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.

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

Service was a little diffident- didn’t receive the wine we ordered our waitress didn’t seem to be paying much attention to pace, but we’ll definitely be back. Their candy bar dessert is worth the trip alone

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.

It was good, not outstanding-definitely not worth the prices. Service was excellent. Nothing that makes it stand out as someplace to return soon, however.

Stella has become my go to place when I am in OKC. There is something to be said about the owner Lori being at the restaurant, greeting you and imaparting her personal touch at the restaurant. The chef plus the waitstaff are superb, and they have been with Stella for a long time.

Reservation was promptly seated, and Stella staff provided information on daily additions which were an excellent opportunity to try new items. We had a daily addition, a selection from the regular menu, and a selection off- menu that happened to be available. All were very well prepared and delicious. Service was attentive without being interruptive. great choice for Oklahoma City dining.

We had the steak tenderloin pizza which is amazing and the chicken scallopini which was also very good. The restaurant was noisy for dinner, but very nice. We dined there before a show at the theater and was finished in plenty of time to get there giving an hour and a half prior to the show.

Great food and service! We were in the back part of the restaurant and it was lunchtime. So, there were some loud groups; but that’s to be expected. Overall I would highly recommend Stella’s.

The Ragu lunch was a rather small portion that was dominated by the red sauce. The chicken wrap luncheon special sandwich was excellent with generous portions.
On line menu does not define what the "sides" are.

The only thing that people need to know going in is that it's a bit on the pricey side. Other than that it's an awesome restaurant with great food and even better staff. As long as you know going in it isn't super cheap then you will have an excellent experience

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.
