Consistently the best dining experience in Sheboygan County, Wisconsin. Chef/owner Stefano and wife Whitney have created and exceptional dining experience. Recipes based on both family and frequent trips to homeland Italy, Stefano creates authentic Italian cuisine that is remarkable. His Osso Bucco is to die for. As is his Veal Chop. Not to mention the Pasta Della Nonno (Grandmas) or... More

While visiting Sheboygan, WI for a quick trip, we ate at Stefano's in the charming "downtown" area. The meal was so enjoyable that we were still talking about it the next day! The food, service and ambiance were top-notch. Everything was delicious and beautifully prepared from start to finish. The salads were made from organic gardens nearby, the pizza and... More

We have been dining at Stefano's since they opened in the early 1990's. Stefano and Whitney and their staff are fantastic in both the food they serve and the service they provide. The ingredients are always fresh, the dishes are simple yet tasty. This is the closest you will get to eating in Italy. Great desserts, nice wine selection, and... More

I was given this restaurant to visit by some locals who know the scene. Told me this Italian restaurant is as good as anything in New Jersey or New York. They were correct. Excellent food prepared to perfection. Waiter Reed was right on in his selections. Had a wild boar sausage pasta that was fresh and very tasty. Enjoyed the... More

After a very disappointing meal at Rupps (don't believe the ratings!), my girlfriend and I attempted to salvage our Sheboygan dining experience with dessert at Trattoria Stefano. We had two delicious reds with a cheesecake and a flourless chocolate cake. We ate at the bar and enjoyed the atmosphere. The staff were great and I only wish we'd had a... More

We had a group of 8 ladies and we had a great time enjoyed the variety of dishes we all ordered. Every last one the ladies stated that their meal was great! Some had pasta, a few did the special of day which was Halibet and was awesome. Rustica salad was my favorite. Our waiter was August and he did... More

Went to this upscale restaurant with business associates. The advised to try the Vitello Stefano. This was the most tender 10oz Veal Rib Chop ever. So well prepared, mouth watering! It was served with a Saffrin Risotto that was not overpowering but just nicely spiced and cooked to perfection. The meal was served with cooked spinach and roasted beets. Sounds... More

Fresh, locally grown food, excellent selection and variety, fantastic octopus, great salads, tiramitsu is to die for... August made great food and drink recommendations as he knew all about the great food being offered at this restaurant. If you enjoy high quality, fresh, authentic Italian food, this is certainly the place. Salute
