Very good food, excellent service and a busy bar scene. Have been here twice and loved it both times. From the basics such as the basket of fresh bread, bread sticks, humus AND bruschetta brought to your table upon arrival, to the fantastic homemade dressing on the house salad and wonderful entrees......everything is delicious! The veal saltimbocca I ordered looked... More

I happened upon Stella's while looking for a place to have dinner. The quaint atmosphere drew me in. The bruschetta and hummus served as soon as I was seated was a pleasant surprise.I was excited to see Braciole on the menu- I never see this stuffed rolled beef entree on a restaurant menu and it was delicious.That and by far...

We went for a small birthday celebration and we made a perfect choice. Even on a week night the wait staff was extremely friendly and available. Service overall was fantastic and i really have to say that although my first choice from the specials menu was out my second choice of the filet mignon was one I'm glad i didn't... More

Stella's is a wonderful place to enjoy a great meal. The service was outstanding. The grilled vegetable appetizer with goat cheese can't be beat! All in all everything was just perfect

The awesome bread basket with various breads and the family style blue cheese salad they deliver before your meal is a huge bonus. They also serve a complimentary bruschetta that is among the best I've ever had. We love everything we've ever had here but the basic spaghetti and giant meatballs is a favorite. The portions are huge so there... More

Hidden away on North Front Street in Kingston is Stella's. You will probably have to look for it, and then spend a smidge of time finding a parking spot. If you don't readily find a parking spot on the street, there are two nearby municipal parking lots. In the evening there is no charge for parking. We were a group... More

Family run restaurant with a hopping bar. I usually go for lunch which is very reasonable. The have a fantastic chicken salad. They are known for their salad which is huge and is made with a blue cheese vinagrette. I am not crazy about blue cheese so I order it light. Dinner is classic Italian.

Pleasant. I cannot ask for more. Stella's is reliably delicious. It is the perfect cozy, romantic Italian restaurant and Italian food is my absolute favorite. I recommend the Calamari and the Chicken Francese (not so Italian but so yummy). Be sure you start with either a Hendricks Dry Martini or a Chocolate Martini minus the Baileys.

I have been going to Stella's on and off for the last 10 years. The food has always been consistently okay. As a matter of fact if it wasn't for their amazing family-style salad I may have given up on this place a long time ago. The bar could be great with the right staff, who know how to make... More
