Good food, great service, will eat here again

We've lived near Stella Notte for 13 years but have never eaten there until now. We were with a group of 5 people aged 12 to 70 and we all enjoyed our meals. Our server was very friendly and helpful. I look forward to going back and trying some different entrees.

This is my first time at this restaurant. We visited at the request of another couple. We had a friendly greeting at the door and were quickly seated. The menu offers standard Italian fare. Bread was fresh, warm and very nice. Our friends suggested the meatball appetizers. They were $3.50 for two, meaty, good sized, served hot and were delicious.... More

We have heard of this restaurant but have never had a chance to try it. Restaurant week was a great opportunity to do so! The staff, including our server Erica were all very friendly. We really liked our table in the enclosed solarium area. The vines and walls really add to the ambiance. We enjoyed the salmon appetizer and shrimp... More

After many friends told us to try Stella Notte we finally did. The restaurant is full of character inside with its brick oven and sun room/terrace. When we arrived we were greeted warmly and given a big first timers welcome. We started with an appetizer of golden calamari with a marinara dipping sauce. Plenty of rings and plenty of "crunchy"...

I've driven by Stella Notte several times and decided to take a chance on this neighborhood spot. So glad I did! And let me say it was the first of many hopeful visits. The service was great! The food even better! Each entree at the table was better than the other! Can't wait to go back!

For a restaurant that sits in the center of a parking lot, I was shocked the first time I ate at Stella Notte. Food is always fresh and nicely prepared and they have a few unique items on the menu (try the Shrimp Scampi Bruchetta - you won't regret it). Service and prices are good and the atmosphere is really... More

This place serves excellent food, accompanied by excellent service. It's a bit pricy, but once you realize just how good the food is, you forget the price. If you go there a lot, they will even call you to let you know they have your favorite dish that night.
