I eat here at least twice a month with my parents and children. They are so nice to my parents and kids!!! Everything on the menu is great but I seem to always choose the spaghetti with meat sauce. Always a winner. The other night I tried the trout and risotto and was very pleased! It was a very large... More

My son-in-law chose the restaurant based on trip advisor reviews. It was definitely a good choice. We had fried ravioli and crab and risotto balls for appetizers. Everyone had different main dishes and no one was disappointed. I particularly appreciated the spaghetti squash option as a main dish and its inclusion in the build your own pasta options. Dessert was... More

We came to Stella Notte on Wednesday, which was buy one get one pizza night and 1/2 wine night. There were a variety of pizza options and the chicken pesto and carne pizza were good. Our waitress was friendly and engaging and the other staff was very attentive. The hostess, maybe the mother or relative of the owner, came around... More

This is an excellent restaurant! The food is fresh, beautifully prepared and served by wait staff that is very competent, friendly and attentive. The seafood mac and cheese is the best I have ever eaten, and the portion was so large we had some to take home. I was served just as it came from the baking oven, hot, fresh... More

A great pasta and pizza restaurant. They have a nice, cozy bar with friendly bar tenders and two dining rooms. Service is always good. They have a two for the price of one pizza night which is popular. I like their pizzas and their Pete's Greek entree is one of my favorites there.

Stella Notte is a somewhat expensive place to dine, but the meals are always very well prepared. Lots of low light ambiance.

He must have been off that day because the food tasted like it was made by an impersonator. The balance and flavor of the scallops Michael Angelo were off. Too little risotto, too much spinach. A rationing of tomatoes. Salt. Whoever threw it together simply did not care. The linguine in clam sauce (white) also disappointing in flavor. I hope... More
