Picking a pre-built sandwich from behind glass and having it grilled on a panini press is not the same as actually ordering or having one compiled for you. For the sandwich, I'd give it a 2/5. But the gelato was excellent (this gets a 5/5, hence the 4 overall rating), and I appreciate that this business has gone into Old Ottawa South (which needed a shot in the arm). Personally, I'd stick to the gelato when going but I know others have enjoyed the food so maybe it's just me.

We love Stella Luna! The gelato is marvelous, of course, but our real treat is to go first thing in the morning and have waffles. The caramel and banana combination is heavenly. The young one raves about the Stella tella...Nutella on a warm waffle. The waffles are light, and crisp. The coffee is perfect, too.

Stopped in for some gelato after enjoying a meal up the street. You pay before you order. Huge portions! Reasonable prices. The place was very busy but it took no time to get served.

When you go in, join the queue at the cash register as you pay before you choose your ice cream. The portions are big so a large tub is more than most people can eat! Great selection and lots of dairy free.
