The creativity of the food, extensive Italian wines, extremely knowledgeable waiters & very pleasant/earthy decor made this an enjoyable first experience!

We had seen a PBS show, "Wisconsin Foodie," that featured Trattoria Stefano in Sheboygan and as we were spending the weekend at The American Club, nearby in Kohler, we decided to have dinner at Trattoria Stefano. It was the best decision we could have made. Though we had to wait about 10-15 minutes, despite having a reservation (hello, this is Sheboygan, not New York City or Beverly Hills...) the wait was worth it, as the food and service were exceptional. Our server could not have been more knowledgable, polished, yet warm and suggested dishes and wines that turned out to be sheer perfection. Other than Italy, New York City or San Francisco, I have rarely had this quality of food (amazingly fresh ingredients, simply and perfectly prepared!) and flawless service. From the appropriately cold plates for the salad, or the hot plates for the hot food, to the first-class Reidel crystal wine glasses, to the home-made and superb bread, Trattoria Stefano is a winner. Do NOT miss having dinner there if you're in the area!

We didn't have much time to eat so we just grabbed a quick app and it was delicious! The bread, the pizza, and the bruschetta was amazing!

Amazing atmosphere and unique. Chef travels Italy yearly for new ideas. Menu creative and food was amazing. We had a ribeye with gorgonzola and figs in a red wine sauce. Everything was very nice and my husband from Paris loved the food!

On a golf trip to Whistling Straits- We stayed at the beautiful American Club in Kohler, just next to Sheboygan. After two nights of dining at restaurants featuring fried cheese curds and other frighteningly greasy disgusting options, we were dying to find a place with "real food." The concierge recommended Stefano's and we were not disappointed. Food stands up to any at your favorite bistro or trattoria in any major American city. Now we all understand why everyone is so huge in the midwest- everything is cheese-stuffed, beer-battered and deep fried. Really amazing. At one restaurant we were offered the special (and I kid you not) ".....with a blueberry, cheese and beer reduction". WTF?
