Excellent food and service. Wonderfully run Resteraunt. Large portions, great seafood, pasta and veal.
Short ribs were outstanding, my guest enjoyed her paella, our waitress was very attentive, service was great! Will definitely go back!
Always excellent! They go above and beyond especially during difficult times. On rhe expensive side but delicious!
We just dined at Stella for our first time. The food and service were both.wonderful. We highly recommend it and will be back!
Always a great meal! Everything was delicious! Perfect!
We love it at this restaurant
The chef,owner always greets us and talks to us at some point which is special
Every meal has a personal touch and constantly improves
Very nice outdoor dining experience. Great food and service .
While on vacation in the area this place came highly recommended from a totally stranger on a FB group for food. They had posted their meal, and Boy were we happy to have had found this total gem! The food was amazing! Seriously AMAZING! We had the dates, out of this world, burrata was creamy and the acid from the tomatoes married it well. The country style shrimp I believe was delish, the short ribs was fall off the bone tender, then dessert was a warm banana bread pudding, of course it was topped with vanilla ice cream! My 8yr old son was even talking about how good everything was! 5star
Side note it is BYOB cash only and the awesome waitress mention after the summer season they only do weekends, and make a reservation! Cheers
Everything we ordered was delicious. Appetizers & main course. The veal was something I almost never order. It was amazing.
Delicious as usual ! Great service wonder meal during tough times !
The meal is absolutely delicious we all enjoyed it we were like four friends hanging out and it was just amazing
Well, we got rained out! I mean we really got rained out. But, the staff was awesome and even though we were soaked, and only got to eat our appetizers halfway, they were very accommodating. The owner gave us our entrees without charge, he was very nice and we can’t wait to go back. Alas, when we got home abs are our entrees we were blown away. The Sole and Salmon were some of the best we’ve ever had. Burrata was great, although not extremely creamy. We will be back next week and hopefully no rain!!! Great food and great staff.
Other than being sat in the Sun on the side street everything was great
I had the stuffed dates and the low country shrimp dishes were delicious! The servers were friendly and helpful.
Due to the COVID-19, we sat in the next block in the dark. Not too happy about this. As a result we had to use our iPhones for the whole meal to see. Great food that arrived luke warm . Slightly too expensive for what it was. Service cheerful and attentive. We definitely go back, but after the Covid-19 is over.
Great food! Had meatball appetizer, Labne salad, Short ribs and Lemon Sole. Worth the price!
Service was very slow. Don't know if this is because of Covid or what - 1st time here.
Thank god it's BYOB or we would have gone thirsty most of the meal.
Biggest problem was the time it took for appetizers to arrive (almost an hour) and then the meal (1/2 hour after appetizers).
We were seated on the side street, not in front of the restaurant.
Being that it's outside, there is a breeze coming off the ocean and even though it's a couple blocks from the ocean, it's very breezy. Can be cold if it's in the mid 70's at night (as it was that night). Don't know if in front of the restaurant is not as breezy
Would come here again when we can dine inside. Hopefully the service will be quicker then.
In this crazy time dealing with the pandemic, our dinner was served outside. The service, attentiveness of the staff was perfect and most of all - our dinner was absolutely delicious.
Went to Stella for dinner on 8/20/20. They had a decent amount of tables set up outside but were distanced on the side street where we ate. Had a super yummy date appetizer that I shared with my husband it was a bit small but delicious. Then I had the eggplant entree and my husband had the low country shrimp. Both were very good. The polenta with the shrimp were so tasty. My eggplant was very good and the portions were a nice size. For dessert we had the bread pudding which I really liked because it wasn’t too sweet just sweet enough. This is a bring your own place and only cash is accepted. When I. Town we will definitely come again.
Always a great meal with great service. Highly recommend you check this place out.
Fantastic meal...stuffed dates, Leban salad and low country shrimp w/ polenta...I will definitely be back!
Perfect night! We will be back soon.
Good Northern Italian cuisine. Will return next time we're in town.
Had the Crab and Sole and the Paella and both were excellent. Dates to begin are the best appetizer I’ve ever had. Service was quick and friendly. Stelladid not disappoint!!
The food was once again quite good. The white mussels were tremendous. The Labne Salad is very good. The cod and crab was very good and the seafood far diablo special was very good to excellent. The fish in the far diablo was excellent as was the sauce.
Stella is doing an amazing job under difficult circumstances.
Excellent food and excellent service. We will be back!
Had a lovely meal at Stella, on the sidewalk around the corner from the restaurant. The food was excellent, service was a little slow, though admittedly the wait staff had to walk a ways with food. Overall, a very good meal during these strange pandemic times
Food was served delicious and hot and Service was excellent! Would definitely eat there again!!
I understand, all business are struggling. We had to sit across the street from restaurant. People walking dogs, cars stopping to see what we were eating. Poor staff dodging cars to bring food. Salmon was good I had Chicken Milinase..it was burnt. Should make sure that food is cooked properly if guests have to dine under different conditions. Please cover food when crossing bost public street.
Great as always
Our night at Stella was really nice. It was our anniversary. We had an amazing meal. We enjoyed each course. My husband especially enjoyed the labne salad. I thought my entree, the fennel sausage with orecchiette was cheesy and hearty and just so good. I would recommend Stella to everyone.
As always everything was wonderful
I’ll go back!
Our first visit, Vinny and Gabby were fantastic. The food far exceeded my expectations. Everything that we had was quite good. I over ordered as i usually do. I felt safe outside. The staff all properly wore masks (and gloves) without exception.
We were in the "across the street" location and this in no way diminished our experience.
Really outstanding meal.... great service. Hard to have ambiance on a sidewalk but they did a good job.
Veal honestly the best I have had in long time....
Good food , attentive wait staff. Due to COVID we were outside on the sidewalk but the staff did a nice job.
My husband and I truly loved our anniversary meal last Friday at Stella’s! We usually make an annual vacation to the NJ shore and have a much anticipated dinner at Domenico’s. Unfortunately, we saw that Domenico’s closed for good last November. So we were forced to branch out. We chose Stella’s based on their great reviews. We couldn’t agree more with the reviews. The dishes were creative and prepared expertly. Unfortunately it was during COVID rules. So we enjoyed our meal outside. But the service was excellent even though we were across the side street! It as. The fact that it’s also a BYOB makes it even better! I think we’ve found our new fav!
Excellent Food and Service
Delicious food, bright and cheery staff, our table was under an overhang out front - perfect for these trying times!!!
Outdoor dining on a Tuesday evening during the pandemic was acceptable in accordance to social distance dining requirements. We've typically dined at this location for years, including their previous owned restaurant, LoBianco, and always found it to be one of our favorites. Again, we were pleasantly pleased with the food which was outstanding, as was the service.
The outside area is super cute and the food was amazing! You must go!
