Osteria Stellina, Pt. Reyes Station

Didn't find its own thread, started this one. Unfortunately, wish I could tell you we had a great meal here but we didn't.
Our friends from NJ were staying at Nick's Cove, we drove down to pick them up and went to Stellina.

Seated and started to look at the menu. It reads well with a nice array of choices. We started with Warm citrus marinated olives which were fine but “Beans & Greens” -rosemary simmered cannellini beans and braised greens were over cooked and mushy. Our final starter was a pizza, Drake’s Bay Family Farms oysters, braised leeks, parsley and lemon thyme. I love Neapolitan style pizza and respect the middle can be soggy but this entire pizza was wet and mushy, difficult to even get on a plate. The real kicker is that the flavor was surprisingly bland.

Entrees were two pastas, pappardelle with lamb ragu and orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe. Two huge bowls of pasta with virtually no lamb ragu or sausage and broccoli rabe.
Other two entrees were a mediocre tasting salmon and a very good braised lamb with fingerling potatoes.

Decided to skip dessert. The four of us had heard great things about Stellina but our meal was a total disappointment from start to finish.
