Dined here before the symphony recently. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was perfect. Pasta is made in house and is kept elegantly simple- just the way it should be. Ordered 3 meals and the total bill was under $60. We will return.

This is the second time I'm been to Caffe Delle Stelle and will certainly return. The food was fantastic.

Always excellent Italian food
Always excellent Italian food near the Symphony, Ballet, Jazz center, etc. Delicious homemade pasta and very good wine recommendations. In the past, the service has been amiable but slow - very slow. Last week, however, we were pleasantly surprised at how very efficient and accommodating the service was. We let them know our show time, and the owner ensured our meals were promptly prepare, and he checked on us several times to ensure that all was in order. It was, and we had time to spare. The attention to service was greatly appreciated.

Perfect spot before the Symphony
We were eating light so shared a spectacular pesto crusted sea bass, a well dressed caesar salad, and an interesting grilled calamari appetizer. Service was very gracious. A very nice touch was serving complementary sparkling water!

The dining room was cleared by 7:40PM so everyone in the house could make the 8PM concert. That means the kitchen and all the staff really have the timing down pat! It was impressive. Most other houses actually have one running up against the time so you have only 5 minutes to run to Davies or the Opera House. Great food. Quick service. Good wine list. It remains one of the best houses in the neighborhood. Give yourself a treat!

Perfect for Pre Concert Dining
Caffe Della Stella is just right for dinner prior to the symphony or opera. Friendly, good variety on the menu for a group dinner, pleasant service.

Excellent Italian dishes
Nice little Italian restaurant perfect for post performances. Wait staff was friendly and accomodating. Every dish was excellent including the table bread with the peppernade spread. Starter dishes were grilled baby squid on mashed potato topped with a green sauce and pork meatballs with cheese. Note: use the bread to soak up the sauces! The brown rice risotto with seafood- shrmp, calamari, fish, tasted as if the rice was cooked in shellfish stock, almost like a paella, very satisfying. For dessert the zabaione with biscotti was light and a pefect finish to the meal. Note 2: each table comes with a comlimentary bottle of fizzy water.
With pleasant service and great food, it is now my destination spot for post performance dining.

Caffe Delle Stelle has a rather cozy feel to it. It isn't very big but I think that's one of the things I liiked about it. The food was good and the service was excellent. There were several items on the menu I would have liked to try, but I guess it will have to wait until I eat there again.

Great Pre-concert spot
Fantastic service by our waitress who made menu suggestions, was extremely efficient, and super pleasant. Small restaurant, tables close to each other, and people really enjoying themselves. Great start to our evening before a Chris Botti concert. WE WILL RETURN!
