Fresh pasta, flavorful dishes, fresh ingredients, great atmosphere, attentive and knowledgeable waiter... I had a great time at Stanza! I strongly recommend it.
I was sadly disappointed with our visit, and quite frankly embarrassed! My husband had two clients in town and wanted to take them to a nice restaurant! We have always had a great experience at Stanza, but this time our service was poor! It took our waitress forever to even come and get our drink order, and then our food order. I was embarrassed because when you take clients, you want to have a great experience! Part of eating out is the experience, which the service has a big role in that! We will still come back, Stanza is a great restaurant with great food and usually experience as well! I love how they do the 2.5 oz pours, that is such a great idea!!! Great drink selections!!
The best dinner in Utah!! We keep coming back and we are always impressed. We hope Stanza comes to Los Angeles!! It’s so good!
Our server was very helpful in selecting our food choices. Our table was cleaned in between dishes. Water was always full - conversation was great but not too overwhelming. The food was of the highest quality and perfectly prepared. We loved our entire dining experience! The music playing was exceptionally phenomenal as well.
The day I booked our reservation, someone from Stanza called me and asked if we had food allergies or diet restrictions. My boyfriend and I go out to try many different restaurants (always on the hunt for the best) and we have NEVER had that happen before... webthought that was pretty amazing and were quite impressed. The food was delicious and we are PICKY foodies. Definitely going to be back.
Had a great experience. Loved the Burrata, prosciutto and melon salad. Pastas were great, my 10 year old loved the Bolognese. Will definitely be back
The appetizer and food was amazing! My date had the salmon, I had the lasagna.
Our anniversary date night at Stanza was a great experience! This being a monday night, the restaurant was quiet and we were able to score a table on the patio with just the right angle from the street to enjoy the sunset with a glass of italian rosé!!
The service was really good, and the happy anniversary note they left us a really sweet touch!
And then the food was top notch. From the polenta appetizer, to the lobster pasta or the duck breast, everything was cooked to perfection and super tasty. A note on the duck breast: i am originally from a region in France known for its duck confits and duck products and pretty much grew up eating duck every week or so. So i am very picky about duck! And this passed my test! It was perfectly cooked, still dark pink (nearly rare) on the inside with a crispy layer of fat still attached. Hat’s off! The corn ravioli with the duck was an unexpected but great accompaniment!
We will come back for sure!
A bit expensive for what you get. I don’t think we will go back
Food was on point m. They have a wide variety of flavors within their dishes. We enjoyed the watermelon salad, arancini and eggplant parmesan for appetizers. They were sooo good! Their Sirena house coctail was delicious- I enjoyed three and underestimated their potency ;). We also had the rigatoni Diavolo medium heat with sausage and the ricotta and goat cheese gnocchi. We had leftovers and they were great the next day!
Fantastic gem in downtown Salt Lake. A great place to entertain. Lots of customer attention. Food is fantastic and so is the service. They don't rush you and Keith is the best. Definitely try it.
Great place and vibe
The lunch special menu was confusing. I had no idea I had ordered a pork sandwich, it was too much bread for me and the pork was chewy. The crab bisque soup was wonderful.
The food and service here was outstanding. My business associates were very impressed along with myself. Definitely will refer and return myself.
Some of the best food in Salt Lake if not the best. The halibut was amazing. If you are gluten free they are very good to sub out. Their gluten free pasta is outstanding.
Great, interesting food. I had a chilled roasted grape and goat cheese soup to start that was phenomenal. A little pricey but very good quality. The service was great. Our server had lots of good suggestions and knew when to leave us alone.
We were absolutely delighted with the flavor combinations and quality of the food at Stanza. The chefs are amazing, and the service is top notch. I had the gnocchi and my husband had the lobster linguini. We also tried the clams, calamari, and arancini - all were delicious! Be sure to save room for dessert as well - everything we sampled was mouth-wateringly scrumptious! We'll definitely be back for more meals in the near future!
Phenomenal food and wine list. Raya was an exceptional server and very pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We will be back.
Madison was awesome and food absolutely delicious!
Had dinner on the patio in beautiful weather. Raya was our perfect server. The Beet salad was delicious, as was the duck and ricotta ravioli and the Carbonara!
The salmon was delicious. So beautifully presented, I didn’t want to spoil it. But as luck would have it, I did.
Very consistent in quality makes it a "go to" for us, but the never changing menu is getting a bit old. I'd love to see a transition to a more spring/summer menu and expanding their Italian white and rosé offerings.
We loved our meal at Stanza. The decor, waiters, cooks, hostess are all top notch. Delicious food. We tried the market fish, seafood linguini, and veal. Everything was cooked to perfection and the flavors were unique and well blended. We will definitely eat here again.
A great looking place. We dined outside at 9 on a weeknight so it was quiet. Staff provided service that was efficient, friendly and knowledgeable.
I had carbonara, without any cream, and it was delicious. It was obvious the spaghetti was fresh and it was cooked to al dente perfection. My boyfriend had the steelhead trout and loved his dish as well. We also shared the Caesar salad which was pretty good.
It was our first time to enjoy Stanza. The food and experience was exceptional! We will definitely return for more.
We love Stanza! Delicious food and wine, great service. We missed the Tiramisu it’s the best and needs to come back!
I come to SLC monthly for business and pleasure and always come to Stanza as this is about the only seafood Italian restaurant but also for all the traditional Italian food...
My colleague had the Italian 10 hour beef sandwich which was a daily $15 express lunch. He has been around many top restaurants in Utah and really rated as the best sandwich he has ever had so he would drive down from North Ogden to Stanza for any occasion !
As usual, my colleague and I had the clam vongole lingune which is always the best in SLC....
Food was very good, large wine list. Tapas good sized. Fun, tasty cocktails.
Food is pricey and portions are rather petite! Had to ask for bread (3 times) to help fill us up. Chef does a wonderful job on the flavors, but was expecting a large bowl of pasta. Waitress joked we should go to Olive Garden if we just wanted a large portion. Table needed to be wiped between courses and wasn't. Used our napkin to clean table. Wanted to really like this restaurant, but with poor service, smaller portions and hefty prices I just couldn't! If you have money to burn then by all means do make a reservation!
Great restaurant. We will be back
Place is very open, nice patio. Food was excellent, portions large, you will not leave hungry. Great wine list, would highly recommend it.
A mid-week lunch to celebrate Mother's Day was a success at Stanza. The extensive offerings of small plates and salads was perfect for my mother who has a smaller appetite. Yet, she felt it was a treat as each bite was delicious. She started with the arugula salad, lightly dressed and topped with shaved root vegetables and parmesan. For an entree, she chose from the small plates section of the menu: polenta with atop a delicious tomato-garlic relish, topped with two perfectly beautiful, large shrimp. Hubby was more than content with pasta and bolognese (he claims some of the best in the city). Everyone was happy.
Poor service. Had to ask for bread and olive oil 5 times! Beet salad was brought out with missing ingredients....services ruined the whole dining experience:(. Had been before and everything was good... not this time...probably will not return:(
Excellent cuisine. Wonderful service...not overbearing. Delightful atmosphere
Very pleasant all the way around. We were comfortable and our server was very attentive without disrupting our business discussions. High standard of professionalism.
All top notch. Great food, cocktails and service. Was nice to enjoy the evening on the patio. Not inexpensive, however you get what you pay for we really loved the old Faustian, Stanza is better in every way. Highly recommended to all.
The food was outstanding. The service was a bit slow since she had a very big section and couldn’t be as attentive as she should.
