Stellina's is a nice small and very intimate italian fine dining restaurant. The food is pretty good but don't come in here expecting anything but italian fare - you won't get it. The ambiance is nice, and but be prepared to see how cozy the space is (it's a little tight of space in there) - the bar has a... More

A hidden gem in Watertown. Beautiful courtyard with a fountain in the back, warm feeling inside, great wooden bar, private rooms available. This place has been serving "farm to table" before it was so in vogue! Seasonal menu and some standbys. If you are looking REAL AUTHENTIC Italian this will be your place to love and return to time after... More

We always enjoy dinner at Stellina, they use fresh seasonal ingredients and menu varies. Opera nights with family style dinners are especially fine. The wine selection is nice and the bar looks fun.

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, upscale neighborhood place at which I could only wish to afford being... 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
