We had a wonderful time and an wonderful dinner. The food is very good. Chef Myles has created an awesome menu and is a pleasure to talk with. They are doing great things at Trattoria Stella. Please ask for a table in Haley’s section. She was informative and fun.
We will be back!

Birthday dinner with my love. Trattoria surpasses expectations each and every time. This is one of the best restaurants in Michigan.
Unbelievable, we come here every time we come to TC. Wouldn't miss it!
The staff were so very friendly and helpful. The food was the best I have eaten since I cannot remember when. Highly recommend!
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!
Great food, great service, great ambiance! Could not have asked for a better dining experience during these trying times. Trattoria Stella did an amazing job all around!
Our waiter, Dillon was excellent At complementing the meal. He provided an opportunity to taste a few wines to compliment our evening with friends.
Phenomenal Italian food, wonderful service and setting
Trattoria Stella has been our favorite restaurant in TC for several years now. No other restaurant can match it for service, quality, and ambience.
Food is always great, service top notch, menu is always changing and fresh from local farms. If your visiting Traverse City this is the place to dine.
Excellent good with unbelievable service. The level of knowledge that the staff have regarding everything from the menu to wine and cocktails is amazing
This was our second time at Stella’s and we were very pleased with our dining experience. The food was excellent. My meal was a bit salty for my taste but I’m sensitive to salt so I would say that it was probably perfect for others. Kate took care of us during our meal and she did a wonderful job. She checked on us from time to time to make sure we didn’t need anything but did not hover. She had just the right amount of presence. She was knowledgeable about the food and wine offerings and was very helpful in our wine choices for our meals. The vanilla gelato was delicious and the strawberry and blood orange sorbetto was exquisite! I would recommend Stella’s to anyone who wants an exceptional dining experience.
We have been several times before and have always enjoyed our dinner. Unfortunately, this time was a much different experience. The service was slow, our drinks took quite awhile to come to our table, and the food wasn't what we had experienced in the past. Food-wise it was comparable to a chain restaurant, not what Stella's used to be. We won't be back.
Sat at the bar. Loved our location. Burrata cheese starter is delicious. Empanadas are a tasty Italian/Spanish fusion. The fettuccine with duck was creamy and layered with flavor. The bolognese is even better. Cocktails are not to be missed here. You can build your own take on a Negroni. Really enjoyed this restaurant.
