Go! The line-up is so worth it.

I've been going to Stella Luna since they opened, and I have never been disappointed. In fact, I've been there 3 times in the last 7 days and tried something new every time. The place can be super busy on a warm summer night, but don't let the length of the line deter you. The staff are very... read more

The Gelato will be some of the best you will ever have. Parking is available on side streets and if your really lucky you will find a spot on Bank. Inside seating available.

This is not my neighbourhood. I have to drive 30' to get there and then look for parking, definitely not a fun thing to do in the Glebe. But their gelato is much better than the Piccolo Grande and Pure Gelato. Personally, I prefer pure flavours, not too many in one ice cream, but when this is the only option... More

It seems like half of Ottawa was looking for an ice cream when we arrived after dinner, but the crowd dissipated quickly. A friendly and a efficient service, excellent chocolate biscotto, pistacchio and maple cream. Reasonable prices for the size served, 3 flavours 7 $

When in Ottawa this is definitely worth the visit even just to experience the gelato. In summer they will have a cart on the corner of Spark and Bank downtown so if easier visit there. The only problem is what flavour of gelato to have -good luck! This place is suitable for everyone to visit

The gelato was nice, good selection. The line up was huge (which typically means it's good) but moved very fast. Prices were reasonable as well. Best part though was the two person band entertaining the guests on a Sunday afternoon!

Large and charming interior, which can get very full in the evenings as soon as warm weather rolls around. They always let you sample a number of flavours before choosing your gelato of choice. A bit pricey, but they aren't stingy in their portion sizes. If you get an espresso beverage, I always appreciate they give a nice little chocolate... More

This is a very comfortable spot. The coffee is great and the gelato the best in Ottawa. I have eaten brunch there before and the paninis are great.

One must always ask one's self where one is supposed to stand at any given time.. the line for the sandwiches, the line for the gelato or the line for the cash: or moving between all three to try to get what it is you want. This process is exhausting: to the point where I stopped going regularly. Now they... More

TammyGiuliani, Owner at Stella Luna, responded to this review

Dear J.L. I’m sorry you found our layout confusing. The line-up begins at the cash. If you’re looking for a bite to eat, then prior to lining up at the cash, patrons are encouraged to drop by the panini display to check out the day’s fresh selection of lunch items or in-house baking. Unlike many fast-food establishments, we don’t have... More
