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.

The best Italian food I’ve had in Oklahoma City, wouldn’t necessarily bring kids or very picky eaters, but their take on modern Italian is fantastic. and the dessert is outstanding.

Our server (I forgot her name but she had brown hair in a ponytail with glasses) was amazing! She was so sweet and her service was awesome. I had friends visiting from North Carolina who hadn’t really been to OKC before, and they were only here for one night. During our experience with our server, they commented on how nice and great the service in OKC was and how she made them love their dining experience in OKC! She was awesome!

The food was very good and our server was excellent. Anna was only three shifts out of training but she was very friendly and had a great attitude. My wife ran her and the manager a bit ragged trying to find a wine she liked but they never showed any frustration.

Me and my wife probably just did not order the entrees but they were both not really for us. Italian sausage came with noodles in what seemed like just water. Smoked chicken lasagna sounded amazing but had zero sauce and wound up tasting really bizarre with the smoked flavor and pesto. The cheese and meat appetizer and desserts saved the day, a little.

We had an early (5:00) reservation on New Year's Eve. Due to it being an early seating I tried to understand the presence of young children at the next table. However when your staff allowed a child to lay on the floor and wander near our table, I felt annoyed and distracted from fully enjoying my meal.
All other aspects of my dining experience - food, service, etc were very good

The restaurant has a cool vibe and they accommodated group of 12 for a Bday, which was nice . Take wait staff all wore masks and masks were suggested, also nice. The food at our end of the table was lackluster and needed more seasoning. The Brie appetizer was so tiny and the bread served with it was so hard you couldn’t bite into it. The meatball appetizer had good flavor but they were way over cooked and hard to eat . We also got the Italian wedding soup which had no flavor at all and very little of anything but broth and chicken . Very pricey for the food we received. The other end of the table had better luck with their food . The staff was very accommodating.

The food, wine and service were all wonderful. Unfortunately, we were seated in the room to the south where a fairly large group were having some kind of get-together. They were standing around their tables, talking and drinking, which I'm sure was wonderful for them but intrusive on the other guests in the room.

Overall I would say that as a dining experience this met expectations. The atmosphere and staff were top notch. The food was good, but was maybe not as impressive as we had hoped. We had two pasta dishes and the risotto. The cocktails were excellent. I would not recommend this place if you are expecting “traditional” Italian, the dishes are definitely a more modern take.

Had a fabulous dinner with my kids to kick off holiday festivities. The waiter provided great recommendations on wine and food. My salmon was perfectly prepared, the risotto was the right balance of creaminess and flavor and the pork chop was a hit.

Thanks for a great night.

There were so many fabulous options that my friend and I opted to share everything so we could try more items. We had a fantastic baked Brie appetizer, a flatbread pizza with chicken, bacon, fontina cheese, and squash (which may sound odd, but was fabulous!), polenta, and splurged with a candy bar dessert!! We were pleasantly full, tasted more food than if we had each ordered an entree, and each of our bills was under $30.
