“Delightful Surprise in Downtown Chandler, AZ”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

New to the area of Chandler, AZ we were walking and looking at menus and hoping to find a nice restaurant. Much to our surprise we did! La Stalla was wonderful. It was packed which indicates we weren't the only one that thought so.
Owners parents are from Italy and have 5 restaurants along the Jersey coast.
Outside dining, a bar with a tv is you can't miss a late game's final minutes, and they have their own parking lot which is a plus for the area.
Food was fantastic.
We will definitely go again and so far, it's our favorite restaurant in Chandler.

“Great Place to Meet and Eat!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

This is our favorite Italian Restuarant in the USA. Unusual recipes and hearty servings! Love the ambiance and the excellent service. They have very affordable lunch specials! My favorite is the Barrata appetizer and their Tiramisu! If you can't eat in Italy, this is the next best!

“I would come back the next time I am in town.”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Nice menu, but I stopped reading at gnocchi. Very good and a generous portion. Also had the tortellini soup. Had an Italian beer with the meal and an espresso after. Friendly staff and a pleasant atmosphere.

“Best Gnocchi I have ever had!”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

This was one of the best most authentic italian dinners I have had in a while. The Gnocchi I ordered was out of this world good. All of my coworkers also enjoyed their meals!

“True Italian Food”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

The La Stalla Cucina Rustica in Chandler is a great place to stop in for true Italian food. You can tell the owner takes pride in what he serves. The restaurant is a quaint place with a warm and inviting feeling. We had stopped in the night before we ate their, had a drink and to check out the place. The staff was very welcoming and friendly, so we decided to go back. Unfortunately, the next night when we went for supper the waiter (Tyler) we had was very cold, did not offer any type of conversation at all. We noticed the rest of the servers were all very friendly. That was a disappointment for us!
