I’ve been to Stella on multiple occasions and the food here never disappoints. Great spot for dinner with the girls, or special occasions (or just because it’s Thursday).
Don't bother if you don't live in the neighborhood. They won't like you.
Great spot. I especially love their brunches any time of year.
Great restaurant with consistently high standards, good food and very friendly and good service.
The asparagus cream and poached egg pasta is always amazing! Great options for vegetarians and those who are gluten free.
Love love love the food here, but it's overpriced italian. Love the bar scene and cocktail list in this swanky establishment, but it can be very loud. It's dark and mysterious but my parents have to use their phone flashlight to read the menu.
Beautiful interior with a nice outdoor space. The chairs aren't the most comfortable outside, but it's not a deal breaker either. Food was good. Had the Braised Shortrib with Gnocchi and loved it. Solid drinks as well. Will repeat.
classic, always good food, ambiance and cocktails.
Simply the best! Great food and amazing value for such high quality! Scene is almost as good as the food and drink.
Excellent Food And Great Atmosphere. Recommend for any occasion.
Another one that had it's peak at least a decade ago, but still delivers a decent meal. With so many new and fabulous spots, you may choose to dine elsewhere, but this place is still ok.
We absolutely love their Brunch Sunday - go back time and time again!
one of the top restaurants in Boston, always a must go to out of town guest youre trying to impress.
Fun atmosphere, delicious food and friendly service. Love their brunch as well.
Best meal I've had in a very long time! Every single dish/course was outstanding!
I like Stella. Ive been here a few times and will definitely go back.
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.
