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.

We started by ordering the Meatball Appetizer which was AMAZING! I then ordered the Tomahawk Pork Chop and my wife ordered the Filet. My wife enjoyed hers but I was completely blown away by the Pork Chop as soon as it arrived! The Chief behind this Tomahawk Pork Chop recipe deserves a metal because it was the absolute BEST I’ve ever had! They combine the 3 different unique flavors of the Pork Chop, Bacon Chard with Pickled Onions that all compliment each other in an AMAZING way! I highly recommend EVERYONE try this dish! Thank you!!!

Ok meal. Nothing special. Sent back my main because it was cold - pasta itself wasn’t hot and the sauce was cold in areas. They corrected it - or ‘threw it back in the skillet’ according to the server. It was an improvement, but not by much.

We loved everything about Stella. Great vibe. Amazing food. Had the tenderloin flat bread as an appetizer then each had (and of course shared) a different pasta. All was fresh and flavorful. Modern Italian at its best.

A beautiful restaurant in a great part of town. The service was great, the food was delicious, and a nice menu. Definitely check this place out for a higher-end Italian-style dinner.

Everything was great! We had requested a server we had previously and we were easily accommodated. Van is an amazing server and took care of us the whole evening. Stella’s has been a great find for us and feels like a secret tucked away in Midtown OKC. The lamb shank was everyone’s favorite. The crab dip appetizer was also amazing! We’ve enjoyed our experiences there!

Had to send multiple items back. One child dish, pancakes still had batter not cooked all the way. Adult pizza is actually a flatbread tostada type base very thin and hard, not pizza. Replacement was burger, center was raw with blood. After waiting a long time the first round, then everyone complete before replacement came, was not about to send it back again. No manager check in, waiter could care less about less than satisfactory food. I did not think of it at the time to get a photo of first two items returned.

One of our favorite places in OKC. We had a rough day with our granddaughter in Children's Hospital and this Friday evening meal was the relaxation we needed. Great food. Great service.

Enjoyed this restaurant again! Started with their baked crab dip appetizer- it's good. The wine by the glass has some very nice choices.

'Max a Million' is one of our favorite servers in OKC- he does a wonderful job.

Ordered the wild boar bolognese for dinner- it's delicious. Will order again.

Max suggested the Stella Candy Bar for dessert... it's very good!!!

Enjoyable evening here!

My husband and I went there for our Anniversary dinner. My duck was amazing but my husbands steak had to be returned. The second steak still full of gristle and a bad cut of meat. He could not eat it and we brought it home to the dogs. After having already returned one steak, we did not say anything but left a note on the charge slip regarding the bad cut of steak.

We went here for a much needed date night, sans kids. We had dressed pretty nice, but a lot of other people were dressed in T-shirt’s and sweats or jeans. And even baseball hats. I felt overdressed for an upscale restaurant. We were placed in a bright, noisy area...not the best ambience for a “romantic” evening. And the service was pretty slow and pricey. Our server was really nice, but we didn’t get our food in a timely manner (we waited over 30 minutes from the time we ordered). And he said that he put the wrong table number on our order, so the wait staff kept giving our food to other tables.

We hadn't been to Stella in a while, as our last experience the food was just okay. Well last night they were back on their game. We had pizza, pasta, salmon, and a brie app. All were fantastic! I love Stella for lunch, since they have a great pizza special. I'm hoping they are back open for lunch again.

We showed up about 15 minutes early for our reservation and they got us seated right away, which was nice. The food was really good. I definitely recommend that baked Brie as starter. It was really good and then for the main dish I got the duck breast and was really impressed with it. Great place for a nice date night or special occasion.

Our early Valentine's dinner was wonderful from the lobster pizza to the wild boar bolognese. We were surprised at how many people were there at such an early dinner time but we assume the impending blizzard drove more folks to come on the 13th instead. The food was excellent, the waitstaff absolutely helpful and attentive, and my only ever complaint about Stella is that it's always a wee bit chilly in there!

A little overpriced for the food quality and quantity. The meatball appetizer was over cooked and tasted like microwave meatballs. The cheese and meat tray appetizer was a better deal. The pasta meals my wife and son got were satisfactory. Menu was small with no chicken parm or eggplant parm for an Italian restaurant. It sure if it will be a repeat or not yet.
