I will try and not be bias about Stella's because I know the owner very well and not really typing up this review because I'm trying to give my dear friend more publicity. I'm simply typing this review for all to know, when you want or desire authentic super tasty Italian food then please know that you will satisfy your... More

When we were seated, the candle on the table was lit. Nice touch. We enjoyed pizza one night, with 7 toppings! Talapia and Shrimp Scampi were excellent choices for our next night. Both were absolutely delicious! One night we enjoyed live music. Service is excellent. Marco, waiter, cook, and all around fun guy who added to our enjoyment to being... More

We always make a point to eat at Stella's when we are in town. We love the food, atmosphere and service. The most authentic and satisfying Itallian meals! Many gluten free options including deserts . The atmosphere and service is always warm & inviting .

There were so many good reviews but the last few were not very flattering but I thought "surely" it was a fluke. Very nice place, good location. Decent wine at decent prices, good salads. Then we ordered 2 dishes with red sauce (after all who can screw up a basic Italian red sauce?) spaghetti and lasagna. It was served with... More

We had a great meal at Stella's the other night. When we arrived, it was crowded and there was a band playing. Staff made us space at the end of a table where we were able to enjoy our meal and conversation. We started with a bottle of delicious Spanish red.... We selected a cup of portobello mushroom soup and... More

A warm greeting welcomed us into a romantic space with subdued lighting and the American Songbook playing softly. The antipasto was shared by four, the entrees, all pasta, were imaginative and well prepared. Thanks for a great evening.

A friend and I were there to celebrate her birthday. They said on website there was a lounge with entertainment. That did not exist. There was a bar in the restaurant, but that was it. The food was awful and the service was worse. We had a glass of wine. Nobody came back to see if we wanted another glass... More

Pleasant little spot off the beaten tourist walking path. Food ok - not great. We ordered two dishes based on cream sauce (pastas) however the sauce was more like thin brown gravy - very little if any cream and totally differennt taste. Ok - but not what was expected. Good wine list and prices for a smaller place Good service

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.
