What's not to like? Good value, delicious, unique flavours, plenty of seating, bright atmosphere. This strikes me as the perfect place to go after dinner at one of the other restaurants in Old Ottawa South.

Stella Luna has been open about a year. From the start its gelato has been a hit. On summer weekend nights there are line-ups to get gelato. The gelato is made in the store. The service is friendly. There is a lot of seating. My wife says the coffee is great, she prefers it over Starbucks; and the sandwiches are tasty. Parking can be a bit difficult on weekend nights. However, if you love gelato, you'll love this restaurant.

My mom and I loooove gelato, so we knew we had to try this place. It was pretty awesome! I have eaten a lot of gelato in my time (did I mention I love it?) including lots in Italy, and Stella Luna was definitely up there with the greats! I had almond-honey-lemon and it was heavenly. I wish I was eating more right now! A bit of a hike from downtown, but totally worth it!

Ambiance fine, service needs to be friendlier and more understanding especially if someone doesn't handle english very well

I've had Gelato at many, many different places. Stella's Gelato is good, it's not what I'd consider great, but it is good.

Stella's sandwiches on the other hand are definitely mediocre, Subway is a step up from here. Given the price, I'd expect a lot more then a single slice of meat, some cheese and the occasional limp lettuce.
