A great neighborhood spot. The food is always good, service is attentive but not rushed, an active bar and the prices are reasonable.

Had a very enjoyable meal there- went on a Friday night and found a spot out front- had multiple courses and they were all very delicious. Service was also outstanding- all in all I would go back again and would highly recommend it. Menu is broad.

Great reputation: no disappointment regarding the food *- eventhough portions are huge. A bit of too much of everything in any dish however tasty.
The atmosphere: cold and uniform. It might be a trend, however what’s in your plate does not reflect on the ambiance- lab like.
Some other sort of trend: invading diner room(s) with untasty loud music from the bar area.
* Fixe menu with no other option available on VDay: we appreciated the last minute tiramisu request fulfilled; à la carte should always be available.

I have been to Stella many times. This time it was very dark so we could not see our food. The waitress was did not come back to the table for a long time so we could not order any other drinks. The place was almost empty but we still had horrible service. My short rib was luke warm/cold and over seasoned.

I've never a bad meal - ever! When ever we are not sure where to go we both usually say "let's go back to Stella" Thanks for being so consistent

The location is great and the staff was wonderfully friendly. But all that doesn't help when the noise level is so over the top that you cannot have a conversation without shouting and asking: "Say that again, please."
The level of exhaustion after being exposed to so much noise is overwhelming. Rugs on the floor and fabrics on the wall would do wonders.

Outstanding evening of excellent food and great service. Awesome unique cocktails, the “Cucumber Blossom Martini” is a must! Salads, pizzas and apps were fabulous. We will be back!

We had an awesome meal but had a really unpleasant experience with the waitress. She was constantly trying upsell us on wine and food and was incredibly pushy. It was laughable at a certain point.

In regards to ambiance, felt like I should be on E and wearing a mesh tank top - pumping the eurotrash disco beats (my mom was offended by the lyrice with swears!) Food has gone way downhill since I've been here a few years ago, too, to plain mediocre. You can do better all around for half the price at Pappa Razzi.

Pork was over cooked. Fresh tomato’s in the appetizer were hard in the center.

Great night at the restaurant. Tables are close together but still able to have a nice conversation. The food is very good - we like to share plates and they were very accommodating. Please note the food comes out extremely hot - its like they have nuclear reactor to keep it warm. Only complaint is the limited glasses of wine available. Will go back

Have not been back for awhile & shame on us. Glad we got to make a couples date night & be served by Molly. Molly is the primary reason we enjoy Stellas!!!.

Have been coming here about once a year for many years. Loved the food, and the service was excellent despite the restaurant being very busy. My only disappointment, and it was a big one, was the noise. It was so loud that I could only hear about half of what my wife was saying from 3 feet away. This is the absolute noisiest restaurant experience that I can remember (including past experiences at Stella), and we go out to dinner in Boston about once a week. Maybe it was an unusual night in terms of the crowd that was on hand, but it's unlikely that we will ever return to Stella on a Friday or Saturday.

My husband and I had a very enjoyable time on New Years Eve. The menu was special for the evening and very good choices. The staff wasn’t overly friendly but good service. The manager was great when I ordered an appetizer but it came out like an entree. Simple mistake but he took it back and made it right. The food is so good!! Very romantic.
