A word from Osteria Stellina
Located in the picturesque West Marin town of Point Reyes Station, Osteria Stellina offers a delicious, intimate, farm-to-table dining experience. Known for our local and seasonal cuisine, we strive to showcase the bounty of West Marin on every plate. Our ingredients are sourced from the surrounding regions many farmers, ranchers, and fisherman; each dish reads like a sophisticated blue plate special, comprised of what's close and plentiful on a given day. The result is a creative, clean, farm fresh menu we like to call "Point Reyes Italian". Osteria Stellina's daily lunch and dinner menus include house made pastas and bread, organic salads and soups, pizzas, sustainable meats and seafood, an array of satisfying desserts, and a carefully edited and affordable wine list featuring local vineyards and Italian favorites. Local beer is on tap and additional beers are available by the bottle. The restaurant's gracious dining room is ideal for diners of all ages and any occasion.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Great food, nice room, good service, but a little too much noise. Could/should think a bit about acoustics. A bit hard to hear the conversation across the table. Use to loud rooms where you get use to it. But I kept noticing the sound level over and over again. That's unusual for me..."

  • "It was a Friday evening; the menu looked promising. The fish dish I had seemed overly fatty and not very fresh surprisingly. The flatbread pizza that my partner had was pretty good. The salad was excellent."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "The only disappointing part to our experience was when my daughter explained she is GF (celiac), the waiter responded "we have many dairy free dishes or we can modify". She did have a gluten reaction even with our effort of communicating to the Waiter and carefully ordering. It is surprising how many people in the food business and especially a restaurant like Osteria Stellina, that someone does not understand what GF means."

  • "I expected to be overwhelmed by the great food and I thought that it was okay."

  • "You cannot find fault in their food and wine- top notch, even by California standards. However, the noise level was so high a decent conversation could not be had, so if you have little to say, this place is perfect. Alas, so many other things were below average: - Even though we had reservations (made a month earlier), it was almost 30 minutes before we were seated. - We sat at our table for 15 minutes before anyone came by, in the form of our waitress, who we were to catch a fleeting glimpse of the entire night. She took our order (which she did not do accurately), didn't bother with telling us the specials, and did not return until she came to take our dessert order (other employees were in charge of dropping off our dishes, etc.)"

  • "Everything was wonderful, and the service was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The vegetables and pizzas were especially delicious. We were in town for two nights and liked Stellina so much the first night that we went back the second night."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "We've eaten here several times, & as always, were not disappointed. Love the incorporation of fresh, seasonal, local produce wherever possible. The braised goat on polenta & greens is a hearty & delicious standby. Enjoyed the pizza with fresh oysters & creamed leeks. The grilled swordfish was a bit bland on its own, but the citrus & fennel salad accompaniment was fresh & zesty - could have used a larger serving of this. Thanks for making our birthday celebration special with a dessert treat for the birthday boy."

  • "Osteria Stellina came highly recommended and I hope Saturday, March 8, 2014, was just an "off" night. The noise level was such that we could hardly hear each other across the table, although everyone in Stellinas seemed to be enjoying themselves. The bread and olive oil were tasteless which was not a good introduction as our first tastes of the evening. It got better with the turnip puree soup and the Mozerella cheese and balsamic dressing which were flavorful and good. The rib-eye steak dinner, risotto and goat had a nice flavor, but the goat was stringy and tough. We decided to leave instead of trying any of the desserts."

  • "Believe it or not I got this recommendation from Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop newsletter. Glad we stopped in. This is a terrific place. Pizza was really, really good! And we had an apple parsnip soup which was incredible."

