Description: Located in the picturesque West Marin town of Point Reyes Station, Osteria Stellina offers a delicious, intimate, farm-to-table dining experience. Known for our strictly local and seasonal cuisine, we strive to showcase the bounty of West Marin on every plate. Our ingredients are sourced from the surrounding regions many farmers, ranchers, and fisherman; each dish reads like a sophisticated blue plate special, comprised of what's close and plentiful on a given day. The result is a creative, clean, farm fresh menu we like to call "Point Reyes Italian". Osteria Stellina's daily lunch and dinner menus include house made pastas and bread, organic salads and soups, pizzas, sustainable meats and seafood, an array of satisfying desserts, and a carefully edited and affordable wine list featuring local vineyards and Italian favorites. Local beer is on tap and additional beers are available by the bottle. The restaurant's gracious dining room is ideal for diners of all ages and any occasion.

Reviewed February 25, 2013

Many local farm to table options, and they are creatively, caringly prepared. After a nice salad and nearly local white wine I had braised local goat shoulder (cabrito-like) over polenta paired with a pinot noir. Our friend had a black cod caught just off-shore prepared creatively and our friend said one of the best fish dishes he's had. My wife had oysters from nearby Bodega Bay that were fresh and tasted like the ocean. Everything about this meal was memorable. Recommend staying at least a day around Point Reyes to see the National Seashore and enjoy local cuisine.

“Fine dining at Point Reyes Station”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Stellina has an interesting and varied Italian-based menu with locally sourced ingredients. The chef is creative, the food we've had is very well prepared, service has been great. The lights are low. It can get a bit noisy when busy. Prices are reasonable. It's family friendly, but romantic enough for special occasions. A stand-out for this area.

“Very good”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

My husband and I shared a birthday meal here and really liked it. We chose more expensive entrees, which were good, fresh fish. However, they had a "locals' special" for $20 that included salad, spaghetti with meatballs, glass of wine, and I believe a dessert (their ice-cream is wonderful). So it's a good place to celebrate but also a good place for a pizza and glass of wine.

“Truly a superb restaurant”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Friends in San Francisco advised me to dine here, which i did--twice because it was so good. This restaurant would thrive in San Francisco, it is that good.
