Wonderful Itallian

I spent many years in Arizona and still visit regularly. This is a restaurant that I plan for on every trip. Italian is common and available; La Stella is special. I enjoyed a Veal dish, so rich and flavorable to be nearly too much for one person. I enjoyed every bite though. Dinner started... read more

I was with a group and everyone agreed that the service and food was ok, but not necessarily great. Maybe it was too large of a group for them to handle.

I visit the Phoenix area every year with friends an have found that we can always rely on La Stalla for a great meal and a pleasant experience. They were very accommodating of our group's delayed arrival, and held our table even though the restaurant was full. The food was predictably good and the service was prompt and friendly. The...

Enjoyed the food. Great atmosphere and service. Our party of 6 had not visited for sometime. We had a lot to catch up on. Last one's to leave and never felt rushed. One of the favorites from our local friend.

We decided to lunch at La Stalla just before attending the Glen Miller Orchestra show at the Chandler Center For The Arts last Sunday. We were a party of 6, had a wonderful lunch, and the service was outstanding. After the show, we returned for dessert and received a triple treat. Not only was the chocolate soufflé done to perfection,... More

La Stalla Cucina Rustica is a rare gem in downtown Chandler -- not a town know for their fine dining except for Kai at Wild Horse Pass. The chef prepares all of his own sauces and they are made to order. The lasagna is exceptional. Delicious sauce, perfect combination of beef, sausage, cheese etc. My mouth is watering just thinking... More

I've written about this place more than once before: in fact I liked their food enough to drive to Chandler every time I'm in Arizona. It's a long drive from Scottsdale. I never liked the service but underplayed it in reviews because the food was good. This time though I am done with La Stalla. On a Sunday afternoon (1PM)... More

Having gone to several cities in Italy, I can tell you that La Stalla is one of the best Italian restaurants in Arizona. Our waiter Ricardo was incredible in his knowledge and recommendations. While not a cheap place to eat, it is well worth the money for the food and ambience.
