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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
