    As always, staff was friendly & food was delicious. We've never had anything we didn't like. Their Italian dishes are totally different from your typical Italian restaurant.

    Bread is an appetizer that you can order. We shared a Caesar salad and it was garlicky and good. The portion was generous. I had the squid ink tagliatelle, which was delicious. It was enough that I took half home. My husband had the paella, that he found very special and delicious. No room for dessert. We wish that we were informed that there is a surcharge for using credit cards. Although on both dinner and dessert menus it was stated that they have an atm. When we inquired about this from our waitress, she informed us that it was removed the week before.

    Outstanding restaurant with great atmosphere. From the salads to our meals, everything was delightful. Our main entrees included the veal dish and the eggplant. Never tasted veal so tender. It was a 5 star dish. My eggplant was a large serving with the most tender eggplant and not overly cheesy. It was delicious. We started with the bread plate and Cesar salad. Everything was 5 stars. A true gem of a restaurant in this area. We’re still talking about our experience and it’s 24 hours later. A must try.

    I ordered the chicken dinner and it was perfectly cooked and moist. My date ordered the sausage and spaghetti which was good but had very little sausage. We had the mussels for and app and they were delicious. For dessert the chocolate torte was wonderful!

    Always a great dinner but very hard to get a reservation. We had Labne salad which is excellent. Salmon and Sole were perfectly prepared. Would like to see the credit card service charge eliminated as menu prices have been raised.

    This is my second time to Stella's I love the atmosphere and the food. I took friends there who did not know about it, they too loved it and will return on their own. I also have recommended it to friends who have gone for dinner and really liked it. I think it is a winner.

    Had a lovely evening at Stella -as always. We shared the bacon wrapped dates and each ordered the veal dish. This is our favorite veal dish, pounded really thin, not fried, and topped with eggplant -tender and delicious- the pasta on the side had this amazing -creamy but light tasting sauce on it. We have had almost everything on the menu since we’ve been coming here - you can’t go wrong!!
