We have visited this restaurant before and had an equally delicious meal as we had before. The place is expensive, but, the service and setting is novel and inviting. The waitstaff is very professional and is very good about explaining the menu to you. Much...More

This is a restaurant that does not disappoint. It's a regular stop for us whenever we are in the area. You will likely need a reservation to get a table no matter the day. We began our meal with the asparagus atop cibatta covered by...More

Very unique menu and all dishes are wonderfully prepared. The atmosphere is very nice and romantic. Over price, but a special occasion and a unique menu can make it an event. Bring your credit card.

Fabulous dinner. The specials are chef originals. Love the pasta and the homemade sauces. Service is comfortable. In a unique building, it use to be a hospital for the mental patients. Very chic with boutique shops throughout.

The atmosphere is very cool & intimate feeling though the place was full. Our waitress was knowledgeable & friendly. The food (I had the rib eye my wife a handmade pasta dish) was tremendous. I highly recommend Stella.

Very expensive restaurant. Our special of the day was lamb tongue. HUH? Many options were animal organs. Prime rib was $55. Guess I am not that cultured. I estimated my meal alone would be close to $100 if I had the prime rib, a drink,...More

You can tell it's not what it used to be when only 4 tables were occupied at peak lunch time. Management has changed the menu, and not for the better. They have taken away the ever popular meat & cheese appetizer tray which was outstanding...More
