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.

New to the area, and wanted to grab a bite. Happened upon Sella Notte and I am happy I did. Food was fresh and piping hot. Staff was excellent, friendly, and attentive. Will be back.

I have eaten at Stella Notte with my husband and various friends the past few years and have always loved the food, ambience and service. We recently held my daughter's baby shower there and the event exceeded my wildest expectations. I primarily worked with Dan in planning the event. He was so helpful and accomodating. Dan made wonderful suggestions and... More

This is a favorite place to come for a random dinner out, but also for special occasions. The wait staff is the best and the owner(s) are always present and take the time to greet and welcome you to the restaurant. The food is fabulous from pizza to pasta and everything else in between....we have never had a bad meal.

My wife and I live nearby and have been going to Stella Notte for years. The service is friendly and efficient. The prices are reasonable. There is an extensive menu with a wide variety of options, including a few that are not Italian. Everything is delicious. We have never had a bad meal there.

We arrived to a half empty dining area and the hostess insisted we sit in the bar. The bar tables, if you are eating are--seriously--not joking--less than 8 inches between each other. You might as well make it a community table. So much for private conversation. Food is average. Nothing spectacular. Bread is plain white bread that you have to... More

This restaurant has been there for a while and it shows. We went on a Thursday night. I'm 45 and was on the young side of the diners that evening. We chose this restaurant to try for an upcoming event, a possible venue for a wedding rehearsal dinner in May so I was checking out everything. The restaurant could use... More
