Last weekend we went to Mt. Laura for a day trip to an indoor water park. We discovered Stefano’s using the TripAdvisor app on my phone. My husband wanted Italian, I wanted to avoid chain restaurants and my two young boys wanted to go somewhere that served mac n’ cheese. Stefano’s fit the bill.
It’s located in small shopping plaza. They don’t have a liquor license, so if you like a bottle of wine with dinner, be sure to bring one. Wish we knew that ahead of time.
Service was very good. To start, they bring you a plate of complimentary bread drizzled with pasta sauce, grated cheese and chopped green onions. We polished that off in no time.
I ordered the Cioppino. Great dish. They’re extremely generous with the seafood.
My husband ordered the veal and crab, which was also very good. And the boys enjoyed their mac n’ cheese. One order was more than enough for both of them.
Don’t let the plaza façade fool you, Stefano’s is an excellent restaurant.
