Amazing as always!!!! Never had even an average meal, it’s always outstanding!
The food was excellent , the service was excellent and there was good social distancing
Outstanding as usual! Prices went up slightly to pay staff an honest salary during the pandemic, which is admirable and awesome. Our waitstaff was so excellent we left additional tip. Never disappointed.
An amazing experience even with the Covid-19 precautions! The food, the service, everything was as impressive and wonderful as always!!
We had an outstanding dinner at Trattoria Stella!! The waitress, food and ambiance were outstanding!! We can’t wait to dine at Trattoria Stella again!!
This was my first time here and I was thoroughly impressed! The food was delicious and Craig, our server, was exceptional
The food and service was outstanding.
The only issue we had was we ordered a very high end cheese plate that was wonderful but when we asked for it to be boxed we got home and there was no cheese. Might have been an honest mistake I don’t know. Otherwise this place is was fantastic!!!
Amazing and delicious. Our family decided this was among the top meals out EVER! Homemade pasta, fresh creative dishes, top notch service. We ordered and ate family style so we could try more dishes. Highly recommend. This is a must for a Traverse City visit.
Ambience was very unique and distinguished. Food was outstanding! Will definitely return.
Loved this restaurant. We almost didn’t go but decided to keep the reservation and are so happy we did. This place is one of a kind. Located in an old inane asylum makes it extra fun but I the food is really the star here - so good. Go for the burrata and flank steak were to die for. The tiramisu was underwhelming as was the chicken dish but the others and the homemade bread more than made up for it!! Will totally go back.
One of the best meals I've had, and at a fascinating/historic location.
Stella should be applauded for adoption of the Italian "no tip", everything included system! Food was very consistent and delicious.
Food was outstanding! Service was great! ambiance delightful! Enjoyed our dinner!
Nice place, food is decent but felt it was over priced.
Amazing as always
Great dining experience ! My husband and I are big foodies. We were with a dear friend who is a retired executive chef. At first we were a little leery because the menu is so limited but what they do have they do expedite exceptionally well! Whatever you order you will find delicious.
Great food, great cocktails and awesome music selection.
I have dined at Trattoria Stella a few times, and my most recent experience was a bit of a miss. Perhaps it was an off night, but I was bummed as I talked the restaurant up to the party I was with. Everything was pretty good leading up to the entrees. The entrees were both a huge miss for me. Service was decent - our waitress seemed extremely overwhelmed while servicing three tables during the dinner hour. Just a very “meh” experience this time around! I love the history of the building and I believe the food is usually better than it was this time, so I’ll give it another chance. I think the cocktail menu could also be revamped! Xo
Outstanding all around. A great special occasion place. Food and service were outstanding, despite challenges inherent to re-opening.
Very cozy and attentive service. Delicious food and perfectly designed for social distancing. Pandora music playing what I grew up on......
Outstanding food. Sea bass and scallops were done to perfection. Heirloom tomato appetizer with homemade mozzarella was great. Dessert was just ok.
Awesome! Had the fresh mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes which were so flavorful and fettuccine. Every thing was amazing including the service. We come here every TC visit
Ideal cap to a perfect week in Traverse City. Already looking forward to our next visit.
New to Traverse City, this was a great dining experience
We shared a wonderful meal with friends on Friday night! Everything was amazing from start to finish.
Amazing food amazing service. Reminded me of a big city restaurant. Best place in traverse!
