Established in 2004 in The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, Trattoria Stella is an award-winning Italian restaurant with an emphasis on authenticity and service. Our seating is limited due to COVID-related restrictions, so we are reservation only for the foreseeable future. We have a frequently changing menu featuring house made charcuterie, pasta, burrata, gelato, desserts and more. Our cocktail program is extensive. Our wine list is loaded with hand-selected items primarily from our three favorite peninsulas (Italy, Old Mission and Leelanau) with a sprinkling of favorites from elsewhere in the world.

Our waiter, David, provided excellent service, as well as describing the philosophy of Stella-fresh sourced local ingredients without waste. He was passionate about their mission. The homemade ravioli with fresh morels & fresh asparagus was amazing. My husband ordered the salmon over risotto & primavera veggies-another winner. We ordered tiramisu & took it back to our condo for later (it was the best!). Can’t wait to go back!

Great cocktails, wine, starters, and mains, and the service is some of the best in Michigan. Everyone has such a great energy in there, you get the sense they really like what they do. It would be hard for us to come to Traverse City and not stop in for a meal. Bonus for us: they do N/A cocktails like no-one else.

No seafood entree but one of the two fish options (shrimp/scallops was once on there from reviews) or steak (except a raw one - which I don’t eat). Many people don’t eat duck/lamb and tire of chicken. Plus, we didn’t receive more than a glass of water when I noticed other tables were given the pitcher. One was finally brought after 10 minutes when we put our empty glasses on the side. Also, everyone around us got bread - we never did. Maybe I’m being too picky (because everyone was nice)- it was very good but not worth the $144 spent.

I liked that a tasting menu was possible as I wanted smaller portions. The salad options are creative and enjoyable, especially the Arugula salad. I will have to try one of the menu items the next time I'm in the area.

The U.S. has tons of good reasonably priced oaked chardonnays and one or two should be staples on the menu.

Everyone was friendly and professional and the food was some of the best I’ve had. The rainbow carrots were beautiful and almost tasted like a dessert as they were so flavorful. The Scottish Salmon had such an interesting mix of flavors and 2 sauces and was also visually pleasing. Such a treat!

The pasta cooked perfectly but bolognese (usually a favorite because of warmth and robust flavors) was blah - like plain ground beef on noodles. Disappointed. Ravioli was better but at basically ten bucks a packet, we expected to be wowed. Ordered a Martini which came in a rounded champagne /cordial type glass which to me, a Martini requires its own glass so this was odd. -and It wasn’t chilled nearly enough. Wasn’t filled to the rim. What?! On the upside the wine list was good, the staff attentive, and Tiramisu saved the evening. That was perfection. We walked away thinking, “what’s all the rave?”
