Nice place, mediocre food

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... read 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.

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

Food just ok but have never had service so poor Waitress had personality of a tree. Never checked on our meal. Never asked if we would like another drink or refill our water. Asked to have meal not served right after our appetizer and salad but it was. I very rarely write a negative review about service but I couldn't... 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

For a restaurant tucked into strip with banks and CVS, you'd never guess the brick patio, grapevine arbor covered patio. With beautiful planters and a fountain, it's hard to believe that CVS is literally next door. The panini are amazing--half panini with soup in the winter is perfect antidote for endless ice. Pasta with spinach and fresh figs on the... More

My wife and I have dined here often over the years and have always enjoyed both the food and the courteous service. We're not in Watertown all that often but whenever we are Stellina's comes to mind as a great place for an affordably delicious dinner.

It was a great surprise to find Carbonara on the menu -- the pasta dish that I fell in love with in Italy. This little Italian restaurant is a rare find in Watertown, with interesting dishes. The Creme Brûlée Napolean is out of this world!
