Why did we dine here? – Osteria Stellina is an Italian restaurant Point Reyes Station, just outside beautiful Point Reyes. This tiny town is lucky to have such a high end restaurant. They focus on farm to table dining with lots of local and seasonal ingredients. We’ve read about this restaurant and have passed by many times, but finally dined here.

Insider Tip – Make reservations during the high season.

Cuisine – Italian
Location – Point Reyes Station

Service – Osteria Stellina had decent service from a knowledgable waiter. No worries about refills, good pacing.
Verdict – Osteria Stellina is a no brainer if you are in this neck of the woods. Be sure to hit the Bovine Bakery on the next block for some bear claws.

Osteria Stellina Signature Dishes – Salads, pizza, pasta.

Osteria Stellina’s Menu changes all the time. They have a good selection of starters, pizza, 3 pastas, and several desserts. Good options for vegetarians.

Osteria Stellina Food Picks:

Osteria Stellina Point Reyes Station oysters

Marin miyagi or Drake’s bay oysters house cocktail sauce & champagne mignonette ($15) were fresh from nearby Hog Island. About as fresh as you can get them unless you drive a couple of miles north!

Osteria Stellina Point Reyes Station vegetable soup

Zuppa del Giorno ($7) was a vegetable soup with spinach, mushrooms, carrots. Very pristine with the quality of the ingredients clearly visible.

Osteria Stellina Point Reyes Station beans and greens

“Beans & Greens” -rosemary simmered cannellini beans & braised greens ($9) was another dish recommended by the server. Again, very fresh and pure. A must for vegetarians.

Osteria Stellina Point Reyes Station blood orange salad

Blood orange and fennel salad, arugola, red onions, red wine vinaigrette ($9) was very good with lots of fennel and a light dressing that didn’t overwhelm the salad.

Osteria Stellina Point Reyes Station wild mushroom pizza

Wild mushrooms, green onions, fontina, bell pepper, mozzarella & white truffle oil ($18), Pepperoni addon ($3) was a very nice pizza with great flavors but a slightly soggy middle. Earlier in the day we had Pizzetta 211 pizza in San Francisco, which was stellar. This pizza, while solid, was a step below that.

Osteria Stellina Point Reyes Station Pappardelle bolognese

Pappardelle bolognese & Parmigiano Reggiano ($18) was recommended by the server. These homemade egg nooodles were excellent, with a top-notch long boiled meat sauce.

Osteria Stellina Point Reyes Station brussel sprouts

Sautéed brussel sprouts, garlic, chilies & walnuts ($7) were slighly burnt, but still very fresh and cooked just right.
