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.

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.
