“Best Italian I have ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I have gone to the Piccola Stella Trattoria on multiple occasions while traveling in Batam for business. My mouth is literally watering thinking about the food there. The prices are good and the food is excellent. I recommend the veil, or just ask the Chef what he thinks you would like. We asked for desert and the Chef asked if he could make something special for us. We agreed and he brought out two long platters with some type of ice cream or something, flaming lava cake, and tira miusu. I have never been disappointed with the food or the service and will continue to go back every time I am in Batam.

“ADVISORY!!!! Attention all Bule!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

What a great time we all had at Piccola Stella Trattoria, which Chef Mino has not really officially opened (He will in July 2013.) The service was great, the pasta was great, we had fruit gratis for dessert, but most of all I was surprised by the Capresi salad, which had all of the proportions perfectly done. It seemed like the basil was hidden and ground up - what a flavor explosion! The location is not as splendid as Bella Italia but the payoff to drive over to Batam Center is so worth it. Please go see Chef Mino and you will go home happy with a full belly. Oh yeah, he only uses the freshest ingredients so, if you want the lamb shank call ahead for the next day. He will make ANYTHING you want with a days notice if the ingredients are available!

“Italian Foodies Dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

While looking for the next best thing Batam had to offer me on one of my nightly journeys through it's manic streets, I was fortunate enough to find (hidden behind grapevines no less), Piccola Stella Trattoria.

With a boisterous and friendly "Ciao" from Mino (the owner, chef, host, waiter) my Italian culinary experience in Batam began.

I frequent PST weekly now. The food and staff have not once disappointed me. Staying open an extra 20 min for me one morning (they are open until 2am daily) to pick up a post clubbing take away.

Everything from pizzas to pastas and desserts. To eat in or take away (with delivery to your door anywhere in Batam). And the wine.... I come from South Africa where good wine comes cheap and I miss that here in Batam. Well, not anymore. I usually go there for a Italian Pinot Grigio (only Rp 120 000) and receive complementary garlic bread, a small pizza and a pasta. In other words a complete meal for two with wine. And just to top it off, he then gives you 10% off as well.

This really is not one to miss. I have even arranged my birthday party there next month.

Great inexpensive authentic food! Great authentic hospitality! Great authentic experience!
Italian food like my granny used to make it (had been Italian of course :))!!!

Thanks Mino and crew - a big two thumbs up!
