I was so impressed by the very polite service, I felt I needed etiquette refresher to eat there! So attentive and warm. Enjoyed the outdoor dining on the street, very lively and portable heaters helped as the sun went down, excellent location,great choices on the menu for diverse tastes. Everyone enjoys what they ordered and it was served with impeccable style.

My friend introduced me to this restaurant. She raved that it had the best gelato and took me there to prove it. She was absolutely right. I highly recommend trying the pistachio flavoured gelato (both of our faves) - of course if you don't have a nut allergy. I have been returning and bringing all my friends here. All are very happy costumers. True gem in Ottawa.

Stella Luna opened in my neighbourhood a couple years ago and we wish it were still a secret. The gellato is hand made, absolutely incredible mix of ingredients. Don't be discouraged by the line up out the door. It is worth the short wait. They have other things on the menu - coffees, sandwiches, cakes...but no matter what the season, you'll be tempted by the gellato. Now that you know, there is less left for me...

Stella Luna recently made the finals of the World Gelato Championships and you can see why. The quality and flavours of the ice cream are extraordinary. My daughter and I each bought the $7 serving and staggered away with a tub stuffed with three flavours each: I had lemon, passion fruit and a mixture of cherry and mango and passion fruit and they were all wonderful. My only quibble is the service. I stood in line for a few minutes and slowly noticed that people were paying with chits of paper they had bought in advance at the till. I asked how they had known they needed to pay in advance and with a grump the man behind the counter pointed to a small sign at the front of the store where written in small letters was the information. I think they could have been more polite.
