Went for our 8th anniversary dinner. We are both vegetarian and they have quite a few options for veggies - good ones too! Our server was attentive and helpful with excellent tableside manner. They even brought us a complimentary anniversary dessert. The only negatives were there was not a special nook we could hole ourself away in (only open seating) and there was a lot of noise with quite a few larger groups. Other than that, it was a picture perfect night!

Wonderful food, but I missed the delicious Italian wedding soup. Seasonal? The service was a bit slow.

good neighborhood restaurant
Just moved into the neighborhood and was looking for good food, casual atmosphere and reasonable price. Stella met all these. The food was interesting, used fresh ingredients, and the service was attentive. We were not rushed. Creative bruschetta and tasty gazpacho with just enough heat, followed by pastas. Excellent house-made bread. The bruschetta had obviously been toasted in the wood-fired pizza oven. Will return.

We had such a fun time catching up over good cocktails and yummy food!

Good friends introduced us to Stella and we have done the same for other friends. The menu's variety, the food quality, the reasonable prices, and the fantastic service all serve to make it a great place.

Brunch: not as STELLAr as dinner...
We first dined here about 2 years ago for dinner, and it was awesome! We ate brunch this month and had to wait for nearly everything. The food was good, but our previous dinner had been superb!

Stella is really high on our list of OKC dining establishments! We don't go there often - but when we do we are never disappointed! Top notch!

Our appetizer was very good
Our appetizer was very good and we both enjoyed our entrees. We had the "Candy Bar" dessert which was unique and delicious!!
Plan to go back with friends.

My wife and I had an enjoyable
My wife and I had an enjoyable evening at Stella. Service was very friendly and efficient and the food was excellent. My wife had the evening special of halibut and I had the grilled pork chop. Both entrees were tasty and beautifully plated. The salad of roasted beets is as fine a salad is there is in OKC.
I know Stella had a spotty start when it opened. However, it is now a wonderful place to dine. We highly recommend.

Went here on a Friday night for the first time. Staff was extremely friendly and food was delicious. Nice ambiance. I would highly recommend reservations.

A great night out
This is not your "eat and run" kind of restaurant. It deserves a full evening to relax, to enjoy the ambiance, and to appreciate the thoughtfulness of the menu and the wait staff. Two and a half hours went by very quickly as we worked our way through a delightful menu - and wine list! Great addition to our downtown offerings.

First time visit--Won't be my last!
Delicious food (appetizers and pizza are quite reasonable and large enough for meals), creative drink menu, and very kind and friendly wait staff make this a destination dinner spot. I am looking forward to going back and sampling more from their menu. The bruschetta sampler was delicious and different, the pizza thin-crusted and flavorful. For those looking for a unique alternative (a non-Olive Garden experience) in Italian dining, I would definitely recommend Stella's.

Perfect End To a Perfect Day
I had just surprised my fiance with a new car. Surprise could not have gone any more perfect.
After she was done calling friends and family, we took the new car for a spin. This lead to Stella, where I had reservations at 6:30. We were a little early, but they say us immediately.
The staff was very friendly and professional. Our wait staff was extremely knowledgeable of the food preparation and specials. Prompt service.
Calm, intimate atmosphere.
Extremely good food!
A little pricey, but I believe it was appropriate for the quality.
Thanks for a great evening!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Two words- Great Chef!
The menu is full of wonderful items and each dish is impeccable! Server was good but seemed a bit rushed even though they were not busy. The food made up for my empty drink glass. Can't wait to go back and try something else!

I was looking for a chef run non-chain Italian restaurant for a place to go when I visit Oklahoma City 4 or 5 times a year. I found Stellas Modern Italian Restaurant on the web and decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did!!! From the waitress Kendall, to the last bite of dessert, it was a wonderful dining experience. I now have my Oklahoma City restaurant. I believe my family members in the area will also be frequenting Stellas.

