Good Italian food with good music. We went on a Friday night and found the food good and reasonably priced. Conveniently located near the Plaza.

Absolutely delicious food! What a nice break from all the Mexican Restaurants in Taos. Being on a diet, I opted to order a cup of minestrone soup and a spinach salad and was absolutely delighted with how fresh the salad was and how delicious the soup was! My partner had one of the specials - chicken cordon bleu over fettuccine... More

Had wine and pizza. Pizza crust was overcooked and tough. We sat outside with almost no lighting, ate in the dark. The hostess/server took forever to acknowledge us and was rude. I cannot recommend this restaurant.

Stella's is one of our favorite places for a casual but excellent dining experience. We love Italian, and a special feature at Stella's is the olive oil bar that is included in the price of your meal. Dip some wonderful homemade bread in your choice of garlic, red peppers, a variety of olives and olive oil. The pizzas are wonderful,... More

We went here twice on a recent 6 day visit to Taos. The patio is lovely and we enjoyed an antipasti platter and wine outside. When a storm rolled in, we moved inside for gluten free pasta dishes. I had the Carbonara on both visits and it was delicious. My husband had the Cajun pasta and was very pleased. Two... More

Nice outdoor seating. Relaxing atmosphere, there was no rush. My husband enjoyed his meatballs and linguini. I did not love the eggplant parmesan. I might have just chosen wrong that day.

Nice restaurant with good parking around the corner. Friends and good wait staff. Very good pasta dishes with good selection of wine and beer However do Not order the pizza mine was cooked to death sad because it took the edge off an otherwise nice experience

This restaurant was highly recommended but was a disappointment. The food was mediocre, but the service was less than good. The owner wouldn't even look at us. The waiter was lack luster. The only person that seemed to care if we were there was the young girl that brought us water and wine. I think there are better places to... More
