A word from Stella Rossa Ristorante, Wine Bar and Pizzeria
Stella Rossa is a bustling burst of Italian flavor and energy. The lively atmosphere is perfect for sharing a meal with friends or family, or for a late night snack. The dynamic bar provides a vibrant venue for sampling from a selection of 50 Italian wines served by the bottle or quartino. Begin your meal with a sampling of Italian meats, cheeses and olives. Next, try several of our signature hot and cold small plates. Then, choose from a selection of our wood-fired pizzas and pastas, or one of our signature entrees.

Dave Magrogan has spent three years searching for the perfect location and the perfect chef to create his authentic Italian concept, Stella Rossa. Chef Anthony DiPascale was exactly what Magrogan needed to create his ideal Italian Ristorante and wine bar. Chef Anthony grew up in South Philadelphia and in a family butcher shop. After years at Lambertis and several award winning Italian restaurants he has been brought to DMG to share his talents.

Diner Reviews
  • "I had the mushroom bianca pizza, it was amazing! I love sitting on the outdoor patio overlooking the river. I really enjoy visiting Stella Rossa."

  • "A year after it's opening, I still love Stella Rossa - great Italian food selection, great atmosphere, super friendly staff. I think it's a cool place!"

  • "The only interesting item we ordered was the Arancini - rice balls with red sauce. Unfortunately the 'red' sauce is basic, acidic and boring whether served over spaghetti or the eggplant parm it smothered. The Atlantic Salmon with pasta was served with the quietest olive oil as to be bland. There are other local establishments that really 'do it better'. We expect more from any restaurant. We probably won't be back."

  • "The food was excellent (chicken Parm, pasta with clams. pasta with crabs, veggie lasagna), service was fantastic and the martini with Italian water ice was a hit. We will be going back for sure."

  • "Our waiter was excellent. Good suggestions on wine. My "veggie Pizza" was really an olive pizza...didn't like that too much. My husband had a pasta dish that was excellent. I will try it again and opt for pasta next time. I think it's worth a try....."

  • "Loved the atmosphere, service was prompt. Food was not exceptional but pretty good. Outdoor dining overlooking creek was full when we arrived so we ate inside which was still very nice. Everyone found beer or wine they were happy with. Id definitely go again."

  • "More umbrellas should be put outside. The outdoor seating is great but people don't want to be sitting in direct sunlight, not all the tables had umbrellas."

  • "This is the second time we have been to Stella Rosa. The first time was for lunch whereas we had some great sandwiches and pizza! However, we were very disappointed by the dinner menu. First, we expected a salad to come with each pasta meal. We ended up spending an extra $16 just for salads, which is extremely excessive for the small side salads that were brought out! Second, the food portions were very small. Finally, it was evident the meatballs and chicken were frozen and not fresh. My husband manages a restaurant and he was able to pick this out immediately upon taking the first bite. With that being said, we will not be returning for dinner. However, we are looking forward to picking up up some pizzas in the near future!"

  • "WE were a group of 8, which can be intimidating or cramped...but SR handled it well, accommodating our request for a table by the rail so our guests could enjoy the view. Food great, service well-paced. Thank you!"

  • "My husband ordered the sausage and pepper entree and was very disappointed. One sausage, hardly any peppers and too much bow-tie pasta. Not much flavor at all and very watery broth. The calamari appetizer had not many calamari but a lot of fried peppers. We also had tomato and mozzarella appetizer which was just OK. The other three of us were ok with our dinners which were the eggplant and the the ravioli. "

  • "great looking place and good food but our server was not on her game at all. because we had an excellent server in the past will go again, esp since they have 1/2 price pizza mon nights"

  • "My husband and I ate outside overlooking the river, and it was a beautiful night. The food was fabulous (I highly recommend the shrimp scampi!), and our waiter was wonderful too. We will most definitely be going back!"

  • "Service was horrible. Went for Mother's Day. Will never go to this restaurant again because of the service we received. "

  • "Really had an unfortunate dining experience the other evening. We asked to sit outside and apparently no one told the waitress that we were there. Waited 15 minutes and finally went in to the bar to order our own cocktails. Waitress finally found us and apologized. We ordered from the menu only to find out later that they were offering half off pizzas that. Instead we dined on sub par salads and again had to help ourselves to get the pepper grinder from the busing station as no one asked if we needed anything after being served. Disappointed by the whole evening which is a shame as we have had good times here in the past."

