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

Yum yum yum!!!!! The meatballs are the best!!!! All three of us loved our food. The atmosphere was cute outside. The service was ok. But everyone is entitled to an off night. As long as the food is good, we won't hold it against them. This place is a must eat in Taos.

Not bad. We've had better pizza. Italian crusted Tilapia was good, but there's way too much lemon in it.

My wife ordered the crab cakes and I ordered the eggplant Parmesan with angel hair. for lunch. Both were expertly prepared and delivered to the table in a very reasonable time. My wife loved the roasted peppers on her plate. I particularly liked the tomato sauce which tasted very fresh and not overly heavy. The wine list was not extensive,... More