Great restaurant! It never disappoints in the food and service.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in a rush to get to
We were in a rush to get to the theater and they really hustled to accommodate our schedule. We appreciated that a lot! Besides the food is always great.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Yes, Stella's is an awesome place for upscale, modern Italian but did you know they have excellent, reasonably priced pizzas too? Thin crust, high quality toppings - great to share as an appetizer or as a big meal for one.

Only has gotten better with time
The food and service here have just gotten better with time. My wife and I enjoyed every aspect of our meal and the service was spot on.

Birthday brunch at Stella
There were five of us at Sunday brunch. We each ordered something different and everyone liked his/her food. Very inventive menu and we appreciated the seasonality. The thin crust pizza was a favorite as was the "green eggs and ham". Our birthday friend had a great time. Michael was our server and he was great. So glad you're in the neighborhood.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always have a great meal, great service and a pleasant time.

Consistently good food and service
It is out of our way, so we don't eat here often, a couple of times a year, but the food is always very good and the service attentive but not bothersome. Quiet enough to carry on a conversation but not hushed to where you feel like you need to whisper. The Italian sausage they carry is the best.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my wife to Stella for dinner prior to going to a musical. The food was excellent. The price was a bit steep, however, for a special occasion it is fine. The only thing that was not great were the cocktails. They had way to much mint. Otherwise, it was a great evening.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
A couple nits on an ontherwise great experience:
1. The green beans were overcooked
2. All the dishes were too salty and I love a lot of salt!
On the positive side, the mixed greens salad w/ shaved parmesean was a bit overdressed but otherwise, the best salad on earth! Awsm!!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent dinner before a concert
Love this gem! Fun drinks (loved the martini w/ lavendar bitters!), excellent food, phenomenal service!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated my mothers 60th birthday here and WOW! Stella hit it out of the park. I got there early (hosts were awesome!) and had a drink at the bar (a lillet martini) that my bartender Kayla masterfully prepared. In fact, all of the cocktails we had were absolutely superb.
Dinner followed and once again our server (Alicen) did a wonderful job. She was careful to be friendly and engaging w/o pushing her way into the dinner. The food was outstanding, the new chef (M. Aust) has stepped the food to the next level, bringing refinement and sophistication to a menu already known for its delicious flavor and forward thinking construction.
I'll be back for the holidays, and I'm already making my Stella reservations!

Great Anniversary Dinner
Atmosphere was casual yet elegant. Bruscetta trio was great, stuffed pork chop was awesome! For dessert we had The Cappuccino the owner delivered it to our table, it was amazing if you like chocolate.

First visit was a charm
Visited Stella on the recommendation of a friend...the recommendation was right on. Seated promptly at the time of our reservation, service was great and my entire party was pleased with our food selections. I love traditional Italian food, but this Chef has found a way to deviate just enough to make an interesting plate for which we will return.

Great food, loved the atmosphere
Tucked into Midtown, an up and coming scene in OKC, Stella was fantastic. The bread they serve at the table is delicious, a very good indicator of things to come. We had 4 in our party, and 3 of us ordered pizza. I highly recommend the prime rib with the caramelized onions and gorgonzola, the combination of the sweet and savory was divine. The smoked salmon pizza was also delicious, and the standard meat pizza was great. Our 4th was vegan, and she had the polenta with mushrooms and wild greens and it was also amazing. They had quite a bar selection, the peach old fashioned and the jasmine martini were both wonderful. Great atmosphere, declious food. Highly recommend.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went to Stella to celebrate our anniversary. We spent over $100 and left very satisfied. The menu changes with the season so they are always using fresh ingredients. The atmosphere is modern, the food is fancy, and the service was friendly. We will be back.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love, love love this restaurant! Delicious food and nice atmosphere.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was delicious, server
The food was delicious, server was not pushy and was very helpful.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The first thing I noticed
The first thing I noticed was Stella's diverse wine list with many bottles offered at reasonable prices. I was impressed that our bottle was poured using a decanter, something you don't see often at restaurants in OKC. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable but not overbearing. He greatly contributed to our overall dining experience. The seafood and chicken pastas were excellent. The only slight disappointment was their blueberry tort; it seemed a bit soggy. Beyond that, though, my date and I would highly recommend this place for a romantic dinner.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a Solid
Stella is always a good choice for great food and a nice glass of wine. Always love trying the specials. Grilled grouper this time was very good.

