We were there last night for the first time in over a year and I have to say I was disappointed. I normally enjoy it there. Probably the biggest disappointment was the service. Our waiter, as nice and friendly as he was, kept disappearing and forgetting about us. At one point he was talking to the table next to us (talking, not taking an order) for at least 10 minutes while we patiently waited to put in our dessert order. The food was hit or miss. The pork chop, although delicious, was listed as grilled but yet it was covered in bread crumbs. The broccoli rabe had zero taste and was almost watery. Veal paillard also needed more flavor. The stella salad had way too much dressing. The mussels, fried calamari, chicken francese, lasagna were all very good. As I said, I have enjoyed it there in the past so maybe last night was a fluke. I hope so!

My husband and I go to Stella frequently; the food is exceptional. It's a family run business, they are so very nice, the service is excellent, the kitchen is immaculate and food is superb. Everything is good from the appetizer - dessert.
