My husband and I have been fans of Stefano's for years. After raving about it for so many years, our son requested that we take him there for a special celebration. The hostess was brusk, the waiter was slow, the menu was limited compared to previous selections, the beef was fatty, the service was disjointed. The water girl, and the... More

As an exiled Bostonian, I know a lot of great Italian restaurants and this little gem in Sheboygan WI will stand up to any of them. The chef is remarkable and executes the menu superbly. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and pleasant. If you want to grab a drink at the bar before your meal, leave yourself time because the host... More

You won't be disappointed here even if your Italian. The food here matches the quality you would get while travelling in Italy. Good wine selection.

Stefano's is a very good Italian restaurant in Sheboygan, We were playing golf at Kohler and decided to go to downtown Sheboygan for a different dining experience. A $15 cab ride later, we were treated to a small, quaint, high-quality dining experience. Our waitress described each item on the menu with such detail you would have thought she prepared them...

This is a very unassuming spot located in an older building in downtown Sheboygoan. However, that's where the modesty ends. The staff were very helpful explaining dishes, sizes, ingredients, etc. We settled on some wonderful caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes and then some great bruschetta. Everything was very fresh and had great flavor. For our pasta we had the original... More

Best restaurant in Wisconsin. Fresh ingredients from the local area. Buffalo mozzarella flown in from Italy, professional wait staff and always an excellent meal. I wish it were closer but it is well worth the drive from Milwaukee.

I liked everything about the place. We were warmly greeted upon entry and that continued throughout the meal. Great waiter made the experience even more enjoyable. The two of us enjoyed everything we tried. Nice wine list as well. Have a brat for lunch somewhere and then go enjoy a fine Italian cuisine dinner at this great spot.

This restaurant was recommended both by a friend from Sheboygan and our innkeeper at the Rochester Inn in Sheboygan Falls. It's a short 15 minute drive from the Inn. My wife declared that this us the best Italian restaurant we've visited. I had the veal chop, she had the halibut special. Both were outstanding. The waiter was terrific and helped... More

Some lady in a gym said "don't miss this place" and we are forever grateful. We weren't even that hungry when we were escorted to our table by a front window (ask for it) and settled in with our engaging and knowledgeable, waiter who described himself as one with "an Irish rabbi verve." He steered us well through all the... More