  • "Do I eat in restaurants who prepare the type of food we eat and prepare every day? You bet! From the greeting to the dessert, my family was treated to a rustic feast. Though not extensive, the courses offered were well prepared, balanced and very tasty. Service was well paced, friendly, and attentive. I grow, fish, hunt, forage, cure and can foods. I believe simple preparation, seasonal foods, and allowing the ingredients to shine is the hallmark of a good chef and staff. Stellina hits the mark. Highly recommended for diners who love rustic Italian/Californian cuisine."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "It was our second time there. Everything there is locally sourced and organic. I had the mussels both times, never had better. I guess being in Point Reyes means having access to a lot of high quality ingredients every day--and they know what they're doing. I wouldn't describe the menu as "adventurous" or "innovative", just highly competent execution of dishes from the best ingredients. If you're ordering wine by the glass, don't turn your nose up at the "house red" or "house white". In some places "house wines" are mediocre, inexpensive wines for people who aren't really into wine enough to care. Stellina's house wines are pretty solid selections. I think they just find good, versatile wines by the barrel and put them on tap."

  • "We had looked forward to trying this restaurant for a long time. In the event, it disappointed. We ordered oysters to start, but the waiter forgot about them and brought them later, after delivering the main dishes. The oysters were excellent. The main dishes came about one minute after ordering -- pasta had been microwaved, tuna salad was dry. The hostess and waiter were not particularly welcoming or friendly -- or apologetic about anything. Wie will probably not return."

  • "As always, the food and service at Stellina were wonderful. There were four of us, and we all had different things, and we were all very pleased with our selections."

  • "It was some kind of drive to get to Point Reyes. We had a 5:30 reservation but didn't get there until 6 pm. We were told the reservation was not held after 15 minutes but they worked to get us in. We waited another 35 minutes and then we're seated. The menu was prix fixe and turned out to be very good from top to bottom. The caviar topped oyster starter was good followed by golden beet soup. Then the main course of top sirloin with bernaise and roasted potatoes was served and it was very good even though I'm not big on sauces on my meat. The meal ended up with a Nutella chocolate cake and homemade vanilla ice cream. In a place where oyster farms are all along the waterway, this was a quaint little stop and will stop here again."

  • "My wife and I had the prix fixe Valentine's Day dinner. The portions were very adequate and the wine pairing included some excellent wines. I thought that the menu was well thought out and everything was delicious."

  • "The four of us greatly enjoyed our lunch food…but we (and others at other tables) were greatly disturbed by the loud noise from five women at a nearby table."

  • "Lovely restaurant that uses local food as much as possible. The parsnip, apple soup was different, but good.. My grilled cheese on sourdough with a side green salad was fresh and tasty and it is something I would order again."

  • "We had a delicious lunch and everyone enjoyed salads, soup, and the rest of the seasonal fresh and well prepared meals dessert great too"

  • "Food and service are always great. Menu is creative. Salads a special treat."
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "This was a destination spot for me as there have been numerous glowing reviews in the Bay Area publications. I was prepared to order something from the Italian themed menu. Our water recommended the special which was salad, chile verde with homemade tortillas and a glass of wine. It was great! We will be back!"
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "Very nice spot in the now happening food scene in west Marin County. Great service, wine list and food but were disappointed with one of the entrees."

