“Interesting spot to dine”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

My husband and I were intrigued to hear of a great Italian restaurant in the basement of a former mental hospital...
So, of course we went- and loved it!
The Cowboy Oysters, shrimp pasta and wild boar were excellent. Delicious blue cheese stuffed olives in our dirty martini's!! It was such an interesting place to eat and we would definitely go back for another visit!

“Unique atmosphere, delicious food.”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

My friend Lori took me here on a winery-tour weekend. She made reservations in advance because the place is so popular. The menu was unusual and the food was delicious. Enjoyed walking around to see the unusual setting. It's a very special restaurant - the best we went to in Traverse City. Pretty gourmet for the area!

“Close to my heart”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I will forever love Stellas. It is my all time favorite restaurant in TC. Anyone who says anything different is crazy. My friends from NYC and Toronto come to TC annually and they rave about Stellas every time. They make it a mandatory stop on their trip. We celebrate all special occasions here. Keep up the good work Stellas!!
