We traveled to Alamogordo to speak and do a book signing. Not knowing the area, we went right to Trip Advisor for suggestions for dinner on Friday night, April 4. This restaurant's reviews sounded too good to be true! Wow! We loved everything about it! The beautiful décor, the friendly- efficient staff and the delicious food! This restaurant is truly... More

The food in this restaurant is the best in town without doubt. You will pay the price for it, with an entree running between $10-20, but you will get fresh fish (flow in daily), excellent wine, fabulous specials and fantastic service.

Spending only one night in alamagordo we didn't want mediocre. Sooo after checking trip advisor we selected Stella VIta. Glad we went. It's located in what was obviously the old downtown. Very tastefully done inside. Nice low lighting. Tables spaced apart. Excellent friendly table service. Wine list with choices across the pricing spectrum. Food was well prepared. Flavorful , clearly... More

Read many reviews on Trip-advisor and was looking forward to a really good meal. When I arrived there were no cars parked out front and I got concerned. I saw lights on so I went in. I was the only customer. It is a very nice place. Quiet, relaxing and kind of elegant. The menu had a good variety and... More

We were on our way from Las Cruces to Ruidoso and decided to have dinner in Alamogordo. We found this place on Tripadvisor. So happy we did! The service, atmosphere, live music, and the food were incredible. Crab Cakes and Chicken Marsala are both amazing. We couldn't have found a more perfect restaurant in all three towns. We can't wait... More

Stella Vita is hands down the best restaurant in Alamogordo. In fact, when you are inside, you feel like you just walk in off the streets of a large, bustling metropolis because it has a big city feel. I have been to Stella Vita about ten times and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is refined, the food is scrumptious,... More

We have reason to go to Alamogordo a bit because my husband is a paragliding pilot. This weekend I decided to use TA to find a good restaurant there, since there aren't many. While the service on this particular night was a little slow and distracted (they were preparing for a large party) they were cognizant of the issue and... More

While I realize this is not a fast food restaurant, this was a special time-involved situation. The food was ordered for a specific time so it could be picked up and eaten at the office but it was not prepared until arrival occured for pick up. Needless to say, it put everything behind schedule. We won't be eating there unless... More