Old friends from out of town
Old friends from out of town (D.C. and Dallas) getting together with lots to talk about. They were duly impressed! wait staff was terrific. Had a splendid evening and the food as usual was great..

5 star review
My second visit was just as good as my first. Nice atmosphere, great food and wine and desserts, and great service by a pleasant young man named Jared. We will return and will highly recommend Stella to others.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Loved everything about this place
Especially the Italian wedding soup
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Got it right
Our entrees were delivered, one of which was incorrect. While waiting to catch the eye of our server, another server brings out the correct one. They had figured it out...brought the correct one, hot and perfect. Good eye for service!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had a quick dinner before
We had a quick dinner before a concert and it was delicious. Everyone had a different meal and all were delighted. I had salmon which was cooked exactly as I requested. The grilled salmon was on top of a medley of winter vegetables that I loved. A type of bacon was included in the "hash" of vegetables which gave it a great flavor. Other than the bacon, it was all healthily as well as extremely tasty. And we were out in time for our concert.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Place, Great Food
We try to eat here at least once a month. Never disappointed. The food is always excellent, the servers know the menu and wine list. We always enjoy the evening.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Dinner before theater
The atmosphere is wonderful! Quiet, subdued lighting, comfortable, elegantly decorated. The service was excellent; knowledgable, tasteful uniforms, very polite. The food was amazing! I had the butternut squash with risotto and it was amazing! One of my friends had the butternut squash or pumpkin soup, all was very very good!
Had reservation, got in immediately to good seating.
Will come again!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Have been going to this restaurant since they opened and they have refined their menu with consistently wonderful foods. They have a great Sunday brunch too!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Will Return Many Times
We live about 4 hours from OKC but our daughter attends school nearby and I go to OKC occasionally on business. We first tried Stella's 3 weeks ago on the recommendation of a friend and loved it. We returned this trip to OKC and I have a group dinner arranged there this coming week on a business trip. The menu is inventive and excellent. Food and service are great. Great location in a vibrant restaurant area near a very nice residential area and near downtown. I'd recommend highly. Prices are very reasonable also.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We ate at Stella Sat. night. The risotto served in the acorn squash was BEYOND! Wine selection by the glass was very good.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Stella's was fabulous! First time going with friends, the food was breakfast/lunch. Everyone picked something different from the special of the day, to a brunch item, to lunch! Everything we had was wonderful, they also have mimosas and a "bloody-mary bar" (do it yourself). We were there celebrating a birthday and we had great service from our server, and the ambiance was perfect for a Sunday, mid-morning brunch! Definitely will be going back for lunch-lunch next time, because their pizzas looked great!
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Tasty, but over priced.
Heard the advertisement on the radio and decided to go check it out with my husband and visiting son and his wife. The soup was quite tasty and bread amazing. Entrees were pleasant, but pricey. Bread pudding was yummy. The four of us created a bill over $100 with two of us drinking water only and two of us shared an entree. Might go again to celebrate an occasion, but not just for a random dining experience.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, starters too big
New to Stella's and pleased with our dinners with one exception . The starters were each large enough for three the wait staff needs to tell customers this!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Stella's Nite out
We liked the restaurant so much it will now be our Symphony night out restaurant (we are season ticket holders so we will be back here frequently). The wife and I just loved it. The hardest thing to decide was what to order. Simply outstanding. We are planning to work our way through the menu!
