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 Melissa Aust 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.

The food at Stella’s was delicious. The appetizer was perfect to start with the drinks my fiancée and I had were made beautifully. Our waitress was wonderful and accommodating, she helped us with our food selection and did not disappoint. I felt the price was worth everything that we had, my tomahawk pork chop was cooked perfectly. I would recommend eating here in a heartbeat. I will be back for sure.

We had a great time. Lori accommodated us with an earlier time slot when we called to amend our reservation. We enjoyed the 4 course Valentine menu. Everything was fantastic.

We met for brunch prior to going to the Broadway show downtown. My husband had the most amazing pork chops and I had crabcake holidays. They were both exceptional as was the service. We will go back!

Their name is ”modern” Italian cuisine. I was not prepared to see tortellini looking like Chinese dumplings.

Great cheese plate, very tasty soup, veal shank was tender and flavorful, swordfish was very well prepared. Desert of the “Candybar” was amazing!

Food was not good. The spicy sauce was sweet and not much meat in the dish. Also very cold in the restaurant.

My wife and I had the bone in pork chop with sweet potato and the Italian sausage pasta. Both delicious. We always enjoy the pre meal bread and the service is great.

Seated near the kitchen so noise was unpleasant, not loud but not what I want to hear. Hostess was not particularly welcoming, again not rude but not welcoming. Servers were very good. Food was good.

It has been a while since we've been in and noticed the menu changed. It would've been nice to have a few traditional options along with the other choices.

Probably my favorite place in OKC. Everything here is delicious. Great service. The chef is a doll. Bistro Italian inspired dishes with a seasonal and local twist. Great for intimate dining with close friends and loved ones.

It was underwhelming. The food, though tasty, lacked flavor when compared to other restaurants (especially Italian restaurants) in the area. The decor is pleasant.

Great food and service. Today was their “Gospel Brunch” which means we were entertained by three fantastic voices for a couple of hours! Plan to go back.

I attended a lunch at this restaurant and was so pleased with the food that I returned with friends for a Saturday night dinner. I ordered the same dish, eager to enjoy it as much as I had during my previous visit. The pasta itself was nicely done, but it was bland and very inconsistent with the lunch version. It was difficult to pay $19 for a plate of pasta that tasted like... plain pasta. The service was fine but not excellent, also in contrast to the lunch experience. I like the intimacy and ambience of this restaurant, but when the food isn't great, it ain't worth the considerable price in a town with a seemingly ever-growing array of restaurants to choose from.

Stella is one of my "go-to" places. I can always count on great food and a fun wine list. Most of my favorites are still on the menu, including the lentil goat cheese salad, but they are always adding new creative dishes each season. I've never had a bad experience!

Fabulous meal in such a beautifully designed environment. The flat breads are the best in town and their new menu is fantastic. Highly recommend the sea bass. It was superb. Always recommend this OKC gem, it is consistently good with a great hip urban environment. Our teenage children love it.
