Just What I Want in a Restaurant

Stellina's has it (almost) all. Wonderful food that clearly starts with great ingredients; service that is simultaneously professional, not "fussy," and very human (in the sense that our servers behaved and felt like real people, the value of which I can not overstate). It feels like a friendly... read more

The Warm Tomato Salad is the main reason we keep returning to Stellina, but the other food is also fantastic. We recently dined there for a light bite, though my husband and 9-year-old daughter each demolished the meatballs and linguini: Stellina Meatballs: beef, pork, garlic, country bread, and parmesan; with tomato sauce and linguine ($18). There were about 5 decently-sized... More

A great restaurant to go lunch or dinner. A great ambient inside and a relax ambient outside. A restaurant with a "half-light" inside, cold beers, an excelent service by waiters (always with a good humor) Congrats for all that work there. For suggestion: begin to sell brazilians beers lol

A cozy, slightly clattery, eatery in Watertown Center, very handy to Cambridge. Moderate prices and carefully prepared dishes. Friendly staff. There is a dining patio--weather permitting. This is New England after all. Stellina Meatballs beef, pork, garlic, country bread & parmesan; w/ tomato sauce & linguini were excellent.The tomato sauce was delicious and clearly had been carefully simmered over a... More

Stellina is a cozy, pleasant restaurant with a charming garden for outdoor dining. We chose to eat inside, and were seated next to the window--which meant we could watch the cars waiting at a busy intersection--not quite as romantic as it could have been for our anniversary. We had made a reservation for 7:30, and it turned out that the... More

A treat every time I go; had the Sausage Plate this evening and I must say; one of the tastiest meals I have had in a while. The food was prepared wonderfully and when paired with a Super Tuscan; it brought out all of the flavors in each and every bite. Kudos to the chef on a job well done.... More

So glad the nearby chain restaurant was full, which caused us to look for an alternative. Had a really delicious meal with excellent service in a warm, friendly atmosphere. Menu is not large, but has something for everyone. Nice beer and wine selection. Creme brulee excellent. Price was a very good value (comparable to the nearby chain, but oh, so... More

This place was recommended by a friend of a friend who lives nearby. There were three of us at dinner. Because of a musical event in one room we were seated in another, which was quiet. Quiet, until a very noisy party arrived: several adults and at least 2 very small children. It was a birthday celebration and we were... More

Charming atmosphere, good food, attentive service. A tilt toward Italian, but a nice variety of food, and a to-die-for dessert--their house special. Feels a bit European.