  • "My friends invited me here for my birthday dinner. The service was good, the bread was good, the dessert was very good. The entree was OK. The marinara sause didn't really have much taste and the lobster and linguine didn't have much lobster. So I was disappointed with my meal. They both seemed to enjoy their meals. So I am not sure what to say overall."

  • "I dine out a lot. My brother recommended that we take a Mother there for her 89th birthday. I made the reservations four days in advance for 6 adults . My wife and I arrived first Bd they put us in first booth near the front door. When the rest of my party arrived the booth ended up to be very cramped . The food had no taste very bland . They had no type of cake for dessert , I had hoped that had a piece of cake with a candle for Mom but no success. I will not be dining there again "

  • "Food was, as always, fantastic and arrived at our without a long wait. Our server was inattentive and hardly ever checked back with us during our entire dining experience. It was disappointing because we brought out of town guests and our dining experience wasn't five-star."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Our first time there. I had heard bad things about the restaurant but they were all wrong. The food was excellant. Service was a little slow but that was okay. We weren't in a hurry. My only complaint... the ceaser salad was a little limp. We will definately go back!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Been here several times and it has always been good. Will try the outside seating on our next visit as it looked nice. Will be returning next week. "

  • "A disaster. It's so simple- We are a restaurant- our job is to feed people. This was a buffet. There was not enough food. Ex. I went up to get scrambled eggs- I had to scrape the pan. The sausage was not cooked completely as if to get it out fast. No bread. No butter. No deserts. They ran out of prime rib. No PIZZA!!! They ran out. What was going on?!?! Other groups complained too- Where's the food? Unbelievable at $27.95 per head!! The waitress was very nice but charm is not what we came for completely. I came back after a second trip with a small side of vodka noodles which I had to scrape from the pan. We spoke to the manager and he was so sorry- not enough food. Sorry is not enough. Gordan Ramsey would have had a field day!.beep."

  • "Every time I eat at Stella Rossa, I not only enjoy it, but get the feeling I have consumed healthy food. It's not that we're taking about health food, just good, wholesome Mediterranean style cooking that satisfies without giving one the feeling that he has truly overdone it. Always delicious and always filling without the guilt."

  • "Food was great... a bit noisy, but we were in the wine room which helped Had the Salume Pizza which was a real treat. "

  • "After searching for a restaurant that did NOT have a brunch for Mother's Day, I chose Stella Rossa because of their extensive gluten-free menu. I was extremely disappointed when we arrived to find brunch instead! I was informed that they posted the change on Facebook, however I booked through their website, which did not list it. The saving grace here was that the chef did accommodate my wife from the gluten free menu. And let me say, her meal was delicious! The brunch (like most, in my opinion) was lacking, and ran out of favored items. It was also overpriced at $25 for the selection of over heated items available. I'm still going to give this restaurant a plus for their non-buffet food, and look forward to trying the real menu some day."

  • "Had several great meals here but I would not recommend for brunch. The food was all on the cold side."

  • "Have only been at this restaurant once. My wife and I enjoyed the food and atmosphere. It is very clean and the service very good. Seems to be a restaurant where it is very conducive for a group of people and at the same time for an intimate dinner. The prices are reasonable for the quality of food and there is a good selection on the drink menu. Would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Everything ok, except; four of our party asked for three olives with their vodka martinis.. they received one and it was not easy getting more. Same with their good bread and a small, small piece of tomato pie (bite size) waitress was nervous asking for more."

  • "Very high quality food with artful presentation. Very affordable for this quality bracket. Unique atmosphere in a repurposed paper recycling plant. Sophisticated but casual atmosphere. High energy vibe. Best pizza we've had outside Italy."

  • "My wife and I went here for our anniversary. We had a few drinks at the bar before dinner. The two lady bartenders were friendly, Don't remember their names. Food was very good. The place was a little loud but was still able to converse. Rest rooms were very clean."

  • "I love this restaurant for a quick spare of the moment dinner or a special planned event. After watching the staff pull everything all together each night, you can see that they take great care of the patrons. The staff is energetic and very caring. There is a bit of everything on the menu and anything you order is very tasty and fulfilling. The prices are right for the amount of food served and they are also comparable to the area. I love it that the food is top notch, but I can still wear jeans to dinner!"
