Good food and great service, but pricey and probably a bit over rated. We tried La Stella after several people recommended to us and we probably had expectations that were too high.Nothing to complain, but I was expecting something more for what we paid.

Based on my previous positive experience in July, I decided to come back while driving back home. This time, I ordered the crudo(raw fish platter) and was excellent & fresh. Pasta with lobster sauce as main was good also. Add the ultra friendly service( I am non Italian speaker), and you would understand why this restaurant located a bit remote... More

The place is just fantastic. Located in a beautiful building in the mountain, with an amazing view, it serves the greatest fish and seafood you can imagine. Pesce crudo - a must have starter. The quality of red tuna is just unbelievable. We are regular guests there and would be even more regular, if only we lived closer:) I also... More

We stopped for lunch here by chance on our way back from Switzerland to Milan airport ( thank goodness for smart phones) and nearly missed our plane because of it! The service was superb, efficient but very friendly, with both the wine and the food, especially the seafood, excellent. We could not have had a more enjoyable meal in more... More

The people at La Stella are trying hard. This is the second time that I've eaten there (the last time was a couple of years ago), and the chef is trying really hard. Unfortunately, it's just not really good enough to elevate it to anything other than ordinary. The place itself is quite nice with a very pleasant atmosphere. The... More

As they wanted to check off as many European countries as possible in one trip, we drove through the beautiful Simplon Pass and found ourselves in the beautiful town of Domodossola. We found La Stella highly recommended by TA and decided to have... More
