Amazing gelato. Went with 5 kids and 7 adults and we all had a great time. A great selection of flavors which made it difficult to choose. Thankfully you can choose up to three flavors. Will definitely be back

Amazing gelato, delicious rich and creamy flavor, often has live music...mmmmmm There are multiple flavors. There is often a long line but it goes by really quickly.

This small restaurant specializes in gelato. They have won many international prizes for their unique and tasty flavours. It is not cheap, but you can try 2 or 3 varieties in a cup. It is great! They also offer a small range of fancy sandwiches, etc. for a meal. My favourite is the waffle, with (you guessed it!) a scoop... More

Our first visit to Stella will not be our last. I heard about the line ups but fortunately there was none the morning we visited. This is gelato made the way it should be: thick, creamy, and full of flavour. Their award winning chocolate bourbon and pecan gelato definitely takes the top rating. The staff were very nice and served... More

The best Gelato place in Ottawa and I've tried them all. Parking is readily available in the surrounding streets. Don't be scared by the line up coming out the door, the service is fast. My favorite flavour is Pistachio!

We've visited the location on many occasions and have always loved the product and quite honestly never really had much to say one way or the other about the service, until our last visit. We were greeted at the cash with a rather cold hello. When we made a few inquiries about an allergy we were told NO..we have gluten... More

I had Mediterranean Pistachio, Tiramisu and Ferrero gelato and I loved all of them, especially Ferrero. My 4-year-old daughter also loved the Pistachio.

Pretty crowded place on a Saturday night (good sign!). Ordering was easy. Gellato was very good! Prices are average compared to other places. Would recommend.

I ordered an ice cream cake to surprise my daughter for her birthday, and we all loved it! I also recently had lunch (we ordered the panini) and then had gelato for dessert - perfect combination. There is a large table in the back for a group of about 10.
