One of the better wine selections in Lubbock

The menu was a bit more imaginative than many similar establishments. The food was of high quality and very enjoyable. The service was good and attentive though there is some room for improved training.

Made reservations for Thanksgiving. The menu was a wonderful surprise! Soup, Salads (quail on one!), Breakfast (wonderful waffles with pumpkin infused marscapone and butterscotch syrup, Yum!), Entrees (turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, gravy and mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans were a little chewy.) My daughter had chicken lasagna! The menu was very, very eclectic. Old favorites with more nouvelle selections.... More

Stella's provides a welcome alternative to steak, barbecue, and Mexican in Lubbock. Most recently I ate lunch at Stella's. I arrived at the end of lunch service, but was greeted warmly; the waitress and staff did not make me feel rushed. Everyone was pleasant and solicitous. The lunch menu offered a decent variety of options at fair prices. Tables are... More

My husband brought me to Stella's for our anniversary. The atmosphere was pleasant other than we had a very loud table next to us. None of the food was bad, but it was not really of the caliber that we were expecting. I'm not certain that they were, but the potatoes tasted as though they came out of a box.... More

I've always liked Stellas, but hadn't been in a while. No complaints about the food or service. The food was good, and our server was great, but the portion size of the fettuccine Alfredo that we both ordered was very small. My companion, who is a light eater had no problem finishing hers very quickly. The small portion size, plus... More

Stella's is an enigma...when you walk in, they're making pizzas (really fantastic pizzas) but besides the pizza menu, they have really upscale Italian food in a fairly romantic setting. Best of all, each night Stella's has specials that are really hard to pass up. Fresh fish (you heard me--"fresh fish" in Texas!) specials include superb salmon, as well as many... More

Stella's is my husband and I's go-to for a romantic dinner. We spend most anniversary dinners here! The food is delicious and the specials are truly unique. I love the enviornment, calm and intimate. Often you can catch some great music too. I would save this place for dinners with friends or date nights. The chicken soup and brushetta are... More

We have only done take out from Stella's recently but I must say it is the best pizza in Lubbock. Fresh red bell peppers, Italian sausage mushrooms pepperoni. And great crust. Thought I was in New York. You will throw rocks at other take out pizza

We dined for the first time at Stella's with a group of adults and children. I was blown away by the quality of the dishes, and the outstanding service. I enjoyed the evening special, herbed salmon with quinoa. Those of us that ordered pasta were wide-eyed when the dishes arrived due to the large portions! Great for growing kids, not... More

We have given Stella's several chances to gain our loyalty. We went there for a celebration dinner, and we were so disappointed - again. My husband ordered the Braised Stuffed Chicken with the Parmesan Polenta. I ordered the Grilled Ribeye. Both come with a choice of salad. My husband wasn't asked what type of dressing for his, and I wasn't... More
