Stella Modern Italian Cuisine specializes in fresh seasonal menus featuring local and organic ingredients when possible. The wood burning oven is the heart of the restaurant, producing Roman style pizza and the majority of the menu. Our culinary team led by Executive Chef Josh Partain has created a modern menu using ideas that begin with traditional Italian dishes. The wine list is an interesting group of Italian and American wines personally selected by owner/operator Lori Burson.

    Very enjoyable experience. My brother was in town for a visit and Stella was perfect because we could actually have a conversation without competing with loud music. Pasta dishes were excellent, desserts were yummy.

    Although we've eaten countless times at Stella, this was our first time back since the pandemic hit. We were so excited to return to one of our favorite restaurants, which just added to our disappointment. We ordered the lunch special, and nothing about it was up to Stella's standards. The salad was overdressed to the point of being gloppy, and the pizza had way too much cheese on it (and not nearly enough arugula), and sat like a lump in our stomachs for hours afterwards. I hope this was an aberration, and that things will right themselves again soon.

    Stella is my favorite Italian food. It used to be consistent service. Used to. I went 2 weeks ago with 2 close friends and the wait staff seemed annoyed by the time it took us to choose our meal. Went last night with my husband. Didn’t get any bread, offered 1/2 wine bottles but realized later I was charged for the full price. Service was just blah. I’m sad to leave this review. Tried Patrono earlier this week. The service was attentive, warm, friendly and the food was delicious…

    Atmosphere okay, but saw at least 2 men wearing gimme hats and t-shirts and women in flip flops with cheap sun dresses in what I had wrongly assumed was an upscale restaurant. Charcuterie was okay. The risotto was horrible, with excessive wateriness and a blandness that was attempted to cover up with a sprinkling of red peppers. For the prices and district, we expected a lot more, and were greatly disappointed. Don't want to visit again.

    Have dined here before many times and it’s either great or horrible. The foods always good it’s the service that’s hit or miss. This restaurant is kind of pricey for OKC, so you’d think the service would be more consistent.

    Four volunteers (Civic Center) met up for a light supper before starting the evening. Our waitress could not have been more helpful and we were done so fast, we had to have dessert. I have not been going to Stella’s so much lately but…I am going back. Pizza had a cracker crust and splitting it between three of us, along with our Caesar salad was perfect.

    Dissatisfied with the service. No smile, not any extra effort into our service, seemed like she really wasn’t happy when we didn’t order alcohol. Based the on the service, we won’t be back. The food was good. If you’re someone that doesn’t have celiac disease, I highly recommend the food. It was delicious. They do have gluten free items clearly marked on the menu but lack many items that could really enhance the menu. My wife has celiac disease which can make going to a restaurant challenging. My recommendation to the chef and owner. If you’re going to include gluten free items on the menu consider adding a gluten free pasta and/or pizza crust(crust can also be used for toast points on appetizers).

    Food is always amazing… Ambience is good but if I’m being honest, service is probably average. At a place as nice as this, with a price point as high as it is, I always expect the service to be better but it’s not stellar. We didn’t have bad service, but basic things like not rushing your guest when they’re trying to decide a beverage or not interrupting people or not able to tell us the special… Hal Smith restaurants by far always exceed service expectations & expect others to be the same but they’re not

    Stopped on our way through town on a road trip. Cool atmosphere. Bar and patio looked amazing but with kids we elected to sit at a table. A lot couples sat there and the chairs looked amazing. A bit warm to sit outside today. Nice party room off to the side for bigger groups. Staff was pleasant and friendly. We met one of the owners and she briefly sat with us and offered cool places to see while were visiting. The food was good to great. We did have an issue with one of our entrees and they made it right. The desserts could compete with most any restaurant. Limoncello cheesecake takes 48 hours to make! We would definitely recommend a stop at Stella’s!

    Stella is my wife's fave, and it's pretty much the same for me. The food is always prepared nicely, very tasty and the service is likewise topnotch. When the weather permits, the outdoor patio is a fine spot to view the goings on of Midtown. The owner is usually present which means things are run well. Can't go wrong at Stella.

    Love love love Stella! We make it a must for any time we're in OKC. Try the spinach ravioli or one of their signature pizzas. The bar scene is fun and Van, the bartender, is ready to pour your favorite cocktail or recommend a nice wine. We skipped dessert and went for chocolate martinis!

    Stella has really declined in my opinion, we’ve dined here for over 6 years and it just kept getting worse and worse. By “it” I mean the quality and taste of the food, way overpriced. You’re better off going to Olive Garden in my opinion, we will not be going back.
