Enjoyed this restaurant. My waiter Brandon was personable and knowledgable about the menu. The crab cakes were delicious with the Asian salad. Chefs pasta special of shrimp artichokes and feta was ok. Pasta was al dente but very monochromatic white looking. Taste was good. Artichokes were left off by mistake but my waiter had the chef supply them later. Bread... More

What a pleasant surprise. A really class spot in downtown Alamogordo, but casual enough for everyone to enjoy. Everything was perfect. They have done a wonderful job decorating one of the lovely old downtown buildings. It's simple chic - it could be a bistro in Miami Beach or San Francisco. But fortunately, it’s in our little town of Alamogordo. You... More

We had stopped for the night in Alamogordo, read the TA reviews for Stella Vita and decided to gice it a try for a mid-week dinner. We arrived at the address and had to get out of the car and walk around the old shopping area before we actually found the restaurant. The sign is very small and is turned... More

We save Stella Vita for special occasions like a wedding anniversary, birthday, etc.,. We think it's a romantic place to go. It reminds me of the north of Italy. Décor is understated & elegant. I've done lunch there many times, but enjoy the quiet & ambiance in the evening. The food is excellent. The best part is, it's not a... More

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
