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.

I would not recommend this place at all. Appetizer we ordered all came burned, had to send it back. Then it took an hour just to get our order. We will never be going back to this place. There are plenty of dining option around this area, no need to go to a sub par place.

The service was great, the food was great, but the portion were slim. Very little chicken with the risotto and was not spicy at all. However the red snapper was amazing.

Stella never disappoints. This is a place with a creative seasonal menu, Italian based but this in no Olive Garden. They DO have great pasta, but also interesting wood fired pizzas, creative sauces, and great bread and salads.

We went to Stella with a group of 6 after
My son’s college graduation. While it was not what I expected (my fault for not looking at the menu) it was very good. I was thinking we would be having lunch but they only had a brunch menu at 1pm so there were not many non-breakfast entrees available to choose from. That said, the food was very good and the staff was very attentive. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for brunch.

Stella's Modern Italian Cuisine is not only one of our favorites restaurants in Oklahoma City - but, one of our favorite places period! They keep their menu fresh, with wonderful seasonal items, a VERY WELL Priced & Comprehensive Wine List & great service. We always have a great experience & they treat people very, very well.

We live Stella’s for the location and the food. Food is always good. Service is very attentive. Only draw back is they are a little slow. Took over 45 min to get our food, we did have 8 in our party however. But have been there with 4 and was slow as well. Overall great place!

We ordered the mushroom carbonara, which is no longer on the menu, and it the chef was able to make it anyway. It was INCREDIBLE! They should totally bring it back! The whole experience was amazing and we will definitely be back!

The service was terrible. We waited 45 minutes for three bowls of pasta that weren’t even good. By the time we got the food we were wanting to leave. The inside was freezing and the AC was blowing so hard on us they turn the AC off but it still didn’t help. We had come back here because we had a bad experience a few years ago and wanted to give it another shot, definitely regret that decision

This was our first time at Stella after several recommendations from friends. Atmosphere and service was out of this world. Charcuterie platter with artisan cheese was fabulous, as were our desserts. Entrees were above average but really didn't meet the hype we had going in to the meal. We felt the dinner menu was somewhat limited. I am very happy we went and experienced the restaurant. I would definitely go back if it were suggested in conversation, and would certainly recommend if you're in the mood for Italian and have never been.
