We were visiting the town square and asked for a recommendation for dinner. We were told about Stella's which sits behind the LaFonda Hotel. We walked over for dinner. We both had the spaghetti. I had the meatballs and my husband had the meat sauce. It was absolutely delicious paired with a local Ponderosa Winery wine. We heard that the... More

This is our 3rd visit to this fine restaurant in 3 years. The food and service are excellent. My husband and I both had the rainbow trout with different types of pasta and sauce. This is a MUST GO TO when in Taos.

The staff was fantastic. We all ordered something different (6 family members). Antipasto Excellant. Roasted garlic and hot homemade breads delicious. Wine selections perfect. Then finished off a great birthday dinner with homemade Key-lime cheese cake with a singing staff, my family and about 25 or more patrons joining in and make a day perfect. ps you have got to...

We walked here from La Loma Inn for my husbands birthday dinner. They offer a wonderful menu and the ruby trout entrée was artfully prepared and artistically presented. The portion was huge. There's an olive bar that you can help yourself to. We were presented with a birthday dessert surprise. We recommend Stella's for the great food and friendly service.

I agree with other reviewers re: this place should be packed. The service is great and friendly. I enjoyed their red trout special and my husband had their sausage and fettuccine - both were very good. Wine selection was very good. We were only in Taos for three nights, so we only dined there once. If we stayed another night... More

We were here on the 1st Sunday in June and were one of two couples in the restaurant. I don't know why. Good was great, the ambience wonderful with an outdoor courtyard, and the service was excellent.

Every town has one or more Italian restaurant, but Taos can boast one of the best! Their pizzas are sweet and abundantly dressed with you choice of toppings and can't be beat for $12-13. We also tried other entries on other nights and were equally impressed with the delicacy with which they handled preparation.

This is a restaurant where you feel like you are in a European cafe. The food is absolutely delicious and the service given makes you feel like you are part of the family. They also have a wonderful wine list. Will definitely return.
