Olema Inn vs. Osteria Stellina...or something else?

Looking for a good special occasion spot in or near Point Reyes Station, and wondering if anyone has recent experience with either of these places, or has any other suggestions. We'll be staying in Point Reyes Station and traveling by bicycle, so we can't go too far afield, but could do anything within 10 miles of there or so. Like the looks of both menus; Osteria Stellina is a bit more our style (but that could be a downside, too, since we eat regularly at Oakland spots with similar types of food, and are going for something that will feel out-of-the-ordinary). Any recommendations?Thanks!

    I haven't been to Olema Inn, but Osteria Stellina is one of my favorite restaurants in the Bay Area. I'd also be curious what restaurants you would consider to have "similar types of food", as the only place I feel is comparable to Osteria Stellina is Delfina, except that at Osteria Stellina, you can order a pizza and an entree.

    The oyster pizza is one of the best dishes I had in 2009.

      Thanks! Leaning towards Osteria Stellina based on the reviews I've read elsewhere, too. Oh, and the spots we like to hit where the menus seemed to have a somewhat similar vibe are Dopo, Pizzaiolo, Boot and Shoe, and Marzano, all in Oakland. That may just be because they all have the nouveau Italian pizza thing going, though! Seems like the Osteria Stellina menu is a bit more extensive/varied, too.

      Good article on Osteria Stellina. Made me want to go. The bounty of local foods available to Christian Caiazzo is striking.

      Check out the interesting menu at
      http://osteriastellina.com/

      "Osteria Stellina puts emphasis on 'local''
      http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article...

      Article says open Wednesday through Monday, but website says, "Monday-Friday 11:30-2:30 lunch / 5-9 dinner. Saturday & Sunday 10-2:30 brunch / 5-9 dinner."

        We decided to give it a try next week, so I'll let you know how it is!

          ate there last summer as my wife and I passed through Pt. Reyes Station. I still remember the goat. It was the highlight of our trip (we are from LA).
