Two of our party had two different fish special and gave the Sea Bass specials 7 out of 10. Not very special! My chicken parmigiana was very ordinary and also a 7. Salads and crabs cakes were very good and would go again for them.

I was very pleased with Stella’s. The wine and the food were excellent. I had the fried calamari and Italian chicken. The wine was Cabernet Sauvignon paso Robles. Perfect!

We booked but we waited 20 minutes to be seated. and the host was not even concerned. She didn t apologize once for the wait. Like it s normal . All the vegetables were extremely cold. Tomatoes were almost frozen impossible to cut. Bruschetta were not good at all. The waiter was nice tough. The pasta were ok . The pizza was excellent.

Our first time to Stella's and certainly not our last. We were staying at the Monarch up the hill and the valet recommended the restaurant, and boy are we glad he did. We're former New Yorkers, so our standards for Italian are pretty high. And Stella's met them with flying colors. From the appetizers to the specials and the wine selection, completely delicious from start to finish. Our waiter Ivan was outstanding. We will absolutely be paying them another visit on our next trip to the OC. Highly recommend!
