“Fine food; fine service”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We called for a reservation just a day or two before arrival, and couldn't get a table except for 5pm or after 9pm. We took the 5:00 pm reservation, and remained at our table for about two and a half hours of dining pleasure.

Our waiter (August) was exceptional. Familiar with every aspect of the menu and skilled in wine pairings made the experience especially memorable.

We were not looking for a large dinner, and so we shared three courses. Still left the restaurant with leftovers sufficient for another lunch for two.

So many fine and interesting choices beautifully prepared. However, most of the pasta most of the time is not made in house. Our appetizer, first, and second plates were as near perfect as one could ask.

The atmosphere is informal and diners seem to enjoy being in this place. We did, and we look forward to a return.

“Creative, Classic, Outstanding!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

This is probably the best Italian I have ever eaten. Fresh, outside the box creative & über local for produce and meat. The heirloom tomato caprese salad was wonderful. Veal Shank Osso Bucco is melt in your mouth tender. We make a reservation here every time we are in Sheboygan!

“One of the best italian restaurants in the US”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We eat here whenever we stay at the American Club in Kohler and have never been disappointed. I've dined at many of the top-rated Italian restaurants in the US (Felidia and A Voce in NY, Spiaggia in Chicago) and this equals or surpasses most of them. The menu is fabulous and the ingredients are truly farm fresh- in fact the quality of the ingredients puts most other "farm to table" restaurants to shame. The salads are and pastas are fabulous. Their bread is phenomenal. The prices are a fraction of big name Italian restaurants in major cities. What else do you need?

“Stupendo”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Excellent Italian.. Great food and service... Bravo Stefano... Loved the burrata and the cernia.. Wine list very solid too if a bit on the pricey side.

“Really good for Sheboygan but not great”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Fancy and upscale, Trattoria Stefano had a clubby feel where all the servers knew many of the guests. The food was very good but not great. If in Sheboygan, definitely go.
