If mediocre is ok then you may be able to enjoy this restaurant. We were very sorry we came. We ended up here only because it was a Sunday night and several of the restaurants we planned to go to were closed. I ordered Scampi for $21 and it was extremely disappointing. My friend had the meatball dish and she... More

I would not recommend this restaurant. The staff was terrible which made the whole visit rate "terrible". The food was ok but not worth the rudness of the staff.

We enjoyed Stella's after trying all the New Mexican food that we found rather bland. The service was very good, the food and wine were excellent and we were so happy to have found some flavor on our trip!

My wife & I picked Stella's on a whim for our anniversary dinner. GLAD we did. A great musical trio was playing as we walked in. Usually I am not a fan of live music, but these guys were not only great but blended the music just right. We chose to do 2 appetizers: calamari & hot spinach salad. Some... More

A perfect place to eat and feel at home. The food and service were great. Probably they need more lighting in the living room.

From the wine, to the food, to the service, to the cappuccino: Great Dining Experience. Our daughter-in-law, who is a "foodie," said, "it was the best meal she has had in two years."

Traditional Italian fare in a café setting, checkered tablecloths & all. Unhurried atmosphere with a good menu and an alternative to those "chile'd out" and seeking some alternative fare for the night. Great meatballs.

Looked for a restaurant that had domestic beer. While their shipment didn't come in and they had limited choice of domestic beer, they were so accommodating.

A friend recommended Stella's as a "must visit" restaurant in Taos. I was a little hesitant heading to an Italian restaurant in the land of green chili and margarita, but I am SO glad that I did! It was honestly the BEST pizza of my life. Even more, the service was spectacular and the experience was divine. My friends and... More
