Had the pleasure of dining at this fine establishment last night with wife and another couple. Ambiance was subdued and classy, but had to sit inside because of bad weather. The warm tomatato appetizer we had was probably the best I've ever had. Generous pieces of delicious tomatoes that were perfectly seasoned. Four entrees were chicken parm, seafood dish, pork...

Enjoyed dinner with friends on a friday night on the patio under the grape arbor. We shared the warm tomato salad and fresh figs as appetizers. Delicious! I had a vegetarian lasagna that was very generously sized, nice pizzas, homemade pastas offered too. We live not far so its nice to enjoy a lovely meal without going into the city.... More

consistently great food and service. I like the outdoor dining too. Unusual combinations for a fresh menu.

Thank you patsy for your encouragement. It's an exciting time of the year, with the harvest slowly progressing. Just last week we received our first six cases of super-ripe Black Mission Figs from California. Incredible on a pizza with smoked prosciutto and Gorgonzola cheese. More

We ate outside in the back (near parking lot) of Stellina, a quasi Italian restaurant, whose chef knows how to create sumptuous meals. The watermelon salad was simply delicious, yet everyone else who ordered different salads proclaimed they had the best! Chicken marsala was excellent and the sides were recognizable, in contrast to weird undercooked root vegetables that are the... More

Glad you enjoyed our menu. We take as much pride in our side dishes as we do the proteins. As for the garden decor, my apologies. We are in the process of upgrading, but unfortunately it takes a while to get the pieces that we want. Thanks again for your kind comments. More

What a treat to find soft shell crabs on the seasonal menu, nicely prepared with capers in a light butter sauce with pasta. And a generous portion too with two crabs. Modern cuisine, American with some continental touches. Can be noisy as it is popular but mid week we were easily able to converse. Would have liked a few more... More

Glad you enjoyed the crabs. Unfortunately their season is in flux right now, so we've switched to something even fresher and more local: Massachusetts Wild Striped Bass, delivered fresh from Chatham. The bass season only runs into early August, so it's a special once-a-year treat! More

Have been here only a couple times, but nothing pulls me back in. The food is good, pizza is good. i felt that the menu doesn't change often. The place is a little dark inside and could possibly need some updating.

Terrific entertainment, food and sharing with patrons at the table. Go there whenever I can summer and winter. Wonderful food.

Annie, So glad that you enjoyed Sunday Night At The Opera. I think many people enjoy the relaxed informality of the event. I am especially impressed that after three years the singers of Opera-On-Tap continue to offer new and exciting programs every time. Hope to see you again soon. More

Stellina's is a lovely place to spend the evening with friends, a sweetheart, or a colleague. It works for all occasions. The setting is relaxed but elegant. The food never disappoints. And, the wait staff are attentive.

I have been to Stellinas quite often during the last few years and have always enjoyed being there. We went recently and had a wonderful dinner with the lovely winter salad which we shared, the hot apple turnover with ice cream for dessert, and the really good chicken marsala....Stellinas makes my favorite marsala dish.

Susan, The Chicken Marsala recipe we use is in the traditional Italian style, with a reliance on a minimal number of high quality ingredients. All-natural ABF (anti-biotic free) Chicken, imported Marsala wine and Prosciutto di Parma are keys. (Plus a couple of cooking tricks that we've learned over the years) Glad you've enjoyed it. More
