Have been here several times because of the location and hoping for something really special but it's not happening. All pastas seem to taste the same with no outstanding flavor including seafood. Dishes are "lightly breaded" and "broken shrimp". Recently had Chesapeake ravioli which was basically a cheese stuffed ravioli in red sauce with a sprinkling of crab on top.... More

We stopped in because we heard the food was good. We were seated by a very nice older lady who was quite gracious. We were not dressed up and apparently the waiter, Kevan, thought we were not worth a lot of trouble. We both ordered spaghetti with meat sauce and my companion had a cup of coffee and I had... More

Dined at this restaurant recently with two friends who frequent it often. The restaurant had an attractive interior and a very pleasant hostess. So the initial vibe was quite positive Additionally, the dining and bar areas were quite full of patrons on a Friday night. Our server was reasonably attentive but not exceptional. The menu offered a reasonable selection of... More

I've wanted to write this for months, and kept forgetting. Stella Notte deserves much better. Every single thing I've had here is so delicious, flavourful, satisfying-not a mediocre thing on the menu. The sauces are perfect, and don't drown the food. The pastas are cooked perfectly, as well. My favorite appetizer is the shrimp scampi, which I like so much... More

A friend and I had lunch here a few days ago and it was delicious! I had an item off their special gluten-free menu not because I can't have gluten but because it sounded so tasty (spaghetti squash primavera) and was! My friend had the jambalaya - which she's had before - and enjoyed it again. I was full but... More

I have a group of long time friends who make a point of getting together every couple of months. We catch up with all that is going on in each others lives over a good meal. We have dined at other places, but we just find the atmosphere, the great stone fired pizza and the flavor of the Stella Notte... More

I had driven past this place many, many times. I had no idea as to how good and POPULAR it is. Very crowded, glad that we got there early. Service was fine, bread was good. All four entrees were excellent. I had chicken parm. Two others got shrimp parm. I will return.

I made Valentine's Day reservations in advance. They were for 4:00 pm, and we were on time. A man who I later learned was the owner told the hostess where to seat us. Actually, he pointed because he was on the phone. We were led outside to a covered patio area that was chilly because the weather outside was below... More

The dining room and the service here are excellent. It’s a good family owned restaurant that’s a nice authentic change from chain restaurants. I had the fruits mer. The seafood was exceptionally fresh. In fact some of the best I’ve had. I feel the sauce could have been a bit more substantial, but it really did not matter as the... More
