Last night's dinners supposedly came with risotto, but when the plates arrived we were disappointed. Risotto says my Italian descendent wife should be creamy. What appeared on our plates was not creamy. We complained and the chef didn't seem to know what my wife was talking about. He just offered us something else. Of course, one wonders if he had...

Immediately upon entering, we were treated like old friends. Our waitress was super pleasant and efficient. While we were placing our orders, she was helpful and offered several suggestions and accommodated our requests for substitutions. This was our 2nd visit this year and the food was excellent both times (as its been on previous visits). Food quality is great, spices... More

Went for dinner with friends this past Sunday. Very relaxed and modern setup/concept. Did not feel rushed. The hostess was nice and very well versed with the menu from drinks to the main dish. The good thing about the menu - few good choices/ creative, and not run of the mill. and that helped a lot. Will take the kids... More

I went to Stella Notte for the first time on Sunday. We decided, at the last minute, to make reservations at a smaller establishment for Mother's Day. I found the listing on trip advisor for top spots in Ellicott City. I made reservations on Saturday evening, and the manager was so accommodating. When we arrived on Sunday, there was a... More

Our party of four went for lunch. We were pleasantly greeted and promptly seated. The lunch menu includes sandwiches, pizza, and entrees. Between the 4 of us, we had the chicken marsala, chicken parmesan, and shrimp alla rosa with house salads. Our food was delivered promptly but without rushing us between courses. All were visually appetizing. We all agreed that... More

We were out for a lunch and decided on Stella Notte since I had never tried it. We were greeted at the door and our server could not have been more personable. He made sure we were taken care of throughout our entire visit. I tried the Chicken Marsala and my friend ordered the Chicken Parmesan. The Marsala had an... More

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
