We enjoy going to La Stanza all the time ,but especially on Tuesday nights in the summer season. They have an Italian buffet which is very good. Some of their best menu selections such as ziti and meatballs and parmesan encrusted chicken are always on the buffet. It is a reasonable price and... read more

We were looking for a quiet Italian restaurant with reasonably-priced food and we found it at La Stanza. The tables were nicely set with tablecloths and linen napkins with Italian favorites music playing. The waitress was very friendly and efficient and the homemade ravoli was an excellent choice. The tiramisu for dessert was just as good as the one at... More

Went here for the first time after hearing about it for a few years. Good happy hour-2 for 1. I enjoyed the eggplant rollatini on the Early bird but didn't care for the sauce. Two others had Veal Sorrentino, also on the Early Bird, and were disappointed-proscuitto was too salty. Another had calamari marinara, which he enjoyed. The other 2... More

Very nice restaurant. My friend had the Basa which was very, very good. I had the pork chop special which was very flavorful but a little dry. Service was great and other than the slightly dry chops and very good overall meal and experience

This WAS always a "go to" selection for myself and friends, not so much anymore. While I do understand the unique problems w/holiday meals, the menu should reflect what one will ultimately be served. The "rack of lamb" was merely rib chops artistically piled on top of one another, the lasagna was doughy at best, nary a trace of a... More

We tried La Stanza as a group of 7 for dinner on a Sunday evening. They had no problem accommodating our group size without a reservation. The service was good - our drinks were always full and there was always bread on the table. The food was good - not great. No issues, just not as good as we've had... More

We are usually delighted with our service and food at La Stanza but this past Thursday we asked for a quiet table so we could talk and enjoy our friends and they graciously gave us a very private table. While that was enjoyable, our wait for our dinner was not. When it finally arrived, it was delicious. The waitress apologized... More

This is a nice place to go for Sunday brunch. Our family enjoyed the variety of foods available. I believe it is $13.00 per person.

Visited this restaurant with family of 4 adults last night. Meals tasted fine but 2hrs after I got home I was doubled over with stomach cramps and sick. Obviously from what I ate. Called manager today and he said "sorry". Really? Thanks....will not be going back.
