Stefanutto trained at the Queensland Academy of Sport before playing for the Brisbane Strikers in the defunct National Soccer League from 1998–2004, before transferring Lillestrøm in Norway. On 26 August 2007, Stefanutto scored his first goal for LSK in his 112th match, against Aalesund. The goal came from a long-range free kick. His contract with Lillestrøm expired at the end of the 2007 season, and he played for Lyn Oslo in the 2008 season, before signing for North Queensland Fury on 5 August 2009.
He sustained a potentially season-ending knee injury in a match against Perth Glory after an innocuous challenge with Adriano Pellegrino, which was presumed to be a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament. The injury hindered his World Cup 2010 selection hopes. On 13 April 2010, Stefanutto signed a contract with the Brisbane Roar, which would see him play there for the next three seasons.
On 2 November 2006 he received his first call-up to the Australian national team for an international friendly against Ghana, in London but did not play. On 24 March 2007 Stefanutto won his first international cap in a friendly match against China. He remained out of the team for more than two years before receiving a recall in Australia's final qualification match for the 2010 World Cup against Japan in June 2009.
Stefanutto is also an Italian citizen, and his family originates from the town of Latisana, near the city of Udine, in the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia. He is married to Tammy Woolf and they have two children.
