The wait staff was extremely helpful and gave us the space to enjoy our meal. Food was hot and delicious. Completely satisfied with the experience.
Food was good. They were initially going to put my husband and I in a very small space in the walkway, but the hostess moved us before sitting us at that table. Very appreciative.
My meal was just ok. I thought it was boring. My beet salad was good. Not worth the money.
Wonderful food set in a very distinctive setting ( lol look up the History of the building). A little pricey but the food was excellent and service was fast and friendly
Excellent food, great service. A must stop whenever we are in town.
As always, wonderful food and wonderful service. This remains one of our favorite places to dine in Traverse City.
Stella never disappoints. You can order anything on the menu with confidence, or let the chef pick if you can't decide. If you've never tried octopus, or even if you have, theirs is one of the best things on the menu and I promise you'll love it.
This place had amazing food, and even better service. Please get the octopus you won't be disappointed!
Food was not bad, distinctive in comparison to what you would get at a normal Italian restaurant, with good presentation. I found my spaghetti with duck leg to be too salty. While I enjoyed my first few bites, by the end of the meal it was less palatable. My date said her ravioli was just ok. Portions were small. Service was excellent, as you would expect from a restaurant of this quality. Atmosphere was nothing special. It was clean. Pricey, but within the norm for this quality of restaurant. Not disappointed I tried it, but nothing that led me to believe a return visit is warranted.
Service and food was absolutely amazing! All four diners enjoyed their meals, appetizer and drinks!
Food was excellent, loved the ambiance, 5 star service.
Service was outstanding, food and entire dining experience made for a very memorable evening
Wow! This place is so special! Allison (our waitress extraordinare) was like a Jedi Mind reader and recommended the best wine! I would like to go there every single day!!!
Food was excellent and one of the best wine lists at an Italian restaurant we have seen .
Great ambiance. Music was great. Sinatra and Dino. Set a great mood for dinner. Service was great! Very customer focused and wanting to know the good and bad about your dining experience! I had the Chicken Saltimbocca and I highly recommend it! While the piece of chicken could have been bigger, the tastes in the dish were great with two wonderful sauces. It was wonderful. My wife had a steak that was overcooked with a side of pasta that was really underwhelming. The manager was kind enough to take it off the bill without hesitation. They also gave us a desert for our trouble (tiramisu) which was delicious! We will return!
Our first time at Tattoria Stella this past Friday night was amazing. We started with oysters, chose the canneloni and chicken saltimboca for dinner and both were incredible. When our server found out it was my birthday they brought us a complimentary dessert of my choice. We enjoyed our food and drinks and we cannot wait to go back again!
The food and ambience were amazing, and we had possibly the best service either of us have ever had, Alison took exceptional care of us. A truly incredible experience.
Wonderful dinner experience! The food, drinks, and service were all outstanding. Pricing matches food quality. Might be worth taking a peek at their extensive drink list beforehand for those who have a hard time making decisions. I look forward to returning in the future.
Fantastic food and service. Inventive cocktails. Very knowledgeable server. Great atmosphere.
The food was terrific but the wait staff was beyond wonderful. Alison, our waitress was so very knowledgable in everything from the wines to the entire menu. After listening to her superior explainations of the wines, I let her pick. Her choice was beyond good. The food was spectacular and Alison's recommendation of the burratta appetizer was superb
Great dinner - recommend any time
So very special! Definitely will do again!
Our server was phenomenal and was very attentive to us. My husband ordered the scallops and said they were the best he’s ever had. I ordered the steak and it was absolutely delicious. We will be back again soon.
Everything was fantastic- attentive service, excellent & creative food, and unique atmosphere.
My husband and I went here for our anniversary. Meal was great! The waiter recommended a nice bottle of wine. Will definitely be coming back!
Fantastic food, but sat next to server alley and the servers would be on phones or talk about their own business to loud.
New Years Eve
The food was spectacular! The atmosphere is also extremely relaxing and comfortable.
This was the 5th time my wife and I have eaten at Trattoria Stella and while this wasn't the best meal we've ever had there (you can't hit a Grand Slam every time you come to bat) the meal was great and the service impeccable.
We were recommended this restaurant from a couple we met in a hotel elevator. We were looking a unique setting for our 47th wedding anniversary.
What a wonderful setting ! The wine was from one of the local wineries we visited earlier, appetizer was excellent and brought to the table quickly. Entrées were delicious and prepared with flair.
Usually don’t order dessert but split a Tiramisu … well worth it !
Only down side, we were seated between a small children’s party and a table of loud talkers, nonetheless we enjoyed our celebration !
Being in a rehab’d asylum made it awesome !
Always a great meal here, wait staff is knowledgeable about the food and wine.
Stella’s never disappoints!
Wonderful, savory, delicious meal in a cozy and warm atmosphere. Excellent service. Highly recommend.
The food was not close to worth the money. Very disappointed in the quality to price.
