I must confess that Carmen and I have become complete "regulars" at Stellas over the last year and a half and we HAVE to eat here at least once a month to celebrate meeting here for the first time. Over the time, Thomas and Suri and (we miss you Jeremy!) have become our Stella's family. All of the food here is amazing, but we have a romantic tradition of ordering what we ordered the first time...the garden salad split between us, the artichoke-sundried tomato flatbread pizza and a great bottle of Malbec to share... This is heaven in Ocala.
Everyone is so special and makes US feel so special too...the presentation of the food is as good as it tastes! And...the desserts are literally heavenly...you MUST save room for dessert! (My favorite- the red-velvet cake)
Tapas night....(last Saturday of the month) are great fun too and allow the chefs to get really creative. Each night highlights a different theme or cuisine. My only suggestion is that I wish that there would be a few more non-meat/pork tapas for us to choose...but, all of the tapas are wonderful.
Bottom line- I highly, highly recommend. Stellas is the place that you hunt for on TripAdvisor...that out of the way place that serves fabulous food, with amazing service and just makes you smile...it is not just the best restaurant in Ocala...it is the best anywhere!
