    We had a wonderful evening at La Stella. From start to finish you are treated like old friends. Beautiful inside and out, the makes of a special evening. The drinks were delicious and classy. The food melted in your mouth. Fresh, not over seasoned and the authentic Italian you would find off the beaten path of Italy. My dear friend was able to use her Italian with the maître d’ which made it all the more personable. If you are looking for a fabulous night out, I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Our family of 6 was here for a birthday dinner, complete with 3 teens. Communication prior to our reservation with the restaurant was great as I confirmed a few details about dessert. The bread and meatballs were great starters for our picky teens. The pasta was fantastic. My only suggestion for the restaurant would be the option of a few smaller simple pasta sides for those of us who eat a little lighter or dine early with kids.

    It was a fabulous dinner we had at La Stella. I would strongly recommend this place as not only was service excellent but food was exceptional. Ricardo really helped us get a table we needed and without him we wouldn’t be able to go on Nee Year’s Eve. He is an amazing owner.

    Absolutely incredible. My wife and I pride ourselves on trying the best restaurants in Dallas. La Stella is by far your best choice when it comes to Italian cuisine. Don’t listen to the hype about Lucia. The service, ambiance, and of course the food were all top notch.

    The food was decent for the cost, but the service was really unacceptably slow. Multiple times we had to find a member of wait staff to tell them we were ready to order drinks/food and to get the check.

    My fiancé and I had date night here. The ambiance is endearing and romantic, though not stuffy nor uptight. The staff is personable and very welcoming. The menu has been impeccably selected capturing Italy’s true essence which is simplicity and absolute freshness in their ingredients. Also, you heard it here, the branzino is better than at Carbone.

    Beautiful evening at La Stella Cucina Verace. Excellent food from antipasto, primi piatti, secondi, to the desserts and cafe in the end. One of the best upscale yet not over-the-top so Italians in town.

    My wife and I decided to try La Stella Cucina for our anniversary. I don’t usually leave restaurant reviews, but I feel compelled this time due to my experience. 1. Staff - the entire staff was polite and professional. Our waiter was great when he was attending to us, but he also had about 6 or 7 other tables he was attending. So, our service was incredibly slow and a bit frustrating. Not blaming the waiter, but there definitely could’ve been a better balance of staff. Not ruling out that the restaurant was potentially short staffed or had an unexpected dinner rush. 2. Cocktails - I only ordered one drink and that was their signature old fashioned. It had way too many bitters in it and was very unpleasant to drink. I asked the waiter to have the bartender make it sweeter, but it still tasted unpleasant. I should’ve told them to make me another one or a different cocktail, but I hate being a complicated customer, especially when staff is overwhelmed. So, I just kept the drink and dealt with the taste. Definitely not worth the $18, but this one is probably my fault for not requesting another drink. 3. Food - the food was okay. We are gluttons, so we started with the Risotto Milanese ($18). Then for the entree, my wife had the Pappardelle Stellari ($40) and I had the Genovese Della Mamma ($35). All three dishes were signature items, as indicated on the menu; they tasted good, but not spectacular or worth the price point. We love authentic Italian food and have had much better for less at other restaurants. The thought of “maybe I should’ve ordered something else”, should never cross your mind at an upscale restaurant. 4. Ambiance - the aesthetic and lighting in the restaurant was pleasant. We absolutely loved the rope light fixtures above some tables. The restaurant was clean and seats were comfortable. No complaints about the restaurant setting itself. Definitely makes for a great date night picture. If you’ve read this far, thank you. I hope this is helpful.

    Definitely delicious food and great ambiance. Prices are a premium considering portions and alcohol pours. Old Fashion was $18 and pour was maybe 1.5 ounces of bourbon….maybe. My wife’s pasta was $31 with no protein and looked like a small child’s plate; but delicious. Conclusion….great food, service, and ambiance; just over valued. Not sure we will go back.
