Delightful meal

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.

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

Took the family to this not so little Italian restaurant. The food and service was excellent. We sat in the bar area and the waiter/bartender, Miles, was great and attentive. Will definitely go back 😃

I started coming to Stellina's about twenty years ago. They haven't changed a lot, and are still going strong. I think, if anything, they have slightly upgraded. I typically eat at the bar, order a drink and a couple small dishes, or a main course. If you are picking between Not Your Average Joe's, Talk, and Stellina's, go to Stellina's.... More

Stellina's has a great atmosphere ~ I love the area added a while ago with the bar and tables alongside it. If you like quiet and intimate, that's an area to request. I had the most delicious hangar streak, cooked perfectly, with fresh tomatoes, spinach and onion ... cooked perfectly, and a deliciously healthy meal. They have very cool special... More

We came here for dinner as a couple to celebrate my birthday. We were lucky to eat outside next to the fountain and the grapevines. Do make a reservation if you plan to go - the place was busy even in the middle of the week. The food and the service were good. I particularly like the fact that they... More
