“Better than average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

Upscale dining room with everything in the right place: upbeat jazz, well presented tables, professional severs. Joined them for lunch and was underwhelmed by too many ingredients and messy presentations. Prices were more than fair. Would return.

“A birthday celebration at Tony Stella's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW via mobile

I took my boyfriend to Tony Stella's for his brithday upon his request to eat Italian that night. After several courses of incredible food, amazing service (from Tony and his staff), an elegant but fun ambiance, and Absinthe, we can both say our decision to go was a highlight of his birthday. Tony not only greets you via phone and in person at the restaurant, but also serves your table. He's assisted by a friendly and knowledgable staff that checks your table frequently throughout your meal. My water glass never fell below half full. The food was delicious. I ordered the tomatoes bisque and crabcake entree per Tony's recommendation and loved it! Each meal comes with a salad and side of vegetables and risotto, which makes the dinner very filling. The last thing I'll note is how Tony helped surprise my boyfriend with a candle in homemade tiramisu and say happy birthday to him - it was great! I'll definitely go back in the future and would recommend it to others as well!!!

“Special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015 NEW

This is a special restaurant. It's the kind of place you go to celebrate a special day or event. It's located in a converted Victorian home. Everything from the small bar to the dining area presents an atmosphere of intimacy. The service is efficient, friendly and professional. The owner, Tony Stella, is omnipresent making sure that all is running smoothly and even lends a helping hand with the service. The food is both inventive and excellently prepared and presented. This was our 28th anniversary, a special date for us and I can't think of a better experience in celebrating it. It is not inexpensive, but neither is it outrageous, just special.
