First, the fact that you can park right there seems like a minor thing, but for us it makes the trip much more enjoyable! We went looking forward to a great meal and that is what we had. We started with the Fois gras appetizer which was amazing, salads were wonderful and for the entrees, just WOW! My husband had... More

Very nice ambiance for anniversary, very Italian, but the food taste fell short. One doesn't mind paying extra for a special occasion($120 before tip), but one expects special flavor. Wife's dish was tepid at best, my polenta was flavorless. I would recommend the meat sampler appetizer, very tasty.

The atmosphere was amazing and the service was super. The reason for my rating was the food. My entree was not hot when delivered and cold by the time I had consumed a couple bites. Had the veal and I believe I could have cooked it with more flavor. The sauces were ok, but not worth the hype and price.... More

Stopped to eat in Bar area for some appetizers and wine. Pizza and appetizers are tasty and interesting with great wines by glass choices. Have eaten dinner here numerous times and always great, and priced $$$$/$$$$$.

We are locals and eat here as often as possible. You'll never have a bad meal or poor service. It's pricey but totally worth every penny.

We went to celebrate a birthday with15 people with appetizers and cocktails. They were completely prepared for our reservation and made us feel part of the family! The mussels, bread, beef charcuterie, burrata.... well, everything, was out of this world. Their cocktails were truly wonderful. We ended up canceling our dinner reservations at the next place and enjoying our time... More

Came to Traverse city for the weekend for wine tasting and a weekend get away. Came to Trattoria Stella and we couldn't have picked a better place. The restaurant sits inside the old Asylum which adds to the allure and ambiance. The service, atmosphere, and food were top notch. Definitely exceeds our expectations! Thank you!!

This is one of mu favorite restaurants to take clients to for lunch. Nice atmosphere, incredible wait staff and absolutely excellent food. The burrata is wonderful. No one that I have been with has ever had a bad meal. I enjoy the white pizza, the frittata and various other items (menu changes based on in season ingredients). It's a must... More

I ordered the octopus antipasti and scallop entree. They were sinfully delicious! The atmosphere is romantic and the servers are highly knowledgeable.

We stayed at a bed and breakfast and they suggested to eat at Stella's. We didn't know what to expect but Oh My Gosh!! Delicious! We used to live in Chicago, had many fine dining and I must say we were very impressed. Top notched dishes. We didn't expect this type of dishes here in Traverse City. We ordered an... More
