I used to frequent Stafano's for lunch when I was working in town. I used to get the salad with grilled salmon or a veggie sandwich. They were always good but my favorite thing about Stafano's is the owners, a lovely couple. Hard working, friendly and no matter how long it's been, they always remember me and make me feel... More

They have the best chicken salad. Everything else I've tried is great too. If they weren't inside Fountain Square Mall they wouldn't be a secret anymore and they store would packed with customers

The owners are very friendly and treat you like family. I tend to order the chicken salad sandwich nearly every visit since I enjoy the taste. It has lots of dill which adds to the flavor. Service is excellent and atmosphere is enjoyable.

I went in to Stefano's for a late lunch. I ordered the triple decker, and I was asked if I wanted the wheat bread or the best white bread that was homemade right there in the cafe. Of course I had to choose the best bread. I also got the chicken noodle soup, which was one of the soups of... More

This is a little cafe inside the Fountain Square Mall on the lower level, with sandwiches, chips and desserts. A very unique setting. Staff made you feel at home. I would go back.

limited menu, good desserts. People are very nice and the food is OK. Not much seating area. Wish they had a better menu.
