Got the cornbeef hash w/ egg. Corned beef was nice, the potatoes were bland and soggy. The egg fried medium was properly cooked but no salt, herbs no seasonung whatsoever. Blandest brunch ever. No offer of hot sauce or any condiments. The coffee was so weak I gave up after two cups. Disappointing
We made a reservation but had to wait 20 minutes for a table, the noise level was very high, we had to yell to speak but it grew quieter as the night wore on. The food was pretty good and service was friendly.
Great food. Waiters were more than attentive. A little too noisy.
Food and service was very good, and pricing was reasonable. It was a little loud only because there was a group of ladies celebrating an occasion.
The menu and concept has a lot of potential. However, food is over salted and masked all the flavors that its ingredients offer.
Meal was great. Hard place to hold a conversation
Stella is a nice restaurant. I showed up a little late and they would not sit my girlfriend without me. The bar area is relatively limited so she couldn't grab a drink so she had to wait awkwardly. I'm passing blame for my tardiness, but they weren't doing me any favors. As soon as I arrived about 8min after the reservation they sat us. Service was pretty quick but hectic. Waitress seemed like she was frantically moving table to table but got the job done. It was on the loud side in the restaurant even though I couldn't hear any sort of music, made it a little difficult to hear each other. Also, tables were closely packed so you might get the feeling that other's are listening in on your conversation.
Otherwise, the food was great if you're okay with a moderately pricey night out.
Everything was great except for noise level at the tables.
Always love the food.
Ovi Is by far the best waiter in town! What a wonderful experience overall!
Stella is a find, everything was wonderful from start to finish. The fried zuccinhhi appetizer scrumptious and our entrees both a bologna pasta and the swordfish divine. The noise level which I always worry about, was not an issue and the large windows facing the park made for a feel like we were in a garden. Stella has a cool vibe, modern decor and we will be back.
I really enjoy the Brunch menu and service at Stella. It has great quality food and service at a good price.
My boyfriend and I had dinner last night, it was delicious, our waiter was very good, food came out steaming hot , huge delicious portions. We are definitely going back. We added Stella to our favorite Italians restaurants list.We loved everything about this place
We had a wonderful experience at Stella. Excellent food and service! My only suggestion would be to try to alter the acoustics a bit so that it isn't so loud.
Stella is stellar! The steak was amazing!! Ambiance was very nice and the service was excellent. We’ll definitely be back.
Amazing!! The food was fabulous. Will definitely be back
Brunch is always fabulous.
Cozy. Delicious. Its like comfort food minus the sweats. I go here for dinner all the time and I love it.
Food and service were amazing! Had the short ribs with gnocchi and cream sauce. Simply amazing. Best meal I had while in Boston.
Stella has a nice menu and the main dining room with bar is very modern and ambient. We were seated in a back room which didn't have the ambiance, was really loud, and the music felt like a club rather than a nice Italian restaurant. Our service was mediocre, likely because she had too many tables including large ones. The wine list left something to be desired and the food was just OK. we were expecting a little more special of an experience and left feeling like we weren't welcomed.
We met a friend for an after theater dinner and our expectations were fairly low, but wow we were so wrong. The service was very good and our waitress (I hate "server") was very nice and appropriate (not intrusive, but attentive). The food was above average - I had the steak (which was good for the price), my wife and our friend both had and liked the swordfish. The food preparation and presentation was clean, and it tasted very good. I also like the room's clean design. We will definitely visit again.
The food was good. The service was fine given how busy the restaurant was.
The piped-in music was waaay too loud!! You crowd a lot of people into your space which means the talk level is very high. When you add music to it, no one dining can comfortably hear each other and one has to nearly shout to be heard. The music is unnecessary. Why do you have it at all? To make the place "exciting"? Excitement doesn't come from piped-in music, it comes from the company you keep when dining and your food. Diners don't need anything else.
Trust the good you got going - a great location and menu. Cut out the music. It doesn't add anything to the vibe or ambiance except NEEDLESS ANNOYING NOISE.
Great place, great atmosphere, great food, had a fabulous time would definitely go again.
Comfortable and attractive atmosphere. Great menu, not too big. Everything came out tasting delicious.
Amazing food atmosphere definitely go here.
Manager/host? Was nice initially and then every time we wanted to tell him how nice everything was, he would “suddenly” see someone he knew and avoid us. We are not from Boston, and while I understand catering to your local, more likely to come back soon clients, we do have friends in Boston, including two who are new to the area. And based on his bizarre/poor behavior alone, I would not return. Plus, two salads, two dinners, one side, no drinks or dessert was $120 with tip seems expensive. Add being ignored or avoided and it’s not a good value.
The food was delicious. The service was great. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. We like the drinks, too!
Went on a quiet week night so may not hold always but we adored our meal and the service. Never write a review but this place was great. Even my glass of wine was exquisite.
Food was good, although way too salty. Our server was not the most responsive to repeated requests. The noise level was intolerable to me and my party.
Didn’t know what to expect but it was yummy! Awesome drink called the lovebird too.
Place is ok. Food was alright but didn’t have a ton of flavor. Drinks were just ok. Only thing that was good was the service.
I likely won’t be going back and it’s probably just based on the lack of flavor to food
We go to Stella on a regularly basis. The food is always good with excellent service. Great Italian enters.
Staff is very friendly! Food is good, my choice wasn’t the best, but everything else seemed amazing! Will go back again :)
Very nice staff, but felt shorted on food serving and squished in a corner.
Made a reservation for Valentine’s Day without knowing that the menu was prix fixe. They made no mention of this and it was $72 a person. Usually Stella is pretty affordable but after buying a bottle of wine at the bar (which was before we knew the price of dinner) we were angry about the poor value. That, plus balloons and fake rose petals made for an underwhelming anniversary/ v day. The food is always great there. But to have a prix fixe with unnecessary double appetizers for the table and double desserts was just a transparent ploy by management to dig into the wallets of their customers. Probably won’t be returning ever again.
We had a wonderful double birthday celebration. I was able to make modifications to my meal so I. Luis stay within my healthy eating way.
It had been a while since my last visit to Stella, and it was just as superb as I had remembered. The arugula salad is always fresh and the fried artichoke was delicious and perfect for sharing. All the pasta dishes are excellent too. I was with two friends and we wanted to share everything. The waiter split the salad and the pasta for us without our asking him to do so. It was the perfect place for excellent food, service, and atmosphere for gathering.
I knew things were off to a great start when I was welcomed by a friendly, professional at the valet parking spot at the restaurant. Our waitress was great and the food was amazing. Everyone found something on the menu and I was with too picky diners. My only suggestion would be more specials would have been interesting. We had the beets, arancini, and artichoke dishes for appetizers and the gnocchi and short rib entrees. We followed it up with gelato and expresso. Thanks for making my birthday dinner a success.
