Probably the best Italian Restaurant outside of Newtown Borough. You can get family style servings or individual ones. The portions are generous and the food is just like My Italian Grandmother used to make. The servers are very friendly. As a special treat, you can reserve the chef's table and experience several wonderful dishes.

If you want to have any type of meaningful conversation, forget it - too loud, the wait staff has to shout the menu to you. Average Italian fare, nothing special. One step above Olive Garden.

Our waiter was sooo bad but luckily the great food made up for it. We didn't even get what we ordered. I ordered Veal Francaise and got veal but it had spinach and cheese on it. My husband didn't get what he ordered either. Luckily, the food we received was delicious. The waiter was barely at our table for more... More

Went here for the first time and it was really nice. I got the tortellini bolognese and it was delicious! Two people in my party did the crab legs special and they said it was phenomenal. I would definitely try this restaurant again! Very cute inside!

I've been here several times with my husband, family and friends. A very nice atmosphere no matter what time of year and the outdoor area is nice as well. I enjoy all of the entrees I've had and I like how everything is a good portion size. Family style portion sizes are also an option which is great when wanting... More

The staff and service at La Stalla are top-notch. They were extremely attentive to our large party (of about 10) and the even offered to get us "extra food" since we loved their gorgonzola gnocci so much!! It's totally the best "Family style" italian you can get in the reason and I would absolutely recommend to friends.

Newtown has many restaurants, and many of them are average, so it was nice to finally try this place. While the reviews are mixed, we had a lovely meal, which was tasty and the service was great. Portions are huge. The salad appetizers, definitely enough for two, were a great start. We tried the fresh arugula salad, which had grape... More

Talk about overpriced. This restaurant in the middle of nowhere charges Manhattan prices for shoeleather chicken - obviously cooked at 10 am and reheated for dinner. What a disappointment. My wife and kid's pasta were both tasty but this place has a lot of nerve serving up recooked food at $23 a plate. I'll never return and neither should you.
