Let me start by saying that I like Stella. Their salad is second to none (I think they add olive brine to the dressing) and their pasta sauces are genuine and straight forward. Service is friendly but this time around was a bit deficient. To the point. My wife and I went there for dinner last Saturday at around 6:00pm... More

The service is great and friendly and they do not rush you even if the place is full. The Italian food is great, along with the salad served family style. The bar area is great and its a good place to go with friends to enjoy the evening.

The food here can be either outstanding or so so, depending on which chef is cooking. Very good traditional Italian food when the right chef is there. The meatballs are delicious and very large and they have an absolutely outstanding salad dressing.

Had been there many times in the past, but lately not so good. I had the Chicken Marsala, if I was blindfolded I could not have told you that I was eating a Marsala dish. Their salad is outstanding, I could it eat by the bucket. Sorry
