredients is the start, the chefs are masterful and the service is top notch.

Our server was Lateefa. She was very attentive, personable, and helpful. Lateefa didn’t hover over us but was still present. Lateens was awesome! Food was delicious and was an attractive price (my wife got the $55 combo and I got the $65 combo). Overall, a great place to celebrate our anniversary!
