Overnight stay before flight out of SFO looking on TA for place to eat and this sounded good and proved to be excellent.
Great food and service. Had salad de la Casa, gnocchi, and the sole, all expertly prepared & presented.
Would definitely return.

Great, classical Italian cuisine in a homey welcoming place. Who woulda thunk it!!
The food is the highlight. Very tasty and well-prepared. Nice winelist and okay to bring your own. Caring and attentive waitstaff and ownership.

Stella Alpina is a great local gem, and by the crowd there on a chilly April evening you know why. Selections are varied, lots of special to confuse so many choices, excellent cocktails, and very attentive and pleasant, not stuffy service. The antipasti appetizer plate was excellent, and the veal milanese, gnocchi with sausage, chicken with olives and peppers and osso buco were outstanding. The wine list is balanced and not over priced and we selected a lovely dry red that I can't remember the name of but was very fine, and the waitress did not steer us towards the most expensive bottles. A shared tiramisu for dessert was excellent with excellent coffee. Definitely one to try again when in the area.
