Stella Modern Italian Cuisine specializes in fresh seasonal menus featuring local and organic ingredients when possible. The wood burning oven is the heart of the restaurant, producing Roman style pizza and the majority of the menu. Our culinary team led by Executive Chef Chris McKenna has created a modern menu using ideas that begin with traditional Italian dishes. The wine list is an interesting group of Italian and American wines personally selected by owner/operator Lori Burson.

HOLY CANNOLI!!! Chef McKenna and his entire team served us a simply stellar meal, mostly off-menu, and each course personally delivered by Chef. Simply blown away. Hector, our bartender, suggested the absolute perfect wine, and the cocktails were nothing less than yumazing. To say we were blown away is the understatement of the century!!!

Out of Towner looking for a great Italian place....Found it! Went back twice to get some of the best Italian food I have had in awhile! Sat at the bar and enjoyed Joe and Isaac! Thank you for two lovely evenings!

Disappointed. I have a good friend that loves Stella. I really wanted to love it too. But it was just okay and pricey for just okay. We started off with charcuterie. Waiter asked if we wanted cheese. Yes please. Adding cheese is pricey but the cheese was by far the best part of the evening. Wonderful selection. They brought it out. No mention of what was on the board. Was something made in house? What are the curred meats and cheeses? Disappointmemt #1. Then we sat and enjoyed and finally were stuffed. No sign of food. We waited with lots of drink refills. No food. Finally the waiter comes over and asked for our order again because they lost the ticket. Disappointment #2. Did you not write down our order? There are just 2 of us. So finally our food comes out. My Italian Sausage Pasta is so strongly laced with fennel that my son can also smell it from his seat and over his own meal. It's a complete bomb of fennel. I like fennel. But that quantity ruins a meal. Presentation was like being served a bowl of pasta at home. Nothing special. No mention of the locally made pasta that my friend raves about. It was simply disappointing. Waiter never checked on us to see how the food was. No apology for the long wait for our food. Disappointment #3-7. $94 for a charcuterie we knew nothing about and 2 bowls of pasta. I will give Stella one other chance at a later date, then I'm done and won't recommend.

One of the best places to eat & drink in Oklahoma City - Stella's, has a great menu from pizza to Italian dishes, to their Tomahawk Pork Chop. The wine list is extensive & very, very well priced. It is always a great time with great service.

This is the best Italian restaurant in OKC. The food was delicious, the staff were friendly, and the restaurant did adhere to all CDC guidelines for cleanliness. Perfect spot to relax and enjoy a glass of wine with incredible food.

Stella is hands down one of our favorite restaurants in OKC. The food and service are consistent with imaginative menu items and specials. The fruit and prosciotto pizza is so light with a spicy honey that adds just the right amount of kick.

Third time I have visited . Had the lamb ragout and the soft shell crab special . The crab was greasy. The portions on both entrees were tiny especially for the price . Waiter was attentive until we were ready to order and then we had to grab his attention . The desserts were phenomenal however . Not giving up yet . May have been an off night

SEGRAGATED. Reserved a table for my wife's birthday. The owner seated us at a small side room at a table that afforded no view of, nor could be seen by the rest of the restaurant.
Later on she sat a young couple,one who was Asian, the other African American in the same room. Towards the end of our meal an African American lady was sat at the table across from us.
We took purview of the main area of the restaurant and there were no other minorities seated there. When we brought this up to the owner she stated it was coincidental and that her staff staff was diverse. Really? What restaurant staff isn't.
Being a proud Latino, an American citizen, and a 22 year Air Force veteran; I felt affronted but still gave her the benefit of the doubt.
That is till later that evening, while enjoying the view from the window of my hotel room at the Marriott Ambassador, I realized that while all the other windows looking into the restaurant were open to let by passersby look in, at the room where Stella sits their minority customers, the curtains are kept shut.

My dinner, when served, was barely warm. Our waitress was not attentive and rarely appeared to tend to us. Other staff appeared at our table more often than our waitress. This is a favorite place of ours and a place we look forward to visiting. The hostess and maybe manager was wonderful and attentive. This was an unusual and disappointing experience.