  • "There were so many delicious things on the menu that everyone in our party of 8 ordered a different dish. Every person loved their meal. The goat and polenta was absolutely fantastic. The bites I had of the osso buco and the duck were off the charts. Our waiter was extremely helpful with wine choices and brought a few tastes to try before making a descion. Aside from the food I really appreciated the sound quality in the restaurant. Although we were at a long rectangular table and everyone was able to hear each other and participate in conversation, a rare pleasure!"
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "Osteria Stellina is still the best dining in Pt Reyes. All the dishes we have tried have been very good, and often excellent. Portions are large - few people could eat an appetizer and an entree and a dessert. Wine is ok, service is not as polished as the cooking, but friendly. Restaurant is divided into two areas: half feels like a nice pizza parlor, other half is a very pleasant dining area with some elegance, but still somewhat informal. Noise is only moderate - never had a problem with having a conversation here."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "One of our favorite get away places, pt reyes, we often stay in close to the fire. But this restaurant is worth dragging yourself away. Delicious food and a good wine selection we had a lovely evening. It is a bit noisy but it don't take away from our evening"
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "Our experience here was good. It was busy and there were some small glitches with the service, but overall, a very pleasant experience. The pizza is delicious. The pasta dish was simple, yet tasty."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "We're big fans of Stellina; the food is always great and the people are very pleasant. But New Year's Eve 2013 was the best ever! I wasn't expecting the 6-course prix fix, because I booked earlier in December. (They did call in advance to let us know and I missed the call.) Each course was better than the prior one; salad, turnip/celeriac soup, ravioli w/ quail egg, seared scallop (killer!), duck leg w/ winter vegetables, light chocolate torte. All VERY local (who knew there's a water buffalo in Valley Ford -- for the burata??) Each course was a tantalizing amount, and cooked perfectly! We passed on the wine pairings, but the neighboring table was very enthusiastic. And the 2008 Stubbs pinot noir (one of the pairings) was most delicious."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We haven't been back to the Bay Area in a year and a half, but since Marin was part of our plan this time, Osteria Stellina had to be too. Our second great meal at this place. It was a cool night, perfect for some California Pinot (great selection by the glass) and a warming veal ragu bolognese - delicious!"
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "The service was rushed and mechanical, as if we were on a factory line. Salad wilted. I ordered rare tuna and got it well done, dry and tasteless,"
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "We had dinner early after spending a glorious warm, clear, sunny December day at Limantour Beach. It's very special to be able to enjoy such grand nature and within a short distance enjoy a meal one would expect to find only in a big city. Good selection of healthy, local, well prepared food. The bittersweet chocolate cake was divine!"

  • "Among attractive decor and amazing art, the four of us enjoyed a great meal. Everything was fresh and perfectly warmed, attractively served."

  • "Love this restaurant. It feels homey, caring, festive with generous servings to boot. We had a nice dinner on XMAS eve. I usually love everything. This time I found the oysters perfect. The salad tasty. Unfortunately, the locally-raised goat was a bit dry. The cioppino had wonderful fresh swordfish and crab. The flavors melded together well although the base for the broth was a bit overpowering for the fish. It wouldn't be something that I would slurp up but rather dip in occasionally. I think that the pressure of so many holiday reservations maybe impacted the usually bright and brilliant food. Will still go back even though our meal was not perfect this time."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Unfortunately seems to have gone downhill. Crudo was under-dressed and under-seasoned. Cheese plate tasted off. Ravioli was excellent. Brussels were good. Pork osso bucco was flavorless. Duck was OK. Orchiette pretty good.Service was anemic and unknowing. Bill had errors. Disappointing overall."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "we found the restaurant underheated. The waiter brought us a space heater and that helped. He didn't tell us that the special on the menu, squid ink ravioli, was pretty small for an entree though he did say it was 2 large raviolis. I think there should have been more discussion both on our part and on his. He was a lovely waiter all the same."
    Dined on 12/8/2013
  • "We ate at Stellina once a few years ago and I thought it was incredibly good. This time it was quite good but didn't quite live up to my memory of it. The room was very noisy and clattery. We had citrus marinated olives, a mixed green salad with radishes and red wine vinaigrette, a penne pasta dish, and salmon over lentils with cauliflower, and a sandwich of chocolate chip cookies and vanilla ice cream. Everything was delicious with fresh and lovely ingredients and beautifully prepared but I found a slight fault with most things...salad a little too sour, pasta a little too salty, cookies too crisp for sandwich and overly sweet. Still, overall a fine dining experience."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "The food was fresh, well prepared, well presented & delicious. Italian & local wines were featured as well as two local beers available on tap. We were happy to find authentic Italian cuisine & hospitality in Western Marin."
    Dined on 11/24/2013
  • "Much more casual than expected, kind of sloppy and unkempt. Dressing on gem salad was really strong/tangy, I couldn't eat it. My pasta (orecchiette with broccolini) was sitting in a pool of pasta water, the broccolini was rough, the sausage was flavorless. My husband had the brisket, more flavor there, reminded me of a beef stew. The broccolini on his plate was rough too. It didn't strike me as a farm-to-table restaurant with pride in their food, as it was advertised. I also heard the hostess turn down several large groups of diners at 8:15pm (restaurant is open until 9pm) "we've run out of many dishes" but then offered to-go food instead. It felt like the staff was just ready to go for the night. We wouldn't go back here."
