Love it. Specially spinach Gnocci was perfect.
The food is always delicious. Portions are large. The service is attentive and friendly. This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area.
Charming quaint restaurant out of the way. Very local spot with lots of regulars and absolutely delicious food.
It is always a special occasion when we dine at La Stanza, even if it is a Sunday and everyday dining. The food is excellent, the service is too.
The food was probably the most delicious Italian food we ever had! The service was so friendly and helpful; just a great place to eat!
Took my daughter on a date night and she was treated like royalty. The service was excellent and so friendly. They made her feel so special and she loved the food and especially the dessert.
Love the restaurant
Loved the food! The service was excellent. This was our first visit and we’ll definitely go back. My husband ordered a NA beer, which he was told they ran out of. Ten minutes later the server approached our table with one, saying they found more and asking him if it was cold enough. It would have been easy for her to forget about that order but she persisted to fill it. The bresola with arugula was delicious. The ravioli in white sauce was scrumptious; the ravioli were cooked perfectly. Even the bread and dipping sauce, delivered when we sat down, were flavorful and fresh. And the prices were very reasonable, especially for the food quality.
Wonderful food; great value for the dollar. Hidden location that has a lot to offer.
La Stanza's kitchen turns out a variety of unique pastas and appetizers. This is the 2nd time we've been there, and the consistency of the kitchen is impressive. I'd rank it as the best Italian restaurant in the South Bay. For a small neighborhood restaurant it can't be beat. Service is friendly and professional. Even on a Sunday night, the place was full and there was a continuous number of take-out orders being picked up. Seems like La Stanza's reputation is spreading, and they are getting a loyal following. That's great to see.
Just like my Nonna’s kitchen !!
Our favorite Italian restaurant in the area. Amazing food and terrific service!
Great time great food!
Staff attentive and friendly!
White tablecloths, attentive staff, reasonable prices and wonderful food. Outstanding!
We feel so fortunate to have discovered this jewel of a restaurant. It is our favorite.
Our first time to this restaurant and we LOVED it. Everyone there went out of their way to make our dining experience exceptional. Great private room, delicious food, help with a birthday dessert, accommodated a special order request. Cannot say enough good things. I wish we lived closer to this restaurant!! Can't wait to go back and will recommend to my Menlo Park friends.
Friends get together with
Birthday celebration. Waiter brought a complimentary tiramisu which was very nice and delicious. Waiter was very nice and good service. We didn’t get our coffee in time with desert but a gentle reminder got it to us eventually. Enjoyable experience. Casual atmosphere.
Very nice neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. A real find!
Superb Italian neighborhood restaurant.
Excellent food and friendly service!
Not many options in our area. Glad…so glad La Stanza showed up and endured during the dark days of Covid. Hats off to the entire team!
Best pasta place ever!
Exquisite really authentic Italian dishes, terrific starters and desserts, nice (and reasonable) wines--a weekly go-to place, homey and unpretentious
Great little place with amazing food, fair price and friendly service
As always, love the servers, the attention, amazing food and ease of reservations… it’s our go to Italian restaurant!
Great food, excellent service, nice/homey atmosphere.
When we arrived for our 5:30 reservation it was quiet so we chose to sit inside. Unfortunately for us, it took only a short time before it was a full house and the noise level increased dramatically.
Food is outstanding - we've never had an even slightly less than outstanding meal there. Unassuming place, off the beaten track location, something you might just walk by but stop in and promise you'll enjoy.
Love the great food, friendly servers, and ease of reservations. Glad to have a restaurant close by to rely on for good Italian food!
Excellent, fresh, authentic food. Small, intimate atmosphere.
I wanted to love the restaurant, which I did, but not the main course. I ordered swordfish undercooked. Unfortunately it was not, so was tough and fairly dry. Presentation and vegetables were beautiful. My friend’s rigatoni was “too al Dente” for her. Wine by the glass very good, salad delicious and gelato creamy and yummy.
The waiter was attentive and friendly. He did not charge us for the swordfish, which I appreciated We definitely will try LaStanza again.
The menu is outstanding--and they can deliver. No matter what you order, each dish is well prepared.
We love this restaurant. the food and service never disappoints. I only gave three stars to the ambiance because we eat outside on the sidewalk due to COVID fears but the interior looks cosy and nice.
I love this restaurant! The food is wonderful and the atmosphere like a neighborhood restaurant should be. The chef comes out to greet you and his apron is proof that he has been in the kitchen. I had the gnocchi with a truffle cream sauce and my spouse had pork tenderloin in a porcini mushroom sauce. The waitstaff are kind and attentive. We are so lucky to have this restaurant near by.
Wonderful quiet little place with consistently great food and service. Secret gem in the neighborhood. Very friendly staff
Wonderful experience. Great food, great service. Can’t wait to go back!
We lived in Italy for four years and really struggled to find Italian food of the same quality in the US. In La Stanza Cucina we found it! It was a wonderful place to celebrate my husband's birthday. We'll definitely be back!
Wonderful meal. Very good food. Quiet. Friendly staff. Our favorite Italian restaurant.
