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.

Had an experienced server working with a new server and though we’re both wonderful. Attentive and were very knowledgeable. I would recommend Stella to anyone looking for great food, exceptional service and a lovely atmosphere.

The atmosphere was great! Our waitress was WONDERFUL! The food was disappointing. My chicken scallopini was served over cold pasta and looked like it was a heavily breaded frozen piece of chicken that was reheated. I am still giving this place four stars because the ambiance was that good.

The service was fantastic however the food was lacking this go round here. The steak was very tough and flavorless. The cucumber gazpacho was fantastic and the lasagna another one of our group had but the rest of our meals were very lacking in flavor. Unfortunate for the price we paid.

For those of you stuck in the Ludivine, Metro, Patrono, Vast loop do yourself a favor and head to Stella. While the quality has gone down at several OKC restaurants over the past couple of years, Stella has improved dramatically. Stella's limited wine list makes it a close second to the Metro, but it has easily passed Ludivine, Patrono, and Vast. Great service, and food reasonably priced.

Perhaps the best brunch I've had in OKC. Superb. The service was spot on and the food was delicious. Espresso machine was broke, but everything else was perfect. Can't wait to go back.

The flow of service was way off—the meatball appetizer appeared after my salad, entrees were dropped before salads and appetizers were cleared and my entree plate was snatched away like they needed it and the silverware.

The food itself was good, but not worth a special trip. As for Stella being called “Modern Italian”, well not so much in my opinion. Offering pizza and a few pasta selections doesn’t make a restaurant truly Italian.

Looking for fantastic food, wonderful service, and a small atmosphere? This is the right place. The Italian food and wine at Stella did not disappoint. Highly recommend this dinner stop for anyone. Be sure to top off the evening with their candy bar desert. You'll be in heaven.

The brie starter was incredible. lasagna and sausage pasta dishes were just ok, therefor disappointed with our main choices. Cheesecake was delicious and beautifully presented with birthday wishes - made the birthday gal very happy! We tried a couple of different drinks, not very exciting. Nice ambience, modern but not stuffy. Waitress didn't really know the dishes or drinks but was doing her best. Price as expected. Overall enjoyed our dinner, but a little underwhelmed. Worth giving it another chance though.

It’s always a risk to return to an old favorite after a long absence, but Stella remains as fantastic as ever. The food was excellent, clearly fresh and homemade and absolutely delicious. Our server team was friendly and helpful. Really glad we had the chance to come back here. Highly recommended!

The pizza was cold. The wind blew our champagne glass over (not their fault but waiter did say “I told them to use wine glasses today). We had like 4-5 different waiters. One filled our water and spilled it all over the ground in front of us. The chicken pasta dish was waaaay to spicy and did not even mention spice on the menu. Not a good experience. Probably will not return for a looooong while.

Great service. Food was horrible and vastly overpriced. $16 crab dip was canned tuna with few pieces of crab, worst app I’ve ever had. Pizza was decent but over priced. Sausage pasta was $19 and was horrible. Great service, cheaply made bad food.

While this is one our go-to places because it is consistently delish made with quality ingredients, expert service and cool vibe, today I had the frittata (sausage and veggies - topped with lightly dressed greens and parm) brunch special....along with the beautifully presented and well chosen cheese plate. I have yet to be underwhelmed, much less disappointed, in any dining experience I've had over the years!
