Pasta with a Hollywood Flair

This Italian restaurant at the upper end of Ledoux Sreet has a nice menu of Italian and simple pasta dishes. The décor features old black and white posters of stars from the '30s, '40s and '50s, and the food is as dependable as the stars once were. A pleasant place to relax after spending an hour... read more

We have eaten in Italian joints and upscale restaurants everywhere; Vegas, New York, Italy,,,, you name it. Nothing has compared to this place, Stella's for... More

We were in Taos a few weekends ago and we looked forward to returning to Stella's. This restaurant has become our favorite Italian restaurant and we wish it was closer to Denver so we could go more often! This place is special. The location, the atmosphere, the service and the food!!! They have a nice courtyard where we sat and... More

I have celiac disease so it is a delight when I discover an Italian restaurant that has gluten free pasta. Not only was my pasta Bolognese dish delicious, but I wasn't charged extra because it was gluten free. It was preceded by a generous spinach salad. If I ever vacation in Taos again, this will be my first dinner stop.... More

Cozy and intimate Italian restaurant. We shared a pizza, which was excellent. They had some live music the evening that we went and they were very good. Good service and friendly people.

Feeling the urge for a heaping dish of pasta in the land of chile. Stella's recommended to me by a server at Eske's . Variety of choices on the menu. Enjoyed the squash ravioli and house red. All was good! Two comments: Need better lighting in the place. Service was indifferent and mechanical (was dining alone and sat at bar).... More

Almost gave up on finding somewhere good to eat on a quick overnight trip to Taos when we discovered Stella's. Very welcoming and nice atmosphere on a cold, damp evening. Both the minestrone and portobello soups were excellent, as was the sea scallops served on a bed of spinach, asparagus and pasta. Nice presentation and very tasty. Thought we'd try... More
